review 1: This is a damn good, entertaining book! The writing is clean and charismatic, with a hip flare similarly found in Junot Diaz novels. It is a rarity for me to digest a book in a few days, but the sensual experience and perceptiveness of Boy Hernandez, a young filipino immigrant just trying to make it in America as a fashion designer, is really engrossing. It is comprised of interesting tales of love and ambition that hit close to home for any hopeless romantic, and of a shadowy world of indefinite detentions, extraordinary renditions, and crushing despair. I enjoyed this book a lot.
