I like it
11 March 2001 | by Naty Oreiro FanSee all my reviews

When I first tuned in, I thought is was very bad. But then, it started getting exciting, and I wanted to know what will happen next. Many people I know also liked this soap opera. Sure, some characters are extremely naive, but it's not so bad. I would also recommend Muneca Brava, Pobre Diabla, Nunca te Olvidare, Siempre tu Susperes, and Maria la del Barrio. The story wasn't that bad either. I liked every character for something. I liked Paulina because she was honest, Paola because she was always so free and always planning, and so on. People think that soap operas are the worst, but they aren't always that bad.
