Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on November 26, 2014
The book has its virtues - the Spanish characters are quite well sketched, the narrator's character and motivations and behavior are quite believable, and the "poetic" passages are effective. The main problem for me is that the narrator is such an unappealing character - really hard to stomach. I found it hard to keep going. I know it isn't a fair reason for downgrading the book; I suppose I am rating my enjoyment of it rather than my judgement of its artistic merits.
