It seems to me that the novel is very interesting its title attracts a lot. It seems to me that the author wants to communicate the unconditional love between two people and that it must be maintained like this and the obstacles that pass the important thing is humility and simplicity. This novel in my opinion is memorable because it tells a very beautiful story that can be applied to real life.
It is a very beautiful experience that leaves us, since you start reading you transport yourself to history and it is as if you live in it, it may not sometimes be understandable, but the story is very beautiful, in addition to it does not leave usa single teaching if not several.
