LA OLA LATINA

by | Read by Jorge Ramos

Contemporary Culture • 3.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

[Editor's Note: The following review is in Spanish to reflect the language of the production. The English translation follows.]--Como autor y narrador, el Sr. Ramos habla de la influencia, cada día mas poderosa, del crecimiento de la población hispana en los Estados Unidos. Ramos es un de los locutores del noticiero principal de Univision Communications Inc, que con la central en Miami esta considerado como la red de comunicaciones en español mas poderosa en este país. Principalmente sus temas son de tipo político, pero también hablan de discriminación, lenguaje e inmigración. El lee sin emoción, de hecho lo hace de manera bastante fría y nos da la impresión de tener prisa por terminar. Aunque escrito y leído en español, el audiolibro contiene muchas palabras en ingles. El autor, incluso después de 17 anos viviendo en Estados Unidos, suena casi como si no hubiera hablado ingles anteriormente. J.A.H.

[Translation]--As author and narrator, Ramos speaks of the influence, every day more powerful, of the population growth of Hispanics in the United States. Ramos is co-anchor of the principal newscast of Univision Communications, Inc, based in Miami and considered the most powerful Spanish-broadcast network in the U.S. Mainly his subjects are political, but they also include topics such as discrimination, language, and immigration. He reads without emotion--in fact, his tone is cold and stiff--giving the impression of being hurried. Although written and narrated in Spanish, the audiobook contains many English words. Even though he has lived in the U.S. for 17 years, the author sounds like he hardly speaks English. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
