    Magical realism combines with social criticism

    This review is for the Spanish version, which I assume this is. It is fine for anyone who has reached an intermediate level of Spanish. Traven's Spanish is pretty good (he may have been helped by his Mexican wife/agent), but it is perfect for someone who is just at the point at which he can begin to understand more complicated sentence structures. All the chapters are short, and the whole novel is only about 90 or 100 pages long. The chance of being bogged down is small. Finally, the story itself has great appeal. It is about a very poor woodcutter with a very large family of children, whose main fantasy is the idea of eating a whole roast turkey by himself, with none of his starving children around to spoil the thrill of being really full for once in his life. Finally, his wife decides to give him his dream fulfilled. But his troubles have only begun. For the rest you will have to read it yourself. I have made it sound comic, but it is not. Very highly recommended for any number of reasons.
