    Uff cuanta intriga hasta el final....

    Reseña completa en mi blog: La cueva de Danny.

    No tengo palabras para describir lo mucho que ame y me gusto este libro. Me hizo mantenerme enganchando todo el libro queriendo saber el gran secreto y lo que llevó a todos a esto de acabar viviendo en la oscuridad.

    No puedo creer las cosas tan erróneas que los padres hicieron desde el comienzo a su familia, desde los abuelos hasta los papás. Y la forma de culpar a la hermana por todo.

    Estoy sin palabras, simplemente, ¡Me encanto!

    Se los recomiendo tot

    I was going to give this book three stars because the author's writing was good enough to keep me reading until the end, but the more I thought about the story, the more I leaned towards reducing the stars. The reason? About halfway through the book, you begin to get the back story. At that point a very well written story that I thought was heading towards a touching and inspirational end as the editorial review would have you think, turned into something different. Once I knew the motivation of ...more

    4 de 5 estrellas ⭐⭐⭐⭐(Me ha encantado)

    Es un libro que me ha producido muchísimas sensaciones y sentimientos diferentes desde asco hasta ternura.....

    No tenía ni idea de porque esta familia vive bajo tierra y el desarrollo de su vida en el sótano produce nauseas, claustrofobia, angustia y ganas de dejarlo.

    La razón, la historia, el porqué y todo lo demás te descubre un novelón y yo que no soy de llorar, he estado con la lagrima asomando en el ojo todo el rato .

    Lo recomiendo al 100%. Sin dudarlo

    3.5 stars.

    This was an intriguing story, about a family living in the basement of their former home. After reading the first two chapters, it was evident that this was going to be a dark tale, that took on an even darker tone when it changed to a third person perspective: which serves as the back-story of why they ended up living underground for so many years. It also explains how they were able to survive down there without ever leaving.

    The first person narrative is told by the (boy) - they don'

    A mask. Think of what it can cover, and what it cannot hide. Some very creepy family dynamics take front and center stage for this unsettling novel. The characters are never named, and it worked well here.

    Hear the sound of the mother's nose oddly whistling as she stirs the carrot soup. Smell the talcum powder emanating from the grandmother. Consider the Cricket Man, a face that is inside out, and a little boy who loves his book about insects. A seventh plate of food is always set at mealtime for

  • Franco  Santos

    Un libro hermoso. Una historia sobre la familia, de cuánto es capaz por proteger a un ser querido. También trata de cómo la exclusión puede provocar en alguien reacciones impensables; que te harían cuestionar quién sos vos realmente. Es una trama triste y emocionante, de buscar superar la barrera a lo desconocido aunque eso amerite tomar riesgos, porque sin riesgos no hay cambios. Está lleno de mentiras y de misterios que se van a ir develando a lo largo de la historia. Un libro muy bien escrito ...more
