I just finished reading the book and I felt like I was watching a good movie, the characters are so vivid and memorable. I felt so much joy inside following Tilou throughout the book and her passion for life. .It gave me a view into life in another culture lives...what life is like.

This piece of exceptional literary work defines the pervasive strength of the human will and spirit. This journey imparts the story of unparalleled determination within an eight-year old in spite of insurmountable odds and obstacles that lends itself well to a cultural documentary genre even though the writing and style are thoroughly filled with humor, wit and ageless widsom. What an entertaining, grasping and fully uplifting spiritual and heartwearming read this work provides for what will surely be the most entranced of readers! The addition of the CD songs and the sometimes French poetry/lyrics (complete with translation) permuted within the book further serve to expand the cultural indulgence provided by Crying Mountain. Just listen to the serene sounds of her music on her blog page and one can be able to at least start to appreciate Lili's inherent talents in addition to her inately mature human spirit and soul... all of from which we as a people should and could learn. The World would be a better place if more people were like Tilou! Let us all learn from her and strive to emulate her wisdom through her experience.

Lili Dauphin's Crying Mountain is a fabulous, uplifting story. How she survived the hurricane is absolutely amazing. I have never read or heard of a survival story like Crying Mountain. It is more than surviving a hurricane, but a true testimony to how the human spirit prevails, even under the worst conditions. It's an inspiration as to how one should live ones' life, that happiness comes from within regardless of ones' surroundings and circumstances. When I started to read Crying Mountain, I had attended a party the night before at a 3 story Italian style villa with a ocean view. I came home to my small, crickity, undermaintained one bedroom apt and was feeling a little depressed that I could never have or afford what the person in the 15 million dollar Villa had. Crying Mountain made me realize how truly lucky I really am and that I do have a lot to be thankful for. Lili is living proof that money does not buy happiness.

I recently purchased this book and got into to it immediately. This is a very in-depth story of a child's experience amongst mass destruction from a hurricane, while also a close look into the lives and people of Haiti. Most readers should find the novel intriguing with its colorful descriptions of the location and the various events.
