Interesting Story, but a cumbersome read.
I found Dreaming in Cuban to be a cumbersome effort to read. Almost from the start I was beginning to lose track of the characters and I was beginning to
think that I would need a score card to keep track of who was who. In this novel the author did create interesting scenes that centers around the Cuban family, and culture but there were so many loose ends when I finished reading the book that the overall story just didn't connect with me. It's not a terrible read, maybe just an entertaining story.

Oh my god this book is absolutely terrible. I'm only 16 and you old fucks probably think I can't appreciate the qualities of this book but I do enjoy reading and this book is definitely one of the worst I have ever read. Thanks for reading this I hope I may have saved someone's conscience from reading this crap.
