Criticas
New York Times best-selling romance author Howard has come up with a winning combination in her 12th book: a blend of romance and mystery la Hepburn-Tracy in its witty animosity but with today's sexual teasing and steamy explicitness. One evening, contemplating their imperfect love lives, Jaine and three of her female co-workers jokingly compose a list of requirements for the perfect man. The list is hard to keep quiet, however, and within a few days it becomes national news. But after one of the women gets killed, Jaine and her friends begin a search for the killer with the help of Jaine's handsome neighbor, a detective who soon falls for her. Ediciones Urano has translated five other novels by Howard, including Juego de sombras (All the Queen's Men, 2000) and Premonici"n mortal (Dream Man 2000). If there is any bone to pick with this translation, it is that it is sometimes too literal, turning American expressions like "don't hold your breath" and "my guts tell me" into exact Spanish versions that lose the original meaning. In another case, translator Martin Sanz wrongly uses the Spanish expression "no cay" esa breva," (literally translated as "that fig didn't fall") for sayings like "no such luck" or "fat chance." These are minor quibbles, though, and overall the translation flows smoothly. This 2001 best seller, particularly geared toward women, promises to be a popular item in bookstores and public libraries where there is no objection to profanity and explicit sex.
