The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch
 
Interesting, Dramatic, Adventurous
Thumbs Down for The Hangman's Daughter

This is a simple read, as long as one can stomach torture scenes. However, because it is written in contemporary language, it doesn't create any atmosphere whatsoever; it's more like watching a cheaply made, black-and-white movie from the 30's. Additionally, this book has the longest denouement on record; I found myself wondering if it would ever end. There are so many well-written books out there that I found this one a waste of time.

Dreaming in Cuban

This book reads like several long poems about three generations of women impacted by the changed social and political situation in Cuba: those who stay vs. those who leave, the decent into madness, and hope for future reconciliation.
