    Things have never been easy for Oscar, a sweet but disastrously overweight, lovesick Dominican ghetto nerd. Oscar dreams of becoming the Dominican J. R. R. Tolkien and, most of all, of finding love. But he may never get what he wants, thanks to the Fuku: the curse that has haunted Oscar's family for generations, dooming them to prison, torture, tragic accidents, and, above all, ill-starred love. Oscar, still waiting for his first kiss, is just its most recent victim.

    Robert says: "Wondrous Book!!!"
    "A True Masterwork, Must Listen"
    Overall

    This amazing book blew the roof off the house, and made other pretenders look like amateurs.

    Diaz has huge ambition, and he delivers with every page. Upon finishing this sprawling, inventive, tour de force, I was not once bit surprised to find that it had won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize.

    Do not be put off by some of the absurd and ridiculous comments posing as review. Some people shouldn't write about things they don't understand.

    Strap yourself in and get ready for a ride with a master behind the wheel.
