RaveColumbia JournalThe piece has the atmosphere of a journalistic feature, not only because Varas—the journalist—is our hero, but because the division between fiction and nonfiction is blurry ... Throughout the book, Alemán embroiders a series of characters that are at times ironical, and other times fall into the depiction of cartoons. They are playful and ironic, however (at times) it feels like the outcome of their actions is predictable or too good to be true. But the masterfulness of the piece lies in how language plays a fundamental role to understanding the interaction between places (the ground and the underground), belief systems (religion and patriarchy), and power (politics and money). If you are looking for an exciting story to take your breath away—non-stop— Poso Wells is the answer ... [Alemán] draws a full circle of political and social criticism while still preserving the freshness of her voice. After getting to the end, we might look for an excuse to read her again.
