it was amazing

The Memory of Fire Trilogy is beautifully written, ironic, funny, sad, unbelievable, historical, and I will read this series over and over. For those who dislike history, check this out- history isn't dead, according to Galeano- it's alive: breathing, twisting, forming our ideas about the present- it's uplifting and brutal, often for those who have no voice- Galeano gives them a voice with this trilogy, presenting Latin American/world history from the views of those on the periphery.
