Overview

Nada (en español) by Carmen Laforet

Mientras vive con estrecheces en una casa misteriosa de la calle de Aribau, la joven Andrea conoce a un grupo de estudiantes ricos, que representan un contrapunto atractivo para la miseria de su vida cotidiana. Con sus nuevas experiencias, la inocente Andrea va averiguando poco a poco la verdad inquietante de las personas que la rodean. Entre la crisis existencial y el umbral de la madurez, Andrea emergerá de su apasionado viaje interior más sabia, más fuerte y llena de esperanza para el futuro.

Con su profunda penetración sobre la condición humana, la clásica novela de Carmen Laforet, inspirada en su propia vida, merece ocupar su lugar como una de las mejores novelas europeas del siglo XX.

"Profundamente conmovedor y fascinante….una de las grandes clásicas de la literatura europea contemporánea." -- Carlos Ruiz Zafon, autor del bestseller La sombra del viento

"Un trabajo de genio [que recuerda] a Sartre y Camus a la vez más moderno y más vibrante." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Una oscura obra de ficción hermosamente austere…Su inquietante relación con el clima politico y las actitudes sociales de la actualidad es dificíl de ignorar." -- San Fancisco Chronicle

"El espíritu de astuta resistencia que expresa la novela de Laforet…no ha perdido para nada su poder de persuasion." -- The New York Times Book Review

She gazed at him for a quick moment. "Nothing much." She murmured. She focused her gaze on the ground. "I just don't know what to do anymore."

Nada is a great story about a character's journey through a different time period in Spain's incredibly unforgettable history. The reader should understand the time during which Laforets character lived in, a time of women's repression of liberties and equality. What was then is nothing like now, including in Spain. Pick it up and read!

La novela te lleva por el viaje amargo de una nina en una ciudad que no conoce. Es bien descriptiva y no pareciera ser ficcion ya que las cosas que pasan le podrian pasar a cualquiera. Muy buena calidad.
