The Wonder Singer

The Wonder Singer - George Rabasa The final chapters are a bit disappointing, but I loved the story of the diva, her first contact with the music and her memories of the Spanish Civil War.
After the second part of the book the story is more the one of the writer, his divorce and his weird companions. There are lovely little bits, but the style is totally different, good, but not the same mood of the first pages. Mercè Canals's story goes in the background and her final is poor. This turn is unexpected, a rupture in the charm of the story and thus the last pages disappointment.
