If the devil exists, he is personified in the protagonist of La Fiesta del Chivo, by Mario Vargas Llosa. Based on the last days and the assassination of one of the most tyrannical and bloodthirsty dictators of Latin America, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. The author recounts the story of Urania Cabral, a woman who fled from Trujillo's regime in the Dominican Republic as a young child and returns to confront a terrifying past. A passionate story combining anger and bewilderment. It is almost unthinkable to accept the brutal happenings as real; it is easier to believe that they were only possible in the mind of the author.

4.0 The Feast of the Goat
A really good and beautiful book. That is as beautiful as a book can be that is filled with murder, torture and rape. The sliding between different viewpoints and times is done expertly. The prose style which varies, but is written in machine gun bursts took me awhile to adjust to, but once I did...

This magnificent little book is page-turner. It is a plot driven work that analyzes the rule and the assassination (and the consequences thereof) of Rafael Trujillo, the dictator of the Dominican Republic from 1930-1961. The book has an unlikely hero (to reveal the name here would constitute a ‘spo...
