    1. This Too Shall Pass is the story of a woman who s mother has recently died She is learning to deal with this in her own ways including escaping to her childhood home and reconnecting with seemingly every man she comes across To each his own, right The moral of the story and don t worry, I m not giving anything away here is that each moment exists only in that moment Each moment passes on, and eventually is then a part of the past as well An appreciate each moment sort of thing, if you will The t [...]


    2. Entre chick lit al nivel de Nuria Roca y Susanna Tamaro Esto que Anagrama vende como novela no es m s que el recuento de los hombres con los que ha follado o se ha quedado con las ganas Milena Busquets Una mujer de cuarenta a os a la que le gusta el dinero ganado sin demasiado esfuerzo y gastado con generosidad, que cree que el sexo es la soluci n para todo, y que la amistad entre hombres y mujeres se reduce a un coqueteo mutuo No soporto su clasismo barnizado de progresismo pijo por un lado, es [...]


    3. Did absolutely nothing for me had to force myself to keep reading out of courtesy to LibraryThing Early Reviewer s program who sent me the book But, as I told myself when I forced myself to turn the page, This too shall pass.


    4. La infinita banalidadNo es f cil escribir de algo que te ha decepcionado No es f cil leer en un faj n 3 edici n, no es f cil leer en la solapa el manuscrito de esta novela despert una extraordinaria expectaci n en Frankfurt y se han firmado contratos de edici n en m s de veinte pa ses, no es f cil perder a una madre ni tampoco es f cil sentirse como un salm n nadando a contracorriente cuando eres incapaz de encontrar una rese a negativa de este libro Todo son elogios brillante, l cida, conmovedo [...]

    7. Ugh, I just can t I m 50 pages in and already fed up with the insanely annoying heroine, the writing style that can only be described as verbal diarrhea I m sorry, I know that s gross , and the supremely awkward language this last may be the fault of the translator I can t say for sure I feel bad, because I won this in a First Reads giveaway and I usually like Hogarth Press s offerings, but life is just too short for bad books.



    8. Review originally published at Nudge.A bestseller in Spain, this translated novel examines common literary themes grief and the self discovery that follows But with liberal helpings of sex and philosophy, it s far from a familiar retread For some strange reason, I never considered what it would be like to be forty And yet here I am It s my mother s funeral, and if that s not bad enough, I m forty With these lines, Blanca s story begins Her mother s death leaves her in a state of profound shock, [...]


    9. De un aburrimiento y una egolatria tipica de la literatura actual A quien puede intereasrle todo lo aqui narrado Solo a la propia narradora que recurre a los lugares mas comunes de la literatura y de la vida como el sexo post muerte de un ser querido.Anagrama sigue perdiendo terreno con ediciones de este tipo Solo la podria salvar la correcta traduccion de sus libros, deuda historica.Whatever Busquets, guste o no, lo que escribe no es ficcion Es una mera y mediocre autoayuda.


    10. I received this book for free through LibraryThing s Early Reviewers Based on the other reviews I ve seen for this book, I was expecting this book to be awful However, I enjoyed it I think what makes most people dislike it is the style There are a lot of long chunky paragraphs Also, the dialogue is distinguished by hyphens, and not quotation marks, and that can annoy some readers.I thought this book dealt with grief and death of a loved one very well It s a story about a 40 year old woman trying [...]


    11. I wasn t wild about this book It started out slow for me but I wanted to give it a chance I did like it as I got into it but ultimately, it s just not my cup of tea.


    12. Es breve y te sacude como una ola inesperada Vale para subrayar frases, memorizarlas y regalarlas Una l cida foto del presente Me dio mucha pena terminarla.


    13. Me esperaba mucho m s de este libro, hay cosas que s y otras que no entend a de su protagonista Y cuando pensaba que la lectura ya no remontar a he encontrado en sus ultimas cuatro p ginas lo que yo quer a leer Un final precioso y emocionante, aunque el resto de la novela no me ha dicho mucho m s Salvar a algunas frases y el estilo de su autora.


    14. Decepcionante El libro est lleno de sentencias pueriles, ligerezas y pompas de jab n No escribe mal la se ora pero lo que cuenta me interesa cero y ella me resulta irritante.


