Sad, interesting story about Haitian immigrants and those they leave behind. Very thought provoking. Beautifully written -- lovely language and believeable characters.

If you've liked Danticat's other books, you'll love this one. Interesting premise, really pushes you to think about the personal v. the political and the nature (& limitations) of forgiveness. This is my favorite of her books, but still not quite my cup of tea.

Great story with rich characters. Danticat reveals the history of the father character slowly as we understand the social-environment and other related characters. Well written. Good read! susan

The Dew Breaker (torturer) moved from Haiti to Brooklyn. This is a wonderful story of love, remorse, and hope as well as political rebellions. Fast read.

Confusing. The stories were not woven together for the reader to make connections between the characters.

The Dew Breaker has quite a complex storyline with many different players who make their appearances sporadically throughout. Not to mention, the narrator switches back and forth from present day events to memories. At times, I was confused enough to flip through the pages I've previously read. I think its like one of those movies you don't truly understand until you've seen the whole thing a couple of times. But I would be willing to get it from my public library if someone else would like to trade for this one.

I haven't actually read it. According to the flap, this book is about redemption and coming to terms with one's past.
