it was amazing

Recommended for: anybody
Read in March, 2004

Anybody who has ever seen the movie "City of God" and thought it was amazing should read this book. It describes life in the favellas of Brazil, and is one of the few books I've ever read that is truly heartbreaking. Told through a female voice, it's repulsive and beautiful.
