Summary

Por el autor de Reina Roja y Loba negra.

Una aventura épica.

Andalucía, 1587. En medio de un pueblo arrasado por la peste, uno de los comisarios de abastos del rey Felipe II encuentra a un niño que aún se aferra a la vida. Arriesgando su carrera, lo rescata de las garras de la muerte y lo lleva a Sevilla, sin poder imaginar lo que acabará suponiendo ese acto.

Una Sevilla en la que ricos y pobres luchan por sobrevivir.

Unos años más tarde, el joven Sancho se encuentra en las calles de una sociedad moldeada por la pobreza, la guerra y las intrigas. Abandonado a su ingenio y voluntad, crecerá para convertirse en el defensor de los desfavorecidos y las causas justas, y junto a sus compañeros tendrá que enfrentarse a un desafío de cuya resolución dependerá el mismo destino de la ciudad de Sevilla.

Una historia que te cambiará para siempre.

La leyenda del ladrón despliega en sus páginas una magistral historia de aventuras, esperanza y amor en la Sevilla del siglo XVI, en la que los protagonistas batallarán contra las injusticias y adversidades para encontrar su lugar en el mundo.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

wishy-washy

The story was a bit boring, a bit long-winded and lacking pace, a bit ridiculous in places. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it.

The narration is mostly good, though there are some pauses mid or between sentences where it feels like the voice actor is turning the page in the book or taking an odd break which can impair the listening experience.

Electrizante!!

Una ventura apasionante, llena de detalles que definen al protagonista y que te hacen entender su destino. Está increíblemente leída, creando tensión y suspense en cada capítulo. Me ha encantado!

Readable - but credible?

The all action plot held my attention but at times the lack of realism with character and plot was too much to swallow. The background detail used to show poverty and injustice deserved a more credible and thoughtful story-line.

NO IMITEIS ACENTOS

El libro muy bueno, está bien escrito y es interesante. Pero no imiteis acentos, y menos el andaluz. No sé si ese señor es andaluz, pero quiero arrancarme la cara de coraje cada vez que le escucho hablar en sevillano. Y eso que soy de Sevilla de to la vida y estoy orgulloso de mí acento. Pero...

NO HACÍA FALTA PONER ACENTOS.

Enserio debéis volver a hacerlo sin acentos.
