I thought Junot Diaz did an incredible job narrating his book. I enjoyed reading about Dominican culture as seen through the eyes of different age groups and sexes.
I love short stories, but I don't think I have read anything that I could compare to this.
Loved the inclusion of Spanish/Dominican slang.
This book hit a very personal note for me. My mother suffered from dementia. She passed away this year and this book was actually comforting. I could really relate to the relationship the author had with her mother and thought the book was very well written and not overly sentimental.
The relationship between mother and daughter.
It felt her performance was very genuine and engaging.
Cherish the love of the people who mean the most to you.
