Listener Opinions

    " A great introduction to what life was really like for a Cuban teenager who came to the US in the Mariel boatlift. I had no idea just how oppressive Castro's Cuba is/was. One of those books you can't help but share with your friends. Very well researched and beautifully written - I've been an avid fiction reader but if there is non-fiction written this well... I'm converting :-) "

    " having lived a number of years in So FL,i always wanted to know more of the cuban immigration. i thought this was VERY informative and really enjoyed it. "

    " A Cuban American's account of Castro's Cuba and events she experienced surrounding the 1980 Mariel boatlift which brought over 125,000 Cuban exiles to southern Florida shores. Was informative and well written, but did not connect on an emotional level, just didn't make me really feel the inner experience of it, which for me is the primary attraction of the memoir. However, author went on to win a Pulizter for her contribution to a series of articles published in NY Times. "

    " This is a really great book. My father is Cuban, so I'm constantly struggling to better understand the history of Cuba and what Cubans have gone through. Mirta Ojito writes a powerful and interesting story of her own experience in Cuba and intertwines it with key facts and historical accounts. Of all the Cuban memoirs I've read, this one is my favorite. "

    " Former parent and good friend wrote this book, good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leizbeth Vallejo-sanders | 1/17/2014

    " Worth reading, Ojitos gives an journalistic description of the events leading from the Marielitos leaving Cuba to the arrival to Florida, during the Carter administration. It answers questions I had about this event and some of its implications, in a way that reads more like fiction, a page turner. "

    " This story moved me b/c it is based on my country! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 12/11/2013

    " Another great memoir of the Mariel, Cuba boatlift in 1980. The author tells her personal story through direct historical accounts of the major political players invovled. Another hard book to put down. I may be going to Cuba as a result of this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanie | 12/10/2013

    " Excellent read if you are interested in Cuba's revolution and the impact on Cubans who now live in exile. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 6/24/2013

    " It was a good insiders perspective of growing up in Cuba and the people who worked on trying to help Cuba and Cubans but also wanting out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bannett | 5/8/2013

    " This book is about the Mariel boatlift from Cuba to Miami. My sister-in-law is Cuban, so I was interested to read it. The author came over during the boatlift when she was 16. The book goes between her own experience, and the world-wide events that lead up to this happening. A very interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine | 5/6/2013

    " As the child of Cuban immigrants, this was a fascinating read that gave me a better perspective on the history going on during the Mariel boat lift - the well-researched history made it even more compelling. "

    " Enjoyable book about a time and events I hadn't really thought about much before. I like that the author alternated between personal narrative and historical events. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vilo | 6/2/2012

    " Fascinating memoir of growing up in Cuba and participating in the Mariel boatlift. The author researched more than her own story, also telling how Mariel came about and the fates of some others who were involved. There is an audiobook in Spanish called El Manana. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristine | 4/22/2012

    " Finding Manana is a really interesting memoir, which I learned a lot from. It is well written and provides the reader with great insight of Castro's Cuba and the political circumstances prior to the exodus from the country from April to September 1980. "

    " Mirta Ojito writes beautifully and I learned a lot about the Cuban Exodus that I didn't know. I can now speak with so many of the people I meet here in Miami with a better idea of what their lives were like in Cuba. This book should really be required reading in schools. Fascinating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mom (Belinda) | 2/20/2012

    " I learned a lot about what it must be like to leave the home you love. The Cuban exodus to South Florida is very complicated and heart breaking. I recommend this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lennie | 5/19/2011

    " Mirta describes her life growing up in Communist Cuba and then the experience she went through when her and her family finally fled the country. After reading this book, I felt more appreciative for the freedoms we have here in America. It was a well written memoir. "
