Again, this is only my second MVL book but I was surprised by both the dark humor (which I enjoyed) and the lightness of the overall tone. Mario's friends are all nuts, but in a good way. The ending was a bit of a letdown, but it fit in perfectly with the rest of the story, or at least it was a realistic ending.
My favorite chapter is when Mario, Aunt Julia, and Mario's friends are driving all over the country trying to find a mayor to marry them illegally. I pictured it as a silent film with the sped up projection and the frenzied organ music. It's one of the few times I've laughed out loud while reading a book.
I was also disappointed with the ending, mostly with the revelation of what happened to Pedro Camacho after his treatment. I'm not exacting sure what I was expecting though.
