Otravez Diana Uribe nos dementia con su gran narracion y excelente musica nuestra historia. Espero Muchas mas historias en Un futuro cercano.
The narrative, just like the voice of the author, is a challenge to any but the most throroughly prepared reader: The audiobook is full of repetitions of key words, sentences and facts. Part of that is due to the original structure (several CDs), but part of it seems like sloppy editing.
This was my third Audiobook by Diana Uribe. I LOVED "100 momentos que marcaron el mundo contemporáneo" and enjoyed "Historia de las civilizationes", which shares some of this book's drawbacks, but to a lesser degree. Diana Uribe is worth reading and listening to, but this is not her best work by far.
Not only does Diana Uribe tell her story, she LIVES it. While I enjoyed this in her other works, I found it unpleasant here: she often speeds up during passages she seems to find exciting, making it excruciatingly difficult to understand her (unless you are very familiar with the Columbian variety of Spanish)... especially proper names are sometimes incomprehensible, making it nearly impossible to follow the narrative. Furthermore, the author sometime becomes very loud, SHOUTING A FEW WORDS for no apparent reason. This is both painful and annoying, so after 2/3 of the audiobook I gave up.
Fewer repetitions, a strictly chronological approach and more background information would have made the audiobook much more enjoyable, but the most important improvement here would be a professional narrator - or a more professional performance on the part of the author.
