This is a superbly narrated account of the time in which Hugo Chavez governed in Venezuela. Rory Carroll writes with a captivating style that makes it difficult to put the book down. He approaches the topic as an observer of power rather than the typical admirer or detractor of the cult of personality. He shares well researched and meticulously gathered insights that paint a vivid picture of the folly that governed the so called revolution.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
