Gary Soto tells a great story about poverty, violence, and the struggles that one goes through in life. he does this in a very artistic way by including heaps of metaphoric language that presents the reader/listener with detailed imagery. This is definitely an influence of Soto's time writing poetry.
That said, he doesn't put his home town in any form of positive light. he makes the Central Valley of California seem like a place no one would want to live, and that is a bit of a shame.
Thee preformance by the narrator was quite good. He does a good job of going through a book that has Spanish words and phrases in it.
loved the book. needed it for English 51ALO1. easy to follow along with. Robert Ramirez did great with narration!!
