really liked it
bookshelves: first-reads
Read from September 04 to 27, 2012

I have exiled myself before and this book is a great story of what it is like to live in that manner. T.M. Spooner really creates a portrait with is words, that is somewhat falling short because at times you can really feel the emotions that the characters are going through and the impact that they cause on each other. I am not saying that it is an "emotional" book, just that it is written well with great word choice.

I started this book right before going back to my college classes, so it took me a while to find the time to finish, I was able to maintain what was happening throughout the breaks and if any has done this with other novels, then you know sometimes if a book doesn't have that certain quality to it it is hard to pick back up.

This book is great and rich in culture and detail. Set in Mexico, not tourist Mexico, I felt as though I was there and I have never experienced non-tourist Mexico. I recommend this book to any who feel like taking a trip through a good story.

I would like to thank goodreads and T.M. Spooner for the opportunity to read this book.
