great, emotional

Very insightful book about the lives of the people in Haiti on a personal level. the stories are somewhat sad and disheartening but the author has great purpose in writing the book. Very good narration also.

I like the narrator

But the stories are forgettable. I wanted to like it but I just didn't find anything to like...but the narrator.
