Summary

Renowned through four award-winning stories for his gritty and revelatory visions of the Caribbean, Bob Shacochis returns to occupied Haiti in The Woman Who Lost Her Soul before sweeping across time and continents to unravel tangled knots of romance, espionage, and vengeance. In riveting prose, Shacochis builds a complex and disturbing story about the coming of age of America in a pre-9/11 world. Set over 50 years and in four countries backdropped by different wars, The Woman Who Lost Her Soul is National Book Award winner Bob Shacochis’ magnum opus that brings to life, through the mystique and allure of history, an intricate portrait of catastrophic events that led up to the war on terror and the America we are today.

Loved it at first, and then...

Any additional comments?

The first 2/3 of this book are fantastic on every level, but then it begins to read like an unexciting list, information flying faster and faster at the reader as, somehow, less and less seems to happen. I think this book could have been Pulitzer material if Sacochis had taken another year or two make the final third comparable to the first two thirds.

Lackluster narration. Story was okay, not great.

I had a hard time staying with the narrator. His tone hardly varied. The complexity of the story overwhelmed the point made by the last line.

Good story but Really long

It an interesting tale of revenge and loyalty. The story is well written with enough twist in plot to keep listening.
You should enjoy this if you are into stories about covert operations and secret service mission .
