Summary

Esmeralda Santiago's memoir, Cuando Era Puertorriqueña, continues with El Amante Turco. At 21, Esmeralda moves from Brooklyn to begin a life with Ulvi, a domineering, condescending Turkish immigrant several years older. After years of abuse, Esmeralda finds the strength to earn a degree from Harvard and leave Ulvi, ultimately proving, "There will always be another train."

Terribly Disappointing

I loved the first book. The second book was okay. The El Amante Turco is bad. The first half is a rehash of the past two books. The new material is boring, like an uninteresting soap opera. I made it to chapter six (there are a total of nine). I am giving up on it. I am no longer interested in what happens. Sorry, but at least I enjoyed her first book.

Me gusto el libro pero me dejo deseando

El cuento es intrigante y se desarrolla de una manera que uno puede predecir. Es bien lento en el desarrollo de los caracteres. Me gusto pero no me encanto.

Emeralda Santiago me tenga atrapada

Dios Bendiga Esta Autora. Me has Dado fuerza con su libro. Pase muchas de las experiencias que ella tuvo, y estaba hasta Escondida tratando de terminar el libro. y escuche el fin 2 veces. Su voz es perfecta tanto en Ingles como Español.
Me encanto que subiste a tu Cima Esmeralda. Nos dad orgullo, y me das esperanza para mis niños, porque "el que quieres puede".
Gracias tambien por ayudarme a record palabras en español que se me escaparon estado casada con un Americano/Alemàn.

Intrigante

es una historia que te atrapa.
muy bien narrada, la actuación y expresiones le da mucha vida al relato.
