really liked it


I love Buenos Aires and I have found some interesting places there from tracking down some of the locations in this book, which is wonderfully evocative of the place and the culture. The fact that it's completely insane (does it count as magical realism? I really don't know) is a significant part of its charm - much like the place and the culture it describes.

Only 4* as if you have no interest in Argentina, I think the book is unlikely to appeal - but you could give it a try. I'd love to be proved wrong.
