Santander: Rambling on Borrowed Time by David Ellison (Book Review #740)


Santander is a memoir written about the author’s astonishing life as a gay teacher. He is 36 and has been a mentor, school admin, columnist and has had other important roles. His autobiography comprises his educational background, life experience, schools and the world. His views are from his life understanding and perspective. The book talks about his political and historical interpretations and raises many important issues that should be talked about today.

I particularly enjoyed his view and treatments as a teacher. His ramblings, as he puts it, weren’t many ramblings per se. They were genuine encounters and experiences that were relatable and should be the subject of discussion today.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The literature was easy to read and to understand. His book is segmented into three sections and was very organized. Some humorous parts did lighten up the book as well as provide a not so gloomy life.

I also really liked the cover design for the book. The author demonstrates a beautiful life aside from all the ups and downs he has experienced.

I would recommend this book to people who like to read biographies and memoirs.
