To be honest with the readers of this book, I must confess that the story which breathes life into it is not the fruit of my imagination. An old friend told it to me, melancholy and inebriated, on a night out drinking. His narrative immediately captivated me, the dramatic nature of its circumstances made an impression on me. When I saw him again a few days later, I asked for his permission to write this novel incorporating his experiences. He took the opportunity to state that his tale had been a delusion caused by alcohol. However, with a wink of his left eye, he told me that I owed the paternity of the idea to him.
So he insisted that he should provide the prologue for this work with a poem that he had dedicated to Mar del Plata when he was young. I accepted his proposal without acquainting myself with further details, keeping my growing curiosity in check. Later I found out about many more things which I cannot reveal because they would affect third parties. I can only say this to you: although I am not in a position to state that the events described herein really took place, I can certainly guarantee that THEY COULD HAVE TAKEN PLACE...
THE SCENE OF THE EVENTS
MAR DEL PLATAYou doze, lying back in the night,overflowing with lights and scents.The waves kiss you, my beloved,with lips blue and briny.Breathed in on the deserted beaches isthe nostalgic absence of voices,the rain makes you fertile with friendly tears.Festooned with grass, with rocks and flowers,thus you rest.Sensual and adolescent,your heartbeats bathe in purest foam,they transport melodies, fly high and far,travelling on the sea wind...You slowly stretch, warming up as day breaks.The sun awakens you, but still you dream.You lavish hopes, take memories from your gallery,sow magical sentiments...City, you are my bride, synthesis of a sunny yesterday,refuge of warm loves shipwrecked in time.Bewitching, you make destiny yours,offering your rapture of songs.Roberto Burán

Wonderful. I think that the story is fascinating, the situacion is provocative, and the end is surprising. Congratulations. It's a fantastic book. I'm so happy to have found it.
In my opinion, Ricardo Ludovico Gulminelli is an excellent writer... I'm from Miami Beach (Florida) and I have been studying Spanish since 1999 and I'm very happy indeed that I had the opportunity to be able to read this wonderful book. I know that I liked it because he described everything so well, as if he had lived it, and I felt very identificated. I hope to read more materials from Ricardo Ludovico Gulminelli. Thank you!
I fell in love after reading the description of the character Roberto Burán of Fraudulent Fertilisation (Episode 11). The man I am currently dating is so much like him... except, he's not an Attorney. I work with Attorneys. I'm a legal assistant... and I think Attorneys are so fascinating!
Me gustó la obra: me hizo sentir deseos de seguir leyendo página a página, no sólo por la trama, también porque me sentí identificado con su protagonista, su forma de ver las relaciones, su concepto de la mujer como compañera e igual. Hay también manifestaciones sobre determinados temas (aborto, matrimonio) que comparto y me hicieron reforzar mis propias opiniones.
Soy un asiduo lector y hacía mucho tiempo que un libro no me despertaba tantas emociones. Gracias a Badosa por publicar libros así (además gratuitos).
Creo que se trata de una novela-folletín que, en cuanto atañe a aspectos judiciales, está muy bien documentada; se nota que el autor procede de la abogacía y judicatura. En el e-mail que le envié, le dije que vale más un folletín bien relatado que novela suspirada, pero no conseguida. Salut i tenis-sala.
Como escribe de lo que entiende, se le entiende todo lo que escribe. Salut i tenis-sala.
Éste ha sido un gran libro, donde el lector se va adentrando a la vida de cada uno de los personajes, es un libro bien documentado en cada uno de los temas a los que se refiere. Debo felicitar a Badosa.com por brindarnos este servicio.
Mi opinión es que es una historia excelente. Me atrapó verdaderamente leer el libro, me enseñó, comprendí lo complejo que puede ser un tema que parece tan simple. Es un orgullo tener académicos de tan alto estirpe, espero que el Dr. Ricardo Gulminelli haga otras obras tan interesantes como es Fecundación fraudulenta.
Es un libro muy interesante, muy bien planteado, que lo atrapa en su lectura de principio a fin. Lo recomiendo ampliamente.
Inquietante la secretaria, se llama Estela, como mi hermana ídem de un médico... Un saludo Ricardo,
Un libro que atrapa, una historia plausible, muy bien tratado el tema, mis felicitaciones para el Dr Ricardo Gulminelli.
