A sad story as it deals with loss (by the Nazis and from 9/11), which does offer a bit of hope and redemption at the end.

However it has one problem: it has the typical, American view of post-revolutionary Cuba, where everything is bleak, and everyone wants to leave (even though, if you are sick and need healthcare, Cuba is a better place to be than the US). No mention of how the population was exploited and uneducated before the revolution.

It is an interesting read, but keep the bias in mind.
