“Disfruté este libro y te lo recomiendo. These types of books are great for the Spanish language student, they provide a stepping stone to the Harry Potter books and then the ‘everyday’ books such as those by Dan Brown. But be aware that this book is firmly in the B2+ level, due to use of the Argentinian ‘vos’ verb conjugation and localized vocabulary and colloquialisms. All explained of course, and there is also an useful preface on how to use the book, and a synopsis in English. I would have preferred the vocabulary definitions of the highlighted words to be at the end of each chapter rather than all together at the end of the book; since on the Kindle it is inconvenient to jump between bookmarks. Four stars, plus an extra one for the excellent value of money.“

“This is a very good book if you are studyig Spanish! The story is catchy, there are words and expressions in bold, so you can learn them in the glossary of the book, and you can also learn things about Buenos Aires! Highly recommended!”
“I really enjoyed this short story. It was not only a fun read but the level was pitched perfectly for those who have an intermediate level of Spanish. I’ll be looking out for more from this author.”

“Ideal para mis alumnos de español como lengua extranjera de nivel B2.2.
A ellos les encanta la historia y, a mí, como profesora, me parece que está muy bien escrita.
Capta el interés de mis alumnos y lo puedo adaptar al temario de nuestras clases. 😉
