    One thought on “Tango: An Argentine Love Story”

    1. Only for the stupidly tango obsessed. I might be tango obsessed, but not stupidly. This memoir or whatever -- is very unsatisfying. While the prose is good enough, and the style acceptable, the content and the tone are not. The tone is smug to the point of annoying or more, and the content is confused and irritating. The writer is typically a travel writer and it shows--not in a good way. The story of the memoir is incomplete at best, and at worst the story is so muddled the author herself doesn [...]

    2. "After reading this book, I felt like an emotional tampon." - a discerning amazon reviewerOn the one hand, her writing seems sincere and cathartic, but on the other, she comes off as so obliviously narcissistic that I feel embarrassed for her. She and her inner experience dominate the book; other characters are rough sketches. There are so many mentions of compliments she received about her dancing ("just so you know, this guy ran out after me at a milonga and once this guy stopped to admire my [...]

    3. This is such a "telling" memoir; it reads like a laundry list of people the author danced with as she spiraled into her dark place after a heinous breakup after she has an affair with a fellow tango dancer in California and her boyfriend of 8 years runs off with one of her good friends. She moves to Argentina, finds herself, practices a zen lifestyle, yadda yadda. It had so much potential, but then she jumps from person to person without ever letting us really know who they are. It seems like sh [...]

    4. Camille Cusumano decided she needed a change in her life & ends up in Buenos Aires, Argentina.This is where her lifelong journey of the love of dancing the Tango begins. Not of course without its ups/downs. I have loved music all my life. In the 60’s-beyond I must say I was quite the dancer. I loved clubs we called them. Last time I danced though was at my daughter’s wedding. Never took dance lessons & unfortunately never learned the Tango. Camille puts you in her footsteps & her [...]

    5. Thsi book so clearly wants to be 'Eat, Pray, Tango,' and yet reading this just highlights how well done 'Eat, Pray, Love' really is, and how not well done this book is. Cusumano tells the story of her year in Argentina dancing tango to heal a broken heart, and yet she manages to tell almost no story - you have no sense of any progressing narrative, you don't feel any change happening in her or her world, and perhaps worse of all, you don't have any great sense of tango; while her descriptions of [...]

    6. I really enjoyed the descriptions of Buenos Aires and the content about the dance of the tango. There were so many cultural and artistic insights, that kept me wanting to keep reading. I got a bit annoyed at times by the self absorption (although it is a memoir). Over all there was a lot I liked about this book.

    7. This was such a disappointment. I was really looking forward to reading it - I'd heard a review on the radio. I wanted to go to Argentina and escape into Tango - but I would have preferred another narrator. She was not a character I wanted to read about. And so I stopped midway. And I was embarrassed to have suggested it to book club.

    8. I'm not that interested in tango or zen (2 major focuses of the author), but I am interested in Buenos Aires and relationships. I liked this book. I did skim a bit at parts, but overall, I liked it.

    9. Very similar to Eat, Love, Pray but this time it involves Tango and Argentina (still plenty of meditation). This book is actually a little more cohesive. Sometimes the tango portion of this book got a bit tedious, but for the most part it was a very relatable story.

    10. Definitely an interesting read if you're into Argentine tango. I got a chance to hear Camille talk about the book at an Argentine Tango bootcamp class I went to. Definitely a pleasure hearing her talk and it made the book that much more interesting to read.

    11. Camille Cusumano’s enthusiasm for both tango and Argentina shines, more than making up for the slightly tedious post-mortem of her 15 year relationship. I loved the way she connected dance with zen philosophy.

    12. Very lovely book showing not only tango life but also Buenos Aires and some other places in Argentina. I love the zen way it's written. Thanks to Camille!
