Very touching and interesting book!

What made the experience of listening to Cruzando la Frontera (Texto Completo) the most enjoyable?

Incredibly vivid interpretation by Dario Tangleson and totally catching narration by Ruben Martinez.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked the narrator the most for his style and the way of observing the world.

What does Dario Tangleson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings so much life to each character and to the entire book.

If you could rename Cruzando la Frontera (Texto Completo), what would you call it?

I like the title as it is.

Any additional comments?

This book reminds me the best of Ryszard Kapuscinski stories.
