Riveting story. Well told and well narrated.
I don't understand the "buzz" about this book that is touted on the website review. The initial premise is interesting, but once the dilemma is set up, the hero's choices are increasingly absurd and frankly, unbelievable! A frustrating and unsatisfying read.
I couldn't stop listening to this book. "Riveting" is an overused word but it describes this text. The author shares with us a stark, honest exploration of his family's history, dynamics and legacy of his parents' immigrant experience. His prose is clear and engaging, and the story he tells spares no one--least of all himself. This book helps me understand the tremendous price paid by this family of first and second generation immigrants in search of the American dream. And yet, in the end, it's a story of redemption and forgiveness and hope. A brave and healing tale.
