Tome es un pueblito pequeño y aparentemente apacible en Nuevo México central. En las hábiles manos de Ana Castillo este asombroso lugar se nos revela como un sitio de maravillas, lleno de vida y conflictos: del pasado con el presente, lo real con lo sobrenatural, lo cómico con lo horrífico, las tradiciones nativas con lo latino y lo anglo, las mujeres con los hombres. Con voz íntima y locuaz, con la libertad narrativa de una Cervantes del suroeste norteamericano, Castillo relata la historia de dos décadas atestadas en la vida de una familia chicana.

    " wow. really good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Justin | 2/7/2014

    " Terrible novel. It makes no sense and goes off on randon tangents that aren't relevent to the already nonexistent story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 2/7/2014

    " A fun and mystical novel. I highly recommend it, but only if you can read some Spanish - it is written in true Spanglish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 2/5/2014

    " I am enjoying this book very much. Ana Castillo uses magic realism to describe a very interesting family in New Mexico "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/31/2014

    " Clever and witty, a nice combination of magical realism and feminist perspectives through the field of religion. Keep the faith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 1/22/2014

    " Very funny! The characters are unique and interesting, but you definitely have to appreciate "realismo magico". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/20/2014

    " This is my favorite book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Staci Martin | 1/5/2014

    " a college novel that I kept :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 12/5/2013

    " A novel rich in magical realism, Ana Castillo offers a glimpse into the Latino/Chicano experience using characters that are as delightfully flawed as they are lovable. A good read, with a quick pace. An excellent edition to your Summer reading list. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosalie | 9/17/2013

    " This book is so funny, so painful, so beautiful. Ana Castillo is a total bad ass.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shana | 9/15/2013

    " A fantastical book that has stayed with me for decades; magical realism and my favorite of Castillo's early works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eininn deligio | 8/23/2013

    " a great exploration of culture, spirituality and the daily of life "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 8/19/2013

    " I love that this book brings in traditions such as the curandera and mal de ojo and other milagros. This book combines the best of several worlds and peers into cultures in a humorous and poignant way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marlena | 8/16/2013

    " A beautiful novel about a Mexican-American family of women living in New Mexico. This is one of my favorite books ever! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 7/31/2013

    " Beautiful, but I might be biased since I love Latin American literature and anything that seems just a little bit magic realism-ish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Mishap | 2/11/2013

    " Set in a small New Mexico town, this outrageous book reads like a politically conscious soap-opera, but way over the top. Chronicles the trials and tribulations of one family and shouldn't you be going to the library to pick this up now? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 3/30/2012

    " I loved this book! I can't wait to read more from this author. She is a feminist and a Chicana. I enjoyed the magic, and the characters. However, do not start reading this book while you are sitting in the doctor's office for prenatal tests. Not a good place to start! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dr. Robin M. Chandler | 10/10/2011

    " Personal journies in the life of the spirit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan Collins | 9/18/2010

    " I love this book. I also love Ana Castillo's poetry. What an amazing writer. This book is now a favorite. I've lent it to my sister and when she returns it, I will read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 7/24/2010

    " Gah! i adore this book. full of folklorish reality, healing arts, miracles and everyday saints, plus a good deal of profane reality. delicious. i would say "larger than life" but i do believe that life is just about as large as the book makes it out to be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherish | 6/5/2010

    " beautiful. tragic and lovely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joslyn Dyer | 8/1/2009

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 1/12/2009

    " About a Mexican-American family living in the southwest and the fate of the three very different daughters. Magic-realism. "
