Olga Nunez Miret is an exceptional story-teller of impressive talent. Her story THE MAN WHO NEVER WAS is a magic carpet of brightly-colored and expertly woven threads--transporting readers to the dazzling, dizzying, fast-paced world of political and corporate power. Her characters are amazingly well-drawn, reminding us of all that is both good and bad in humanity. I did not want her story to end--but the good news is that Olga Nunez Miret has many other projects underway! I am already in line and I have no doubt that you will want to join me! Thank you, Olga!!! --Chery Coppenrath

Have you ever wondered about the back-stories of celebrities? Politicians? Business magnates? Do you feel a snippet of complacency when finding out that for all their wealth, power and success, in reality, their personal lives are not up to par? If you’re like most of us, Olga Núñez Miret’s fascinating “The Man Who Never Was” is the right saga for you.

The book starts out with the beautiful, headstrong Angelina ignoring all societal norms by having her baby Jesús out of wedlock, a baby who “was small, thin, very dark, and covered in black hair like a tiny werewolf”. Soon, much like a true allegorical story, each introduced character, to me, represents iconic personalities:

Angelina=vain ambition; Jesús=guileless kindness; Stephie=prodigious clairvoyance; Senén=neglectful mediocracy; Don=nasty rigidity; Vero=veracious enterprise, etc., just to name just a few.

Meanwhile, as ambition abounds, the jockeying and manipulation that consumes this family is palpable and, at the same time, definitely triggers a fast page turn. Most of the family members, through their business acumen, achieve monetary success and celebrity status easily; however, their happiness quotient is quite another story. Perhaps that’s the most revealing life lesson of all: that like Icarus, striving only for glory can often end in downfall. A recommended read, indeed!

Writing was so bad I thought it would have some other redeeming feature! Also was trapped on a plane with nothing else. This could have used an editor but, even so, it isn't worth even a look.

I'm not sure what kind of story I expected... but this novel kept me interested and intrigued throughout. It will make you think.
