What made the experience of listening to My American Dream the most enjoyable?

This was a timely book about an immigrant experience to the United States. The author's narration made it even more interesting.

What other book might you compare My American Dream to and why?

I would compare this book to Threading My Prayer Rug. Both books were narrated by the authors who came to the U.S. and made a life here.

Which scene was your favorite?

So many amazing scenes ... the descriptions of living in the refuge camp for 2 years awaiting authorization to immigrate to the US were heart-wrenching but at the same time filled with patience and love.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was too long to listen to in one sitting, but a book to look forward to getting back to as soon as possible.

Any additional comments?

My American Dream is a timely thought provoking immigrant story. The author’s well done narration gives the book a personal touch. Chef and restaurateur Lidia Bastianich describes her journey as a young girl with her family through their immigrant experience to the present day; a reminder that the United States is truly a melting pot.
