really liked it
Recommended for: people who like 'el dia de muerto'
Read in December, 2007

thx Rose. Old men dying in a dead town are cool. Leaf Storm: i wish i knew Spanish better cuz there's a few slang words in the translation. Plus the POV shifts were over used and not really needed/effective. No One Writes to the Colonel: excellent read with a realistic story line and characters, beautifully morose. Chronicle of a Death Foretold: I couldn't believe the whole town including the killers felt murder was an acceptable form of justice for a young boy AND girl doin' it when they were even younger. Reminded me of the self righteousness and ignorance of so many Christians.
