Today it's time for another book review! This time I'm talking about The Tortilla Curtain by T.C.Boyle, which I had to read for my English class.
The book shows a lot of details in the story, and it all was described very well. However, I did not enjoy it too much, some parts were too gross for my liking, all this talking about excrements and abuse was simply disgusting. Also some parts very just not interesting to me, how can so much fuss be made about a dog for example? This might not make sense to you if you haven't read it, but it doesn't matter really.
Also, I wasn't able to see so much of a "intersection" of the main characters' worlds apart from a few incidents, that was disappointing.
What I also didn't like was the end, how can a book just go on boringly for 300 pages and then on the last couple there's a kind of show down that ends right in the middle of it? Don't think a book can have more of an open end!
I found the book okay, but not all that great. To be honest, if I'd been able to choose whether to read it or not, I wouldn't have read it. It's just not my kind of book!
And I'm supposed to add that my best friend also didn't like it, she explicitly wanted me to tell you :D
Has anyone of you read it?
