Absolutely phenomenal. Not the most natural flow because it takes a while to grow accustomed to the cyclical flow of the story. At first you find yourself thinking, if one more member of this family makes that same goddamn mistake as his brother/father/grandfather/uncle made, I'm going to burn this book. SInce I have strong feelings about book burning, I stuck with it. There are dangers associated with taking such a grand, sweeping account of a family, a town, a country. This book was (I think) a metaphor for the Columbian oppression by the Europeans and their subsequent revolution- a pretty intense story to take on and in such a delicate, thoughtful way.
