Wish I could give 3.5 or 3.75... Enjoyable, particularly for its elements of magic realism. I loved how (amongst other more fantastic things--) large tame jaguars could roam the streets alongside more 'real' elements of a late 20th century story. Many witty bits, some laugh aloud funny. But, I enjoyed the first half much more than the second... it started to lose it's charm and humour a bit. But, overall a good story with a clear moral perspective.
