    1. DESPERATELY SEEKING JUANA Signor console, signor Gamboa, caro Santiago, questo libro sembra quasi un novello Uomo senza qualit , pur non assomigliando per nulla a quell insuperabile capolavoro Rosanna Arquette e Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan di Susan Seidelman, 1985.Eppure qui c una voce, attribuita a un fantomatico inter nauta, che mi ha evocato Moosbrugger E anche qui i protagonisti sono un fratello e una sorella, Manuel e Juana, novelli Ulrich e Agathe La loro storia, che prima di tutt [...]

    8. This was a craaaazy book, the reader certainly does not expect everything that happens It seemed a bit slow at the beginning yet interesting however, when Manuel finds a clue about Juana things spin around like crazy It s a great story, albeit I ll have to say that calling it a love story was a bit incestuous was I the only one thinking that at the end I did have two issues with the book 1st, I did not understand Inter neta s chapters I thought there s be a point where the reader would understan [...]

    19. This author is very entertaining and easy to read The only thing I don t like of him and all the books I have read from him is his obsession with detailed descriptions of sexual encounters that do not give anything to the enhance the story Sometimes it sounds like he is obsessed, and sometimes it sounds like he wants to sell books no matter what and he doesn t believe in his great talent, so he uses the explicit sex scenes as a bait for some younger readers I can be certain that this author has [...]
