Mucha miseria en Jamaica

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-11-05

El libro habla sobre la historia de un doctor que pasa su vida entre los lujos de NY y la pobre Jamaica. Ha hecho mucho por estas personas, sin embargo a nivel familiar ha hecho poco. La narracion es bastante buena. Nuestro protagonista se siente un tanto infalible.
A nivel medico trata sobre temas relacionados con las enfermedades de los pobres (Tuberculosis), paludismo, etc.
Es una buena lectura, pesada en unos momentos pues en ocaciones se repite algunos temas.

El libro es excelente hasta el 60%, la intriga se maneja muy bien. El autor es muy descriptivo de los ambientes. Se requiere tener buen vocabulario para poder entender todos los ambientes, gestos de la gente, ademanes, etc. Muy bien narrado. No lo pongo excelente, pues con un poco de intuicion puedes adivinar que es lo que va a pasar al final. Sin embargo se puede terminar la lectura sin sentirte que has perdido el tiempo

Muy bueno, pero es pesado a nivel conceptos. Si te gusta mucho la fisica y las matematicas, este libro es un buen resumen de ambos conceptos. Lo recomiendo solamente si las dos cosas anteriores son de tu agrado. Son mas de 16 horas de conceptos matematicos.

Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

Acclaimed by the intellectuals of Spain's "Generation of '98," the poems and fiction of Rubén Darío reflect a pride in his country and in his fellow countrymen - many of whom were living in despair and disillusionment. Included here are several poems and the short story, "Huitzilopoxtli," which takes place during the Mexican Revolution and describes the hallucinatory brutality of war. In Spanish.

No sabia que Mr. Holmes era cocainomano. Muy bueno, no puedes deter cada capitulo. El audio es un tanto malo, pero pasable. La voz de Watson en muy grave, en algunos casos no se entiende bien por lo que tendras que subir un poco el volumen de tu audio.
