    This story of Rigoberta is inspiring and enlightening This is the kind of book they should make everyone read Its about an unsung hero at least in the eyes of the world We, white upperclass latinos, don t know much about the plight of the the Indians In fact, we are kept from this information, systematically The information is out there, but you need to find it.Rigoberta, was just another quiet submissive indian girl in Guatemala One day, she became the voice of the indians, and a long line of abuses and injury came out Thanks to the courage of this little only in size woman.

    While the story of Rigoberta Mench is a horrifying example of what can happen under an oppressive dictatorship, the inaccuracies, half truths, and distortions diminish the impact that the book would otherwise have Nevertheless, it is an important book for any scholar of Latin America, women s rights, or dictatorships However, it is important to note that it should be read as testimony and not as an autobiography, as that is what it was meant to be and what it is Also, I would suggest reading Rigoberta Mench and the Story of All Poor Guatemalans by David Stoll, as understanding the controversy surrounding her story is an absolutely critical part of understanding the story itself.Having read this book in both the original Spanish and the translation into English, I should note that it is much better in Spanish, despite it being well translated into English It is not a difficult read in Spanish although it can be difficult emotionally , and I would highly recommend it is Spanish if you have a decently high level of Spanish.Four stars assumes that the reader also takes into account the controversy and reads both sides in an unbiased manner, as the book is currently taught in most schools and universities, it would deserve two.

    I love how the author wrote it as a narrative in Rigoberta Mench s voice rather than a biography Make sure to read the introduction as the author gives an explanation as to why she has the book laid out as it is It really feels like an open, heart to heart conversation with this native Guatemalan woman, and if you re bilingual, I recommend the Spanish version which I believe gives you an even deeper look into the Guatemalan way of life.

    Decid leer este libro sin entrar en la controversia que rodea este libro y estoy contenta con esta decisi n porque aunque estoy segura que hay inexactitudes en la historia, el tema central, la de la represi n y discriminaci n lleva una importancia indudable Adem s, las descripciones de la cultura indigena maya y sus costumbres conmueven el lector porque recibimos una idea de c mo viven esas comunidades tan aisladas Al mismo tiempo, lleva mucha tristeza cuando se da cuenta que la violencia sufrido por esas comunidades viene de un lugar de ignorancia y discriminaci n acerca de los pueblos ind genas.

    Contiene partes interesantes como los rituales de adolescencia pero me aburran mucho las oraciones repetidas y los p rrafos sin fin Como es que ella puede decir los antepasados le dijeron de no contar los secretos y en el mismo cap tulo ella cuenta en muchos detalles los rituales de casamiento Si est s estudiando las culturas ind genas en meso Am rica, podr a tener informaci n de primera mano para utilizar pero tienes que leer mucho para encontrarla No recomiendo hacerlo.

    It took me a long time to read this book One of the reasons is that this is a paper book, and I find it is much easier to read a digital when reading in a foreign language easier to review notes, easier to do word lookups in the dictionary For a gringa, this was a great introduction to some of the history and issues of the indigenous people in Guatemala as well as great for learning Spanish Although she s a controversial figure and there is debate as to some of the historical accuracy in some of the events she describes, this book gives a very good general feel of the indigenous perspective on the problems in Guatemala.

    whether burgos ghost wrote it or not, this book is groundbreaking how else would the world really even know or care for that matter about the genocide that takes place in latin america, and so, that is unaccounted for in the first world rigoberta is by far and away an inspiration to the field of post colonial studies, whether you consider her problematic or a nobel piece prize winning inspiration.

    This is the true story of Rigoberta Menchu, a native from Guatemala, born into poverty and slave like conditions, just like the rest of her people This book describes the living conditions of the indigenous people of Guatemala, their struggle to better those conditions, the obstacles they face kidnappings, murders, torture It is also the story of Rigoberta Menchu and her family, most of which is murdered in the struggle for equality An inspiring and eye opening story.

    I really really loved this book I read it for a Spanish literature class my last semester in college, and it was one of my favorite books that semester It was definitely hard to read at times her life was no piece of cake but my favorite parts were the chapters in which she described the customs of her culture Perhaps I am interested in anthropology than I thought
