Editorial Reviews

Review

"Anjanette Delgado explora con gran humor el llamado 'mal de amor'. La píldora del mal amor te hará reír, llorar y reflexionar sobre la realidad humana, los sentimientos, la familia, el misterio de comportamiento del sexo opuesto y la importancia de amarnos a nosotras mismas por sobre todas las cosas". -- Eva Hughes, editora general de Vogue México y Vogue Latinoamérica

"Bajo la superficie divertida y ligera de este libro, hay una muy bienvenida sabiduría emocional". -- Marta Acosta, autora de Happy Hour at Casa Dracula

"Durante años, las mujeres le hemos pedido a la ciencia una píldora contra el mal de amor. Con su mezcla de 'chick lit', con su poco de Jekyll, Hyde y el sabor del Miami latino, la novela debut de Anjanette Delgado hace una contribución fundadora a un género que ahora podemos llamar Ficción Pop Latina". -- Frances Negrón-Muntaner, Ph.D., autora de Boricua Pop y profesora, Universidad de Columbia

Format: Paperback
Me encantó esta novela. Me hizo reír y llorar, y me sentí bien identificada. El personaje principal es una científica que busca crear una cura para el mal amor. Tan pronto comencé a leerlo, empecé a verme reflejada en las páginas. La novela se adentra con humor en la esfera de los sentimientos de nosotras las mujeres, y combina de manera bien divertida elementos de ficción y realidad al basar la trama en descubrimientos científicos acerca de lo que pasa en nuestro cerebro cuando nos enamoramos y sufrimos por amor. Altamente recomendable!

A great mix of humor, sarcasm, irony, heartbreak and romance. A fun read for someone studying Spanish, like myself, although my Kindle Spanish dictionary couldn't translate all the expletives!

A fast and fun read of a modern day marriage, divorce, and of developing a sense of identity after a long term relationship ends. Funny, engaging, and an interesting cultural approach to relationships. Recommend it as a fun read about relationships in a Latino culture.
