Kelimelerin ustası olarak Poe, kısa öykülerinde birçok morbid sahne ve garip durum inşa ediyor. Okuyucuyu nişanlı ve gergin tutmak onun zorunluluğu, sizi çaresiz bağlıymış gibi hissediyorsunuz, göğsünüze doğru durdurulamaz sallanan bir bıçak olarak karanlıkla çevrili. Evet, o kadar iyiydi.
While the most popular historical fiction novels seems to center on the Tudors and their immediate descendants, here is a book based on the true story of the Mirabal sisters, who are household names in their home, the Dominican Republic. Martyred during the revolution against dictator Trujillo (1950-1970), three of the four Mirabal sisters were part of the underground revolution. Alvarez uses the remaining sister, Dede, as the storyteller and protagonist. It's a warm, and completely engrossing story that gets off to a little bit of a slow start, and the end meanders a bit, but for the most part it's lovingly and expertly executed. Side note, Alvarez travled to the Dominican Republic to meet Dede and interview her before setting out to work on this book.
