This bold retelling trades in stark, primary colors. Gone is the nuanced philosophiocal debate of, say, Sophocles or Anouilh. The play was written in , a time of change both artistically and politically in Latin America. Characters speak directly to the audience, and villains are mere mouthpieces for social forces. Viewers are meant to leave the theater charged for action, rather than drained of emotion. For the most part, this is electric theater, liberated from the mire of realistic acting that plagues the North American stage and screen.

The way that the author shows how the papers and the publicity trick the civil just makes us think again that we shouldn't believe everything we actually see or read.
Perhaps the author is actually trying to make us aware of the situation in the present day. The way that he used the imaginary country that is actually very comparable with some countries of America and the Caribbean is actually really clever.

The only thing that I did not like was at the end; I thought that she actually TOLD Creon where she buried them, but then I realized what Luis had been telling us since the beginning the news are all lying to wash our brain and have the attitude they want us to have.

Aug 22, Marianne Boricuan Bookworms rated it really liked it. When I first started reading this book, I had no idea it was based on a greek tragedy. It was a great story with a very witty main character. She stayed strong through the end which made me like her even more.
I only wished the ending would have been longer. Nov 26, Katherine rated it it was amazing. Amazing and inspiring piece. It takes the Antigone story to a different -yet similar- Latin American context, at a time period where this story was a reflection of its politics.
