Read from January 12 to 22, 2012

Just when I was about to give up on this month's selection of $3.99 or less Kindle books on Amazon... I came across this one and decided to give it a try...

And... it is love at first sentence... "Justo Ansotegui returns to the market now to hear the language and to buy soap. He places bars in scattered dishes where he can catch their scent during the day, although they fail to mask the odors of the livestock that have lived in his house for generations..."


Finished this yesterday afternoon. Still a solid 4 star book. I recommend it for those who liked UNDER FISHBONE CLOUDS by Sam Meeking, THE THOUSAND AUTUMNS OF JACOB DE ZOET by David Mitchell or ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE. It is a very visual book... describing lives that both wonderful and terrible, with Picasso's famous painting as a backdrop.
