This book is a great find. It’s an adventure, a romance and a travel book giving the kind of portrait you don’t often see, because most writers don’t get quite as involved in the daily life of a country as the characters do here. I thought it gave a brutally honest account of what happened and compelling descriptions of Cuban life, most of which was really entertaining – and real. Most travel books just involve second-hand accounts and history; this got down-and-dirty with the people. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
