did not like it

** spoiler alert ** The Namesake is about a kid named Gogol who complains about his name and is a wannabe American. I personally don't like this book at all. It's so typical and predictable. It makes me sad reading it. The only reason I gave it one star was because there was some drama when his wife had an affair with her high school crush. The book ends with him acknowledging his roots and being content with his name Gogol. There is a movie for it too.
