9788466321235: El quinto hijo/ The Fifth Child (Narrativa) (Spanish Edition)

Harriet and David want the same things: a family and a happy home. They marry, and at first all is idyllic, but with the fifth pregnancy things begin to sour. After a difficult birth, he develops faster and grows bigger than ordinary infants; he is unloving and disliked by his siblings. Harriet finds herself faced with a dark sub-continent of human nature, unable to cope. Lessing has written an ominously tangible novel, a powerfully simple contemporary horror story that makes for compulsive reading.

Description in Spanish: Harriet y David estan enamorados, deciden casarse y formar un hogar en donde poder criar felices a sus hijos. Despues de los cuatro primeros ninos, la llegada del quinto parece prometer aun mas dicha a la pareja. Sin embargo, el bebe se empieza a mover en las entranas de Harriet demasiado pronto y con demasiada violencia. Harriet da a luz en un dificil parto y eso no es mas que el comienzo: el nino se desarrolla de forma inusual y se convierte en un extrano para sus hermanos... Un inquietante retrato de familia que habla crudamente de la naturaleza humana.
