's review

it was amazing

For me personally, The Children of Sanchez is a book about humanity. It shows us the positiveness and its opposite; selfishness and broad loves; violence and kindness; greed and satisfaction; falling and dreaming; slyness and integrity; weakness and brevity; pride and humbleness, etc. It becomes harder and harder for one to be judgmental to any character in the book, or to anyone we know of in real life for that matter. Who are we to judge people at the end of the day? We can never know what is in one's mind unless we are completely in his or her shoes.

It saddens me though to see repeatedly how people could only afford to make limited choices with only so many limited options to choose from in the first place under their circumstances.
