This is one of them books, for me personally, that I realised as soon as I read the prologue that the book was on one of my favourite subject areas and if it was as good as I thought it was going to be that I wouldn't want it to finish and be left wanting more. Even though the author states in his prologue that his characters are not the real, JFK, Fidel Castro, God and God's son Jesus, I think this is the author sense of humour which is strongly evident throughout, it's hard not to relate the characters to the real people. In order to prevent conflict between JFK and Castro God sends his son to earth to solve it. The author's knowledge and research shines through the characters and the way they think. A struggle of ideologies of two different people who wanted to achieve the same goal for the best of their people, one through a dictatorship and the other through democracy. This booked had me hooked from page one , the descriptions and thoughts of the characters give the readers real food for thought .The author uses very clever examples of how one mans actions can make you think about your beliefs and are they the right or can you change them for the better. As the story developed the writers humour really comes through on a par with Tom Sharpe .The author places Castro in some excellent situations which both challenge and explain his reasoning and beliefs. This is an excellent and enthralling read and I really hope that I can obtain or purchase the authors other publications.

I enjoyed this book, by far the best passages are the ones where God, Jesus, an Fatima are having a conversations about what to do about the impending war between JFK and Castro. It reminds me a little bit of Voltaire and a little bit of Gabriel Garcia Marquesz. Fascinating.

Bleakly cynical, bruta...

Bleakly cynical, brutally honest, and surreally irreverent, The Tragedy of Fidel Castro offers a sometimes uncomfortable juxtaposition of tragedy and comedy, raising Fidel Castro, FDR, and others to the status of myth as the gods look down or maybe intervene. "In their own muddled way, they're both trying to imitate you," says G to first-born son J, while Fatima listens and disparate threads come together. Long passages of introspection characterize this tale, combined with complex and conflicting motivations, mystical rumination, and the greater tragedy of human history, rendered magically surreal. Biblical parables and parallels abound. The madness of Nebachudnezzar repeats itself in a different frame. And diplomacy might be heaven's only hope a well as mankind's. The Tragedy of Fidel Castro is a long, slow, complex read, weightily self-conscious, with darkly tragi-comic humor, fierce determination, and a powerfully unsettling sense of unhinging divinities behind the scenes. Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I offer my honest review.

As usual I didn't pay anything for this book but instead got it for free in exchange for a review. This time directly from the author. Also as usual though I will be absolutely candid in my assessment of it. So I won't try to synopsize because you can read the description. What I will tell you is that this is deep and tangled satire. It's entirely possible that my lack of appreciation for it is due to a lack of patience on my part but I just could never grasp onto the flow of the narrative. I found my mind constantly wandering to some other topic as I tried to trudge through this book. I'll leave it at that. If you have an inherent interest in the subject matter and love deep and ponderous satire then this book could be perfect for you but I just couldn't wrap my mind around it. Too bad too because it's got a nice cover. Oh well.
