Es que la chilenidad de ppajaro libro se desborda por los costados. Typically, when I read something that I am unable to gain my bearings in, I get bored, frustrated, and annoyed – this book however, due to the compelling images and glimpses of a deeply human story, kept me going. I have a feeling that if you cared enough to do all of this that the answer you’d find would be very unsatisfactory.
