If you're looking for a highly entertaining book, this is definitely it. Assuming the reader is in the right mood, the book can really make the reader laugh. The characters are surprising and quirky, the author creates them so as to make them very memorable. There are quite a few situation discussed that will cause the reader to raise his/her eyebrow. The author definitely has both a sense of humor and a quick wit to create dialogue that flows so well and so humorously.

The book isn't all fun and games. The author includes a fair amount about the real Mayans and Mexico's heritage. The reader should find this information very interesting and informative. The information is well-integrated and does not read even remotely like a history book. The names of the characters might take a while to learn the pronunciation-but that is only for a few names. Overall, the reader will easily associate the correct name to the correct character, he/she will stick out about a quarter of the way into the novel.

This book is recommended for adult readers. There is enough action to keep the plot moving along at a steady pace and the dialogue is just plain great. ( )
