This is a wonderful book exploring the world of bullfighting and the moral issues both for and against the art. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning about how it works, or anyway who has read Hemingway's books about it.

However, the narrator is awful. For some reason, he seems to be doing an impression of William Shatner throughout the book, pausing at strange times and making every sentence seem like the dramatic climax. Because of that, you often get distracted from what the author is trying to say.
