Publisher's Summary

Una cronica familiar que abarca generaciones y dos paises, Labreve y maravillosa vida de Oscar Wao cuenta la historia del gordiflon y solitario Oscar de Leon en su intento de convertirse en el J.R.R.Tolkien Dominicano y su desafortunada busqueda del amor. Pero Oscar solo es la ultima victima del fuku - una maldicion que durante generaciones ha perseguido a su familia,condenandoles a vidas de tortura, sufrimiento y amor desdichado. Con unos personajes inolvidables y una prosa vibrante e hipnotica, esta novela confirma a Junot Diaz como una de las mejores y mas deslumbrantes voces de nuestra epoca,y nos ofrece una sobrecogedora vision de la inagotable capacidad humana para perseverar y arriesgarlo todo por amor.

    Story
    "An instant dominican classic!"

    The modern dominican idiosyncrasy beautifully entangled between historical facts and human intimacies. It is hard not to think you are reading a real story due to the authenticity of the characters. The narrators definitely added to the richness of the experience.

    "Great characters, great pace, great story!"
    What did you love best about La breve y maravillosa vida de Oscar Wao [The Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao (Texto Completo)]?

    The book is character-driven in a credible way. The light touch of magical realism works well. I liked getting a flavor of Dominical life and political strife.


    What about Jesus Martinez and Laura Gomez ’s performance did you like?

    The performances are excellent, they embody the story without overpowering it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It's got pathos and bite- made me smile and wince.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll definitely read more Diaz.

    Story
    "Breve quizás pero maravillosa NO"

    La historia en sí no me gustó. Tuve que recorrer tres generaciones para terminar de conocer la vida de Oscar. El lenguaje, lleno de groserías casi en cada oración, me pareció desagradable. El enfoque de la mujer como solo un objeto sexual, por parte de casi todos los personajes masculinos, me disgustó. Las anotaciones de autor, aunque al principio interesantes, distraen demasiado, y alargan el texto. Finalmente la historia de la vida de Oscar está para el olvido.
    Escuchado como audiolibro, la narración me palacio muy buena.

    I like sci-fi and fantasy as well as an occasional good mystery.

    "Not for me."

    I couldn't finish. I can take a little foul language in a book, but it seemed like this had a curse word in every couple of sentences. some might like this, but not me. Jesus Martinez was fine as a narrator. I didn't get far enough to listen to Laura Gomez. Next!

    "Historia entretenida y amena"

    Este libro me dio momentos gratos y carcajadas. Muy recomendable para entender la cultura caribena y las desgracias durante el trujillato. Como lo describe el autor: Lo que el pueblo tiene que soportar en las dictaduras patrocinadas por EU, no solo en el caribe sino tambien en AL.
