Publisher's Summary

Un periodista investiga la apasionante vida de una antepasada suya, una mujer que vivió intensamente el siglo XX desde los convulsos años de la república hasta la caída del muro de Berlín. Un periodista recibe la propuesta de investigar la vida de su bisabuela, Amelia Garayoa, una mujer de la que solo sabe que huyó abandonando a su marido y a su hijo poco antes de que estallara la guerra civil española. Para rescatarla del olvido deberá reconstruir su historia desde los cimientos, encajando, una a una, todas las piezas del inmenso y extraordinario puzle de su vida.Marcada por cuatro hombres que la cambiarán para siempre, la historia de Amelia es la de una antiheroína presa de sus propias contradicciones que cometerá errores que no terminará nunca de pagar y que acabará sufriendo, en carne propia, el azote despiadado tanto del nazismo como de la dictadura soviética.Un audiolibro que rebosa intriga, política, espionaje, amor y traición. Desde los años de la Segunda República española hasta la caída del Muro de Berlín, pasando por la Segunda Guerra Mundial y la Guerra Fría, constituye un apasionante retrato del siglo XX.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

    "A very good audiobook to listen to in SPANISH!!!"
    Where does Dime Quién Soy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've read (listened to) a lot of books (audiobooks), and this is a good choice if you want to listen to something good in Spanish.I rank this audiobook in the top ten list of audiobooks in Spanish (Fron the options you find in Audible)I strongly recommend Audible to keep on improving the catalog of books in other languages (Spanish, French, Italian).


    What other book might you compare Dime Quién Soy to and why?

    Es una novela con alto contenido histórico, por lo que aunque sin ser novela histórica como tal, lo compararía con obras de Colleen McCullough o Santiago Posteguillo que desafortunadamente no hacen parte de la propuesta de Audible para libros en español.


    What about Daniel Albiac and María Belén Roca ’s performance did you like?

    A very good production!Buena voz, sin aburridor sonido de fondo tipo radio-novela de los 60's


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Aunque el libro tiene algunos puntos en los cuales la autora se extiende en detalles que no aportan mucho a la trama, en general es un buen libro que mantiene entretenido al lector y expectante a cómo finalizará la obra.Así que en particular, lo que más me gustó fue el final.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this audiobook for those who are looking for a good book in Spanish.

    Although I enjoy audiobooks both in English and Spanish. My main interest is to encourage the publication of audiobooks in Spanish.

    Story
    "Épica monumental del siglo XX"

    Guauu! vaya novela histórica que ha escrito Julia Navarro.

    Aunque debo confesar que la heroína (Amelia, una super-espía) a veces me pareció más increíble que creer que James Bond. No obstante, la evolución de los personajes en la novela es notable. El marco histórico abarca los acontecimientos más notables de Europa en el siglo XX: revolución rusa, guerra civil española, segunda guerra mundial, holocausto, guerra fría y la caída del muro de Berlin.

    A pesar de que la novela es muy larga, es adictiva y uno no quiere que termine.

    El trabajo de los 2 narradores es excelente.

    Story
    "I'll finish it out of curiosity."

    The one positive thing I can say is that the historical research is interesting and well done. (it got the three stars). I'm half way into it and I tired of it. None of the characters stand out or are likable at all. There is no depth to any of them. Amelia seems to be involved in every important event of the XX century and I still can't figure out why. Other that beautiful, there is nothing outstanding about her. The narration, by so many different people is so confusing that after a while, I forget about who is the one telling the story. The "scavenger hunt" way of developing the narration seems childish and makes the book like a looong soap opera.

    Story
    "One of the best books I've read (listen)"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dime Quién Soy to be better than the print version?

    I have not had the opportunity to actually "read" the book. However, I feel that the narrators, with their accents and interpretation, gave the characters a little more personality.


    What other book might you compare Dime Quién Soy to and why?

    This is the first book from Julia Navarro, but I find some similarities to La Casa de los Espiritus of Isabel Allende


    What about Daniel Albiac and María Belén Roca ’s performance did you like?

    I loved their accents.


    If you could take any character from Dime Quién Soy out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would either take Max Von Shumman and of course Amelia Garayoa


    Any additional comments?

    This was a lenghly book, but a great story that made my commute to work more fun.

    Story
    "An intense book full of surprising events"

    This is a wonderful story, written in an unconventional way. It's a journalist' journey to retrace the steps of his great grandmother, the amazing, courageous, almost fantastic heroine of the story. Its dialogue is very believable. Once you become interested in the main character, it becomes a page turner. Julia Navarro did an incredibly detailed research on the history of Europe from the 1930s to the 1980. The book is full of surprises. The story is gripping and believable. I recommend it to people who enjoy understanding history from a different point of view. It's not only about Spain but all Europe. At the end there were some minor points she left for the reader to assume. It is not historical fiction, but it's characters are intensely affected by historical events.
