it lacks the beautiful lyricism of his other writings,ggm paints a very complex picture of a hero,its well crafted but it shows how hard it is to weave a narrative out of a political story,he tries really hard to extract the character from the idol but i believe the only message drawn out from the novel is that bolivars shadow still looms large over south america,nevertheless its an inspiring homage to the idealism of bolivar yet ggm still points to the drawbacks,obstacles and mishaps of a dream,the dream of south america.
