The tale of outcast Oscar Wao told in relation to his mother, his sister and his sister’s boyfriend. Mostly set in the Dominican Republic and later in New York and New Jersey. Lot’s of spanish in book that I didn’t get, but a good story and interesting reading about the craziness of Dominican Republic under Trujillo.
PJH Rating: Four stars

I loved this book…wasn’t exactly a beach read though – which was my location while living through Oscar and his family, and friends.
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book, I remember it was all the rage when Oscar Wao was published. I really should pick it up sometime.
