The writing mesmerized me in the beginning but left me rather underwhelmed as it all drew to a close. My first issue: I was promised a story about a break-up and a child that needs to be found. Espinosa managed to stuff that content into a few dozen pages and filled the o actual rating: 3. Espinosa managed to stuff that content into a few dozen pages and filled the others with something that I neither expected nor needed.
Si tú me dices ven lo dejo todo pero dime ven by Albert Espinosa
It was a totally different book then what I thought it was. Not a bad book, that is. I just waited for the fun to start and it didn't until there were basically no pages left. My second issue: The whole plot was rather inexistent. The story consists of flashbacks and "I promised to give you what you bought this book for, just hold on for a bit longer". If you need to say that, you know something's wrong.
I mean - apologizing to the reader about what you're writing, really? My third issue: The protagonist gets more and more teary, the story more and more unrealistic and the actions more and more implausible towards the end. And here are the reasons why I give this book 3.
Si tú me dices ven lo dejo todo... pero dime ven
It was peaceful, a bit unexpected, the magic was back. Another thing I appreciated were the titles Espinosa gave to the chapters. You could already try and guess in which sense they would appear and he almost always chose strong sentences. Espinosa thought about his characters and he was creative. It doesn't mean I bought the cast and setting as a whole but I appreciated the approach. Compared to german or austrian books, this was so much more fun to read At least Austrians seem incapable of writing happy books.
Interesting and reflective yes, happy no. I conclude that "Si tu me dices ven lo dejo todo If Espinosa had actually been honest about the content and deleted at least a few dozen of the innumerable dots he used, I would not have been disappointed after reading - I probably would have been all like "yaaay, read this book, it's so magical in a spanish way!! Next time, Espinosa. Dec 30, Carla rated it liked it. This book has been quiet good. I have read it in 3 days and I have to say that the way the author tells the story is totally new to me. I liked the story a lot because of the deep emotions explained and because of the way things are described.
The main character, who also tells the story, goes through a struggle for growing as a person accepting himself the way he is with help of others who teach him to love himself and to love his life.
I liked this book a lot and my main impression i This book has been quiet good. I liked this book a lot and my main impression is positive though it was slow at some points of the book that's why I can only ive it 3 stars out of 5.

It ends way too fast. It should be longer because the story told in the right way with the right words could be so much better But ah well!
Mar 20, Natalia rated it did not like it. I bought the book because the excellent title. After reading I was quite disappointed since in fact the title is not really necessarily related to the topic of the book itself.

Dani wants to explain to the reader why his girlfriend is leaving him, how his life has come to this point, and in order to do this he takes us back through his memories of some of the most significant events and people as he was growing up - people and places that shaped him to become the person he is today. He sets off on his journey to the Isle of Capri to search for the missing child, along the way remembering a similar journey he took as a child, but in much different circumstances. The search for this missing child is really a search for Dani's own self, his missing childhood.
Translated from Spanish, this quick read is beautifully written and dotted with some though provoking lines and ideas.
Hi! dear friends!!
Full of symbolism and hope, a gentle voyage of discovery. It has the potential to be so much more but at the same time it was trying too hard to portray touching messages on every other page. I liked Mr Martin and George, it would have been nice to get more from them. It actually felt as though Espinosa realised he had a word limit and had to cut so much out and entirely rush the ending without any thought given to the logic of it.
However, it was an easy read despite it being frustrating and there were a few quotes in particular I enjoyed which make it a 2.
go here This is my first time reading Mr. Espinosa and this book got me crying in the first 11 pages and several "Get yourself together! You're a man! When i first saw it, i thought this is a romance novel and i was prepared for eye-rolling parts. Well, i never got the chance to do the exercise cause I enjoyed the adventure and how Mr. Espinosa put all the story together. If you love books that warm you up and get you to smile, this could be a book for you.
Oct 17, Chipi Lozano rated it really liked it. Despite reading so many bad opinions, this book was really special for me. One of my favourites, maybe because my situation and my age when I read it. One lost guy, different stories, a lot of lighthouses with names Capri island, where actually I had been The second time I read this book was aloud to my father I got a lot of lessons between the lines, I felt the need to underline some sentences.
Definit Despite reading so many bad opinions, this book was really special for me. Definitely it was special. This is a well-written philosophical novel in the likes of Paolo Coehlo, dressed up as a missing child case. Espinosa writes beautifully and has some interesting ideas but nothing original and groundbreaking enough to stick with you after you are finished with the book.
So sorry Mr Espinosa - but I disliked this book intensely, and it isn't often I say that. Writing style and comment - no thank you. And my feeling is that this book is full of cod-psychology at it's worst. And yes, I did read until the bitter end. I enjoyed this book but whilst reading it I wanted it to become so much more. I loved the concept.
And also who doesn't love a bright yellow cover? This book is a very quick read with the help of the short chapters.
