    Before I found this book in a closing down bookshop last month, I have never heard of Carlos Fuentes I blame it on the fact that I have never really paid any attention to any Latin America writers since my childhood But I am really glad that I did know of this intellectual writer now and have bought twobooks of his a few weeks ago.With my recent obsession with everything about Mexico the county, I find this book very interesting and inspiring and enlightening in every chapter, especially Before I found this book in a closing down bookshop last month, I have never heard of Carlos Fuentes I blame it on the fact that I have never really paid any attention to any Latin America writers since my childhood But I am really glad that I did know of this intellectual writer now and have bought twobooks of his a few weeks ago.With my recent obsession with everything about Mexico the county, I find this book very interesting and inspiring and enlightening in every chapter, especially in those involving his critics on Mexican politics One can also see that Carlos Fuentes is a patriot, a romantic poet and a rational thinker His words telling old Mexican tales are intoxicating And the time he wrote this book was almost a score of time ago, one finds it rather ironic that somehow not much have changed since then in terms of diplomatic relationship with the US, the internal political issues, such as freedom of press, drug cartels, wealth gap, education, democracy in general, etc Instead, these problems mentioned seem to get worse for the past decade.It has offered so much food for thought for me and I would really love to continue to keep track of anything about Mexico

    I liked a lot of what this book referenced, even though it was published a long time ago Sadly, I was distracted by multiple editing errors in my copy, which took away from my experience a bit As is usually the case with non fic and myself, I feel I may be too stupid to have gotten everything that this book had to offer, so I have to give it a solid 3 Good material, poor absorption of said material on my part.

    I am finding this book challenging, as there are a great many things and persons referred to that I am unfamiliar with, but Fuentes philosophical musings and and lyrical prose are enjoyable and illuminating Although the book is now dated in my copy it was last updated in 1999 , I picked it up before going to Mexico to supplement my meager knowledge of this place I am glad I did as I work through it.

    This enlightening book tells of Mexico s long history and the problems it is facing I learned that much of Mexico is indigenous, not totally wiped out by the Spanish It has a difficult history with the US because we both plague it and support it Mexico needs a strong democracy, something that has evidence of happening only recently Fuentes is an intellectual writer.
