Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Mientras vive con estrecheces en una casa misteriosa de la calle de Aribau, la joven Andrea conoce a un grupo de estudiantes ricos, que representan un contrapunto atractivo para la miseria de su vida cotidiana. Con sus nuevas experiencias, la inocente Andrea va averiguando poco a poco la verdad inquietante de las personas que la rodean. Entre la crisis existencial y el umbral de la madurez, Andrea emergerá de su apasionado viaje interior más sabia, más fuerte y llena de esperanza para el futuro.

Con su profunda penetración sobre la condición humana, la clásica novela de Carmen Laforet, inspirada en su propia vida, merece ocupar su lugar como una de las mejores novelas europeas del siglo XX.

"Profundamente conmovedor y fascinante….una de las grandes clásicas de la literatura europea contemporánea." -- Carlos Ruiz Zafon, autor del bestseller La sombra del viento

"Un trabajo de genio [que recuerda] a Sartre y Camus a la vez más moderno y más vibrante." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Una oscura obra de ficción hermosamente austere…Su inquietante relación con el clima politico y las actitudes sociales de la actualidad es dificíl de ignorar." -- San Fancisco Chronicle

"El espíritu de astuta resistencia que expresa la novela de Laforet…no ha perdido para nada su poder de persuasion." -- The New York Times Book Review
