    some of the best political fiction i've ever read. definitely the best political fiction about the WTO protests and the human face of globalization.

    Find this somewhere and read it for its anger, its global political view, and its evident message. The anger especially.

    A novel driven by social/political themes and compassion, but not taken over by them. Deals well with the international economic system right on down to our relationships with each other. It is complicated: Chano, an activist in Mexico (whose wife was shot to death outside a union hall) went to jail while their son was sent to Costa Rica. Chano has been out, as the novel starts, not doing political work, when he is approached by a comrade and they blow up a contaminating factory. Ethan, Chano’ [...]

The trail leads to Tonalacapan and a community activist named Chano who has just blown up a water pipeline of the Ethylclad plant, which is sucking the local aquifer dry. On the run, Chano is also sought by his son, Daniel, who had been sent shortly after his birth to Costa Rica to live with relatives while Chano had served jail ti [...]

    Some great ideas but too tied up in its politics to concentrate on the plot. If you are interested in what its like to be involved in a mass protest then these scenes are fantastic, but the characters do not seem to develop in any way, and the end is a real let down. Politics rather than plot were they main focus of this novel. It was great to read a novel with brave politics but they just weren't enough to make me love it.

    a "Dickensian adoption novel" (NY Times Book Review) but too wound up in its own sense of political self-righteousness to be interesting. Disappointing, but I wanted to tell the author to keep trying.

    This book sucks but it's fiction about the 1999 WTO protests so I'm reading it for research.
