I planned to read this book last Christmas, but I didn’t get the chance, so it is now that I’m going to read it.
The stories in these book are very personal, and naturally we get to learn some facts about the Spanish Civil War.
The third story is about Juan Senra, who trying to keep living and avoid death he feeds a colonel and his wife a string of lies about his son, who he met in jail.
Publishing year: 2004
There is a major film based on this book, and I was looking forward to reading it.
This is another book about New Zealand, a country I didn’t know much about, but I’m loving it more and more as I get to know things about it in the books set in the country. It’s such a pity that New Zealand is so far away, because I’d love to travel there.
Wow. What a book!!! This morning I couldn’t put it down.
