I found the imagery of Soto's work pulling me in, the narration by Ramirez top-notch. . . but that's about it. Chuy's learning in the afterlife (the narrator dies in the story), to me, felt self-absorbed and forced. I did want to like this more and it's a solid story, but I felt Soto's story was over-the-top and trying to impress because he told this frmo a point-of-view he's not yet known--or maybe has, but told frmo another account.
I did want to like this more, but it just left me slightly depressed in a manner I didn't come away learning a lesson. Chuy learned his after he passed. . . and found love in an unusual manner. Soto did one gaffe most writers shouldn't have: permitting the love interest to know one another after they'd pased, but that could be the twist that didn't work for me.
