Passport to Magonia: On UFOs, Folklore, and Parallel Worlds
Passport to Magonia: On UFOs, Folklore, and Parallel Worlds
by Jacques Vallee
Edition: Paperback
40 used & new from $29.98

5.0 out of 5 stars A new edition, please!!!!, May 21, 2013
I've been looking for this title all over Internet, since I read Revelations by the same author, but the prices are ridiculous due to speculators. It's impossible to buy it. Many people I know are also looking for this book. Is there going to be a new paper edition? I don't like the digital books. I can't highlight them as well and comfortable as the paper versions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings, December 6, 2009
This review is from: I Am the Messenger (Paperback)
It is a well-written book, regarding its description and language. But some parts of the plot are not credible enough and the ending appears out of the blue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!, May 27, 2009
This review is from: Intactvs (MP3 Music)
Mike Porcel's fans have been wating for this long-due CD for years. A must for everyone who loves the music of this Cuban composer and singer, who mixes all kind of musical genres in his songs. His lyrics are also out of this world!!! They are in Spanish, but if you need a translation you can have it in his Website.

Los fans de Mike Porcel hemos estado esperando este CD desde hace mucho tiempo. Este es un álbum obligatorio para quienes aman la música de este compositor y cantante cubano, que mezcla toda clase de géneros musicales en sus canciones. Sus letras también son extraordinarias.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the real thing, May 22, 2009
Being a lover of pre-Columbian cultures, I was very disappointed when I watched Apocalipto which, even though it had some beautiful scenes, photographically speaking, it lacked real substance. That's why I was so pleased when I found this movie, made many years before the Gibson's film. I don't know how it was possible I had never heard from it. I immediately felt connected with what I was seeing. It was an almost unexplained sense that this was right. Be aware that you will not find here either the tempo nor the simplicity you usually find in Hollywood movies. This is an art film, depicting the clash between two different ways of looking life and religion. I loved the Mexican characters. The women portrait a natural and non-spoiled beauty that is impossible to find in any Hollywood movie nowadays. And the protagonist, Topiltzin, seems like a character out of an Aztec code. I wish there were more movies about the Spanish conquest like this.


Soy Leyenda / I Am Legend (Pegasus (Booket)) (Spanish Edition)
Soy Leyenda / I Am Legend (Pegasus (Booket)) (Spanish Edition)
by Richard Matheson
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Por los siglos de los siglos, December 18, 2006
Este es uno de esos clásicos que no pasan de moda. La trama comienza y se desarrolla con una fuerza y concisión que no decaen. Es una historia de vampiros... al revés. Y no digo nada más para no estropear la trama. La recomiendo encarecidamente. Este es un libro que no sólo no parece haber envejecido, sino que sigue superando a cualquiera de los llamados "clásicos" contemporáneos.

2.0 out of 5 stars No es la misma, December 18, 2006
Soy un antiguo admirador de LeGuin. Me he leído unas 7 novelas suyas, pero esta es la única que no me ha gustado nada. Es muy complicada por gusto. El mundo de Terramar, que hizo famoso en su trilogía, vuelve a aparecer aquí, pero hay una profusión de personajes que no acaban de definirse. Muchos de ellos provienen de libros anteriores, pero estos y otros nuevos aparecen desdibujados y confusos. Hay demasiados nombres de lugares y reinos que no parecen importantes para la historia, pero que se mencionan todo el tiempo complicando aún más la trama. La historia carece de la fuerza, intriga y originalidad de sus libros anteriores. Es una pena.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it, December 8, 2006
This book is cheap, so it's the content. Don't waste your time or money.
