The first time I read Aztec was in the 80’s and I loved the book. So far I have read this book about 6 times. Recommended to many people and gave as a present in printed an electronic format.

Mr. Jennings trilogy (Aztec, Aztec Blood and Aztec Autumn) give us a very good understanding about life in pre Colombian life in Mexico, what happened during the conquest, and how life was in the New Spain during the Spanish Colony. Using a very interesting narrative splashed with some sexual stories (if you get offended by those stories, please feel free to skip those; if you like the steamy stories, be sure to mark those to go back and read them at your leisure…)

Back in the early 80’s I meet Dr. Eduardo Matos Moctezuma (a prominent Mexican archaeologist. Who directed excavations at the Templo Mayor) at a book store in Mexico City. After I congratulated him for his great article in Scientific American about The Great Temple of Tenochtitlán (August 1984 ) I asked Dr. Matos if he had read Mr. Garry Jennings’s book Aztec. He said yes!

And I asked his opinion; he said: obviously the fictitious main character Mixtly, never existed; however, seem that Mr. Jennings did a good job researching the Aztecs life and it is full of details of the life at the time.

I can say that Mr. Gary Jennings started my interest in history. Too bad that I never meet him…
I'm glad I read this book for the first time 20+ years ago, before there was online reviews. I went in to this book with absolutely no expectations.
I was blown away.
This book made me laugh, cry, ponder, get shocked, get angry and get sad when it was over. I couldn't wait to get home from work every day to to dive into Mixtli's world. I'd fall asleep reading it and sneak in a couple of pages before getting out of bed. I had no idea if it was historically accurate nor did I care.
This book transported me right into that world...and what a magnificent world it was. I was all pleased with myself when places, gods and names became familiar to me and I no longer had to shuffle back to the original introduction to look up who was who.
Like most people, I could've lived without all the gratuitous sex scenes. As a 20 year old girl reading this book for the first time, a lot of it was ridiculous or seemingly physically impossible. But it didn't change the fact that it's one of the best books I've ever read. You can always skip a couple pages to avoid the sex, lol.
Actually, I'd be hard-pressed to say that I've since enjoyed a book as much as Aztec. I reread it every few years, it feels like visiting an old friend.
I so wish that there was a Kindle version. Although I have done it many times, it would be nice not to fall asleep on top of this very large hardcover book,lol. It makes unpleasant dents on your skin. A kindle version would the cherry on top.
Gary Jenning's Aztec is my favorite book of all time. I first read it about a decade ago, and have reread it numerous time since, and it gets better every time. I recommend it to everyone looking for a book recommendation and I have bought several copies to gift to people. The story is epic, beautiful spun, and easy to read (well, except for maybe the bits written in the voice of the priest, those can be pretty verbose with some impressive vocabulary). Its an exciting page turner about the entire life of the main character Mixtli, ranging from his young childhood to his old age while also informing the reader about many aspects of Aztec life and it was well- researched and historically accurate.

One thing to note is that this is not a standard sized paperback - its a rather long book, but well worth it. If you like long epic stories definitely give this one a try

One word of caution, there is a lot of blood, sex and violence in this book, so if you are easily offended it might not be for you, but if you love that stuff you'll love this book. I'd say its a "Game of Thrones" level of sex and violence

This is the first and only book that ever made me scream at it in frustration because I thought the main character was doing something so boneheaded. I actually yelled out loud at a book. In public.

The book is told both as a set of letters and in the first person, though the first person narrative takes up the majority of the work. The main character's journey takes him through the various strata of Aztec culture and, while I am no student of the Aztec civilization, it is rendered in living color and is really beautiful to behold. The characters are as human as you or I and by the end I was just wanted the story to continue onward.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is engrossing, entertaining, and a hefty number of pages so it should keep you in reading comfort for quite some time.
Better people than me have reviewed this book in literary detail. I just have to say that sometimes I look back on having read it and I actually miss the book. I want to look again at the maps drawn on the inside cover pages. By the time I finished reading it, I felt like I WAS an Aztec, so rich and complete and detailed was the narrative.
