‘Ghosts’-Book Review

book review

Today I am reviewing a book I just read. ‘Ghosts’-by Edwidge Danticat (2008) has so much to say about our society, no matter where we live.

Ghosts - by Edwidge Danticat

Pascal Dorien, the central protagonist of the story, might have a happy and prosperous life because he was hardworking as seen in the story, “When he wasn’t helping out at the restaurant or going to computer-programming classes at a vocational school, Pascal worked as a news writer for Radio Zòrèy” (Danticat, 2008, para. 8), and he was genius too, which showed when he made a beautiful idea for a radio program and later the biggest radio station of the country stole the idea (Danticat, 2008, para. 16). But instead, he ended up getting arrested and sent to jail.
This story shows that intentionally or unintentionally you will get involved in the criminal activity when you are living in a neighborhood like Bel Air.
I love this story because it shows behind a society, which we usually avoid and blindly blame them when sometimes they are the victims.
“He wanted the rest of the country to know what made these men cry. They cannot remain chimès to us forever” (Danticat, 2008, para. 8).
Even in a cruel neighborhood, there is still friendship. Max lost his job because he stood for his friend (Danticat, 2008, para. 21).
