did not like it
Read from February 12 to 24, 2012

I don't think I am intellectual enough for this. I really didn't like the characters; nor did the plot appeal! What I did like was the prose...beautiful use of words. BIG words --- I was using context clues, etc. to figure out words I've never seen before. I also have tremendous respect for the translator. For the prose to flow as beautifully in English, as it most likely does in Spanish, is commendable. But the truth is I struggled to finish this book.
I think I need a coach!
