  1. This was a book club choice and I bought it on Kindle and started it yesterday in hopes of finishing it in the next ten days, before my book club meeting Imagine my surprise when I finished it in less than an hour and twenty minutes It was OK but nowhere near worth the purchase price for such a small collection of very short stories Interesting concept that could have been successful Most of the characters leave you wishing they were further developed Some are better than others The story about [...]


  2. I hoped this book would offer a glimpse into Mexican culture and daily life And it certainly does It s laced with casual little references likely to give locals a wry smile and make expats nostgalic, all while hinting to the unfamiliar like myself of a richness that s worth investigating.But what struck me the most about this novel wasn t all the little things that were there, but the big thing that wasn t This big event that was at the heart of everything but only obliquely addressed Examined a [...]


  3. Ruiz Camacho has a way of writing about ugly topics by bringing them into the foreground A prime example is the two separate scenes in his novel where women are urinated on The first one involves a wealthy Mexican lady who has just been taken for a joyride around the city by three thugs who make her withdraw vast sums of her money with her credit card at the ATMs When they discover that she s maxed out and can t withdraw any money, they took turns raping her then threw her out on the street One [...]


  4. I ran across this book while looking for something to read on The description grabbed me and I knew I had to read it My husband was transferred to DF Mexico in 2008 and we lived there for four years During that time, we fell in love with the lifestyle and the people but were terrified that one of us would be kidnapped We had to learn how to minimize the possibilities but it felt like only good luck was guiding us This book is important because it shows how the seemingly well off in Mexico are pr [...]


  5. It seems as if it is a series of short stories and it is but actually is the story of one family, which becomes clear at the end, of course Ruiz Camacho masters a variety of voices and perspectives that kept me entertained and intrigued throughout It does not have the epic sweep of One Hundred Years of Solitude nor of The Milagro Beanfield War, but it is a deft work of storytelling in a rather novel way.


  6. Promising debut by the Mexican born author I think a good analogy of this book is how a chef might deconstruct a known dish in his case grief and tragedy and present it through its unique elements this case a family each playing a roll The main topic is the kidnapping of a families patriarch and how the remaining life s are impacted.I appreciate that the writing felt unapologetic throughout the stories without ever landing on pretentious, the characters are there to tell you their stories but ar [...]
