Just didn't want this book to end. It's a beautiful, circular tale of the rise and fall of a family which serves as an allegory for the struggles and upheavals of Colombia. The writing is so alive with passion and fury and eroticism and magic that I literally felt kind of breathless towards the end. And then as soon as I finished it I wanted to turn back to the start and read it again.

Kate I read this book in a college course about folklore and fairytales. I found it to be a facinatingly rich and complex story and couldn't put it down. It's still one of my favorite reads.
