BUDDY LEVY CONQUISTADOR PDF

How many ways can you say he was one tactical, ruthless mother fucker? Not that many, it turns out, since Levy calls him a "brilliant strategist" about a dozen times. My biggest issue with this book, however, is not with the author, but with the voice actor who did the narration on the audiobook. Descriptions of the dimensions of various causeways, a full accounting of the number of mares and harquebuses that the Spanish had in working order at various points during the conquest, a recounted geography of the various causeways connecting Tenochtitlan to the mainland, these are details that are hard to bring to life verbally.

My main beef with him was his butchering of the pronunciation of various Spanish and indigenous Mexican names. Aguilar is pronounced Ah-ghee-lar, not Ah-gwi-lar. The weirdest part about his narration, however, was that when the text quoted Cortes, Lawlor uses this bizarre "Spanish" accent when speaking his words. I ended up looking forward to these parts because of the comic relief they offered.

Despite all the complaints I have about this book, I must say that I listened to the whole thing. This might say more about how compelling the story of the conquest is, but perhaps some credit should be given to Buddy Levy and the way he tells the story. I found myself turning off my car and thinking, "I wonder what is going to happen in this battle," or "How will Cortes get out of this one?!?
