Final Blog – Bye Bye

I never really thought what I was going to write for my final blog. I knew that time was ticking and as usual I have waited for the last minute to write it. I don’t have a particular order in which I’m writing this final blog but I am going to start from the very beginning. As […]

A Song For A Barbarian Reed Pipe

I really enjoyed this section just really felt bad for Maxine. Imagine being told from her mother that she cut her tongue, “She pushed up my tongue up and sliced the frenum. Or maybe she snipped it with a pair of nail scissors. I don’t remember her doing it, only her telling me about it. ” […]

Shaman and At the Western Palace

Blog : comment on the enormous difference in Maxine’s mother in these two sections? In these two sections I consider Maxine’s mother to be very independent in her way of thinking and beliefs in women’s rights. Independent in Shaman and women’s rights in At the Wester Palace. The two stories were very different from each […]

No Name Woman and White Tigers

Another great read so far :). I knew this book was going to be interesting because just like Drown by Junot Diaz, it is made up of short stories. Both No Name Women and White Tigers were very enjoyable and showed me a part of Maxine’s life that was very insightful. She is a women warrior […]

Dreams From my Father – Political Yes!

Yes Yes Yes! This book was definitely written to support Obama’s personal political ambition. What politician now a day tells the truth? Even though it is insisted that this book was not made to help Barack Obama during his political career, then why didn’t he take out this book back then. I know many people […]

Dreams From My Father – not a fan

To be honest I came into reading Dreams From My Father very negatively. Even though it is mentioned that it’s an autobiographical book and was not used for political exposure,  that’s a lie. I knew from day one it was going to be used for political reasoning. I’m not much into politics, I should be but […]

The Ending of Drown

To be honest, I enjoyed the first half of Drown more then the ending. Although it did have two good stories, “Boyfriend” and “How To Date A Browngirl, Blackgirl, Whitegirl, or Halfie”, I enjoyed a couple more stories in the beginning. I felt that they were more personal and had some more meaning. Maybe it’s just me. […]

Drown by Junot Diaz

I LOVE this book. I guess I might be cheating since its my 2ND time reading this book but it’s still as enjoyable as the first. It’s edgy, different and at times very inappropriate, which I love. Junot Diaz, being the recognize writer he is, also has another best seller called The Brief Wondrous Life […]
