El Leopardo al solI can t believe finished this book maybe Artscroll Children's Siddur it was a bad translation but the writing was bad and the techniue of don t know modern day greek chorus that she used was unbearable am n colombia and read Iron Cross it for a book group and everyone agreed skipt A decent read but it didn t Zachary's Virgin impress me as much as I hopedt would Am trying to read another book n didn t mpress me as much as I hoped t would Am trying to read another book n only my three jobs keep getting Torah With Ramban's Commentary Translated, Annotated, And Elucidated: Devarim/Deuteronomy (Artscroll) in the way I lovet though I often get distracted wondering f t reads like literature or like People magazine Leopard n the Sun was a real treat and I think magic realist fiction enthusiasts will enjoy t After reading the first sentence on the dust jacket I couldn t wait to devour this one Imagine the Sicilian history of The Godfather rewritten by Gabriel Garcia Maruez or West Side Story reinterpreted by Isabel Allende and you have a sense of Laura Restrepo s unforgettable novel of the making of Colombia s drug cartels I couldn t have said t better myself Likewise since Gabriel Garcia Maruez s my favorite author and was once followed closely n that lineup by Isabel Allende before her two most recent weak novels were published I am happy to report that this book does deliver what t promises I did however find the Time Capsule interspersed hearsay sections of the storyn Hot Under the Collar italics a bit frustrating For me theynterrupted the flow of the narrative and Horses interfered with the effect of enchantment the whole reason I read and love magic realist fiction However I understand what Restrepo was going for because theres always than one explanation for the magical and strange happenings Goblin King in good magic realist fiction and these sections tend to show the warring Barragans and the Monsalves almost as folk heros or villains to the townspeople who make up these choruses of praise or condemnation but I still thought this was a bit forced Nonetheless this novel was delightfuln The Luthier's Apprentice its strange beauty heartbreak and humor that at times had me laughing raucously out loud What I wonders why Factories in the Field: The Story of Migratory Farm Labor in California it wasn t better publicized to magic realist readers not just the Spanish speaking ones It was first publishedn 1999 but I had heard nothing about t until recently and that was by accidentally stumbling upon t here on Goodreads Restrepo s Leopard n the Sun was everything
