    Exceptional use of language

    I just finished 'gods go begging' by Alfredo Vea and loved it - his use of metaphors and prose closely resembles the way I see the world in my hearts eye. It's a love / murder / war / spiritual story that tears at the heart and mind from cover to cover. 'Here, in this memory, is the click of a heel on pavement, the dissolving ghost of a warm breath against glass, the confidant taste of a man's voice, now the sharp pinch of bamboo grass beneath her naked back, now the wistful shadow of an unknowing last glimpse...graceful, graceless, awkward...suddenly over' ... 'There is shapeless, weightless longing in their capture souls, the last enduring embers from the furious and desperate friction of moistened skins.' and sooooo much more.

    This is one of the best books I've read in a long, long time. Vea does a great job at grabbing my attention with the content of his novel: the characters, the settings, the events. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be amazed.....

    Absolutely the Best

    This novel has a deeply interesting setting for a war book. The best part of all is that it all actually happened to the author. Mr Vea is a mysterious man with a great knack for an inkpen... this is a great book for lawyers, english teachers, high schoolers, army vets, and anyone else...
