Book arrived after the class finish using it!! Nov 24, 2007
Very disappointed to wait for this book after the class finish discussing it!! So I had to return it and got deducted about $3 for shipping fee..
Fascinating history, excellently written Oct 27, 2000
Fortunately my Spanish is competent enough to have read this in the original. I might otherwise not have as much enjoyed the full yet controlled prose had I read the work in doubtless sincere translation. The fascinating theme of the Haitian revolution,Henri-Christophe and the Fortress Sans Souci, is complemented by evocative characterizations and colourful, well-balanced sentences without the purplish tendencies I had noticed in the other book of Carpentier's ("El Siglo de las Luces")that I had read.For anyone wishing to sample Spanish excellently written, I would recommend this work.
