it was amazing
bookshelves: general-fiction
Read from August 30 to September 08, 2011

This story weaves together the stories of two disparate couples; well-to-do liberals living in a gated community in the hills of Los Angeles, and two illegal aliens from Mexico, homeless, poor, and waiting on the birth of their first child. Their paths cross repeatedly as each struggle to come to terms with their lives and their shared world. An excellent read.

Amy I really liked this book too. Maybe I will do a book blog on it....ha ha. I really like how the different issues are dissected. Boyle can be formulaic but still a more than competent writer.

Katrina V. Yeah, it was super good. I also really liked The Road to Wellville, though I read that one when I was a teenager, so I don't remember a whole lot about it. My mom used to know T.C. Boyle. Apparently he was a real weirdo.
