Throughout the book Diaz uses a lot of Spanish phrases that will make this a difficult read if you don't have a reference point, or don't understand Spanish.
I didn't care about any of the characters and found there to be very little of interest overall in the disjointed negative life stories of the characters.
Excellent book from beginning to end. As a Dominican, it was great to read given that he touches on many cultural aspects.Published 22 hours ago by Jamie

I found the story compelling, the protagonist worth every bit of empathy and the insight into the culture of his family and friends entertaining and educational.Published 28 days ago by Judy Loman Umbrico
From beginning to end, this book was spell binding, and soulfully moving. It was a book of unusual magnetism in its vernacular poetry.Published 1 month ago by Ida Tino
