La Loca de la casa is Rosa Montero's most intimate novel about herself. We learn about the personal fantasies and details about the author through the many episodes that she experienced while writing many of her works. The book is an autobiography and partial biography about other authors that Rosa Montero talks about continuously throughout the book. Each chapter details a specific episode in Rosa's life that in some circumstances led her to put pen to paper. The episodes are told with enthusiasm and incomparable spirit as the author looks back at her life and her life as a writer. Once you begin to read the book you will quickly identify that La loca de la casa is Rosa Montero herself. I enjoyed the book immensely. It is a great journey through the soul of a terrific author.

I've never read an autobiography of someone I knew nothing about. I picked the book because of the strange little girl on the cover. It's an outstanding piece of workmanship. I have never read anything like it. I realized there was something unique going on when I read her description of an incident and then, pages on into the text, there it was again. The same incident described as if for the 1st time. And then, further on in the book, the same incident again. I was completely pulled in by this book. Not only were the incidents interesting but the words. She's a master at description.

For someone that has never written a book it is difficult to imagine how the creative process is made. Rosa in this book guides the reader to a trip were we can see what's going on inside a writer's brain, the ghosts, the fears, the vanity, the anger, the models of inspiration. A fundamental book for every booklover.

Libro excelente... y divertido.. Lo aconsejo especialmente a quienes estan en el proceso creativo de un libro, tesis...o algun otro escrito.. Tambien a aquellos que tienen que convivir con una persona que esta en ese proceso... Rosa Montero nos cuenta como vive ella su experiencia de escribir, como busca inspiracion y tambien nos relata historias de otros escritores muy divertidas e interesantes. Otra cosa que me llamo la atencion fue el estilo de este libro: van a descubrir una an?cdota supuestamente personal contadas varias veces, y cada vez de una manera distinta... No es un error, pero tampoco les voy a decir.... Les recomiendo que lean el libro para descubrir de que se trata ese ejercicio literario, biografico... o como lo quieran llamar. Disfruten este hallazgo!! Omar
Pd: perdon por la falta de acentos...

Es un libro bien escrito, agil y con buenas imagenes y reflexiones. La historia de M., que se repite tres veces diferente, no me parece tan genial para ser el centro del libro ni ejemplo de las jugarretas de la memoria. Si bien demuestra de alguna manera su punto, creo que es una historia mediocre y cholula, tal vez elegida por ser un puntito interesante para los que les gustan las historias de famosos.
Tiene un comienzo espectacular que promete ser un librazo y para mi, se le cae por el camino.
