El coronel no tiene quien le escriba (No One Writes to the Colonel) by Gabriel García Márquez

Although I found this book interesting, it wasn’t really my style. Its lack of resolution felt a bit depressing, and I think that was intentional, but I prefer something that provides at least a little hope.
I should mention that I read the book in Spanish, which I speak and read well but not with native fluency. While I don’t think that I missed anything important, I may not have caught every little detail or appreciated the writing style as much as I would when reading in English.
Reading in Spanish was difficult but also rewarding. My Spanish vocabulary is limited, so I looked up lots of words along the way and read quite slowly. Finishing the book felt good, though, and I’m hoping to read more in Spanish in the future.
