Miss Perry, Coleridge Book Fiends

Saint Death

'Saint Death' is a fast-paced book about life in a brutal and violent world. There is a detail in the first scene of the book that I recalled when I was nearly at the end of the book and the same detail occured again. It was used to show just how merciless the society that Arturo and Faustino live in is - and it really brought this home. Nobody can escape the violence and this helps us to understand why the characters in the book make the choices they do and take the risks they do. It also helps us to understand just how brave it is for Arturo to make the decision he does in the end. This is a book which leaves the reader with a lot of questions. And there are no simple answers.
