Synopsis: El amor no es nada del otro mundo is a love story with a comedic tone and a touch of fantasy.
Ismael is 38 years old living a grey and boring life, which is why he dedicates the majority of his free time inventing himself an idyllic existence on Facebook. All the while, he is trying to locate the person that was once his best friend, his secret love and his worst nightmare, the wonderful and maddening Amanda Saldana, of whom he has not heard anything for twenty years. Ismael never dared confess his feelings; however, he never lost hope that a second opportunity would allow him to amend his error. What he never imagined was that perhaps that opportunity would not be given to him in this world.
El amor no es nada del otro mundo is a novel about parallel universes in which a peculiar love triangle and an eccentric group of secondary characters will make us reflect between laughter on the idealization of love, the pursuit of dreams, and happiness in the age of Facebook
