Caramelo by Sandra Cisneros

Blah.

That sums up this book. Don’t get me wrong, it had some really amazing parts, but it had more than a few really, truly dismal sections.

I basically skimmed the last 150 pages. I’d been reading it since December, and if it wouldn’t have been a loan from a friend, and if it wouldn’t have been good for the first 100 pages and then went crappy for the last 300, I would have given it up.

I’m not even sure what to say. I guess the moral is this: The past influences the future, and because of this fact, we can never escape from who we are because we’ve been created by our ancestors. Trying to break the molds of the past is our destiny.

If this book would have been about half the size it actually is, it would have been wonderful.
