I think I enjoyed the book for all the reasons that other reviewers didn’t. It resists resolution, it perturbs and frustrates, and allows the reader to bask in uncertainty even as it articulates a very clear message about environmental disasters and their very particular and personal impacts. The translation is very good, I’ve read the book in both Spanish and English and the narrator does a great job of conveying the narrative.

This book defys description, I hate a book where when it is over everyone who reads it will have a different idea about what happened. This book I guess was not for me, but I was interested in the fact that it was translated and the author is Argentinian. I suppose there could be cultural differences as to why I don't understand it. I'm not really a fan of magical realism, but I do like stretching my mind by reading books written in other countries in other languages.
