    Cherisse's review of the book

    The book had some really tragic stories in it which made it really interesting to read. Some of the stories were boring and hard in understanding the importance of it being in the book. What made the book confusing was that there were too many different types of stories in it but overall it was okay.

    Delightful or Horrible

    This book has inspired many young women to look at their life and be thankful for what they have in front of them. It is insightful on the history in Haiti and the dramatic effects it has had on its people. From generation to generation these women have been subjected to the maltreatment of the Haitian men. As the book goes on the title Krik! Krak? really seems to be appliant to the novel. All in all the book was more delightful than horrible.

    Krik Krak

    krik krak was a great book if u wanted to know about the history of Haitin women and what they went through during the time when Haiti and Dominican Republic were at war. Its very painful to read all these cruel things that were dont to them but yet very satisfying to read how they tried to over come all their trials and tribulations.They kept strong or at least tried to anyway.When you read this book you will get to know the things that women had to go through, that you may have not know before.I think that everyone she take sometime out of their days to sit down and read this book they might learn a thing or two.

    Good book showing the hard ships of haitin woman

    Edwindge Danticat gives a great book filled with tales and stories showing the hardships that haitian woman went through in the hard times in haiti. Many of the stories were exreamly harsh for the woman, but the woman stay storng and show that they are alot stonger than the over powering men think. all of the stories have a long distent conection to each other, and all of them explore different types of problems. all of the stories are each very different from each other. because of this the book gives u many different views and opinons and this is good. It allowed me to connect with the woman of this book and feel their pain.
