If you are in the mood for male angst. Unique voice, great accomplishment.

Very interesting set of intertwined short stories. Language and settings more suitable for an older audience.

Certainly these short stories are very well written, but why celebrate infidelity and this aspect of Dominican culture?

Awesome read! I was captivated from the first chapter. A little vulgar but it makes the whole story come to life. The Spanish inserts as well make you feel the culture around Yunior. Not a male read at all women to should read it too, gives humorous insight to the sexual mindset of a man

I read Oscar Wao and from there wanted to read the rest of Diaz' works. I will say although the language was vulgar I thought it suited the context it was in. I'm a woman by the way and I didnt find it a book only males would be interested in. To me it never seemed like Yunior celebrated his ways and I thought it was great that all of his actions displayed the the awful consequences that followed. I really liked the book !!

Junot Diaz's latest returns to the familiar territory of his debut short story collection, "Drown." These are earthy, sometimes vulgar stories of love, sex and all the ways it can go wrong. I agree with one of the commentators, that it's a very male book and you won't find many well-drawn female characters in hear. Then again, the male characters are pretty shallow too. The final story is the strongest. I preferred his novel.

This collection of interconnected stories gets better and better as you go on. When you finish the last story, you feel like you're parting with someone you have known for a long time.
