review 1: What goes through your head when the person you love leaves you? What do you do with your life when you have to start it all over again? Do you make it up? Nata’s world fills with unanswered questions when Beto leaves her. But time doesn’t stop, and the stories that Nata begins to tell herself about her own life lead her to a place where everything becomes possible again.Torres deliverers a novella filled with a character dealing with a break up on her own terms. Nata renegotiates life after her boyfriend terminates their suffering relationship. Devastated Nata imagines her way through her pain which is quite humorous and heartbreaking. It is a memorable journey as we suffer the ups and down of a breakup. Nata comes a long way as she regains her footing as an ex, a sin... moregle girl, dating again, and finds herself interested in a potential boyfriend. Getting through the heartbreak was affecting and sobering. No doubt readers will find bits of themselves peppered throughout the narrative, easily relating to Nata or her struggle.A different spin on a breakup and coping with the end of a relationship. I enjoyed Torres and her offbeat approach. Managing to combine humor, the torture and the reality of finding yourself as a single rather than a couple was well done. Torres adds bits of magical realism, fantasy and good old imagination to ease a young woman’s pain.Nata was charming and creative, watching her reemerge was a joy. I was entertained and impressed with Torres. Clever and bold, looking forward to her next effort.
review 2: Un vacilón de libro. A cuantos de nosotros nos ha dejado una pareja de la cual estábamos segurísimos de su eterno amor? Nata es la típica mujer conflictiva internamente, creo que todas nos sentimos identificadas con sus análisis mentales y su vida paralela, imaginaria, que usa para subsistir a la depresión del engaño y la soledad. Novela fresca, actual y divertida, se pasa un buen rato con ella. Recomendable.Pág. 256 less

Es que le faltaban páginas o es que, ¡chulumpún! te deja en el aire el bendito libro?
Entretenido, aunque no merecedor de un premio nacional!
Cercano, sencillo, fácil de leer y muy entretenido
