Terrible Narration

This narrator spent no time at all learning how to pronounce names and place names in Spain. It would have taken little effort to honor the book’s author and its subject to learn how to pronounce these names in a way that was, at least, an approximation of their real pronunciation. It appears he didn’t spend a second doing that. His narration was dry, lacked any color, and combined with his lack of attention to the text’s requirement that he offer the listener even a partial version of Spanish place names, made this book impossible to endure. So, I didn’t. I got out as soon as I could.

Where are they now

I find the movie is fascinating. If they were such a learning people, why were they banished to begin with. It’s obvious they were interested in acclamation rather utter domination. Between one group ,tribe, clan or another this is still happening today in the 21st-century

Good review and context of events

The middle couple chapters were a challenge to maintain attention to, but overall the informant throughout the book was well explained and interesting.
