    One thought on “Wild Steps of Heaven

    1. Debbie Zapata on said:

      This is a violent, crude, loving, dramatic, funny, horrifying, sad, surprising, and ultimately glorious family history.I ve been trying to think of how to describe my reactions to this book since I finished reading Over the top for violence Perhaps, but during the Revolution many savage things happened to the people, so each incident here is entirely plausible, if not exactly pleasant for the reader There are a lot of clashes here male power against female, destroying the earth against cherishin [...]

    2. Chrissie on said:

      Violent If I had to describe this book in one word, that is what I would choose The book brims with raw emotion, detailed descriptions of corporal functions, sex and defecation, rape and sexual ecstasy exaltation too, aspects of earthiness and heavenly beliefs The author clearly wants to tie these qualities to how people relate to their fate and God This was over the top for me I listened to the audiobook narrated by Dick Hill He put his soul into every word spoken A book that is emotionally raw [...]

    3. Jeanette"Astute Crabbist" on said:

      A very simply told fictionalized account of the author s father s family in Northern Mexico around the time of the Mexican Revolution You can always tell when an author comes from a rich oral tradition, because their writing comes across similar to what an oral telling would sound like I especially liked Part 2 of the book, which focused on the strength and wisdom of the women in the village The men are just full of that annoying Mexican machismo and violence, but the women are the ones with the [...]

    4. Daisy on said:

      I have not been able to stop reading this since Desiree recommended it to me I never laughed and cried so much A truly beautiful tale.

    5. Denise Austin on said:

      I would give this book a 4.5 for an interesting story and a 3 for the way it was told It s spiritual thread was essential to the richness of the story but came across as preaching instead of enhancement.

    6. Reikista on said:

      Story of the Villase or family in Los Altos de Jalisco during the Mexican Revolution, illustrating the joining of the Spanish and the native.

    7. Amy Becerra on said:

      This book is a brilliantly written book by Victor Villase or that I had the pleasure of reading Villase or is an amazing storyteller and he flexes his abilities magnificently in this novel Being of Mexican descent, I felt that I could relate to a lot of aspects of this book Even if the reader is not, I feel that anyone could enjoy this book because it has a lot to offer As other reviews have said, it does have violence and other things of that nature in it Besides that, the book itself is comedi [...]

    8. Judy King on said:

      Victor Villasenor is a brilliant story teller and he has a world of stories to tell about his familia who started in the highlands of the central Mexican state of Jalisco Los Altos, near Arandas The story of this book is of the unbelievable hardships his family withstood during the time of the Mexico Revolution and the beginning of the Cristeros just after His grandmother watched as her family of 14 children, who all grew to adulthood were killed, maimed, castrated, raped and murdered until by t [...]

    9. Chrisann Justice on said:

      I read this book with my Spanish students in Barrow last year I had already read it several times myself but there is nothing like reading it with other people to make you aware of all of the things that are very adult about the book I love this book It s super interesting and easy to get into and could be the beginning of the Rain of Gold book as it s a part of the story that he didn t tell in that book Just be forewarned that it s got some pretty intense parts and doesn t hold back details.

    10. Barbara Lovejoy on said:

      I had read the book Rain of Gold by this author and enjoyed it so much I looked forward to reading this other book based on the life of the author s family It was wonderful Loved learning about this incredible family I understand that there is or is going to be a movie based on Rain of Gold Can t wait to see it

    11. Paula on said:

      In the tradition of Mexican American writers this novel weaves a fictionalized recount of Villasenor s family history through imagery that transports you to Mexico I would definitely recommend this novel However, I would warn potential readers that there is tendency in the novel to focus on magic, which occasionally may seem unrealistic.

    12. Moe on said:

      This is a memoir from one of my favorite authors The story was good but I have to say that too many little details in the book were dragged on and on and on, not to mention repetitive Otherwise, the story ended with me the reader wanting to know .

    13. Denis on said:

      A memoir of Mexico and a family history that reads like a novel A great read, written with panache and tenderness, filled with over the top characters and drama A fascinating introduction to Mexican culture and history through a true saga.

    14. Book Concierge on said:

      Villasenor continues the sage of his family, this time focusing on his father s family This book has LOTS Mexican allegory and saints stories than his earlier work Not quite the same impact as Rain of Gold.

    15. Lexie on said:

      I LOVED Rain of Gold I think I d had such high hopes for Wild Steps that it couldn t live up to my expectations So disappointed Also, the audio reader was horrible Maybe I d like it better reading it myself.

    16. Kimberly Silva Ortiz on said:

      I really did like the book They only thing I would change are all the small details that make the book drag a little, but I guess that s the style of this author Overall, I truly enjoyed reading this book, and I look foward to reading material from this autor.

    17. Nikee Huntington on said:

      Great storyteller This book was written after Rain of Gold and after 13 Senses, but is the story that takes place before both of them Juan s childhood I am glad I read it 3rd because while it is a good story, it s not as good as the other two.

    18. Nancy on said:

      Not as impressive as his other books, but fun to read VERY interesting portrayal of Mexican families in the early 1900s.

    19. Rosemariesrh on said:

      Second book in the Rain of Gold trilogy The author is wonderfully descriptive.

    20. Michelle on said:

      I just finished this book I think it is a great intro to the works of Victor Villasenor After this one, you might be hooked

    21. Sara on said:

      Beautiful, but sometimes hard to read book about people who lived not too far from my grandmother s ancestral homeland Lesson to learn from this can t we all just get along

    22. Linda on said:

      A beautifully woven mystical coming of age story in the times of the Mexican Revolution I am enjoying the read and find myself savoring lines in the book that are worth holding on to.

    23. Joaquin on said:

      Rain of Gold is the story about the fathers side of this family history and Wild Steps of Heaven was about the mothers I loved both, but I enjoyed this one .

    24. Mary on said:

      I enjoyed it very much I read it because I had read Rain of Gold years and years ago and never forgotten it So when I saw this at a book sale I just had to buy it.

    25. Jackie on said:

      I read this book my freshmen year and I m glad I did The book is full of love, magic and family Victor Villasenor did an excellent job with this book.

    26. Donna on said:

      It was a good book but for me it was just of Rain of Gold so I dont know that you would need to read both books.
