No es tan interesante como algunos de los otros libros que he leído, pero había cierta información que podía usar.
Voy a ahorrar escribiendo una reseña hasta que lea la biografía de Lemony. Estoy demasiado confundido para escribir algo ahora.
Por extraño que parezca, ¡me llevó EXACTAMENTE un año terminar de leer Les Mis! Loco. Si bien me encanta la historia de Jean Valjean, Victor Hugo necesitaba urgentemente un editor. Aunque a menudo he despreciado las versiones abreviadas de libros en el pasado, la minucia íntegra con la que Hugo abarrota la historia fue demasiado para mí. Nadie necesita saber tanto sobre las alcantarillas parisinas. Ninguno.
Jodi Picoult's prolific and somewhat erratic catalogue of novels may be topped by the excellent "Keeping Faith." Picoult's story, as usual offers a major dilemma for her all-too-human characters. This time Mariah and Colin have just dissolved their marriage because Colin can't seem to keep his anatomy to himself when he gets around members of the opposite sex. Mariah, with Colin's blessing, will receive custody of their seven-year-old daughter Faith. Problems arise when Faith, who has never been in a church or been exposed to the bible, starts reciting biblical passages and speaking in tongues. Things get stranger when she seemingly performs a couple of miraculous cures. Word gets out and cultish religious fanatics start camping out around Mariah's house and Faith's miracles gain the attention of an infamous Tele-Atheist, determined to prove the whole thing a hoax. Picoult twists and turns the screws of this story of religion, fanaticism, parenting under the most extreme conditions, divorce and love. Like many of her her books, Picoult offers no pat answers, and for many the ending will be unsatisfying. I found the ending delicious.
i have not finished this book...it is big and in an argentine spanish that is sometimes difficult to understand, but it's also very poetic and reflective of turmoiled love (as far as i can tell)...i love the idea of the book as well 'hopscotch' where you jump from one chapter of the book to another...set in paris...with an argentine love story...i'm still reading it on and off...but i am definitely enjoying it when i pick it up!
