A very useful bilingual book to gain an introduction to a wide range of Spanish and Latin American literature, including a couple of classics.
However, the language level may be a little higher than what most people understand as 'intermediate'.

Lovely selection of stories with plenty of useful notes where necessary, plus a glossary at the back, and questions in spanish, for each story, to test comprehension. I am teaching myself spanish, am at not-high-grade GCSE level, but I found it useful, engaging and motivating.

Really great for anyone who wishes to practice their Spanish reading without the drag of having to look-up words as you go along. Whilst this was the primary reason the stories themselves were quite gripping and I found myself reading on in English because I wanted to know what was going to happen in the storyline more quickly than my ability to read in Spanish!

I rented this book from a library before reading it, and was pleasantly surprised at the amount of stories in the book - there's a good selection to read from, including old literature which is interesting to read.
Whilst the direct translation can be confusing, and the print quite small (especially as I have troubles reading small print), it's a good read for any student going from AS to A2, and even onto uni to do Spanish/Hispanic.

Just be aware the book is a 1997 publication and so can look a tad outdated, but it's good to help see words in context.

I purchased this book as i have been learning Spanish for a year. The aim was to follow a story with the English on the opposite page to help me to understand the sentence construction.The stories were myths and they contained a lot of words that you would not come across in everyday Spanish,and so it did not help me very much. The idea seemed good,but i think i need to purchase a less complicated book that would be perhaps for younger children although i am an adult. Would only recomend if you have a very good knowledge of Spanish.

These stories are good and interesting but are harder, partly because they are more literary, written by respected writers. There are a few which are slightly easier. Again I like the biographical page on each writer. I am sure they will give me a good indicator of which Spanish writer will appeal to me when I decide to try a classic author. Like the poetry books, it is one to keep as improving ability in the language invites the reader to revisit the stories.

I have enjoyed this book alot. The stories themselves were rather enjoyable. The Spanish texts are quite challenging but the English transcription helps you along. I would recommend this to Spanish learners that are intermediate onwards. I don't think it is really suitable for beginners.

I have not progressed very far with this yet but so far so good. It is very much at the level I presently require and, having the English translation, albeit sometimes very idiomatic English, allows one to progress when originally stuck. A good concept.
