The two novels The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz and In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez intersect in a few interesting ways.  Both are stories about families from the Dominican Republic and how the experience of the “EI Jefe” regime impacted them and caused a loss of family wealth and status.  The major contrast is the difference in parenting that significantly influenced the outcome of their lives. Beli dropped out of school at a young age, didn’t know how to raise Lola because she never grew up with her parents, and therefore she didn’t know the right way to raise a child. The Mirabels raised their four daughters with family bonding of love and care, and provided them with good education so their lives turn out much more stable.

The brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz is a book about a Dominican boy named Oscar, who weighs more than two hundred pounds, likes to write, cries all the time and cannot get a girl to go out with him. The author uses a number of literary techniques such as framing device, geographical, in medias res, and narrative hook to keep the reader’s attention and tell this unique immigrant story. When I finished reading this book, I realized this story was not about Oscar himself but speaks for people from many different cultures that immigrate to the Unites States to try to successfully fulfill their dreams, which includes both the author and me. Diaz’s use of various narrative techniques enriches the storytelling and invites the reader to confront the immigrant experience from several points of view.
