I would recommend this book to all of you out there cause, if not all, there is at least one emotion and one character in there who all of us can relate to!
Looking forward to G.D.Leon's next book!
Many of the towns have something in common — manufacturing jobs moving overseas or to cheaper, more rural, areas.
It's a very pointy and emotional story describing people's life, hope but also anger.
When you start reading u will recognize that you u become Ruben the main character in the book. You will feel his hope, his happiness but also the anger he is going through.
G. D. Leon's characters jump off the page, each with their own flaws so they seemed highly realistic. As a main character, Ruben is well-rounded and believable. I loved the bildungsroman feel this book has as we're shown how Ruben's character develops as he grows up.
I haven't read many other books (if any) that are set in Argentina, and the way Leon describes the setting felt authentic and real.
The economic threatens that drives the story is so realistic that made me remind of my younger days in Brazil (who lived a very similar situation) as well as the militar dictatorship that enlightened the background.
I highly recommend this book if you are looking for some nice reading with a good dose of reality mixed with passionate feelings that drives Ruben in his lifetime adventure.
