The writing, the characters were thin and I skimmed like crazy to see if they escaped intact. It was intense but I felt I was hovering outside the story, not part of it possibly for the reasons mentioned in the controversy, but probably because of the writing. Bizarre premise: the poetry-writing drug lord falls for the bookseller and then murders her family. As a former bookseller, nothing even comes close to this scenario.

Did not care for...

... this book at all. It wasn't the worst book I ever read and it was food enough to read through, however, with all the Spanish words, it made it even more difficult. Not sure I'll read from this author again.
