    Unsure about some things

    I think that this book is pretty good, really I do. It has helped pass some of the time when I have nothing to do. But, I think i am pushing myself to finish this book because I want to know what happens in the end. There are parts in the book where the story gets exciting and then you turn the page and you read about some people that have nothing to do with the current excitment. Also, I find that you pretty much need to know Spanish/Mexican to get through some of the dialogue. AND the only thing that irritates me about this book is the talk of little kids that are newborns with pubic hair and a little 3 year old boy with an erection. Does this really purtain to anything???? Other than just gross disgusting images? I don't mind the adult stuff because it is more appropriate.
