I’m halfway through the Luba hardcover and oh my – I’m in love! Seriously, it’s Hernandez’s best since Heartbreak Soup!
I guess it’s because it’s so wonderfully character driven, all the stories lock into each other, the characters are all so rich and diverse, and *shock horror* Luba is tolerable!
All of Luba’s kids – from big to small, are all so adorable, and so full of quirkiness. I love how Hernandez has made all of them, except for Socorro, have homosexual tendencies.
I love Fritz and her cute little lisp (being a girl that has a slight lisp, I can relate), I love Venus and how she acts way beyond her years, I love how handsome Sergio is, I love how vivacious Doralis acts and how a whole TV show is dedicated to her crazy ways – really there isn’t that much NOT to love!
The only characters that give me a bit of an uneasy feeling are Gato - he’s big and ugly and creepy – and Khamo – I just don’t trust the guy!
Stay tuned for a full review after I finish the wonderful trip that has been the “Luba” hardcover!
