Reviews - What do customers think about One Tribe (AWP Award Series in the Novel) (Awp Award Series in the Novel)?
A Great, Thought-Provoking Novel Dec 9, 2006
One Tribe is a unique novel. Galang shows empathy in her portrayal of her very diverse characters, making all of them involving and complex. The book's scope is impressive in showing the multifaceted pressures facing both the main character, Isabel, and various teenagers in their individual adjustments, parental expectations, their need to define themselves as well as to feel connected to others. Sharply drawn characters, interlocking themes of individuality in the context of group dynamics, family, clashing perspectives, and the desire for personal freedom and for love and friendship make this a special book. Galang's writing is filled with powerful images that create striking pictures in the mind of readers.
You've got to read it! May 25, 2006
This is the kinda book that once you start reading it, it's really hard to stop. The interweaving of the voices of Isabel, the kids, Jojo, Elliot, Ferdi and the parents each create their own full character such that I could even imagine what their facial expressions might be. As I went through pages filled with the voices of these characters, their common goals, their struggles with one another and the development of each of the characters themselves, it was amazing to watch the "One Tribe" and the interweavings of this community be brought to life via the page. The book also puts a non-mainstream perspective of the FilAm community and it's history at the forefront of the novel. I loved how the very same interweaving of characters who made this community spoke to the generational conflicts of many communities.
