I've read my share of Latin American history, with a bit of literature on top. This book just doesn't do it for me. I really really respect what Galeano was trying to do, but it doesn't work. Despite what his complaints about historical writing, I don't think he really changed anything. Memory of Fire just seems like a combination of bad history and literature because he tried to make the former into the latter.

No me entiendes mal . . . respeto mucho la ambigüedad moral que a Galeano intenta comunicar, y respeto mucho la tema indigenista, pero la manera en que la lleva en esta libro no me conmueva.
