Yep, although I wrote that tweet because I just bought two novels at the airport and I have tons of academic readings waiting for my attention

I would guess for the same reason french fries taste much better when you steal them from the person sitting right next to you 😇

Or atmospheric horror novels vs that academic book you really should be reading *now*

Why is there always a book that looks much more alluring than that other book you need to read?

(Fin de hilo) David, por su experiencia internacional y lecturas, está cualificado para ir más allá de los detalles y proporcionar un análisis personal más universal. Tal vez “El Director” merezca una secuela.

3. Echo en falta (y mucho) una reflexión más generalizada sobre el estado del periodismo, y no sólo en España. El libro se pierde en las anécdotas y no intenta hacer inferencias. Puede que esto sea intencional, por supuesto, pero me parece una oportunidad perdida.

(La consecuencia de esto en algunos casos, me temo, puede que sea interpretar el libro como un desquite personal).

2. El uso de seudónimos y la falta de contexto histórico sobre muchas personas mencionadas daña la inteligibilidad del libro. Si no has trabajando en El Mundo o estás muy al tanto del mundillo del periodismo madrileño, te falta contexto para entender qué está pasando.

Leí “El director”, de , el día en que salió en formato e-book, pero me ha llevado unos días organizar mis opiniones Abro hilo: 1. Es un buen libro. Lo recomiendo a cualquiera que se disponga a hacer periodismo en España, o que esté ya en el ramo.
