I found its narrative to be simple, unpretentious, authentic and thereby moving.
In its tone it is perhaps similar to a journal. Nothing wrong with that, in my opinion.
Personally, I am more interested in reading about human experiences, from a personal point of view - not political manifestos.
Well done, Clara.
Francamente, no entiendo porque tanta gente parece tan desilusionada por este libro.
Yo lo encuentro sencillo, sin pretensiones, autentico y por lo tanto conmovedor.
Si, su tono es semejante al tono de un diario, escrito en circunstacias extraordinarias. Que hay de malo en eso?
A mi me interesa leer experiencias personales, no manifiestos sobre politica.
Bien hecho, Clara.
It is more of a "coping mechanism" account of Clara Rojas while being on the jungle.
Clara Rojas is extremately forgiving and her account does not provide the details of the FARC's that some people seek.
Yet is worthy and it is a great book to read paired with the book "Out of Captivity" written by the three Americans.
I really made an effort to read Mrs Rojas material. But, despite of our common upbringing and language, I just could not make it to the end.
My recommendation to the editors of this book, is to take it back and hire a new set of writers and editors that can reshape this thing. If you are reading this review prior to a purchase, save your money and time DONT get it.

Es un texto sin profundidad que no aporta nada. Insípido como su autora. No vale la pena, pues le falta estilo, tema, vida, feurza que atraiga.Published on May 28, 2012 by lv10
