it was ok
bookshelves: fiction, historical-fiction, abandoned

Just didn't do anything for me. I last about 3 CDs worth but reading about "the most beautiful girl in the world", and the dozens of ways to say that, just got plain tiring. She wasn't really all that interesting as a main character -just a blank slate. And while the seedy underworld of Havana was well described, everyone seems to be a lout. I just moved on.
