Gritty and compelling but that ending was too much.

Great opening shown in photo

Book 2 of the memory of fire I enjoyed this one even more than the first the way the stories weave together is magical I love this different perspective on western history.

I listened to this entire #audiobook over the weekend. The writing is descriptive and beautiful, making it easy to visualize the events. I appreciated the message of the story and how it was shared with the reader between the lines of what was actually said by the narrator. However, I like a story with more of a plot, and I‘m not sure this book will stick with me over time.

Genesis | Eduardo Galeano

As I hate short stories I wasn‘t expecting to enjoy this book but it turned out to be an unexpected delight.

The book uses vignettes to show the evolution of Latin American from the legends of the First Nations to the thoughts of the invaders looking for slaves and gold.

A welcome counterpoint to the Eurocentric history I was taught. Galeano gives a voice to those who are not usually heard.

Liz_M @BarbaraBB Yes, it is! 1mo
BarbaraBB @Liz_M Thanks! You‘re reading these as well, aren‘t you? It is good to know it‘s enjoyable! 1mo

Not a bad little book it manages to avoid being preachy but the storylines are a little far fetched.

This was a fun listen. I don‘t tend to read or listen to mysteries very often, but I always enjoy those by Agatha Christie when I do.

Daisey @Gezemice @Tanisha_A I've only listened to this and The Orient Express. I think I liked that one just a little more. I need to read some more! 2mo
RaeLovesToRead I love this book and I didn't realise that Hastings narrates the audiobook - awesome! 2mo
