Booka Audiobooks presenta en exclusiva y por primera vez el audiolibro en castellano Popol Vuh, El Libro Sagrado de los Mayas. El Popol Vuh es sin lugar a dudas el más importante de los textos mayas que se conservan. Se distingue no sólo por su extraordinario contenido histórico y mitológico, sino por sus cualidades literarias, las que permiten que se le pueda colocar a la altura de grandes obras épicas como el Ramayana hindú o la Ilíada y la Odisea griegas.

Escuchar este libro resultó muy revelador por las grandes coincidencias que hay entre sus líneas y las líneas de otros libros que hablan de la creación de la humanidad y las creencias de las deidades.
En verdad muy bueno.

La historia desde un principio te tiene al filo del suspenso, altamente recomendable sobre todo si gustan de los enredos y tramas de época. Aunque pareciera que la falta de efectos especiales podría hacer monótona la escucha, la verdad es que poco a poco uno se adentra en los personales e imagina no sólo panorámicas visuales si no también auditivas.

Richard Wiseman has been troubled by the realization that the self-help industry often promotes exercises that destroy motivation, damage relationships, and reduce creativity: the opposite of everything it promises. Now, in 59 Seconds, he fights back, bringing together the diverse scientific advice that can help you change your life in under a minute, and guides you toward becoming more decisive, more imaginative, more engaged, and altogether more happy.

At first I did not know what to expect because I was guessing "this will be another motivational book, where magic is the key" but no, it is about getting the best of every minute of the day, still it is a book to listen and listen and re listen as many times as possible to get the whole point, because some ideas are kind of not so credible at first, but yes they work.

What would have made German Word Booster better?

Is not a book to listen! Is more a book to practice with the whole course

Would you ever listen to anything by Vocabulearn again?

I don't know! I mean what's the use? Only if I am taking a German course somewhere else but this book itself is not necessary and by the time I caught in count it was to late! Because I thought some more interesting way to learn german could be possible

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrator?

A german girl or guy but in another kind of book I guess

What character would you cut from German Word Booster?

None

Any additional comments?

Don't buy it unless you like rap and own the complete course

What would have made Rush Hour Express French better?

It is necessary the workbook or student's book to understand this book!

What was most disappointing about Berlitz’s story?

Is not a story or whatever is just people like repeating words and phrases, I don't even remember what's the topic of this book

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Is more a complement of the physical books than a book itself

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Rush Hour Express French?

None, because if someone owns the physical books maybe this audiobook should be the complement

What did you love best about Angeles y Demonios [Angels and Demons]?

La manera en que el protagonista va resolviendo los enigmas y la forma en que la ficción y la realidad se mezclan tan bien, que uno no sabe de pronto, si lo que se narra es posible o solo imaginario.

What other book might you compare Angeles y Demonios [Angels and Demons] to and why?

Con el código da Vinci sin duda pero también con algún otro buen libro de acción y detectives

What about Raul Amundaray’s performance did you like?

Las caracterizaciones están geniales

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Mas que llorar o reír me puso a pensar en como los medios de comunicación son capaces de ocultar algo del conocimiento general simplemente porque pueden.

Would you consider the audio edition of Eragon [en Espanol] to be better than the print version?

Si, definitivamente los efectos de sonido hacen que el oyente se sumerja en la historia y cree imágenes muy especificas que el escritor desea evocar.

What did you like best about this story?

La manera en que Eragon y Zafira logran esa conexion

Have you listened to any of Karl Hoffmann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, esta es la primera vez que lo escucho

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Si, mas su duración no lo permitía, sin embargo es muy útil cuando uno va de viaje.

Any additional comments?

Lo he escuchado mas de una vez y siempre me emociona la narrativa e historia

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to a friend, because it is clear and direct, the author/narrator is totally aware of the feelings that involve to throw away things we don't really need in life and it begins with the basics of " do you own things or do things own you?"

What about Andrew J. Mellen’s performance did you like?

His voice is loud and clear, I think this book is best narrated by his own writer!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed when I identify myself in some cases

Any additional comments?

Sometimes we are not able to un stuff our emotional life because we can not un stuff even our physical life
