    2. If you want to experience a sampling of some of the greatest Latin American authors out there, then you ll want to read this book The Frog s Mouth, though not the best story, is the one that I remember still after reading it almost 15 years ago The book was an assigned reading from a Christian University that I attended, but the book proved to be a worthwile and entertaining read What a treat mb

    3. If you want to experience Latin American culture, then this book is for you I bought it because it was required for a Latin American Literature I was taking, ended up LOVING it The Circular Ruins by Jorge Lu s Burgos, Toads Mouth by Isabel Allende and The Gift by Rosario Ferr are just some that stick out in my mind Wonderful, wonderful book

    4. Well, this collection isn t 100% good I m only half way through and have only really enjoyed 4 of the short stories of this collection including Jorge Amado, Julio Cotr zar, Murilo Rubi o, and Isabel Allende Most of the translations or pieces of writing themselves are old and stuffy The few gems in this collection did hold me over though.

    6. A terrific collection of Latin American fiction Introduced me to a number of exceptionally talented authors I d never heard of and treated me to some stories from a number of ol reliables The Garcia Marquez story very brief is breathtaking.

    7. I like the way the short stories are organized geographically and are preceeded by the authors biographies.
