    Le voyage dOctavio Kindle ´ Le voyageePUB æ voyage mobile, doctavio mobile, Le voyage kindle, Le voyage dOctavio eBookI was given an advance copy of this book by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI wish that I had read this novella in a college level literature class I am a bit frustrated because I feel that I only was able to appreciate about 23 of this fine book Octavio’s journey is an allegorical story of the history of Venezuela The author clearly had much to say and while I was able to follow the concepts of Octavio the main character a giant who symbolizes the country as it develops as Venezuela betraying his own culture and history wandering lost until ultimately finding himself I feel that in a University class some historical background would have really made the differenceIf I may make a suggestion it might be interesting to include an introduction in a subseuent printing that provides a brief historical essay no spoilers for the novella please that outlines historical events and could give someone without knowledge of the history of Venezuela

    Le voyage dOctavio Kindle ´ Le voyageePUB æ voyage mobile, doctavio mobile, Le voyage kindle, Le voyage dOctavio eBookTrigger warnings Violence probably some other stuff but I read this like a week ago and it was under a hundred pages soThis book is very reminiscent for me of Gabriel Garcia Maruez It's set in Venezuela and involves peculiar characters and magical realism So Really I don't have a HUGE amount to say about this It's only 90 something pages so there's not a lot of time for character development or story development or anything like that The first half was definitely interesting to me than the second and the ending was downright weird But I'm glad I read it it definitely gave me a lot to think about
