Such an excellent Spanish translation of the English original, in parts it actually captures the richness of Dickens' prose more effectively than the English. Spanish has the characteristic of using more words to convey an idea than does English, and at times, given the excellent choice of words of the translator, it captures the flavor - humor, pathos, drama - of the writer in a more satisfying way. Dickens' gift as a writer was the ability to paint a wonderful canvas with a crisp combination of adjectives and verbs. He captured the human condition, in settings which drew a poignant contrast between classes, rich and poor; he captured the most primordial of human desires and compulsions, in a setting ripe for such a contrast. The relationships involved, written in a first person dialogue from the perspective of a child, evokes such basic human emotion that makes this book truly peerless and great reading. In notes by the author, he said that he was happy with the humor he injected into the story. Amidst such squalor and misery, the story is truly funny in parts, crafted and couched in such realism that makes the lengthy read truly a delight.
