    3. One of the best novels I have ever read Wow What a ride I finished it and started rereading it I am not ready to part from it yet.


    4. Amazing I read this book thinking I knew the whole story from the very beginning Aging bullfighter goes back for one fight, not for money but for the taste of fame and glory Yada yada dies in the ring Immortalized.Not quite The book was beautifully written The story unforgettable.


    5. A very real story by an author who was actually a bullfighter himself It helps us animal lovers understand what draws people to this ancient sport Baraby Conrad was an extremely popular author in the 1950s He passed away recently at the age or 90 Fortunely his books are still available on kindle and in the form of an sudio download.


    6. I think I would have liked this book even better if I understood of the bull fighting terms However, props to this book for pulling me all the way to the end when I didn t understand everything The last two chapters alone make the read worthwhile.


    7. After reading this book, i now understand the appeal of bull fignting and have a new respect for the bull fighters


    8. Outstanding This a book about courage and the pressures people put on themselves Written in the simple style of Steinbeck and Hemingway.Over 3,000,000 copies sold A New York Times bestseller.
