This is a book about relationships and sacrifices with the kidnapping only acting as the background for a portrayal of the disintegration of a marriage and a reassessment of what is important. It is actually a slow moving book which seems to me to be emphasised by the fact that it is written in the present tense. The book concentrates almost exclusively on Andres with very little from Marabela's point of view. Unfortunately I didn't like Andres very much - I thought he was self-absorbed and pompous and so his suffering didn't mean as much to me as it might have. It might have been more effective to alternate his story with that of his wife all the way through the book rather than just at the end.
The question of what you would sacrifice to save a spouse and what effect that the sacrifice would have on you and the freed person in the future is an interesting one. I don't think that it was well examined here and the ending was rather inconclusive. I didn't get a feel for the politics behind the situation. The book concentrates almost exclusively on Andres but it might have been better if the consequences of the kidnapping on others was also part of the story. In the end the book didn't make the best of the storyline and I learned little about Peru as a country. I received a free copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley.
I would recommend this book
