Carmen Aguirre has obviously lived a fascinating life, but despite that this book was not particularly engaging. Having spent most of her life having to keep secrets and pretend to be someone she wasn't, it must have been very cathartic to get it all out. Unfortunately it also makes the book feel a bit more like a blurt than a tale.

There are just too many people and places (dozens of both) to get a clear picture of or feel for any of them. Even Ale, her sister, remains a bit of an enigma. I can understand not wanting to tell someone else's story, but she is the one consistant person in her life and I came away with no sense of her whatsoever.
