Publisher's Summary

La princesa de la literatura latinoamericana, está de regreso con la historia el legendario amor entre el conquistador Hernan Cortés y su intérprete, la india Malinalli. FonoLibro se enorgullece en presentar la nueva novela de la laureada escritora mexicana Laura Esquivel, Malinche, narrada por la laureada estrella mexicana Lucia Méndez.
Cuando Malinalli conoce a Cortés asume que se trata del propio Dios Quetzalcóatl que regresa a liberar a su pueblo. Los dos se enamoran apasionadamente, pero este amor pronto es destruido por la desmedida sed de conquista, poder y riqueza de Cortés.
A lo largo de la historia de México Malinalli/Malinche ha sido conocida por su traición al pueblo indio. Pero recientes investigaciones históricas han mostrado que Malinalli fue la mediadora entre dos culturas, la hispánica y la americana nativa; y entre dos lenguas, el español y el náhuatl.
Lo que Esquivel ha hecho aquí es desafiar la mitología tradicional mediante un retrato muy temperamental del Adán y la Eva de la cultura mestiza, Cortés y Malinalli, con la caída del imperio azteca como telón de fondo. Contada con el lirismo de la tradición cantarina y pictórica del náhuatl, Laura Esquivel nos brinda un mito fundacional de la cultura híbrida del Nuevo Mundo y una extraordinaria historia de amor.

Did not like it! Good book not a good audible.

I was so looking forward to listen to this book. Lucia Mendez is not good at narrating this story and the music does not help her. She over does it with the dramatic tone of voice. Could not hear more than 30mins. I just couldn't take it. I'll try to buy the printed book and read it even if it takes me weeks.

Nice book

The book is nice, but the background music drove me crazy. Especially since I was listening to this in part to practice my Spanish comprehension, the music made it hard to listen.
