    Good Story - Offensive Language

    I was very thrilled to read this book based on the recognition that has been given, however, when I start reading the book I found it that the language was very offensive. I did not find the story original since the description of the story talks about similar events than what hapened in the Mexican revolution.

    Extraordinaria

    Angeles Mastretta es una extraordinaria Autora. Sus novelas son un deleite de literatura, dejando un muy buen sabor de boca cuando uno las termina y con ganas de leer mas. Es un apuesta segura de leer algo elocuente y magico cuando uno lee sus obras al igual que otras autoras Mexicanas y latinas como Maria Amparo Escandon, Sara Sefchovich, Eladia Gonzalez y Laura Restrepo, entre otras.

    The best I have read in years

    Es una obra de literatura impactante y encantadora que no le permitirá dejar de leerla hasta el final. Y no sólo eso, sino que le narrará una historia cautivadora ocurrida en México durante y después de la Revolución Mexicana. Catalina, la protagonista de la novela, se casa muy joven con un político, mayor que ella, y muy prominente de la ciudad Mexicana de Puebla. A medida que la carrera de él, Andrés Atencio, va aumentando, Catalina se ve envuelta en más y más responsabilidades, lo cual hace maravillosamente. Estas responsabilidades incluyen criar a varios de los otros hijos de Atencio. Luego a medida que la novela va avanzando ella se entera de críticas fuertes a su marido, de las luchas por poder, de los acusaciones de asesinato por parte de su marido y Catalina , quizás como vía de escape, hasta busca amor en dos distintos amantes. Al final, como en todas las tragedias de la novela hay un impactante suceso que quizá libera a Catalina de todo el peso que ha tenido que aguantar. Esta novela ha sido traducida hasta el presente a 11 idiomas y al principio narra el amor inicial y hasta sumiso de Catalina por el General Andrés Atencio y la progresiva desvinculación de ella a un tiempo de su papel de subordinación conyugal y de su aceptación del contexto político que pondrá en duda sus ideales revolucionarios. Es una novela bellamente escrita que no debe dejar de leer.

    THE STORY WAS OUTSTANDING AND TOUCH HEART

    THE IMPRESSION OF THE CHARACTER IS TREMENDOUS ADMIRABLE, SHE WAS STRONG AND INTELLIGENT TO LIVE AT THAT TIME WHERE THE OPINION OF THE WOMEN WERE NOT ACCEPTABLE.
