I'm an Anglo who teaches high school Spanish in a suburb of Houston. I listen to these stories for entertainment and to improve my Spanish.
This story was written in very comprehensible Spanish and read by a good reader. Most important, the story was sensational! I could visualize the two boys waving to the train conductor. I could imagine the family's anguish when the baby got sick. It was a very touching story. I listened to it twice.

I really liked this book. It's simple, but I found it to be very compelling. I appreciated his lack of drama. When you've finished one of the chapters you become aware that you just read something very moving, but that it wasn't "in your face". He doesn't use dramatic adjectives to tell the story. He doesn't use excessive literary devices. He just tells the story, and let's the story carry itself. I kept trying to understand why the story was so compelling to me because the author doesn't try to introduce drama or suspense as a literary device. The book is also good for an intermediate student of Spanish.
