AT THE END OF IT ALL, LOVE CONQUERED THE OLD MAN'S HEART! HOME SWEET HOME IN THIS LITERATURE! GREAT STORY! I GIVE IT THUMBS UP! I HAVE BEEN AMAZED AT THE SORT OF LITERATURE THIS AUTHOR HAS. VERY INSPIRING ALTHOUGH SAD BUT I HOPE READERS HAVE A CHANGE OF HEARTS WHEN READING THIS BOOK! ALL FOR THE SAKE OF TRUE LOVE THAT BROUGHT OLD POP'S BACK HOME ... WHERE HE BELONGS :D LOVED THIS BOOK! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AS IT IS THE BRIEF WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WOA. JUNOT DIAZ HAS GIVEN ME A RUSH OF PUSH IN CHANGING MY OWN MAJOR AT A 4 YR COLLEGE IN WANTING TO BECOME A WRITER MYSELF FOR I TOO HAVE LOTS AND LOTS OF OPENING UP I AM SO EAGER TO OPEN UP TO THAT THE WORLD CANNOT HEAR NOR LISTEN IF IT'S NOT WRITTEN IN BOOKS :D GREAT JOB !

Not as engaging as "This is how you lose her" but still a good read with an interesting perspective. The characters are deeply flawed, yet real people.

We The Animals by Justin Torres is a very engaging novel with complex but nonetheless intriguing language. Torres’ writing style works perfectly with the complicated plot. Throughout the novel, his clever use of rhetoric devices functions to make the story flow and appeal to the reader. It is about 3 brothers who grow up in a bad family dynamic and have to overcome all the struggles. Each brother is different in their own special way and they each have to find a way to survive their upbringing in the best way they know how.
