    Outstanding!

    This is by far one of Danticat's best. A haunting tale about Haiti and a man's destructive past that follows him to New York. This novel helps put present day Haiti in perspective. Danticat is a wonderful Griot who can pull anyone into her narratives.

    A beautiful, painful and ultimately rewarding book

    Much like Tim O'Brien's THE THINGS THEY CARRIED, this book lingers in that nebulous hinterland between short story and novel where few writers have the gumption or the ability to tread. Each chapter is a self-contained story, with divergent and seemingly random settings--Haiti in the dictatorial 1960s, Manhattan in the 1970s, Brooklyn and Queens in the 21st century. And yet slowly, irrevocably, the reader is drawn into the shared love, the shared remorse, the shared history, the shared hope, the shared rebellions--both personal and political--that circle round this unassuming man...this husband...this father...this friend...this torturer...this dew breaker. About three-quarters of the way into THE DEW BREAKER I couldn't see myself giving it anything more than 3-1/2 or 4 stars. This is a book that rewards patience, one whose ultimate purity is not realized until the very last sentence, when that 'pendulum between regret and forgiveness' swings one last time. Given what's going on even as we speak in the island nation of Haiti, THE DEW BREAKER's timeliness is nearly as haunting as Ms. Danticat's prose. Maybe this isn't a book for everyone...but it should be. Postscript: I bought the audio edition of THE DEW BREAKER after I read the print book. For those of you who find yourself tripping over some of the Creole dialect in print, try the audio. The narrator, Robin Miles, is an extraordinary talent.

    Dewdrop's Dream - Part Four

    "No. Just... No." Bramblefur stared at her unbelievingly. Dewdrop didn't want to believe it, but she new she was right. There would be a battle, and she and Bramblefur would die.
    "We have to avoid it. I will not die yet. I'm too young," he meowed. He began pacing back and forth across the cool pine needles.
    Dewdrop felt numb. She was a new warrior. How could she die so soon? She had worked so hard to get - and keep - her position as a respected warrior. She always fought on the winning side, and she never came close to dying. Never.
    A screech interrupted her thoughts. Cats were fighting! She listened for a second. The noise was coming from the ThunderClan border.
    "Come on!" She dashed through the forest, Bramblefur quick on her paws. They raced toward the sound of the battle, trees flashing by as the quickend their pace. Soon they arrived to see bloodstained grass and corpses, with the few remaining cats fighting on a hill. "Call reinforcements!" she called to Bramblefur. He nodded and streaked away.
    Dewdrop plunged down the hill, running as fast as she could toward the battle. She leapt onto an orange tabby - ThunderClan's deputy, Flamefrost - and began tearing at her sides with unsheathed claws. Flamefrost yowled and turned on her, swiping for her throat. Dewdrop ducked and sank her teeth into Flamefrost's back. Warm, salty liquid filled her mouth, and she swallowed against the blood. Her muzzle was stained red.
    The cats fought until a silvery moon rose in a sky of black velvet. Bramblefur had returned, bringing most of ShadowClan with him. They had sprung into the battle, unsheathed claws glinting as the sun's last bleeding rays disappeared under the horizen.
    Dewdrop was exhausted, but kept fighting. She had a belly wound that seeped blood and sapped her strength, but she kept going.
    She fixed her gaze on a huge black tomcat with glinting yellow eyes. She ran toward him as fast as she could go, leaving a glitteribg red trail of blood in her wake. She avoided stepping on corpses as she pounded towards her target.
    The tom turned just as she reached him, claws glinting with blood as he slashed his paw toward her throat. The last thing she saw before she closed her eyes and Bramblefur's eyes as his neck was ripped out, begging her to save him.

    EXCELLENT!!!!

    A well written insight into the life and times of ordinary Haitians, residing in Haiti and those exiled in the USA, during the brutal Duvalier dictatorship. A collection of interelated short stories with well developed interesting characters and poetic imagery that brings the near truth story to life. A great read. Once started I could not put in down until the end.

    Not a huge fan of the format!

    Although I learned a lot about Haitian history in this book, I really didn't like the format. It doesn't come together until the end, and all the while, I was very confused! Each chapter seems like a separate short story. Very little character development too.

    Open your mind!

    This is a book I feel you must read in one or two sittings. One you must finish right away. A story within stories. After reading this the title will haunt me...disgust me. This is a story that obviously won't appeal to everyone. You can see that in the reviews of this book. All I can say is if you liked BREATH, EYES, MEMORY as I did, I think you'd like this. You also learn a little from this book. First you'll learn what a DEW BREAKER is and a little about Haiti. Open your mind and take this trip.

    OK

    The beggining was great and it was hard to put away that book. But close to the end I actually had to force myself to finish it. Too many characters were described at the same time which was hard to follow. This in not a book I would like to read again.

    Melancholy Melange

    Edwige Danticat offers us several short stories about the Dulavier era of Haiti. In her almost prosaic prose Danticat give us true horror stories and the monsters are human. Each story can stand alone but it is connected to the others through characters who are the victims of a brutal regime. Even the perpetrators are given sympathetic reality, which makes the reader wonder about the human condition. This is not a book I would read again, only because the subject is so painful and melancholy, but Danticat manages to find beauty through her writing about the most horrible events. ¿ Leslie Strang Akers

    Have to agree with the negatives

    I've enjoyed Danticat's earlier work and looked forward to reading this much-praised collection of interrelated stories. While her subject is worthy of the attention, the stories and style are not up to par.
