    Epub Pocho PDF/EPUB ê ✓ weplayit.co pocho epub, Pocho KindleWHAT is this book? It starts like Bless Me Última or a Mexican American Last Picture Show a funny serious tale of a smarter than average outsider boy who comes of age in an isolated town in a moment of exceptional national turmoil with lots of talk of people's genitals Then at about the midpoint it abruptly becomes serious tragic like zombie movie a smarter than average teenager wandering lost as his culture town family and friendships disintegrate around him The blurb on the back of the book says it is about the Depression but is that all? Pocho seems to me a book about prejudice and oppression More than once the narrator observes that people naturally want to dominate other people that Spanish colonists were low ran

    Epub Pocho PDF/EPUB ê ✓ weplayit.co pocho epub, Pocho KindlePocho was a little journey through American Mexican history But for such a little book too much was packed into it The character stories were disintegrated It started out with Pocho's dad and his lover and then it suddenly jumped to his life with his wife and the birth of Pocho And since the author tried to cover so mucb ground the book read like a newspaper report covering the events in Pocho's life Too much was told little was left for the reader to experience himself by partaking in Pocho's life Too many characters crossed Pocho's path and as soon as I got into their stories the abruptly ended and someone

    Epub Pocho PDF/EPUB ê ✓ weplayit.co pocho epub, Pocho KindleThis was a random find I bought at a used book store and I have to say this wasn’t what I expectedThere were some scenes that were fantastic in understanding the oppression of Mexicans who want a better life and other scenes I unfortunately could not relate to mainly because this book was for Chicanos than Chicanas but really a fascinating read💚

    Epub Pocho PDF/EPUB ê ✓ weplayit.co pocho epub, Pocho Kindle25 stars? There were parts of it that I really enjoyed and were wonderfully written But there are times I didn't uite understand the point of Richard's story It's written in vignettes You see short episodes of Richard's life as he's growing up but some things don't uite connect with others It's like things just WERE and sad to say I'm just not a huge fan of that kind of writing Plus I HATED the way he treated Zelda I wanted to see of his internal conflict as a Mexican American
