The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Survivors in Mexico - Rebecca West - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of Survivors in Mexico:

Rebecca's observations in Mexico.

My favorite Rebecca West quote from the book:

"Life out to be a struggle of desires toward adventures whose nobility will fertilize the soul."

Questions to ponder while reading Survivors in Mexico:

Is any country easily explained?

Did you find the culture as fascinating as I did?

My thoughts on Survivors in Mexico:

Entertaining observations.

Rich in character exploration.

I wish she had gotten to finish the book.
