Sort of interesting but far too many Spanish colloquialisms used without translation so you sort of miss the inferences.. I guess if I was a teen or appreciated ghetto life more it would have been a better read.

Though I didn't read the edition indicated above--it was a 344-page paperback/softcover edition borrowed from my local library--I thought that Paul Theroux's 1975 travelogue debut was very interesting, at times hilarious and quite insightful. His chronicle of his four-month rail odyssey in late 1973 through the world's largest continent includes many destinations and experiences that one probably won't find in travel brochures. Each of the book's thirty chapters carries as its title one of the trains and destinations he rode, and he peppers the book with stories and his impressions of the people he met, and the food he ate, along the way. I was amazed that such a mammoth undertaking--some 15,000 miles (about 24,000 kilometers) on thirty-one trains--was even possible.

Excellent Heinlein: exploring future cultural changes, especially nontraditional families, with multiple husbands and wives, but more traditional male/female rolls. "Men were men, and women were women" .

But the star of the story is Mark, the giant self aware computer, discovered by the hero when Mark starts to develop a sense of humor and asks our hero to teach it what a joke is, the nature of humor.
