A Classic

Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya

By: Rudolfo Anaya

Genre: Classics

Pages: 290

Published: 1999

2 out of 5

As much as I try, I tend to not be a fan of classics.  I usually find them difficult to follow because of the older writing style. I did not experience that aspect with this novel.  Ultima is the intriguing person and I loved the relationship she has with Antonio.  I found the plot very interesting, but my mind would start wandering as I read. Certain parts wouldn’t hold my interest and then I realized I  missed something important. However, even more annoying was the fact that Antonio is in 1st/2nd grade for the entirety of the novel but he sounds like he is, at least, in high school. He didn't act, speak or think like a 7/8 year old. I often forgot that he is so young.  I do think others will appreciate the novel, especially those that are fans of classics.
