Booka Audiobooks brings you, for the first time in English and accompanied by an original music score, The Life of Lazarillo of Tormes. This is the book that founded a literary genre during the Spanish Golden Age: the picaresque novel. Lazarillo is a boy of humble origins. After his stepfather is accused of thievery, his mother asks a wily blind beggar to take Lazarillo on as his apprentice. Little Lazaro develops his cunning while serving the blind beggar and several other masters.
I enjoyed listening to this piece of Spanish literature. Being a picaresque novella, Its pretty light. Plus, the narrator is of excellence.

If you like Voltare and Swift you'll love this. The writing style is very similar to Candide.
