    "intriguing, heartbreaking gem"

    I listen to Spanish audiobooks occasionally to keep up my comprehension, and I find that Audible disappoints in its offering of audiobooks in Spanish. I was pleasantly surprised by how engaging this listen was. This tale of a widower in Uruguay, set in the 1950s, is revealed through a series of journal entries. It offers a glimpse of life in a very different place and time than our own, but I found myself able to relate to the character and his struggles.

    "Una joya de la literatura hispanoamericana"

    Mario Benedetti con descarnado realismo nos sumerge en esta historia de amor y desamor a los cincuenta a??os. Uno se siente arrastrado por la simpat??a que genera el protagonista pero a la vez el autor le hace entender el ambiente hostil que le rodea. Una lectura obligada para cualquier amante de la buena lectura.
