Havana Real is a collection of blog posts by Yoani Sanchez. Yoani currently lives in Cuba where she posts on her day to day life there. Since internet restrictions are so tight, just her ability to post at all is a major achievement. Since the blog posts occur over a few years, each post is detached from the post before it. Each post can be taken on its own. The book was an eye-opener for me since I had no real knowledge about the plight of Cubans. Her posts are raw and real. There is little to no editing for the book format, so little of her emotion put into each post is lost. Overall, I enjoyed the book and found it to be a quick read.

William S. Sounds most intriguing. I went to Havana with my Florida high school class many, many years ago. This might be a way to update those impressions. Cuba will open up soon, I'm sure.
