Publisher's Summary

En esta «Historia de las Independencias» nos conduce por una fantástica aventura a través de los valientes procesos de las independencias latinoamericanas, que tuvieron su desenlace en los siglos XVIII y XIX, con la transformación de los poderes en Europa y la incesante búsqueda de las Américas de una identidad propia. Gracias a este relato seremos testigos del nacimiento de un Continente. Este relato lo llevará por:

  • Los antecedentes circunstanciales e ideológicos que dieron vida a los movimientos independentistas.
  • La fractura de España, el fortalecimiento del Imperio napoleónico, el surgimiento de Inglaterra como potencia mundial y los levantamientos americanos.
  • El nacimiento de un continente.
  • La creación de una América independiente.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

    What disappointed you about Historia de las independencias [The History of Independence]?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Diana Uribe again?

    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.


    What didn’t you like about Diana Uribe’s performance?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
