Apr 27, 2009"Re: Fantástica..." Pronto. Más larga – toda en español. ¡Gracias!
Aug 21, 2008"High Profile Madness" I can't comment in depth really, as the preview was quite short, not even including any of the main body of text. However, I want to congratulate the author on the excellent work due to considerable thought and imagination, on the introduction. ( Even the self-publicity is impressive ). This is captivating in itself, and quite rightly has the reader wishing there was more to read. It is obvious that what follows must be a highly original story, from a highly fertile, and bi-lingual mind, though no doubt not of our comfy armchair view of life, it seems as if there is a veritable quantum leap as far as our reality is concerned. I am so intrigued I will probably end up getting the download. As far as Ian's guess on the inspiration for the title, I'll differ and say its to do with 'all is not what it seems'. Spanish strawberries look the biz, but, as they are mostly forced for continual all-year availability to tourists in hotels, they do not taste... More > anywhere near the biz. I suspect this will give the author a laugh as he's shaking his head, but as the veritable Barry Norman says 'and why not? John Haines< Less
Nov 27, 2007"I love it!" ‘Strawberries’ This is a tale of mystery and tricks that can play on the mind. It involves a challenge for the reader which is both multi dimensional and multi-faceted like a finely cut gem. It is a love story at high speed (perhaps a little like speed dating) and is conducted high above the clouds they only have a few hours to get to know each other. Well written, a brilliant and high class romance. A ‘must have’ for all those romance junkies out there. Regards Anne Rogers
Jul 1, 2006"Distintos idiomas" He tenido que leer un comentario escrito aqui en italiano por otro de los lectores para darme cuenta de que no hay obligacion de escribir en ingles a la hora de comentar "strawberries". Sobre todo a la hora de comentar "strawberries"! Vivimos en un mundo en el que, a pesar de que el ingles nos sea util a la hora de comunicarnos los unos con los otros, afortunadamente existen multitud de idiomas, todos ellos preciosos. Formalmente, "strawberries" es complicado precisamente porque utiliza varios de los muchos idiomas que existen, y precisamente por eso su riqueza formal es importante. Pero es que ademas, el relato es de los que enganchan, y esta muy bien narrado, lo cual hace que el libro sea, "all and all" sencillamente REDONDO, como el mundo que el autor hace recorrer al personaje de este relato y en el que vivimos todos nosotros. Altamente recomendado. 見逃せない!!! O, mejor dicho: 読み逃せない!!!
Mar 24, 2006"Fantástica..." Considero que escribir un libro siempre resulta tarea complicada, pero si a esto le añadimos que el libro está tratado en diversas lenguas, la complicación se duplica, tanto a la hora de escribirlo como de leerlo. A pesar de todo, mi más sincera felicitación a su autor por lograr una novela, "bien hecha". Para cuándo la próxima?...
