Rayroy Would you call this a work of Magic Realism? So far I haven't gotten into it but I am going to try.

Yes, I guess that I would. I did not realize this before I began reading it 2 weeks ago.

There are a number of other things that surprised me, some that I liked and others less so. I will be posting a review in a few days.

Rayroy I enjoyed your review more then the book. If there wasn't so much of the fansty you mentioned I think I might of enjoyed the book.

I really did not see the value of the fantasy element.

El Great review. I was unable to get a copy of this before we meet tonight, but I still plan on reading it at some point.

Rayroy I realized that while this may of been a good book, that magical realism and I don't get along. I should of made more of an effort to finished it.

Rayroy The fantasy was there because well that's magical realism for you. Another book I am reading had Native American folklore in it , but the it's separate from the story and what the characters experience, aside from listening to story telling tell it. Should be good discussion tonight, a topic, where does fantasy belong and how to place it in a contemporary or realist narrative.
