Say it like you mean it

How is this?  I was pretty excited when I saw it was out, and moreso after I read the Amazon reviews.

I’ve only read about five pages or so but it’s going well. I can tell I’m going to like it. Reading in Spanish though, that slows things down a bit because I’m not used to it and I’m not as fluent as I should be.

Anyway, even though I’ve only read a bit of it, I’d recommend it to you. If for no other reason than to read about a 90 year old man getting it on with a 20 year old. Isn’t that every man’s fantasy?

Though I’m guessing that’s not what I’m supposed to take away from the book. :D

after watching the movie, and loving it, i bought “como agua para chocolate” in spanish in the hopes of improving my vocabulary and grammar. i got through like a chapter. it was very hard for me. then i decided i needed the book in english to help me with the tough parts. so i bought that. of course, i never went back to the spanish version, and didn’t read it in english either because i felt too guilty.

i’ve always planned on trying the spanish version again. maybe i’ll try that again soon. i’m definitely inspired by your story and apparent improvement in spanish. i’d rather read the book then watch the news in spanish as my teacher always suggested. i just hate the news.

I really liked this book. Then again, I’m a huge Marquez fan so I may be conditioned to just love all of his books. By the way, I love that quote from the movie.

So I finally got this (for Christmas) and read it.  I liked it, but it wasn’t my favorite Marquez book.  Seemed a little incomplete.
