İki farklı kültür arasında sıkışmış bir çocuğun inanılmaz bir hikayesi: Meksika'nın ailesinin geçmişinin geleneği ve Amerika'nın liberalizmi. Her dakikasını sevdim.
Üzgün olduğumda ızgara peynirli sandviçler ve kremalı domates çorbası yapıyorum. Büyük ve Küçük Tüm Canlılar o yemeğin edebi eşdeğeridir: basit, rahatlatıcı ve derinden hoş.
I have to say, I really, really enjoyed reading this novel probably because it exceeded my expectations. I highly enjoyed the witty humor and the very interesting point of view, Poe. The characters, Poe, Theo and Velveeta are highly personified and are developed nicely. I enjoyed Poe immensely because she's just so funny. I admire her courage to go against the school and its authorities to point out their errors. And even though she herself is the definition of the things she wants to get rid of, I love her approach because it's extremely ironic. Theo is the typical sidekick and I absolutely adore him. He's funny and he's very easygoing. And despite the fact that he isn't as outspoken as Poe and the fact that he doesn't do anything to help Velveeta, he is still very against the school, their policy, in general. Velveeta is the typical victim of school bullying. He's afraid of saying anything for fear of getting more hurt and more bullied. So instead, he keeps quiet about everything. He's a very quirky fellow and even though he's being bullied, I still find him courageous. He's not outwardly courageous but he has more of an inner courage. :) I love how Poe befriended him despite his weirdness and I personally find him as a very interesting person. Overall, Brutal was a very entertaining read. It dwells in the idea of cliques and the idea of who fits in and who doesn't. The writing style made the book seem very worthwhile.
