Publisher's Summary

La historia de amor de America. La novela romantica colombiana y de America por excelencia, María ha deleitado y conmovido a sus lectores por mas de un siglo, ya que en esta obra estan no solo el tierno y tragico idilio de Efrain y María, sino tambien el paisaje vallecaucano en todo su esplendor. Esta obra de Isaacs, un descendiente de judios provenientes de Curazao, se ha distinguido tambien por su hermoso lenguaje y lo acertado de su desarrollo argumental, que dentro de su gran sencillez, revela a un autor que sabe como llegar a lo mas profundo de sus personajes. La voz de Fabio Camero, celebre actor de radio y de television, sabe mostrar el drama de esta consagrada obra maestra.This is a beautiful 19th century novel, a classic of Latin American literature. It's about the story of a young Jewish Colombian woman (Jorge Isaacs was Jewish) and the love of her life, a young man she grows up with. It's set in the Andean region of Colombia with beautifully depicted imagery of the natural settings and the customs of the times. It is both tragic and inspiring, and there is a good reason why it's a classic. It's characters, the scenery, and the haunting ending are very memorable.

Ok

I own the book but have yet to read it. I thought I would break into it by doing the audio first. I was so confused by who was who, as it seems that the book moves through different characters and only uses one voice. I know it's a classic, but I may have to actually read it to enjoy it.
