Bien ganado el premio. Disfrute mucho su lectura. La narrativa te mantiene al "borde de la silla" todo el tiempo hasta el final.

Con un lenguaje fresco y lleno de metáforas coloquiales y chispeantes, Juan Gabriel Vásquez recrea las vivencias extraordinarias de un hombre ordinario. Su estructura narrativa trastabillea con naturalidad adelante y atrás en la línea cronológica, atrapando al lector en una historia conmovedora en la que debe mantenerse alerta. La ficción está continuamente aderezada con referencias históricas que despiertan la curiosidad y suspicacia del lector. Leer "El ruido de las cosas al caer" en versión electrónica permite saciar las dudas con rapidez y veracidad.

La historia es interesante y esta bien escrito aunque me parece que el autor pudo haber sacado mas jugo a sus personajes
