Not interesting to children
Reviewed in the United States on February 23, 2011
This seems like a book that would only be appreciated by adults. I can see it being used as a teaching tool for children in the classroom or as a resource for children when writing a book report, but not as leisure reading. The book also seems to have a bit of an identity crisis: Is it a poetry book? Is it non-fiction? Is it biography? At times the language is lovely and poetic and at other times it is not lyrical. I also found a few grammatical problems with the Spanish. I wanted to like this book especially since it was recently recognized, and as an adult reader there are things I did like, but I don't see how it would appeal to children.
