This book is told in such a subtle way that sometimes I felt i was in the mind of the characters. I gained such an understanding of different social classes and was so drawn into the story i didn't want it to end. I'm a musician and I particularly related to the opera singer and pianist in the story, but also to the music lovers. This is a terrific book. Argentina and the form of government which is often military rule was described in a way that really makes you thankful to be in a democratic country (America). There is no judgement in this story, no taking sides, and many different nationalities are represented.
