Wonderful story, full of wit, humor, and occasional spicy passages. Superb narration.

The novel is one of Mexico's most important of the 20th Century. If you are familiar with the many Latin American pieces about history's great characters-- caudillos, generales, coroneles-- in books like "Los de abajo" and "La muerte de Artemio Cruz," this one reads like a feminist response told from the perspective of the wife of an aspiring post-Mexican-Revolution political figure. The novel has an engaging, easy-to-follow style. Plus the narration in this audiobook is, in my opinion, great. I listened to this one completely in one great unproductive day. Finally, I suggest you get this and then watch the movie of the same name. I understand that it was Mexico's most expensive production and a roaring success. I'm not a fan of these types of novels, but after having read, listened, and watched it, I definitely think that it is worth a (re)visit.
