I lived in Spain for a short time and made a real effort to learn the language. I now need books to help me maintain some standard in Spanish. This book is about the Sunday magazine of El Pais and covers various articles that have appeared in the magazine over the past 35 years. As I always made a point of using newspapers to keep up-to-date with the language when I lived there I find the journalistic style in this book comparatively easy to read and understand. It is a very useful book for someone like me who has some Spanish and wants to keep up some sort of standard. Not for the beginners but intermediates should find it useful, and historically it is very interesting.
I love Spain. I am desperately trying to improve my Spanish and, if I were not so mean, I would subscribe to the Kindle Daily El Pais. But this is FREE and is a brilliant snapshot of what has concerned Spanish people over the past 35 years. I find it brilliant practice - and of course the Kindle Collins Concise Dictionary finds every word for me fast. Wow! One day I may be fluent!
I have the Kindle edition of the book. It deals with issues that were topical at different periods in the recent past. The language is not too complicated and the stories, which are written in the journalistic style of a quality newspaper, are interesting in their own right. I purchased a Kindle Spanish/English dictionary that I have found most useful to use in conjunction with 35 historias. The 3G version that I have allows me to tap a word that I am unfamiliar with and I get an immediate translation. This helps enormously as there the reader is not drawn away from the story itself and interest is thereby maintained. I'm glad I bought it.
