Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 20 years ago. Una fabulosa historia muy bien recomendada. Benitez' first novel that I was being lulled into a gentle portrait of the interconnectedness of the people of the village of Santiago and I enjoyed that, most of the time. At other times, I felt that the author, in the name of verisimilitude, strove to re-create the village life so much that it got in the way of the truth of the story. This is a real good book. I love the plot of the story. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 21 years ago.

This is a excellent book everyone should read it does not lie

wow I would read this book to bed like everyday for a week. Its rare how all the chapters are characters yet they all click and are linked one way or the other. The ending was sad yet it was different. It's a good book to read. It's not a book that will hit your soul but it is a good book b/c is a story you wouldnt be surprise to hear from your grandmother.
Mavivasa
This book grows in strength and interest through to the end. It is not as good as her Bitter Grounds, which is tremendous. She draws the people well and the reader cares about them. (I hate the books where you don't care about what happens to anybody in them.)
Frei
Absolutely one if the best books I have read! So insightful, and so we'll written. You will never again look at AIDS the same again.

What a great book. Read it in high school and bought it for my cousin who likes to read but doesn't have time so she likes to read nice short stories.
Lahorns Gods
I bought this book based on the review that is was like John Steinbeck's "The Pearl" but this was nothing like that. I missed the sensitivity and caring feeling in this book.
Goll
This was a book club selection. I personally like books about Mexico and its people and this one was particularly good. The author pulled me right into the little village of Santiago and the lives of the characters. Like Mexican life itself, there was some joy, some sorrow and every bit beautifully written.
Book was good however did not keep my interest
