9788492833030: Volver a verte (Rocabolsillo Ficcion) (Spanish Edition)

Arthur, un joven arquitecto californiano, vuelve a Los Angeles despues de pasar una larga temporada en Paris. Sin embargo, durante todo este tiempo no ha conseguido olvidar a Lauren, el gran amor de su vida que le robo el corazon cuando, a raiz de un accidente, cayo en estado de coma. Gracias a la insistencia y la valentia de Arthur, Lauren siguio viviendo, a pesar de la opinion del doctor y de la madre de desenchufar los aparatos que la mantenian con vida. Estos, avergonzados, le hicieron jurar que jamas confesaria la verdad a la joven, que no recuerda nada de aquellos meses. Arthur cumple su palabra, desaparece de su vida e intenta olvidarla. Cuando vuelve a Los Angeles el destino hara que se reencuentren. / This is the book, by a French architect based in San Francisco, that made a huge Hollywood deal, and then a seven-figure sale to Pocket Books. It's an interesting study in the difference between a movie concept and a novel. One can imagine it as an offbeat romantic comedy on the screen, with charismatic actors and some nifty special effects, but as a book it's slight and one-dimensional--and it doesn't help that Levy has no ear whatsoever for American speech patterns. The gimmick at the heart of the story is a mixture of the movie notion of ""meeting cute"" and the Invisible Man tradition. Arthur, a young architect in San Francisco, finds a beautiful girl hiding in the closet of an apartment he has just bought. The problem is, only he can see her; she is, in fact, a spirit emanation of Lauren, a nurse who is lying in a coma at a nearby hospital after a near-fatal accident; the apartment used to be hers. After initially rejecting her explanation, Arthur begins to fall for Lauren, and determines that he must remove her comatose body from the hospital before her grieving mother can bring herself to cut off her life support. Helped by his skeptical business partner, Arthur accomplishes this with a borrowed ambulance and Lauren's knowledge of how the hospital works. Then the ""body,"" along with the attendant invisible Lauren, is spirited away to the Carmel hideaway Arthur has kept since his beloved mother's death from cancer. (Life with mother is rendered in a series of saccharine scenes that would embarrass a maker of life insurance commercials.) George Pilger, one of the most improbable American police inspector ever to grace the pages of a novel, gets onto Arthur's escapade and goes down to Carmel to confront him. Will Arthur be arrested? Will Lauren die?
