This book is short, 124 pages, and a quick read.
I reread the book a few years later, in Spanish, and was able to appreciate, first-hand, the authors skillful, nuanced use of language.
Having recently read the original Spanish version it will be interesting to compare the translation on my next reading of this book.
Rulfo's novel is magical realism at its finest. I have read this novel in translation multiple times, drawing new insights on each reading. Truly brilliant!Published 4 days ago by Rhonda

I read this book because I had read in an article that it was one of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's favorites and that he had memorized the whole book! Read morePublished 3 months ago by Katie Pickard Fawcett
I read it because it's a classic of Mexican literature but I found it aimless and repetitive. It didn't do much for me.Published 5 months ago by JohnK
