substructure enhanced

This book brought so many memories of how state terror has been present in many countries of Latino America. Very similar in its descriptions like El seor Presidente, the masterpiece novel of the Guatemalan literature novel laureate Miguel Angel Asturias. It’s so sad to know that all these crimes still are happening. In the other side it reinstates faith in those who are willing to sacrifice their lives for the hope of a new country. This should be a mandatory reading to anyone who wants to check their conviction and commitment for justice and respect of law.
