Read in March, 2009

This book was amazing. It takes place in Pays Basque specifically around Guernica. Recently Charles told me that he read this line by a literary critic, "the best books are not about ideas, but about people." I scoffed at the idea. After reading this book, I think the critic might have a point. This book made me feel so many things. Love for the Basque people and their culture. It doesn't hurt that I spent a week in French Basque country in 2007 and had one of the best times of my life. Hatred for was the Germans did under Hitler. A better understanding of the power of art-Picasso's painting Guernica was a thread in the story, and a desire to learn more about Euskadi. What I love about books is how they are about so much more than what they seem to be about and how they make you want to learn more about the world you live in. This is definitely one of those books that is more than it appears.
