This book is simply a joy to read. You feel as though you're experiencing everything that Esperanza is experiencing. Sandra Cisneros is a marvelous novelist (as she is a poet) and all of her talent comes rushing through in this novel. Once you begin reading, you will not be able to stop!

I loved this book from the moment I read the first page. I could relate to it on so many levels. I read it in Spanish first and then in English, and I can truely say that it is one of my favorite books ever. Esperanza's experience were so real. I could relate being of Latin American decent. It is a very heartwarming book. If you want a good read, pick this book up, whether you read it in Spanish or English you will get the full affect.

Si deciendes de una clase pobre y eres Hispano, te aseguro que conoces a muchos de los personajes en este libro. Es una lectura maravillosa sin malgasto de palabras.

I didn't like this book. This book was the worst book Ihave ever read. The book was about nothing. There was no plot to the story at all.
