    PDF/EPUB Angie Cruz Ì Soledad A Novel Kindle ☆ Soledad A eBook æ Ì soledad free, novel book, Soledad A mobile, Soledad A Novel PDF/EPUBEdit I have re read and taught this book many times in the nine years since I wrote the review below and upon reflection I think I am wrong about this book and it is better than I gave it credit for Maybe one day I will re write this review but for now I think it can be safely ignored and I pumped it up by one starMy biggest beef with this book is not so much the book itself but the pull uotes and excerpts from reviews all of which seem to hone in on the magical realist aspects of the narrative when really there is really only one scene that can be called magical realist and it is near the end and kind of heavy handed and doesn't really add much to the book at all It feels like since Angie Cruz is a Latina writer then her work has to be categorized that way in order to put it in the neighborhood of the only Latino writer anyone ever really takes seriously Gabriel Garcia Marue

    PDF/EPUB Angie Cruz Ì Soledad A Novel Kindle ☆ Soledad A eBook æ Ì soledad free, novel book, Soledad A mobile, Soledad A Novel PDF/EPUBWhat I find the most compelling part's of Angie Cruz's novel is not the prose or magical realist elements but its extremely accurate caricature of NYC The funniest and truest description of West Manhattan I wouldn't describe it as magical realist so much as having a dream motif The lyrical ending doesn't uite flow with the rest of the novel but it doesn't spring up from nowhereA novel eually about sexuality

Such was my experience when reading Soledad It wasn’t exactly the same as my life but the characters and how the characters react to their situations were familiar“It’s always like that just when I think I don’t give a shit about what my family thinks they find a way to drag me back home”Cruz had me at the first sentence and I find that weird I knew from reading that sentence that I would enjoy the story and that I would find it hard to pull away from it for long Why is that? How can some authors pull me in from so early in the story while others can’t? Is it a matter or style or voice? I’d really like to puzzle this outThe narrator’s voice drew me into the story The story is told in firs
