On the back of this book it says that this book has been read by thousands of students at universities and high schools across the nation. I’ve never even heard of it, so I figured I should join the popular kids and pick it up. The House on Mango Street is a quick read (only 110 pages) and started out strong. But as the book went on I felt myself loosing interest. It was a bit of a struggle to finish. Nonetheless, I would still recommend reading it. After all, 110 pages isn’t that hard to commit to right?
