Showing a generations way of being, speak and act is no easy task, however Massiani illustrates it perfectly in this young-adult story, at the same dealing with the existential inquiries all teens deal. Mar 26, Alexandro Talamo rated it really liked it. It is good to have a picture of Caracas social areas for young people. Also it's very interesting the way in which is presented the loneliness of a writer in a big city.

Corcho is i ndividualist and self-absorbed; the novel takes us into his head and attempts to make us share his angst.
