One of the most surprising, original and beautifully written books I have ever read, somewhere between history and poetry. I love this book and it has invariably deeply affected and surprised everyone I have recommended it to. Read this book!

If you are interested in Latin America you need to read all his books related to the history of a contienent. You cry, you laugh, you get angry. He manages to move you.

Kind of like Twitter, I don't get it. This book is a collection of Mesoamerican Indian creation myths that sound childish and silly now. Couldn't finish it. Don't know what the big deal was.
