Apr 03, Mae rated it it was amazing Shelves: This story of Rigoberta is inspiring and enlightening. This is the kind of book they should make everyone read. Its about an unsung hero at least in the eyes of the world. We, white upperclass latinos, don’t know much about the plight of the the Indians.

In fact, we are kept from this information, systematically. The mencju is out there, but you need to find it. Rigoberat, was just another quiet submissive indian girl in Guatemala.

One day, she became the voice of the indians, and a long lin This story of Rigoberta is inspiring and enlightening. One day, she became the voice of the indians, and a long line of abuses and injury came out. Thanks to the courage of this little only in size woman. Nevertheless, it is an important book for any scholar of Latin America, women’s rights, or dictatorships.

However, it is important to note that it should be read as testimony and not as an autobiography, as that is what it was meant to be and what it is. Having read this book in both the original Spanish and the translation into English, I should note that it is much ljbro in Spanish, despite it being well translated into English. It is not a difficult read in Spanish although it can be difficult emotionallyand I would highly recommend it is Spanish if you have a decently high level of Spanish.

Four stars assumes that the reader also takes into account the controversy and reads both sides in an unbiased manner, as the book is currently taught in most schools and universities, it would deserve two. Dec 31, Michele Hegg rated it it was amazing. Make sure to read the introduction as the author gives an explanation as to why she has the book laid out as it is. It really feels like an open, heart-to-heart conversation with this native Guatemalan woman, and if you’re bilingual, I recommend the Spanish version which I believe gives you an even deeper look into the Guatemalan way of life.

May 21, Morgan Turbo rated it md was ok.

It took me a long time to read this book. One of the reasons is that this is a paper book, and I find it is much easier to read a digital when reading in a foreign language easier to review notes, easier to do word lookups in the dictionary. For a gringa, this was a great introduction to some of the history and issues of the indigenous people in Guatemala – as well as great for learning Spanish.

Me llamo Rigoberta Menchú y así me nació la conciencia

Although she’s a controversial figure and there is debate as to some of the historical accuracy in It took me a long time to read this book. Although she’s a controversial figure and there is debate as to some of the historical accuracy in some of the events she describes, this book gives a very good general feel of the indigenous perspective on the problems in Guatemala.

Una mujer santa- esperamos todos ser tan fuertes! This is the true story of Rigoberta Menchu, a native from Guatemala, born into poverty and slave-like conditions, just like the rest of her people. This book describes the living conditions of the indigenous people of Guatemala, their struggle to better those conditions, the obstacles they face kidnappings, murders, torture.

It is also the story of Rigoberta Menchu and her family, most of which is murdered in the struggle for equality. An inspiring and eye-opening story.

I really really loved this book. I read it for a Spanish literature class my last semester in college, and it was one of my favorite books that semester. It was definitely hard to read at times – her life was no piece of cake – but my favorite parts were the chapters in which she described the customs of her culture. Perhaps Nwcio am more interested in anthropology than I thought!

Hard to understand the way she talks at the beginning but then you flow with it.

Excellent but terrible horror-filled narrative of atrocities endured by native peoples in Guatemala. Jan 22, Rebecca rated it liked it.
