    Ilustrado opens with Crispin Salvador, lion of Philippine letters, dead in the Hudson River. His young acolyte, Miguel, sets out to investigate the author's suspicious death and the strange disappearance of an unfinished manuscript---a work that had been planned not just to return the once-great author to fame but to expose the corruption behind the rich families who have ruled the Philippines for generations.

    Overall

    My in-laws are Filipino, so I was looking forward to some insights on the history and culture of the Phillipines. The shifting narrative mode of the book makes the translation to audio difficult at times: a joke, a passage from a pulp novel, excerpts from a message board complete with email addresses. I ultimately enjoyed it, but it may not be for everyone.
