Breakfast In Bogotá

Set in 1940s Colombia, Breakfast In Bogotá is about a broken architect trying to build something new by Helen Young

Review for Breakfast In Bogotá

This book is a triumph for Helen Young. The slow build of a number of storylines left me curious as to what was coming next - and as the pace accelerated, reflecting the backdrop of a revolution, I couldn’t put the book down. The themes of political and personal allegiances and the vivid character portrayals took me to Bogota, questioning what action I would take next and wanting to know more about the political and historical context. Maybe one day I’ll have breakfast there?
