it was ok

This book is really poorly written and hard to read which is likely going to keep me from making it beyond the halfway point. I would like to read some in the original Spanish to see if some of the problem is the translation. however as of right now I lump it in the cult novel category of having rabid fans that stick to poorly written books mostly because of the lifestyle portrayed in the book, attributing all sorts of literary significance to the book that isn't justified.
