Customer Review

on 5 June 2003
The Feast of the Goat is a thriller in the best sense of the word. It is utterly engaging, a tale of a dictator who dominates his people yet cannot control his bladder. The central character of Trujillo shows how absolute power corrupts absolutly. Llosa describes how one man can come to dominate a whole nation and its people through fear and intimidation, a web of corruption and guilt that renders those around him incapable of breaking from their master's spell. Llosa also shows the fall of a dictator also brings its own problems and how events can cast shadows that linger long after the evnt is over and forgotten by most.
Overall, a superd read, I'd recommend it to all.
