Publisher's Summary

The protagonist, Jesús, is ugly. Extraordinarily ugly. He is so ugly that his friends and relatives are convinced that behind that ugliness there must be something else. A malefic power or possibly a momentous fate. The truth is that fairly special things happen wherever Jesús is. His biological father is a mystery. His half-sister is a child-prodigy who excels at everything she does, his mother becomes the president of the country, his best-friend Vero is a computer tycoon, his brother-in-law also makes it in politics...But for all the success and money around him he still feels unsettled. Can you be happy if you don't know where you come from?

Easy listen

This was a book following several generations of an interesting family. There were some good themes but the story fell short. It was pretty shallow and the characters were flat and quickly became boring. In the end, I had a story to listen to. Actually mistakenly came upon it while looking for the WWII story by the same name.
