Publisher's Summary

Esmeralda Santiago's memoir, Cuando Era Puertorriqueña, continues with El Amante Turco. At 21, Esmeralda moves from Brooklyn to begin a life with Ulvi, a domineering, condescending Turkish immigrant several years older. After years of abuse, Esmeralda finds the strength to earn a degree from Harvard and leave Ulvi, ultimately proving, "There will always be another train."

Terribly Disappointing

I loved the first book. The second book was okay. The El Amante Turco is bad. The first half is a rehash of the past two books. The new material is boring, like an uninteresting soap opera. I made it to chapter six (there are a total of nine). I am giving up on it. I am no longer interested in what happens. Sorry, but at least I enjoyed her first book.

Intrigante

es una historia que te atrapa.
muy bien narrada, la actuación y expresiones le da mucha vida al relato.
