About the Author

Galdós era el décimo hijo de un coronel del ejército, Sebastián Pérez, y de Dolores Galdós. En 1852 ingresó en el Colegio de San Agustín, que aplicaba una pedagogía muy avanzada para la época. Obtuvo el título de bachiller en Artes en 1862, en el Instituto de La Laguna, y empezó a publicar poemas satíricos, ensayos y cuentos en la prensa local. También se destacó por su interés por el dibujo y la pintura. En septiembre de 1862 Galdós se fue a vivir a Madrid y se matriculó en la universidad. Allí conoció al fundador de la Institución Libre de Enseñanza, Francisco Giner de los Ríos, que le alentó a escribir y le hizo conocer el krausismo. Por entonces frecuentó los teatros de Madrid y organizó la «Tertulia Canaria». En 1865 empezó a escribir en los periódicos La Nación y El Debate, y en la Revista del Movimiento Intelectual de Europa. Hacia 1867 hizo su primer viaje al extranjero, como corresponsal en París en la Exposición Universal. Galdós publicó en 1870 La Fontana de Oro, su primera novela. La Sombra fue publicada en noviembre de 1870 por entregas en La Revista de España. Y en 1873 comenzó a publicar la que se puede considerar su obra maestra, los Episodios nacionales, donde refleja la vida íntima de los españoles del siglo XIX y los acontecimientos de la historia nacional que marcaron el destino de España. La obra tiene cuarenta y seis episodios en cinco series de diez novelas cada una, salvo la última, inconclusa. Empiezan con la batalla de Trafalgar y terminan con la Restauración borbónica en España. Tuvo una hija natural en 1891 de una madre que se suicidó, Lorenza Cobián. Y se relacionó con la actriz Concha Morell y la novelista Emilia Pardo Bazán. Galdós murió en su casa de la calle Hilarión Eslava de Madrid el 4 de enero de 1920. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I read this book in high school and I wanted to read it again.
Janet Morales
The language is fairly straightforward, with a vocabulary that is only occasionally at variance with that normally found among educated Spanish speakers of today.
bukhtan
I will strongly recommed to all high school and university students.

Leí Marianela hace años cuando era adolescente y caí en la tentación de leer la versión electrónica. El texto de la edición para Kindle es el mismo que tuve en mis manos (en papel) hace unos 25 años. Como muchos sabrán la novela narra la historia de amistad y amor entre dos jóvenes con realidades sociales y físicas muy distintas. A pesar de que la obra está escrita en español peninsular (el léxico a veces se hace desafiante) y se encuentra ambientada en la España de finales del siglo XIX, la maestría del autor guía al lector a través de lugares y personajes que se hacen creíbles y comprensibles para los "habitantes" del siglo XXI.
La novela alcanza especial dinamismo y emoción desde la mitad de la narración hacia adelante y se hace muy emotiva y cautivante al final. Especialmente conmovedoras son las páginas finales que contribuyen a construir un mayor realismo con respecto a los acontecimientos y dan la sensación de que no se ha leído una novela, sino más bien la biografía de un alma desdichada.
Es una novela 100% recomendable, en especial para adolescentes, pues la historia que relata no envejece a pesar de tener ya más de un siglo.

Format: Paperback
This novel, I think one of the shorter ones in Galdos's work, would be a good choice for beginning/intermediate foreign readers of Spanish. The language is fairly straightforward, with a vocabulary that is only occasionally at variance with that normally found among educated Spanish speakers of today. There are occasional deviations from modern norms in syntax; most consistently Galdos' placement of the le/lo/la unstressed article after, rather than before a conjugated verb. His style is admirably direct, only rarely exhibiting sentences which would be hard to parse for a foreigner to parse.

As for plot and matter, this is a story of a sensitive, intelligent young girl who suffers from not being beautiful enough, or socially well-placed enough, to get the attention that that she wants and which any normal reader would like to see her get. Sentimental, but life excites our sentiment, if we aren't made of stone. As for setting, it instructively describes a mining landscape in late 19th C Spain, as industry profitably invades that sparsely populated and beautiful country. A love of nature is mixed here with an appreciation of science and technology that was characteristic of educated and thoughtful people in the First World of that time. The reader sees as well examples of the pull to the city that was proceeding full bore in Spain as well as the UK and elsewhere in Euro-America. "The doctor said that people who stay here become stones. I don't want to become a stone", says a young acquaintance of the heroine.

The author resembles England's Dickens in some ways, such as his direct interest in the real world and his plain sympathy for plain people. Readers will not need a sophisticated intellect and long acquaintance with sophisticated literature to appreciate this book, as they might, say, to appreciate the late G Garcia-Marquez, Borges or other Spanish-language authors of the relatively modern era which they might otherwise be assigned in school.

I remember back in the late 80's, we had to read this book for Spanish class. For some reason, I didn't read it; maybe it was because I wasn't into books. Anyways, I didn't read it when I had to in 8th grade, but now that I'm an adult and an avid book reader, last week I remembered about it, and decided to downloaded to my Kindle Fire. I'm half way in the book, and I love it. There's some funny stuff written into it, and I just love it. My question is now, why I didn't read this sooner? This is classic Spanish Literature. Very well written!

We obtained this book because my son had to read it for school, but I personally do not like the book. It is hard to read since it has too many words that are not used now a days. It is like reading Shakespeare or worse.

I expected a more interesting novel. It shows very good spanish text and a very large knowledge of the language and thus you can say Perez Galdos is a master of our language, but the argument itself is rather simple
