This is one of the longest books I ve read in Spanish but it was so gripping that I got through it uicker than I would have expected The original is actually in English but I like reading novels in Spanish translation just for some Spanish practice The prose style is absolutely dazzling this guy can REALLY write His writing is that rare prize spare and elegant yet full His descriptions of the southern California countryside are so vivid you can not only picture it but smell it taste it and touch it Yet he shows not tellsSo you may wonder Why only two stars instead of four or five Because it is unremittingly unforgivingly grim This has to be one of the most depressing books I ve ever read The father character who s the main focus of the book is to my taste at least not likeable in the least and one of the few characters whom I did actually like ends up doing something awful even if understandable and meets a tragic end Augh Yeah yeah I know the author s making a statement but by the end of the book I felt like I d been punched in the gut knocked down and then run over by a Mack truck I felt like I d been punished and abused which is perhaps what the Chicano author wanted to achieve I can see the reasons for his rage and fury but to me it all felt so over the top hopeless by the end I felt so pounded and battered that instead of inducing me to share his righteous indignation it just made me want to go numb to go away somewhere and wash the bad taste out of my mouth Greek Mythology Mythology Around the World yet full His descriptions of the southern California countryside are so vivid Desperately Seeking Someone Life Goes On Desperately Seeking Someone #2 yeah I know the author s making a statement but by the end of the book I felt like I d been punched in the gut knocked down and then run over by a Mack truck I felt like I d been punished and abused which is perhaps what the Chicano author wanted to achieve I can see the reasons for his rage and fury but to me it all felt so over the top hopeless by the end I felt so pounded and battered that instead of inducing me to share his righteous indignation it just made me want to go numb to go away somewhere and wash the bad taste out of my mouth
