The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Díaz

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Diaz

This book had been recommended to me over and over but I kept putting it off. Now I understand why everybody wanted me to read it.



This book shows you the life of Oscar and his family in a very special, latinamerican way, with passion, fury, magic and resignation. It truly felt as if I was reading a modern, 2.0 version of Gabriel García Marquez's work. And I love García Marquez so you'll understand my happiness lol

What really intrigued me is how good english-speaking people can understand this book because it's mostly in spanglish and it has entire phrases in spanish. For me it was easy because I that is my native language and I also speak English, but I know not many english-speaking people speak spanish. Did any of you have any problems with it?


Well, in the end it was a fast, fun, entertaining and heart breaking book and I'm very glad I finally read Junot Diaz's work because I want to read everything else he's written :
