La charca.. parte de nuestra cultura puertorriquena.

I am about to start the fourth chapter so my rating isn't about the story but the editing. There are way too many typos throughout this edition of the novel, which are frustrating my enjoyment of this, otherwise, pleasurable read. If this sort of thing doesn't bother you, then go ahead and buy this edition; however, if it does, find another.

I had to buy it for my french class. It's alright but the females in the show are pretty annoying.

I'm not going to sit here and tell you what the book is about. You should read it! It is that good! I will tell you some of its themes. Haves vs Have nots, incest, rape, murder, poverty, love, romance, all throwned into a presssure cooker titled "La charca" to create one of the most touching, poigant stories you will ever read. It has a lot of twist and turns which in the end left me completely blown away.
