Another of my aspirations was to do more book reviews. Every time I finished a book, I promise myself to do a review, as a sort of mini-diary about what I read that year. I force myself to start, even if it’s a bit trite, but I’ll work on expressing myself! So let’s start!
As a recent newcomer to Canada, the book resonated with my feelings of having family and friends far away. It also guided me in a way with the manner in which family dramas progress in the novel, how one thing can change the course of a family. If you’re looking for a read with a balance of both the past, the present, and the future, with ties to a far off home country, and assimilating to a new one, with the echoes of culture on it’s heels, look no further than the Disappearing Moon Cafe.
