Mesmerizing

Maybe because I'm a beginning flamenca, but I loved this book, word-for-word. Yes, the plot is romantic, but the real love affair is between dancers and their dance. The narrator is brilliant, channeling the eternal heartbreak of the gypsies through the losses, thwarted loves and difficult friendship of the principal character. I do not think this book would have been as good if I had read it, rather than "heard" it!

Captivating

The beginning was slow, and felt like it took too long to set the up the characters, but after the intial staging, I could not stop listening to this book. I was captivated by the hypnotic way she pronounced the names, the places the flamenco. It made me want to research the dance, the places she mentioned and the history of the Gypsy. I was transported back and could hear the guitar the clicking of the shoes and the wailing of poet. I was constantly amazed at the twists and turns as the characters developed matured. I am a romantic, and this book certainly fulfilled my high expectations.
