Acclaimed short-story author Luis García Jambrina is a full professor of Spanish literature at the University of Salamanca—Spain’s oldest university. Here, Jambrina uses his intimate knowledge of the school to pen his debut novel. It’s the end of the 15th century, and law student Fernando de Rojas is investigating the mysterious death of a theology professor in Salamanca. But Fernando’s journey leads down a dangerous path through the city’s political unrest.

I was worried I would have a hard understanding Spanish as spoken in Spain. But not only was the Spanish slow and very clear, the narrator did an absolutely amazing job. The voices of the college age kids to the old men and old lady were absolutely distinctive. Amazing. I can't stress it enough. Great historical story. Great listen for students of Spanish, even for an old student such as myself, who want to improve their listening ability. Very highly recommend.
Although I enjoy audiobooks both in English and Spanish. My main interest is to encourage the publication of audiobooks in Spanish.
Una historia muy bien lograda con mucho suspenso sobre Fernando de Rojas y su "Celestina", con una excelente narración.
