4.0 out of 5 starsEl amante japonés de Rani Manicka.

Pienso, que al leerlo comenzamos a conocer las costumbres, formas de vida, sus necesidades, pensamientos de la población India atreves de sus personaje y el relato de su escritora. Lenguaje fluido y de facil comprensión nos brinda sus creencias,paisajes, religión, bailes y el fuerte arraigo a defender sus raices y darse cuenta de su valía como seres humanos . Recomiendo su lectura, pues nos atrapa de una forma muy sutil y a la vez maravillosa.
I bought the Spanish version by accident when I was trying to get the novel by Isabel Allende. The Spanish (it's translated from English!) is a bit difficult, partly because the action takes place in Asia and there are some words for exotic household trappings, etc. that I hadn't seen in the past The character of the main protagonist is well-developed, but a lot of the plot is simply hard to believe. The tone is sad. All in all, I was glad I purchased it.
Mystical book, about life itself, a love story within. Good plot and setting. Originally bought because I thought it was Isabel Allende's new book but that one comes out in September 2015. I kept it because I read about Rani Manicka and realized that I had previously read a book from her, "Mother of Rice" which I enjoyed a lot... Very interesting since it's written from many character's points of view. Looking forward to read the other Japanese lover as well!
4.0 out of 5 starsAnd I got a beautiful surprise. The book was so good

This book came to my kindle by mistake. I was looking for El Amante Japones by Isabel Allende. And I got a beautiful surprise. The book was so good. The characters, the plot, the love story, the description of the house. It is a very good story. I enjoyed it very much. It is based on customs of other countries, it goes to love...read it you will enjoy it. I am sure it comes in English too.
4.0 out of 5 starsEntretenido pero por momentos un poco denso..!

Esperaba más. El título sugiere una buena narracion, pero la historia del amante es breve. El relato da vueltas en historias paralelas relacionadas con la vida de la protagonista, sin embargo es un libro entretenido.
