New 5-Star Review for HLTN at Amazon

Great Novel!, March 19, 2012
This review is from: However Long the Night (Paperback)

I loved David Pereda's novel, "However Long The Night." I often get bored with novels, but this one hooked me in and I finished it more quickly than any book I've read in a long time.

I love reading both fiction and non-fiction that take place in Latin America and the Caribbean. Cuba is especially fascinating to me due to both its proximity to the US, and the complicated relationship between the two countries. David did a wonderful job of combining historical references with intriguing fictional characters, and helping us get to know a place most of us have never visited.

The characters were complex and well-developed. I especially enjoyed getting to know the lead character, Cid. Through David's vivid descriptions, the reader easily becomes sympathetic to Cid's plight of being pulled back and forth between his adult life in Miami, and the life and people he left in Cuba as a teenager.

HLTN is an exciting page-turner, and I look forward to David's next book!
