Dos comentarios sobre los angeles anterior novela del autor Las colinas de Brooklyn: «Un magnífico ejemplo de novela río que demuestra l. a. maestría narrativa del autor. Su aparente facilidad de lectura manifiesta hasta qué punto Fernando P. Fuenteamor ha hilado todos sus hilos —y son multitud— con los angeles pericia de un gran contador de historias...».

«Un debut tardío pero extraordinario. A los que conocemos a Fuenteamor desde sus inicios no nos sorprende. Las colinas de Brooklyn son six hundred páginas escritas con los angeles experiencia de años llenos de batallas ganadas o perdidas. Que sus personajes sean gays es solo un accidente. Su historia de amor es de las que dejan huella.» Daniel Tubau
