Have you ever read a book and wish you wrote it? A book so poetic that you want to seek out the author and ask, "how the heck did you do it?" Torres makes this shit look easy.
Well, that exactly how I felt after reading We the Animals by Justin Torres. Torres talks about his troubled childhood in Brooklyn to an Puerto Rican alcoholic father and mental unstable White mother, not fitting in with his 2 older brothers and dealing with homosexuality. This book isn't for everyone but I liked the author's writing style. It's written like a memoir but the author says it's a work of fiction. I don't believe him though.
This is one of those books that you would need to read a few times to appreciate (and understand) everything. I liked it.
