Interesting narration of what had happened in 1492

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author was my favourite character in this book, as he was fair and truthful in presenting the incidents. That period was full of injustice and the catholic monarchs and their armies were horrible to everyone including their own people in Castille. What happened to the minorities in Spain and to the original inhabitants of the Spanish colonies was so upsetting. Even when the author tried to make a point on their behalf it was evidently racist actions by such rulers and their followers.

What about Professor Teofilo F. Ruiz’s performance did you like?

His performance was excellent.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moments that moved me were those about the Spanish inquisitions and those about the enslavement of the original inhabitants of the Latin America.
