It was a very very well written book and interesting. I'm a five year Spanish student, and I had to look up the Spanish words I didn't recognize sometimes, so if you don't know Spanish at all, the beauty of the writing might be lost on you a little bit. It is full of footnotes to educate you along the way about some of the history of the Dominican Republic. It was slow to get into, but once it picked up it was a very good read.
