Book Review-Hummingbird

Standard

One of the best books I’ve ever read in my entire life!

If you like reading deep, personal, passionate, history based books, then try this one out!

I felt as if I was truly amongst my people in what was Mexica in the 1500s. Yes, “Mexica”, which is now coined as “Mexico”.

This story will take you back to the year 1583 in the city of Coyoacan, the outskirts of Tenochtitlan, Mexico. This was the period when the famous (infamous on my terms) Don Hernan Cortes visited the Aztecas when the Aztec King Moctezuma awaited his arrival.

There is an Indigenous women who actually lived through the fall of of what was once a beautiful Azteca world called Mexica.

This story explains in detail what happened when Cortes arrived and she reports to a Catholic Spaniard Pope of her personal experiences.

Without going into detail, the protagonist is “Father Benito Lara” and the the telling author is “Huitzitzilin”, which is a name that comes from her native language of Nahuatl. The teller is fully aware that Spaniards cannot pronounce her name, so she tells them to call her “hummingbird”.

Try it out! This story will take you to new heights or glorious dreams, unbelievable stories and hypnotic vibes.

Enjoy!

“When Cortes left the chamber, three of his captains remained. One of them was Baltazar Obando. They had their ordera, and those of us who had remained in the room knew what was going to happen. Moctezuma’s wife tried to shield her husband, but one of the Spaniards hit her on the head and she died”

A snippet of the best book ever.
