My main problem with this book was that I felt like I needed a dictionary. And not just a Spanish dictionary, but a Domincan Republic slang dictionary. Also, if I hadn't read quite a bit of fantasy, I would have missed a lot of references and jokes. The story and characters are brilliant, but it's written in such a way that it is very hard to read. It's almost childish in a way. It should have been edited with a wider audience in mind.