    15. I was curious about This Too Shall Pass by Milena Busquets because of the subject matter A woman Blanca is dealing with the death of her mother It s many years since my mother died but I still deal with it, I still grieve her loss I miss the things I never shared with her my children, my career, my maturing I miss her perspective on her life But most of all, I feel with Bianca, My place in the world was in your gaze, and I have spent my life, in part, looking to replace that gaze, even if it is [...]

    17. Cr nica de un bluffCuando uno lee Tambi n esto pasar le invade la sensaci n de que todo lo que nos cuenta Milena es superficial y ajeno No he conseguido sentir nada por la protagonista ni por su crisis existencial a ra z de la muerte de su madre Ni por muchas de sus ideas sobre c mo es la gente de tal o cu l generaci n Me irrita que crea que las experiencias que narra en esta novela son universales y que todos las hemos vivido, cuando no son otra cosa que hechos y vivencias con las que solo se p [...]

    19. He terminado de leerlo y no sab a si ponerle dos estrellas o cinco Lo dejo en cuatro Milena escribe realmente bien, con un estilo calmado, cuidado y simple, pero escribe sin decir nada A decir verdad, yo la entiendo es un libro que surge del deseo de sacar hacia afuera todo lo que llevaba dentro Por eso carece de argumento y se basa s lo en la expresi n es un libro que surge del dolor Todos hemos escrito algo as en alg n momento de nuestra vida en que no est bamos bien Lo verdaderamente dif cil [...]


    20. Fluix, fluix N esperava molt m s Autora revelaci , entre els llibres m s venuts, tradu t a un munt de lleng es, en faran una pel l cula, etc No enganxa, no est ben resolt, no empatitzes amb el personatge que m s aviat et resulta pueril i antip tic.


    21. Maybe 3.5 The cover is gorgeous I am so bothered that it s not yet on Originally published in Spanish, it reads in that kind of choppy yet lyrical way that translated stuff often does and I love that Blanca is 40, twice divorced 2 kids , and has just buried her mother The whole short 200 story is Blanca talking thinking venting to her mother, about her life and what her mom has left behind Blanca has a lot of love, both romantic and platonic, in her life but her one true love has always been her [...]


    22. No es literatura Es un divertimento de domingo por la tarde No me parece mal escrito pero, definitivamente, est sobrevalorado.



    23. Milena Busquets utiliza su segunda novela Tambi n esto pasar 2015, Anagrama , con la que ha ganado bastante reconocimiento literario, como v a para comunicar a su madre, la famosa editora Esther Tusquets, el proceso de duelo que vivi a la hora de aceptar su muerte Por supuesto, debemos distinguir a la autora de la voz narrativa pero, sin duda alguna, Blanca, personaje principal, y Milena comparten, al menos, ese proceso En Tambi n esto pasar , el papel protagonista lo lleva Blanca, aunque le d e [...]


    24. Considering the subject of this book is grief, I found this a very light and fun read not the sort of thing I would usually go for but highly enjoyable all the same The protagonist, who has recently lost her mother, spends the summer at her childhood home by the sea with her children, her two ex partners and an assortment of friends There s lots of drinking, smoking, drug taking, sex and sunshine I m not sure it would have worked if it were set in a rainy English seaside town but the Mediterrane [...]

    26. Simple pero hermoso No es algo rebuscado, es bastante realista Ni muy corto ni tediosamente largo, justo Con un estilo narrativo muy bello, repleto de im genes, frases preciosas y algunas reflexiones que te dejan pensando, un punto de vista que s lo se adquiere con la experiencia Ideal para aquellas personas que hemos perdido alg n ser querido, aquellos que est n atravesando o intentando atravesar un duelo Me ayud a entender un poco m s mi situaci n, a saber que no soy el nico que se siente as , [...]


    27. This was a great book to listen to on audio Busquets has a voice that manages to be sad yet strong at the same time, and is a voice I never tired of listening to This is about a 40 year old feminist woman whose mother has just died It s not just about her it s her words to her mother as she tries to go on living life She tries to find meaning in the things she has always done sleeping with men , and when that doesn t work, she tries harder men and add marijuana However, along the way of trying [...]
