I thoroughly enjoyed it! Kindle-editie, Hardcover, Paperback, Preloaded Digital Audio Player I enjoyed this unusual book. Recommended as has a very true representation of life in the times she tells her story Kindle-editie, Hardcover, Paperback, Preloaded Digital Audio Player Loved the rawness of the story; no cookie cutter characters to fulfill a role. I was with Ana for the entire story. The men are fallible and opportunistic, but so are the women. A story of difficult choices and few good options. The story will stay with you long past the last page. Kindle-editie, Hardcover, Paperback, Preloaded Digital Audio Player This book had been sitting on my bookshelf for nearly a year and I'd not been inspired to pick it up, although I can't really explain why.It was then discussed as a possibility for a book club choice and, although it wasn't chosen, I was intrigued so started to read.I hadn't heard of the author but had bought it originally because of the good reviews and the promise of an immigrant experience which was informative and entertaining.The book has 319 pages split into 6 parts, each of which is further divided into many small chapters some as small as half a page. Quite an unusual format for anything other than crime.The short chapters give a disjointed feel to the flow of narrative which made it feel like a person's thoughts than long chapters full of words. This is written in the first person and Ana never describes anything outside of her limitations, this makes her an very authentic character to read. Ana's experience is a world apart from my own but I connected with her very quickly and unexpectedly.Being an immigrant is tough and this lifestyle is explored from many angles whilst staying rooted in Ana's experience. We see the political, economic, health and social influences but there is always a person at the centre of everything which makes this story very relatable.The story is full of danger, grime, poverty and sadness but these are swept away by the beauty and hope that seems to influence everyone's actions.All of the characters are wonderful and are always well intentioned even if they often do bad things.Ana deals with the many problems in her life she plans, processes and makes decisions then she copes with whatever happens. That tenacity is just one of the many reasons to care about Ana. Kindle-editie, Hardcover, Paperback, Preloaded Digital Audio Player
