Buried Onions by Gary Soto
Buried Onions

hoagtown, November 20, 2007

Buried Onions is a very compelling story. The main character Eddie is faced with very tough life circumstances. It would be easy to write a book about how he "puts his nose to the grindstone" and all turns out well. That is not reality folks, and Soto does a great job of portraying how life really is in the barrio. Yes, the story is bitter, but wouldn't you be bitter too if you couldn't catch a break?
I think that everyone should give this book a read. It tells you a tale of a person who is extremely reaslistic and who is a person many of us will never get to meet personally. Listen to the story that Soto has to tell you. Learn from Eddie and, if nothing else, gain a new appreciation for all that you have in your life.
