    "Was recommended by a friend to get Who Killed Palomino Molero since it was written by Mario Vargas Llosa. Although I was a bit skeptical, I enjoyed every last bit of it and wanted more. Truly an astounding book by Mario and his writing in which he portray the big and powerful are always willing to cover things up when a murder happen. The main characters were well written in which a sense of honor/justice were embedded into them when seeking out who was the murderer and their persistent in finding the answer even though a chain of command tell them to not too. Would highly recommend this book."

    "Bought The Language of Passion as part of my effort to read more fiction. I've read a few books by Mario Vargas Llosa before, and can honestly say this collection of his essays is definitely not his best work."

    "This is one of the older books I have read lately. It is about the divide between savagery and civilization. I had never heard of Mario Llosa before this book, but I am glad I discovered the author. This book is very long at 416 pages, but it is a great read. I saw someone called it a masterpiece and I would venture to agree."
