The Martian, by Andy Weir

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Overall I liked the book. It was daunting at times to decipher the technical aspect of the prose as I am not a techkie nor do I particularly like scholarly jargon such as chemistry and botany etc. But the story was sound and gripping and kept you reading. The writing is OK, not my favorite style. The movie was more enjoyable. One of those rare times that the visual was better than the written. I mean it took ten minutes in the movie to show the growing of potatoes what he takes to do for almost two hours of reading in the book!

Book Review--The Mambo Kings, by Oscar Hijuelos

The Mambo Kings Play Songs of LoveThe Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love by Oscar Hijuelos
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of my top five books ever read. Perhaps because I'm Cuban I feel this book hit a nerve of what it is to be Cuban. The family experience, the music, the love and passion. This novel has it all and is extremely well written as well. Pulitzer Prize award was right on the money.
