    Strange, magical, quirky delightful, there are many different ways to describe this novel. A parable, a fable, an allegorical treatise on loss and aging, among other definitions on how this book can be read. Harold and Mary Rose Grape, the names alone drew me into their story. A ship i...

    A truly magical book that resonates with one?s humanity and strikes a chord with what unites the peoples of the world rather than what divides us. Never more than a story about a simple couple growing old together it becomes a takes on a life of its own through fantasy and parable. ...

    Creo que la gente que me recomendó este libro probablemente era fan de El alquimista y otros manuales de autoayuda barata, porque no hay por donde cogerlo. Más de la mitad del libro me recuerda a una película con la que tengo trauma desde los 6 años, Cuando el viento sopla, la pel...

    La historia tiene diferentes plot twist, que en todo momento me sorprendieron; cuando empezaba a pensar de qué forma estaba preparándose el final ¡zas! algo inesperado ocurre y ya todo cambia. Es algo que me encanta, porque no permite que me aburra o que sea predecible la historia. ...

    This book was suggested to me and I was quick to start reading. I'm always looking for a great new book written in Spanish, and on reading the summary I was immediately interested. The way the book is written keeps you interested the entire time, I can't remember a point where I wasn't...

    I was completely enthralled with this story. Once I had started, I couldn't stop reading! I was so in love with Mr. and Mrs. Grapes that I didn't want the story to end, even though my breath caught numerous times in anticipation as to what would happen next. I wholeheartedly recommend ...

    Debo reconocer que cuando comencé a leerlo lo hice sin haberme leído la sinopsis, y también tengo que reconocer que no me esperaba en absoluto una historia como la que contiene el libro. Los personajes son fáciles de comprender y no hay ninguno que guste menos, aunque sí me hub...

    · 4,5 · Lo que me hace quitarle ese medio punto es el hecho de que hubo momentos en los que la lectura se me hizo algo pesada, alguna escena demasiado lenta o, tal vez, alargada de más. Dicho esto, todo lo que me quede por decir de esta novela es más que bueno. Es mejor que bueno...

    Lo primero y más destacable que se me ocurre decir es que me parece un libro bastante bien escrito, llevado y concluido. El resultado no es perfecto ni una obra maestra pero logra con creces sobrepasar lo que uno espera de la primera obra de un escritor joven. Me gusta el estilo del ...

    Miguel Reina crafted an exciting, action-packed tale that guided me on a remarkable adventure. It was a roller coaster ride from summits of jubilation to the deepest, darkest pits of despair and everything else thrown in between. Special recognition is given to Catherine Nelson for the...

    Fantastic cover. And this book is one that proves the old saying "don't judge the book by its cover" wrong. So wrong. Because the story is simply magical and captivating and will open a whole new perspective on the world after reading it. And the best part is that Mr Reina ha...

    This book came to me by chance. I never heart about the author but when I saw that Kristin Hannah did a great endorsement for it I didnt hesitate and I read it. This is an amazing story, with some similarities to Life of Pi but much more touching. I totally recommend it This book ca...

    Oh my god! This is one of the most beautiful novels I ever read in my entire life. Im a great fan of Kristin Hannahs books and when I saw her quote for Lights on the Sea it picked my curiosity. Although the type of book is very different from Hannas writing style, I totally agree with ...

    This book will be BIG as other classics like Life of Pi or The Alchemist, actually some of my favorite books. This is a story about redemption, love, grief, and above all, a big light that makes us dream. I totally recommend it if you like books that entertain but also make you think. ...

    I love to find books that really surprise me. Lights on the Sea is a fable about the power of redemption and the fulfillment of dreams that has elements from Life of Pi or Aleph. The 2 main characters, Harold and Mary Rose Grapes are so well defined that sometimes I thought they were r...
