Was The Oracles Successful?
on July 11, 2011
I just finished the book, and I thought it was a good read. I just wish she kept her promise and went back to the Philippines and visited her grandma. I also wish she would have talked a bit more about what happen to her father, that died, and her husband. I feel the Oracle didn't do a good job because she got Pregnant at the age of 20, with the first man she ever really dated and divorce, which I know in the Filipino culture, Filipino's don't believe in divorce. I think this is a story of a child who rebel and won in the end. She got her way. I think her not going back to the Philippines, prove one thing, the war was over and there's was no need to act like it wasn't. I also feel there's a lot missing from this story, like someone trying to tell a story but not the whole story.
