"This highly engaging story subtly plays on our consciences, forcing us to form, confirm, or dispute social, political, and moral viewpoints. This is a profound and tragic tale, one that exposes not only a failed American Dream, but a failing America." (Booklist)
The woman who reads this book was annoying to listen to -- to say the least. I could hear her continually swallowing and making various smacking sounds. I found myself thinking about how I couldn't stand to listen to her (but had to because it was for a class reading assignment) more than listening to the story. Appears author used his thesaurus frequently also annoying... you'll understand when you start listening. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.
No I wouldn't. The narrator was not good.
The story was good. The life of undocumented workers shows how terrible people and their hatred of people because of race can affect how they are treated. The story shows just how both sides can be as bad as the other.
The fact that the narrator keeps taking loud breaths throughout the story was very distracting.
