This type of book was worked in an epic style about the main events of the Conquest, from its beginning until the fall of Tenochtitlan, and other happenings that followed in this conquest. One of the criticisms that Bernal Diaz del Castillo has by my point of view is that he never learned to speak indigenous languages and yet is able to describe whole dialogs indigenous from the first day he stepped on the continent. Some of the chapter, he mentioned “Well, I will not continue describing this.” For that reason, many people describe the author as a simple to writer. So, I imagine him that this book was wrote while he was talking about what he saw in the conquest and he was writing while he was thinking about that.
