Yes, I have, especially to my sister-in-law and daughter who, like me, loved "Tortilla Curtain" by T.C. Boyle. It's a different writing style, with somewhat less "pathos", but just as powerful.
I think that I didn't realize Arecelli was going to be so central when I started, but her character development was wonderful and she grew to be one of my most memorable recent characters. The lack of understanding, and misunderstanding, between cultures really stood out and will change the way I look at "the other".
Just very well done.
I don't think I'd be ready for dinner with any of them, although I basically liked all of the main characters. Another great aspect of this story was that none of the main characters were "bad people" or unlikeable people.
