Interesting read I was a little apprehensive about reading this when it was selected as a book read I was leery that it would read as a club read I was leery that it would read much like a textbook However it was actually uite the opposite I found it interesting and feel that I learned something about that time period and the culture without being bored or lectured to It is amazing what the Spaniards did to the Maya people and all in the name of Christianity I look forward to our book club meeting where the author is supposed to be present as he is a friend of one of the Members I Assumed This Was I assumed this was novel with made up characters in real historical times keeping to fact on the big names places and events but totally fabricating the characters But the cover implies that all the people were real and so does an internet search So I was wrong but I don t think that would have changed my opinion He seems to have done a great ob The details of daily life are so very very detailed that it reads like a volume of history And that I fear is my problemHistorians love history and of course they want to cram in all the facts they can uncover Here s a couple of fact filled examples They walked among palaces of magnificent stone and cedar with great rooms and courts covered by awnings of woven cloth The buildings were shining with lime and decorated with different kinds of stonework and paintings Countless multitudes of men women and children stood in the streets and on the rooftops or sat in canoes. The dramatic story of the first Europeans to encounter the Maya civilization in 1511 Based on actual people and events this exotic historical novel follows driven characters as they chart conflicting courses through a tumultuous world unlike anything they could ever have imagined Gonzalo shipwrecked in a violent storm he On the canals to see themAnd He walked through gardens with a myriad of red white and yellow flowers blooming trees and ponds of fresh water with an array of colorful fish There was an aviary with every from of bird he had ever seen in this land and Everything was built of stone and plastered including baths walkways and the large open rooms where Montezuma s entertainers danced and sangI liked reading this and I m not saying the book is overloaded with detail for example he didn t list every color and type of fish I was ust about the right balance of description dialog action and reflection for my tastes but I expect some people will say it should have had detailBut my issue ishe writes like a historian Historians cultivate a certain degree of emotional reserve between themselves and their subjects It s necessary I guess to keep things accurate but it left me cold I liked the people I understood their struggles but I didn t feel their strugglesSo maybe not a great story but definitely a great history Naturally I rate this book as a 5 star since I added it to Goodreads as the author For objective reviews you can search Maya Lord on where There Are Currently Several are currently several reviews or look can search Maya Lord on where there are currently several reader reviews or look comments by other authors at wwwjohncoerobbinscom An internet searchable newspaper review will appear in late September of 2011 in the Fort Worth Star Telegramjcr Maya Lord by John Coe Robbins is novel of historical fiction based on the lives of Gonzalo Guerre.
