Esta lectura fue asignada en el Club de Lectura en espanol al cual pertenezco. La historia de dos hermanas que a mi entender se quieren y se odian a la vez es de lo mas interesante. Cada una ve el mundo desde una perspectiva diferente aunque tienen las mismas raices cubanas. Me gusto la descripcion de lo que fueron tiempos gloriosos en Cuba antes de la Revolucion sin embargo hay muchos errores ortograficos en el libro, es por esta razon que le di 4 estrellas.

This book is a wonderful story of two sisters that have lived separated for most of their lives. A view into life in Cuba and life in the US as an immigrant. The constant strugle between ones personal beliefs and those instilled by the Cuban government to it's people. It is most importantly about "familia" and the story of the Agueros (3 generations of them). I highly recommend this book (also available in English). Good use of imagery. I had forgotten I purchased it and just recently found it in my bookcase and what a surprise it turned out to be.

Las novelas más inspiradoras sobre la mujer latinoamericana son "La casa de los espíritus" de Isabel Allende, "El amor en los tiempos del cólera" de García Márquez, "Las hermanas Agüero" de Christina García, "La casa en Mango Street" de Sandra Cisneros y la que acaba de aparecer sobre la mujer de la inmigración, "El amor de Carmela me va a matar" de Eduardo González Viaña.

The book seems to be good, but the translation is poor, and it is full of spelling errors - I only wished I had read the book in original language to really enjoy it! Between the translation and the spelling errors, it is very hard to read!! It is not a relaxing exercise any more. Pity!
