I really liked this book and finished in one day. I like that a lot of Mexican terms are used as this makes the reader feel the setting more. It’s a dark book about gangs, crossing to Mexico, drugs and betting. I liked how when Arturo was playing calavera (a card game) he had more than enough to give to his friend Faustino who needed to pay a gang his debts, but his greed kept him going. Just one thing that the author left unclear was whether the baby was Faustino's or Arturo's.
The book was quite potent but very somber and probably realistic about life in Mexico.
It is my favourite so far out of the 4 books I’ve read.
