it was ok

This novel deals with German emigrants to Colombia in the forties and the blacklists that sprung up as a response. It’s certainly a part of history I knew nothing about (although, admittedly, Colombian history is not my strong point) and it has some interesting points to make. However, I found the prose – or at least this translation of it – to be dry and wilfully dense, so that a lot of my initial interest had evaporated by the time I staggered to the finish.
