    Although I have been to the Yucatan several times, this novel depicts a whole different side to the region. When I go back, and I will, I want to find my own version of David, Stephen, Javier, Isabel and others. Their characters are vividly etched in my mind, and I wish them well. A great read, and more than that...this book gives you plenty of substance and leaves you informed--on more than one subject.

    The Polo Affair is one of those books that you race through -- only to reach to final chapter and find yourself savoring every last sentence because you don't want it to end. Even though I am not a polo player (I don't even ride horses), I really enjoyed the polo component of the book. I've seen a few polo games in my life but have never understood them; Hennessy does a great job of not only explaining polo to the novice, but capturing the game's beauty and incorporating its fast pace into the pages of his novel. Mostly, though, I fell in love with the characters: their complex personalities and well-versed back stories. The author does a great job of introducing them to the reader, developing relationships, all the whilst weaving an intricate, riveting story line. I read this book while in Mexico, which was even more of a treat. Hennessy has a very deep understanding of (and obvious connection with) Mexico's country and culture, and takes great care to explain the details to the... More > reader. The book not only heightened my appreciation for Mexico, it actually contributed to my experience there. All in all, I loved the book. Great plot, funny, interesting, beautifully written -- I couldn't put it down!< Less

    A real page turner, I did not work out all the twists and turns until the end. The polo part is excellent and a real insight to the sport, even if you know nothing about polo it is explained as you go without even realising it. I also think the book gave a great insight into Mexico. Well worth it.
