    Woman Hollering Creek Review

    Woman Hollering Creek, by Sandra Cisneros, is a book of short stories told from the viewpoint of what seems to be multiple different people. The beginnings of the stories tell of times when the narrators were little girls, who they were friends with, what their environments were like. The stories persist into adolescence, where the multiple characters tell of hard times they¿d had. Finally, a few longer stories ended the book by telling of husbands and family and children and trials of adulthood. The stories are all told from the viewpoints of women growing up in a Hispanic culture, and while they share that one fact, each short story still manages to differ from all the rest. All the women have different personalities and opinions, meaning if you switched characters from stories, the stories would have to rewrite themselves. While some stories are a bit mature, Sandra Cisneros did an excellent job of capturing the minds of multiple people within her own in her book Woman Hollering Creek.

    not really that interesting...

    Don't get me wrong. Some of the stories were good especially the onces from childhood. But most of them dragged on and eventually became boring. It was interesting enough for me to finish it but I was glad the book was over. I really don't have much to say about it. I guess if your into really poetic short-stories this might be for you. None of them really had a plot. If you want an example of a good short story read 'The Lesson 'by Toni Cade Bombara and 'the story of an hour' by kate Chopin.

    Great Stories

    I loved the book! The stories gave an insight to the lives and situations of the characters. These female characters expressed the latino culture in many different situations and gave the image of women having strong and weak characters. I suggest you read this book.

    Interesting

    The stories included in this collection are very diverse. It is written to appeal largely to a bilingual audience, but if you're not a Spanish speaker, don't worry- she reiterates everything in English. In the opening pages I wondered whether the author was not rather ill-educated, but as it turns out the narrative voice changes with each story, and Cisneros herself is actually quite brilliant. A word of warning to my fellow light-skinned readers: only read this if you don't mind being insulted from time to time.
