But just hours after he has been approached by the right, the head of the opposition makes him the exact same offer. What is Bettini going to do?

The political information is very much in the background; as someone who didn’t have a ton of background info on the topic, I wish some of those political nuances had been included to help readers sympathize with the difficulties Bettini’s father experienced in getting this campaign running.

Mar 12, Frannie rated it liked it Shelves: I loved the first half, but lost interest as it continued. Interesting glimpse into that particular time in Chilean history the plebiscite on Pinochetespecially the daily fears of living under Pinochet. Watching the film version No not long after finishing the book; they complement one another nicely.

Several students currently reading – will note their thoughts. Aug 04, Christine rated it liked it. A book about people who refuse to be broken. This novel switches between the perspective of a teenager and of the marketing person hired to take on the most daunting campaign of his career.

Simple writing or simplified translation is very understated, leaving the book with muted sentiments about unspoken horrors. I bought this book for summer homeworks and I thought this book would be another boring stuff that teachers are used to love but actually it surprised me.

I enjoyed this book even though it’s a little bit slow but still. It explains quite well which are the worries and the fears of being in a dictatorial period.
