“The colonel took the top off the coffee can and saw that there was only one little spoonful left .
What a beautiful start of a novel . It catches you from the moment you open the book. This book is about poverty and daily life and hope. Also surviving with sadness . It is lyrical ,magical language .
I wanted to read Gabriel Garcia Marquez”s book after his recent death . I read two of his books in the past. But this one is highly recommended to me by three Colombians who themselves are in to writing and reading. All I could say is wonderful. Sad and hpynotic.
