El Gaspar


“A book that goes beyond entertainment, it has what is necessary to lead us to a fluent reading. It also leads us to learn about the customs and historical facts of real people, from a place unknown to many of us, and to understand how the 'chains' are repeated without us being aware of them and the need for public support policies. Also a book that makes us 'travel' with the wealth of descriptions. I really liked when he presents the turning points that capture the reader's curiosity to know how that exact moment (which would not even seem so crucial) would mark a change in the course of the characters' lives, I think these turning points happen a lot with us (…) It is a novel, but it is full of reality”.- A. F.


“For me it is a perfect book. It includes themes that summon me and that I consider fundamental in a story: love (in any of its forms), critical analysis of what is established (...) The story is completely coherent, captivating, sensitive and harshly realistic”.-M. B.


“A very fresh reading, the text is well written (...) what I like the most is the beauty of its simplicity, in the midst of the description of a natural landscape as beautiful and intense as the emotions that El Gaspar could never express. The drama of misunderstanding and the inability to resolve, despite love. All in all, a highly recommended read."-C.S.


“(…) I learned a lot, and even more, it made me laugh a lot. There are several people, important to me, that I would like to give a book like this; for their jobs, for what they do, for what they did, or in some way, for my own story.”-L. C.


"I read the novel, recommended for analysis and reflection on the impact of gender violence, which goes so unnoticed and is so explicitly described in the book (...) a work with a vision committed to gender inequalities."-L. M.
