    This is one of the best books I have read in a long time! It is entertaining, I couldn't put it down and have read it and re-read it to get the full impact of this haunting and compelling story. I have to admit I had to sleep with the light on.

    Fantastic...excellent! This book is beyond my expectations. The story of La Llorona is a story I grew up with and this book took me back to my roots and was told even better than I remember. The cover is haunting and the illustrations are imprinted in my mind. I have read other versions, but know I finally understand the story of La Llorona. The other versions dwell on the murder and mix other modern day versions. I especially liked the accounts in the introduction. This is a book to share and ideal for research on the topic and campfire stories.

    A great disappointment

    The source of my disappointment with De Aragón's "The Legend of la Llorona" is twofold; content and price. The first dozen pages include discussion of some interesting research and theory on the part of De Aragón into the origins of the la Llorona legend. The rest of the book is devoted to what is apparently an attempt by De Aragón to create a la Llorona story. The first dozen pages are certainly not worth the $16.95 price tag and neither is the book in its entirety. The pages are littered with drawings, many full or half page, which taken together occupy the equivalent of more than 2 dozen pages so we are left with less than 70 pages of text which is very poorly laid out and rather large font. I was left feeling like I had paid $16.95 for the equivalent of much less than a paperback. I plan to return this book.
