One of my favorite novelas
8 July 2006 | by jay-743See all my reviews

This show was amazing when I saw it in high school and it still is now. Every character is interesting, even the minor ones, and most of them go through several changes. They use several love triangles, including about three that include Roberto de la O. Its rife with soap clichés, but they are handled in ways that work, that don't feel very forced, and the incredibly talented actors make this an interesting story on multiple levels. Like the best soaps, it involves incredibly complex relationship networks that still never leave you confused. Still, whenenver you think you know what will happen, they drop a bomb on you, and the dramatic tensions are insane, as these people hold tight their crazy secrets, and you keep wondering what cat will come out of the bag next.
