I truly enjoyed this book. I think it would be hard to depict the world in which poor immigrants live when they first come to this country but Mr. Diaz does wonderful job. He also captures the attitude of the Latin male towards sex and the rationalizing used to justify being unfaithful. I liked "Oscar Wao" a little more than this book. The author does use a lot of Spanish and slang words which would require the reader to use a Spanish-English dictionary to fully appreciate some of the passages. I particularly found the section dealing with Rafa, the narrators brother, very moving.
