Ight year old Luca soon find themselves miles and worlds away from their comfortable middle class existence Instantly transformed into migrants Lydia and Luca ride la bestia trains that make their way north toward the United States which is the only place Javier’s reach doesn’t extend As they join the countless people trying to reach el norte Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something But what exactly are they running I doubt there is a single person here on Goodreads that has not heard at least a hint of the controversy surrounding this book I m also confident that nearly every reader has at least a basic idea of the synopsis of American Dirt So I m not really touching either of those elements in my review I am a white woman living in upstate New York thousands of miles from Mexico I have no real personal experience regarding the Mexican migrant issue and therefore cannot speak to whether or not author Jeanine Cummins writes a genuine representation of the crisis or not I don t even dare to attempt to do so What I can write about however is my own reading experience of this novel First of all I was super excited to pick up this book I lovingly cataloged it at my library when it first arrived I put my name first on the list to get it on publication day After all it was hailed as a new American classic and was compared to the masterpiece The Grapes of Wrath Naturally this did give me pause because both are tall orders to fill Could this proclamation be true And it s such a relevant topic I need to read this book I like to learn something when I read Even if a book is labeled as fiction I hope to garner some useful information regarding the topic surrounding a group of fictional characters I want to feel as if I am in the shoes of a character or two understanding what they are enduring for this short period of time we are together To my disappointment I was completely underwhelmed by American Dirt It was far too melodramatic for my taste It starts with a big bang right from page one But for me it was too much It seemed to be forced in order to provide the catalyst for the rest of the novel an extravagant attempt to try to gain my sympathy I felt an instant disconnection from the characters I tried to remain hopeful about accompanying Lydia and Luca on their harrowing journey through Mexico towards their one glimmer of hope the United States And there were scenes that were charged with danger Naturally I hoped this pair and their fellow migrants would survive the risks One additional thing that bothered me throughout some characters were just not believable I couldn t help but think repeatedly would so and so really act or speak this way in this situation One example would be too wise beyond his years eight year old Luca I was further bothered by what seemed like an abundance of clich s For example the beautiful teenaged girl from Honduras the threat of rape menaced her at every turn Why not the arguably less stunning but perhaps still attractive mother of a little boy Would not any migrant woman be at risk from such danger I guess what I m trying to say is that the characters were like cut outs in my opinion I missed the depth of characterization that I find so appealing in my favorite kind of novel It doesn t help that while reading this one I also had the pure pleasure of another book that really did tick off all the boxes including nuanced characters eually relevant social and political issues and perilous situations I wouldn t tell anyone they should not read this book If it at all interests you by all means pick it up and make your own judgments For me the writing was mediocre and I was disappointed to remain a far removed observer None of the thousands of miles separating my home from the Mexican border were diminished after finishing the last page But I truly hope it does get people talking about an extremely important issue The best way to read this would be with a buddy so you can bounce ideas off one another I may not have made it to the end otherwise muito obrigada Pedro I will continue my uest to become educated on the topicFor an engaging write up of this book please visit my buddy s review here
