I LIKE READING ZOE VALDES SHE'S VERY CRUDE AND BLUNT BUT VERY REAL.
I ADMIRE HER GUTS FOR WRITING THIS BOOK AND SINCE I WAS BORN IN 1937 AND THE FIFTIES WERE MY SWINGING YEARS IN CUBA I REMEMBER A LOT OF PEOPLE SHE MENTIONS, AND I AM IN COMPLETE ACCORD WITH HER ABOUT BATISTA IF HE WAS SOOOOOO BAD HOW COME FIDEL IS STILL ALIVE ?????
IM ENJOYING READING THE BOOK AND IM GOING VERY SLOW SO I CAN MARK THE PASSAGES THAT CONFIRM WHAT SHE SAYS.MY FAMILY TOO WAS SEPARATED AND I WASNT WIYH MY FATHER WHEN HE DIED. THANK GOD I COULD STAY WITH MY MOTHER WHEN SHE WAS CALLED BY THE LORD
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE ON READING THIS BOOK
SINCERELY

HASH(0x9e207de0) out of 5 stars Zoe Valdes ia an excellent writer and the book reflects very well what happened ... 3 Feb. 2015
By Humberto Vinas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Zoe Valdes ia an excellent writer and the book reflects very well what happened in Cuba after Fidel Castro took over the country. Because she was born after the Cuba before Castro some of the details of that period are a little bid wrong in the book but generally she really expose the despicable regime of the Castro brothers.

HASH(0x9e3758e8) out of 5 stars Castro & Castro S.L. 2 May 2012
By Oscar L. Vazquez - Published on Amazon.com
Esta obra, nada parecida a las novelas que la escritora nos tiene acostumbrados, no solo abarca la figura de Fidel Castro Ruz (1926- ) al que Valdés cataloga como un hombre carismática, encantador de masas, megalómano, manipulador y demagogo consumado entre otros epítetos sino que además va tocando temas sobre la historia general y particular de la Cuba no oficial, la comparación de que era Cuba antes y después de su llegada al poder en 1959, la condescendencia de la comunidad internacional frente a la violación de los derechos humanos en la isla, el vacío y boicot a la intelectualidad en el exilio, la represión, encarcelamiento, tortura y ejecuciones de los disidentes políticos e intelectuales haciendo una mención a la resistencia pasiva de las Damas de Blanco además de comentar el destino de las generaciones de cubanos perdidos por el engaño, la manipulación informativa e ideológica entre otros temas.
Un libro escrito desde la tristeza, el dolor, la desesperación y la rabia mal disimulada que construida a golpe de entrevistas, bibliografía, memoria colectiva y propias experiencias es una denuncia clara y abierta a la dictadura que lleva rigiendo el destino de Cuba por más de cincuenta años sin cambios aparentes y un aviso de alerta tanto a la derecha como a la izquierda política e intelectual internacional de salón y tarjetas de crédito que callan y miran a otro lado a conveniencia sin importarle en lo mas mínimo las represiones del régimen castrista.
