    "No one but Marquez can quite capture the psyche of any person struggling with his/her inner demons, be it a peasant, an escort, or a leader of a nation, he brings us deep into the minds of his characters, especially in this book. "

    "Not sure what I was expecting when I purchased this. Found it and bought it for the wife as she usually enjoys corny things like this. Took a read myself and it is just painful. Mindless and hollow writing. Not worth the paper it was written on. Don't waste your time on this."
