i read this book to fulfil the goal read a book that was written by an author from aisa, africa or south america. (it is also on the 300 books everyone should read at least once challenge on listopia) at first i wasn't sure i liked it. it reads like someone's geneology with the same names used over multiple generations. i'm still not sure when one of the characters actually died. they were there and then they weren't like i skipped a page but couldn't be bothered to go back an reread. the ending was good though. it finally made sence sort of. i'm glad i read it once. will be happy to never read it again.
