It's no secret my big love for this book. I don’t know how but it achieves to expel from me foreign feelings, and at the same time it fills me in a way that every time I close my eyes, can’t stop thinking about it. This book gets me. It makes me its friend for a day or two because it is so short, but its aftertaste lingers for weeks.

And how can I love a story about a girl who lacks of identity and doesn’t belong anywhere? Well, for the simple fact that my identity is in scarcity. And as I read

I loved this book! Just like my friend Edhriz, whom I love with all my heart, I laughed with this book. It also opened my eyes to the many different thoughts and impressions of the late 1950's in Puerto Rico. The main character's family has a lot money compared to the average family by that time. The book says they are not rich, but en route, but clearly these people enjoy life with all its commodities and have not seen a day of hunger. I recommend this book to everybody, but especially the peop ...more

Lo lei en la escuela superior y lo volvi a leer. Me encanta porque presenta lo que es ser puertorriqueno. Donde nos ensenan que todo lo "bueno" viene de afuera (Estados Unidos y Europa) y que lo de la isla es "malo". Es triste saber que los mismos puertorriquenos no sabemos nada de nosotros mismos.

Me encontré tan identificada. Yo sé lo que es crecer con una familia de mente cerrada. Sé lo que es la angustia del proceso de formar tus propias opiniones, tu propia identidad, aparte pero muy influenciada por ellos. Sé lo que es estar confundida y sola y no saber quién eres. Sé lo que es vivir sabiendo que no compartes las filosofías más esenciales de tu familia y darte cuenta que, a la hora de la verdad, no importa. Nunca me he enamorado de mi tío, pero leer este libro fue como mirarme en un ...more

A wonderful and accurate description of growing up in Puerto Rico and a beautiful memoir of a time gone. Garcia Ramis uses her memories of a beloved uncle to expose life in the colony. It's a novel but reads like a memoir.

What I enjoyed most about this book was that it gave me a small glimpse into what life in Puerto Rico would be like. It was kind of sad, too. And I saw a lot of the same traditions in that family that I see in my family.

I can't say that I did not like it, but for me it's not a very memorable book.
