No, but it came close
I loved the latin and the links between the past, his life and where we are today. I really am seeing how we got from there to here.
There were several instances that were poignant and moving. When his head was cut of and boiled, had me in tears. I was also moved by the death of his first wife, his imprisonment and his service to the poor.
I could listen to this book again and again and learn something every time!
It shows that love is worth waiting for. It is interesting that being from the Caribbean, I was able to understand some of the prejudices in the book. The stereo types that existed are ever present in that part of the world today.
The Trip on the river boat! I had a vivid image of the mosquitoes and the oppressive heat with no AC!
I love the fact that he read with an accent. It added the right flavor and atmosphere to evoke the feeling that was created in the characters in the book.
No, no extreme reactions, although there were sad moments.
Old age is sad but in this story is was romantic!
Yes, I would change some of the reading style.
Yes. He added accents to different people and between the various characters.
No. Too depressing.
A lot of what was in the book was familiar to me. Some of it was drawn from biblical prophesy. There was some conjecture and I guess that is why it is a fictional tale.
