rating: 3 of 5 stars
I got into a reading jag lately and remembered the original "Aztec" by Jennings that I read some years back when I spotted this. It was a "fun" read, no Joyce or Proust, but it had me thinking about that transition of cultures. There is an under tone of irony and regret that is poignant throughout. Basically for all the bloodshed and death it is an upbeat book some how. I feel like I came away from the book understanding how much more complex this cultural transition really was.
