Brings Cuba to life on every page, 11 Nov. 2012
I bought this book specifically to read on my second trip to Havana and was not disappointed. The sights, smells, sounds and feel of Cuba jump off every page. Set around the late 80's early 90's it highlights that for many in Cuba life has not changed a great deal. To read this book in Havana was a little surreal, set in places I passed every day, describing the reality of Cuban life it was easy to become absorbed into the story to the point that I forgot it was a story.
