Book Review: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar WaoThe Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I can’t quite put my finger on what I disliked about this book. The story was interesting (although it did take some time to get going and was told in a backwards way), and the writing style was one that I normally appreciate (efficient but descriptive). There were even footnotes, and I love footnotes in books! Nevertheless, I was never able to get myself involved in the book and I just kept wanting it to end.
