As Tony follows his own path toward adulthood, he relies on the wisdom of Ultima, a magical healer, to forge his unique identity. With hundreds of thousands of copies in print, Bless Me, Ultima has been called the most widely read Mexican-American novel in the English language. Richly evocative, it has earned its place among the classics of modern literature, even drawing favorable comparisons to Herman Melville's legendary Moby Dick.

I had to read this for an assignment. I finished the assignment before I finished the audiobook, and I went back to finish the book. I absolutely loved this. I'm glad to have had the chance to visit the world of Antonio Marez and to understand the trials he has gone through to become a man.
