    BOOKA Audiobooks brings you, for the first time in English and accompanied by an original music score , Lazarillo of Tormes. The novel that founded a literary genre during the Spanish Golden Age: the picaresque novel. Lazarillo is a boy of humble origins. After his stepfather is accused of thievery, his mother asks a wily blind beggar to take Lazarillo on as his apprentice. Little Lazaro develops his cunning while serving the blind beggar and several other masters.Raff Connor, un americano con más dinero que buen gusto, está decidido a encontrar a la mujer de sus sueños y a casarse con ella en menos de tres meses. Así que contrata a India Antúnez del Diego y Caballero de Alcántara, una joven de una de las mejores familias de Madrid venida a bastante menos, para que pula sus modales.A India le sorprende semejante encargo, pero a una mujer como ella, viuda y con dos personas a su cargo, que está hasta el cuello de deudas, no le queda mucho donde elegir.India pronto descubre que Raff es un gigantón con un sentido del humor hiperdesarrollado, y esos tres meses a su lado serán unos de los más divertidos que recuerda; sin embargo, no todo son risas en su vida, y no tendrá más remedio que hacer frente a algunos fantasmas del pasado que se empeñan en atormentarla.OPINIÓN DE LOS LECTORES:"Una novela que se lee en un día, porque engancha y por la fluidez con la que está escrita, con muchos sentimientos y un ligero toque de misterio, bien escrita y llena de diálogos que arrancan la sonrisa e incluso la carcajada, de las que te hacen disfrutar y con unos protagonistas que enamoran. ¿Qué más se puede pedir?"Lectura Adictiva"¿Aún no has leído este libro?...Si quieres divertirte, emocionarte y pasarlo genial y soñar con encontrar un hombre como Raff, no puedes dejar de leerlo."La magia de los libros y yo"Una historia fresca, con escenas divertidas y sin muchos altibajos. El personaje de Sol me ha robado el corazón, y el de Tata me ha recordado mucho a mi propia abuela. Hay que ver lo entrañables que pueden llegar a ser los personajes secundarios.Considero que el estilo de la autora es muy fino y pulido. Su modo de narrar es directo y conciso. Nos sumerge en la trama con facilidad, creando unos personajes cercanos y de buen corazón."Con estilo literario"Te quiero, baby, es una historia preciosa. Muy romántica, repleta de un sentido del humor exquisito que es una delicia, de situaciones cómicas unas veces, dulces en otras, y peligrosas a momentos. Hay amistad verdadera, ambiente familiar, sueños, tensión sexual, locura, emociones intensas, y ese “irse conociendo de a poco” que a mí me gusta tanto últimamente y que convierte una buena historia en una genial historia."Mi sangre derramada"He disfrutado mucho la lectura de esta novela. En primer lugar el estilo de la autora me encanta, sus novelas son siempre muy entretenidas, enganchan desde el primer momento y en ellas siempre descubrimos personajes maravillosos en situaciones descabelladas.Tres razones para leerlo:En primer la trama, es un poco Pigmalion a la inversa, lo cual es una novedad.En segundo lugar la protagonista, India; siento debilidad por las protagonistas fuertes.Y para terminar Raff, no puedo desvelar mucho sobre él sin quitarle todo el misterio a la trama, pero si puedo deciros que es una personaje extraordinario.Estantes atestados"Esta novela ha aportado un soplo de aire fresco con una historia ágil, creíble y preciosa. Leer algo de Isabel Keats es ir a lo seguro, sabes que en sus novelas hay grandes historias de amor amenizadas con dosis de humor desternillante. Vamos que te emociona a la vez que te ríes. A más, hay que decir que tiene una pluma amena que hace de sus novelas una lectura para nada pesada."Regálame romántica

    The action of Billy Budd is set within the claustrophobic confines of a British man-of-war ship in the mutiny shadowed summer of 1797.  Here, cramped between decks, live the crew of HMS Indomitable, many of them pressed into service against their will, and all bound by the Royal Navy’s iron discipline. The innocent and handsome Billy Budd, however, enjoys naval life. Claggart the evil master-at-arms, loathes such cheerful innocence and, setting out to entrap and ruin the young sailor, accuses him of mutiny. From this false charge springs a naval tragedy.

    Part comedy, part adventure, part social commentary, this astonishing tale of tomorrow explores the essence of human nature Published in 1904, G. K. Chesterton’s debut novel is set eighty years in the future. Technology and social mores remain the same, but the England of 1984 boasts a government in which ineffectual kings are selected at random from an otherwise apathetic populace that has “lost faith in revolutions.” The political system hits a snag when Auberon Quin is selected as the next monarch. More joker than potentate, Quin amuses himself by installing a series of laws and bizarre customs that inflate civic pomp and circumstance to laughable proportions. These policies inevitably put Quin, a leader who does not believes in any of his dictums, on a collision course with his most earnest supporter: Adam Wayne, otherwise known as the Napoleon of Notting Hill.   A favorite among scholars and critics, The Napoleon of Notting Hill showcases the eclectic wit and unorthodox intellect that established Chesterton as one of the twentieth century’s most influential and far-reaching thinkers.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
