    " I found this book quite engaging, and it has heightened my fascination with the life of Frida Kahlo. After reading this well-written biographical fiction, I'd like to read a non-fiction biography of this spirited artist. "

    " This book was a work of fiction based on the life of Frida kahlo. It was told from the point of view of Cristina Kahlo, Frida's youngest sister and constant companion. The author speculates what it must have been like for Cristi to live in the shadow of her famous sister. The tale of Frida, entwined with the rich history of the Mexican Revolution and the Mexican Art Movement, is a fsacinating, rich and scandalous story. There is no denying the fact tha Frida lived a life rich in interesting experiences. This part of the story I found fascinating. However, the portrayal of Cristi was more than annoying. Instead of sympathizing with her for all she did for Frida, I wound up hating her for always being so jealous of her sister. If this is an accurate portrayal of Frida's little sister, she is a poor soul who lived a lonely life vicariously through her sister, and was so entrenched in bitterness and jealousy that she would betray the one person she was closest to (which she did.) It was a good book, and the descriptions were colorful and realistic. Sometimes it was a little over dramatic. Mujica is a very talented author who created an unlikeable character in her version of Cristina Kahlo. Still, I would recommend it to Frida fans. "

    " I had been looking for this book for awhile and finally came across it at BMV for $1 and took it on my trip through NY, Portugal, France & Spain. But I never found enough time to read it until I came back. It was an interesting book and I had thought at first it was non-fiction until after many chapters when I realized it wasn't. ;) I had mixed feelings about the book at some points I really enjoyed reading about the culture, or the ideas behind the paintings. At other parts there was just too much detail for my liking. But the book for sure hooked you in, always wanting to know what was next. Frida got on my nerves as much as on many of the characters towards the end as well. ;) I thought that the perspective through the sister was also an interesting way to approach the life of this artist. "

    " I like to read artist biographies. I think that is like the least popular form of studying art history because it's too easy or too much focused on the 'history' part or something. I read this years ago and it was pretty decent. It is the standard Frida Kahlo story told from her sister's perspective. I remember liking it but I mostly remember that I was reading it when I met my husband. Like, literally. I was eating pizza and reading this book and he came over and talked to me. Irrelevant but true! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/7/2014

    " A very interesting historical novel as told from the perspective. of Frida Kahlo's sister. According to the author's notes, Mujica took quite a few liberties with the story. Looking beyond that, she developed both the characters & plot extremely well. Her descriptions of Frida & Diego leap off the page. At times it was difficult to determine reality from Cristina's delusions, which was probably the author's intension. "

    " This book makes me want to go see Kahlo and Rivera's art. I now also would like to read a non-fiction bio about Kahlo. If you're interested in Kahlo, Jonah Winters has a great children's book out about her ("Frida") with amazing illustrations by Ana Juan. "

    " Wonderful book about an amazing woman. If you like female heroines do read this one. "

    " both words and movie are fantastic! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susana | 12/2/2013

    " I thought it was a clever way to present the story of Frida Kahlo's life through the eyes of her sister. It's a different perspective that still gives you a glimpse into her life without it sounding like an autobiography. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Roanne | 12/1/2013

    " This book is truly inferior to the Hayden Herrera bio, and (as another reviewer mentioned), riddled with errors. A waste of time. "

    " Couldn't put it down in the beginning, but then it slowed down a bit... still a great story of love, art, and history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Poulsen | 9/9/2013

    " Surprisingly interesting - I had no interest in Frida before reading this. "Narrated" (fictionally) by Frida's sister talking to a therapist. Reads like a novel but is based on Frida's (and her sister's) real lives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 8/11/2013

    " Fictional account of Frida Kahlo from pov of her younger sister, Christina, who had an affair w/ Diego. As told to a psychologist interviewing her. "
