Editorial Reviews

Review

"The feel of a night out with the girls...charming...undeniably fun."
- Miami Herald

"This lively debut novel...reads like the Hispanic version of Waiting to Exhale."
- New York

"As a guilty pleasure it ranks somewhere between Valrhona chocolate and Jimmy Choo shoes-I simply could not put it down."
- Whitney Otto, author of How to Make an American Quilt

"...the summer's must-have beach book."
- Latina magazine

"...a fresh spin on the best-of-friends novel that's funny, touching, and exhilarating. A winner!"
- Jennifer Crusie

"The Latina community has a rich new voice and Valdez-Rodriguez is it."
- Jeffrey Kluger, coauthor of Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13

"Dirty Girls sets out to prove Latina can mean anything-black, white, rich, poor, Spanish-speaking, not Spanish-speaking."
- The Miami Herald

"...Valdes-Rodriguez has written an incredible first novel, told in six distinct voices and points of view."
- Library Journal

"...in the end, it's the complex, finely drawn characters who make the book work."
- Rocky Mountain News

"...a heartfelt, fast-moving, and often funny page-turner."
- Booklist

"This season's most scrumptious book...a summer must."
- Advocate

"Those who liked The Joy Luck Club or
iThe Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood will enjoy The Dirty Girls Social Club...It is heartfelt, fast-moving, and often funny."
- Oklahoman

"(an) affecting debut that takes a long, hard, and funny look at life in the U.S. for Latina women...an upscale telenovela with well-drawn, charmingly flawed characters from an author who explodes some myths."
- Kirkus Reviews

"Marked by fast-paced dialogue and a pop-culture sensibility, this engaging novel, each section of which is written from a different woman's perspective, carries an unmistakable message."
- Book

"The writing is strong, fluid, and sometimes laugh-out loud funny."
- Pioneer Press

"Valdes-Rodriguez' compelling characters are enhanced by their racial identities but not at all inaccesible to the non-Hispanic...an enjoyable read."
- San Antonio Express-News

"Valdes-Rodriguez' novel delivers on the promise of its sexy title (with a) diverse group of women that defies stereotypes. The book addresses serious questions-prejudice, the difficulty of winning respect from Latino men-but balances them with enough romances...to satisfy any chick lit fan. This is a fun, irresistible debut."
- Publishers Weekly
"As a guilty pleasure I would say The Dirty Girls Social Club ranks somewhere between Valrhona Chocolate and Jimmy Choo shoes--I simply could not put it down." --Whitney Ottto, author of How to Make an American Quilt

Format: Paperback
The book is ok, it exemplifies the lives of many latina women in the US and how they interact with each other due to their different scenarios...but let me ask something, who translated this book????? I am from Puerto Rico, one of my closest friends is from Venezuela, my best friend is from Cuba and my boyfriend's best friend is from Colombia....and let me tell you, all the characters talk as if they were from Spain or some Spanish speaking country I apparently have not heard of...Now, I'm not saying that the book is bad, its good in a way that it demonstrates how all these women have held together and been through a lot of ordeals and always stuck together through thick and thin, but the translators did an AWFUL job on this one...It's a book that its easy to read, but does not show how different all these women are culturally...

Format: Paperback
Como se ve en la sinopsis del libro en ingles, por una lectura (muy breve, para no sufrir excesivamente), se confirma el comentario en el sentido de que la autora, en efecto, carece de toda pretension literaria, ya que pasta de escritora no tiene ni habra tenido nunca, solo de ensuciadora de laminitas de celulosa sacrificada para permitirle emitir sus zonceras. Para colmo de males, este libro sale en casi todas las busquedas, como basura indeseada y estorbante. Habria sido tal vez mas interesante de haberlo escrito en castellano la tipa, pero eso, sin duda alguna, habria sido pedirle peras al olmo. No gasten plata en este simulacro literario, indigno de ni un minuto de lectura.

No puedo comentar sobre el espanol, porque no naci asi, pero me reia en cada parte, todas las mujeres parecian reales y interesante. Uno de los libros mas divertidos que he leido. Bueno para disfrutar el verano. No temo que vas a aprender nada nuevo, pero para eso, tienes el New York Times. El actor hacia las papeles muy viva y diferente cada una. Quiero la secuela!

Maravilloso, novela entri ficcion y cargado de situaciones reales, desde la carcajada mas amplia, media sonrisa, angustia, lagrimas, etc.. esta historia te transmite cada una de estas experiencias y vives a la expectativa entr ecapitulo y capitulo.

No lo puedes dejar de leer y una vez que lo terminas.... Porque se acabo?!?!

si es un libro femenino. intensamente rico, creo que todas deberiamos de tener un club y por supuesto... SeR TemeRarias!
