Poignant story of brilliant, nerdy, overweight youth with literary ambitions and ever unrequited loves, his Dominican family and friends amid the political history of his native country, all brought to life by this fresh, funny, talented author.

I liked this book slightly more than his other book, mostly because I thought the short story format was better for the story he was trying to convey. I still found that his writing style was a little bit over dramatized and occasionally the stories were frustrating to read. Again, I'd recommend it to people who speak spanish more than I would to people who don't, though he uses less "spanish at critical moments" in this book than he does in Oscar Wao.

This book was okay because it was written in a cool style and reasonable fast paced. The plot wasn't really impressive, and the constant use of Spanish phrases that I didn't know was really frustrating. I would only recommend it if you speak Spanish.

My feelings on this book are complicated but also super easy to explain: I think it's probably brilliant for a lot of readers, I think Diaz is a fantastic writer, and I completely understand all of his techniques, and I think they are used masterfully... but I didn't enjoy it at all.

Which is just to say, this book and I are not compatible. I think it is very good if it suits.
