Hilarious and moving. Characters drawn in great detail, but somehow they never came alive for me.

I did get through it, but it took a while, as every other book I was reading took precedence. Amidst the bustle of a magnetic and multifaceted city, the budding love between two dreamers is tested by duty and religious divides. Life in Cuba for three struggling families over the course of 45 years, from the cautious optimism of the early 1970s to the harrowing 1990s after the fall of the Soviet Union and the 2016 death of Fidel Castro.
