5.0 su 5 stelle An absolute page-turner! Mr. Romero's has written an amazing book. 16 aprile 2014
Di Jjncsu - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
"The Colors of Eden" is a bravely honest and harrowing look at childhood dreams, abandonment, abuse, despair and, ultimately, love and redemption. Mr. Romero's story is simply amazing. Richly told, he captures the sights, sounds and flavors of Mexico -- his happy childhood (all too brief) in Tijuana; of being sent to live with an abusive aunt in Mexico City after his parents separate; and his escape from her cruelty by running away -- and his encounters with even greater cruelties as he tries to make his way back to Tijuana and his father.
This book should be made into a movie. It should be required reading in schools. It is a great book.
5.0 su 5 stelle I highly recommend it. 8 novembre 2014
Di Paul L. Tsompanas - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Fernando Romero pours his heart and soul into this moving memoir of a boy abandoned by parents to suffer the torments of an abusive aunt, a gang rape by hardened criminals while imprisoned and finally the lonely and hungry life of a street urchin in the slums of Mexico. Yet, this resilient, brave youth survives it all to become a husband, father and a highly respected journalist in Southern California. His is a story of struggle and survival the reader will ponder and remember long after he or she closes this book. Well done! I highly recommend it.
5.0 su 5 stelle Elegant and haunting 14 aprile 2014
Di Emmet - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The simple elegance of Fernando Romero's writing makes the haunting story of his life as a poor, abused and desperately searching young boy, and his triumph as a man of accomplishment, all that more powerful.
It is at times funny, raw, pathetic, joyous. He was not a perfect kid and doesn't present himself as a perfect man. But he is a hero, a solid and good guy, someone to have a drink with, to be friends with, someone for those of us who do not know him personally to admire and respect.
His story will teach you, will inspire you, will move you. So very glad I read this book.
5.0 su 5 stelle RIVETING TALE OF RESILIENCE 20 giugno 2014
Di Intrepid Spirit - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
It's hard to imagine a more grim childhood than the one Fernando Romero lived. Rejected by his parents, shipped away to an abusive aunt in Mexico City, he became a child of the streets long before adolescence. He endured abuse of all kinds, including gang rape by hardened criminals when imprisoned for the crime of sleeping on a park bench. Yet the child gravitated toward kind souls he encountered, and held onto memories of those he admired. And, eventually, he overcame it all. What resilience! Romero's tale, told in simple, straight-forward style, is riveting.
5.0 su 5 stelle Overcoming adversity in a big way 27 febbraio 2014
Di John H. McLaren - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The Colors of Eden is a wonderful if unsettling read. Fernando Romero had an amazing life as a youngster, traveling around his native Mexico, sleeping in doorways. living hand-to-mouth, and somehow emerging stronger than ever, headed for a successful career as a writer, journalist and family man in the U.S .. This very well written book covers Romero from the ages of 12 to 20. While this gripping story is hard to put down, it’s not for kids, with graphic descriptions of events such as a gang rape in a prison in Matamoros. But in the end it’s an inspiring tale of adversity overcome.
