I'm jealous. How long was the event? How does the book seem? I'd love to see a picture. Please post.
She may not be great but obvisously she must me a decent writer to attain the level of popularity that she has. I'm not totally disagreeing with you, although I love to read I don't read all that mushy stuff either (the ladies seem to like it) but I do feel proud of the fact that she's of Dominican descent and I feel we should at least give her our support and it can only help motivate other up and coming young talent. "In the time of the Butterflies" also helped bring to light a very crucial point in our history and I'm thankful to her for that.she is not that good. All her books are about the same thing... she is only famous because she is the only alright Dominican writer... (besides the one hit wonder of Junot Diaz) but the thing is that in all her books she tries to get as far from being Dominican as possible... she protagonist is always of European decent and the antagonist are always your run of the mill mulato Dominican... It's disgusting.
