La brève et merveilleuse vie d'Oscar Wao

La brève et merveilleuse vie d'Oscar Wao - Junot Diaz More like 3 and 1/2 stars. I liked the historical notes, the geeky/sci-fi book, movie and games references. I liked Lola and her grand-mother. I felt the outside narrator, Yunior, was sometimes difficult to side with. Too many point of views led sometimes to confusion as to who was narrating the story. Maybe too many strings of narrative that didn't totally mesh together but it worth reading and transcend the atrocious, horrible French translation.
