This book is widely recognized as a classic, but I was not overly impressed. There were some very beautiful parts and I could certainly see why it is so highly regarded, but I didn't love it. This new edition did not help. There were so many mistakes, it made it hard to read. Missing or misspelled words, letters smooshed together, repeated phrases, bad typesetting... I think it's great they decided to re-edit this book, I just wish they had done it well. Maybe I'll read this is in another editio...more
This book absolutely tops my list of "hot" books, just above Under the Volcano and One Hundred Years of Solitude. Heat is a character in Clitandre's novel of Haiti, and it blankets the impressionistic episodes and eras of the island. Beyond the heat, though, the novel is a perfect peoples' history of a singular nation, complete despite its length. Read it.
