These tales would best suit either a native speaker of Spanish, or an advanced learner. Obviously as this is a Kindle book, you can use the free Real Academía Española dictionary to help you if you need any definitions. In literary terms, this is a great feast which will keep you entertained and satisfied for many hours. Three stories in this book, Carmiña, Un saxo en la niebla and La lengua de las mariposas together formed the beautiful and famous film, La Lengua de las Mariposas, aka Butterfly's Tongue. These three stories, set in the times of the Spanish Civil War, are both haunting and insightful, and are among the most beautiful stories which I have ever read.
