I probably would have liked this more had I read Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love first, though I'm guessing they can each stand on their own.

Dawn I don't know Kalen. I'm not a big fan of "The Mambo Kings ..." either.

Kalen That's good to know.... This didn't strike me as being as BIG as I thought it would be. Pulitzer winner and all that.

Dawn It's been awhile but I just remember that once I finished "The Mambo Kings..." I had an overwhelming feeling of fatigue and depression. And none of that "whoa - that was an emotional rollercoaster, but worth it" feeling. Just depression.
