Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would and already have recommended this book to several friends. The story is an emotional and inspiring tale of a boy with an impossible dream....to one day live in the United States! It is an engrossing tale of the incredible determination and perseverance Dr. Hernandez endured to become a legal citizen of this country. It is a touching story of how his older brother took on a fatherhood role and put his own future on the line to get his little brother a chance at the American Dream. To hear this story of how a poor child in a country with limited opportunities fought hard and worked tirelessly to become a very well respected and successful surgeon, brings a sincere emotional response. This book should be required reading for high school and college kids who take the blessings of this country for granted.
What did you like best about this story?
There are so many wonderful, touching elements to this story from hearing Dr. Hernandez describe his initial experiences with food and culture we take for granted to the heartwarming elements of family dedication. Each individual will identify with some element of this story.
What does Edgar H Hernandez, M.D. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
This is read by Dr. Hernandez himself, which creates a stronger connection between the book and the author. To hear the actual author who experienced these emotional highs and lows brings a whole new element that reading it alone cannot.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The American Dream is alive and well!
Any additional comments?
