The One on Currently Reading
Yesterday I introduced the Nobel laureate whose work I will be reading first.
Today I introduce the work that I will be reading. The War of the End of the World by Mario Vargas Llosa.
A few months ago I read The Bad Girl and thoroughly enjoyed it, however, it was not quite a great book, but rather, an exciting light read. My father is an avid fan of Vargas Llosa, and he recommended this one to me.
I will be updating on my progress as I go. :)
P.S. Yes, I'm taking advantage of my fluency in Spanish to read the book in its natal language. Which, of course, is the ideal path. You lose so much in translation.
