    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.

    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.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Overall

    Truly, this is offensive garbage.

    If you like inane drivel, if you relish pointless inquiry into Swedish family lore, if you enjoy sadistic violence against women with no thematic point, if you applaud when the "bad guy" actually gushes his evil plan to the waiting hero (!) . . . then you might just like this book.

    Maybe.

    Pity those who give this book a positive review, they know not literature.
