I received a free Kindle copy of The Cuban Affair by Nelson DeMille courtesy of Net Galley and Simon & Schuster, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would post a review on Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my book review blog. I also posted it to my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus pages.
I requested this book as I have read some of the other books by the author and found them to be interesting reads.
This book is a fast read that maintains the readers interest. As the title implies the plot of the book revolves around a trip to Cuba under false pretenses and the narrow escape back to Key West. DeMille weaves in some the existing attitudes and prejudices of both sides, exiled Cubans and those still on the island, and how even under a different regime from Baptista, that some of the things that were happening then still do except that the infrastructure of the country has deteriorated.
I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an escape read that is entertaining, but not overly complicated.
