Primero està Stephan , el que tiene màs minas de las que puede manejar PEEERO todavìa està a tiempo de pasar a OTRA vida .

Le sigue Jake ,que es igual de infiel que Stephan PEEERO no va a cambiar nunca .El eterno pirata . El que va a tener sesenta años y va a seguir corriendo atràs de cualquier veinteañera que se le cruze.

Le sigue al final Darnell , el que todavìa cree en la monogamia y pretende ser fiel para toda la vida ---Hasta que cae rendido ante una chica sensible que no hace màs que admirarlo . Sin embargo , a diferencia de los anteriores Darnell es el que se resiste . (Y eso que lo de el es amor) . El que es infiel con el corazòn.

El 90% de los hombres que aparecen ademàs de esos tres principales son una basura tras otra . (Bah ,en mi opinión, obvio. Y ,basura es una palabra fuerte pero todavía no se me ocurre otra). Todos meten los cuernos ,todos mienten , todos traicionan de una manera u otra .

A ver....

No quiero caer en la misandria que mi psicòloga cree que me domina el caracter de tanto en tanto pero me parece honesta la manera en que el autor representa a esa mayoria de hombres . Punto .

Màs alla de mi opiniòn sobre lo que trata la historia (bastante larga , por cierto) , el libro megustó muchísimo . Es entretenido , dramático por momentos pero al final resulta ser el más light que leí -hasta ahora -de Dickey . Habla de la infidelidad , el machismo ,la amistad entre hombres ,la amistad entre mujeres , la mala influencia de los matrimonios en conflicto sobre la crianza de los hijos , los celos entre amigos y otras cosas más.

Muy bueno. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0451203003, Paperback)

After a brief detour to New York City for Milk in My Coffee, Eric Jerome Dickey returns to Southern California for his fourth multi-track African American love story. The main story is a "he said, she said" affair between Stephan Mitchell, a well-to-do young software designer who's determined not to let any one woman get in the way of his good time, and Chanté Marie Ellis, who's decided to start turning the tables on men who try to play her for a fool. From now on, she declares, "A dog gets what a dog gets... dogged." Dickey makes their road to romance extremely rocky; in addition to sorting out their own feelings for each other, both Stephan and Chanté have to contend with exes who have just gotten out of their lives. Meanwhile, Stephan's best friend, Darnell, is having problems with his marriage: he wants to be a writer, but his wife insists that he put aside the "hobby" to pay more attention to her. When he meets Chanté's friend Tammy, an up-and-coming actress-singer who not only understands Darnell's artistic passion but encourages him, his commitment to marital fidelity is pushed to the limit.

As always, Dickey shows that he's on top of the current scene, peppering his characters' lives with the latest in black fashion and culture (if you ever find yourself driving in the Los Angeles area, you'll know exactly what your radio presets should be). Although the ending might be a little too neatly wrapped up, you'll never know before you get there whether the next chapter's going to contain romance, comedy, heartache--or maybe a little of each. Dickey's at the top of his form in Cheaters, establishing yet another credential for his status at the top of the contemporary urban romance heap. --Ron Hogan
