This book is incredibly well written, and magic realism is one of my favourite genres. I've been meaning to read this since I was about 15, and I'm very pleased I have now achieved that goal! As far as the story goes though, I have to say I found it somewhat more depressing than other books in the same vein - Isabelle Allende's House of the Spirits, for example - which deal with just as dark and violent subjects, but somehow retain a sense of lightness in a way I personally prefer.
