House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III
House of Sand and Fog

Beryl272, January 10, 2008

I'm a senior in high school and this book was on my outside reading list so I chose it because I needed a book to connect to a previous book I'd read entitled 'The Bell Jar' to go along with its theme of depression. And I got what I was looking for. I have to agree with the comment below me and say that this book was completely infuriating because you say to yourself, okay, the characters are going to turn out to be dynamic, not static. They're going to come around and this book will leave you with a positive moral, but it just never comes and it leaves you with a huge dose of the truth instead of the sugar coated stories we're forced to read all throughout high school. So yes, I did get a book to accompany 'The Bell Jar's' theme of depression and suicide but I sure got more than I bargained for.
