Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

I skimmed over this in Spanish, and while most of the problems exist in the original, it’s definitely true that the translation does it no favors. The awkward narration—so intrusive the story feels like an incomplete outline—can be blamed on the author. The awkward sentences, for the most part, are the fault of the translator
