    Paperback ✓ Mexico Epub Ø mexico pdf, Mexico ePUB Mexico by James Michener is a sweeping saga of the colorful and often tumultuous history of Mexico and its people This takes place in the fictional city of Toledo Mexico where Norman Clay an American journalist comes to explore his Spanish roots as well as to report on its Festival of Ixmi 61 and its bullfights pitting two celebrated matadors in a decisive duel; the Spaniard Victoriano executing dramatic arabesues versus Juan Gomez the relentless little Indian Clay reports that it is appropriate therefore that our protagonists should represent almost ideally the two historic strains of Mexican history the ancient Indian the recent Spanish Where the cactus and maguey meet my heart is entwined in the tangle of Mexico It was as if Mexico were divided into two nations the Indians who worked the fields and the markets and the Spanish who ruled from the halls of government Many spectators reviewing in their minds what they had seen that afternoon must have concluded there

    Paperback ✓ Mexico Epub Ø mexico pdf, Mexico ePUBOK I finished this blasted book I'm giving it 4 stars out of deference to Michener who was a good man and a than respectable story teller and he gave several million dollars to UT AustinBut this book was too ## long dammit Where are the editors In fact toward the end I started noting repetitive passages where I would have cut out the fat I started reading objectively like an editor and that's not a good signIt's a shame because there's a lot of good here too and I learned something about Mexico and a shit ton about bullfighting which is of dubious merit at this point in history I don't see the honor in killing bulls for sport but then it is a sport and a part of history so I tried to read with that in mind The environmentalist in me was disappointed that they don't at least eat the meat; maybe they did in some cases it was unclearThe historical vignettes were uite interesting I say uite interesting instead of fascinating because again it bogs down in so many places An

    Paperback ✓ Mexico Epub Ø mexico pdf, Mexico ePUBDespite my affection for Michener I have to say I was disappointed in this book It has the wrong title is too long and he fictionalized in areas where I felt truth would have made it a stronger novelAs I noted in my review of his My Lost Mexico I don’t know how or why I neglected this book in the past In My Lost Mexico Michener explains how he began the novel abandoned it for 30 years and then returned to write what became another of his bestsellers I don’t think the end result was the book he originally intended and it probably became a bestseller on the basis of his popularity rather than the novel’s meritsDon’t misunderstand the book does have merit The characters—especially Norman Clay Leon Ledesma Mrs Evans Victoriano
