    " I had to get this read before Good Thunder. Danticat is amazing...one of those writers who uses simple words in the best order to surprise you with the most powerful images. The first story in the collection "Children of the Sea" is responsible for the four-star rating. Beautiful story. Tragic story. Human story. I also enjoyed how the character names recurred throughout the book, forcing me to consider the connections among women across the decades and the continents. "

    " Edwidge Danticat is my favorite author. I love her writing slyle, and have also had the priveledge of hearing her read once, when the Dew Breaker came out. This is a book of short stories...an insight into Haitian culture and it's struggles. I just read this book for the second time. Seni, I think you have my original copy, signed by the author. Hope you have read it by now. If not, get busy! "

    " Krik? Krak! by Edwidge Danticat is a collection of short stories that detail the Haitian experience. A combination of reflection, storytelling, history, and memories each story brings to light different aspects of Haitian culture, while reinforcing the commonalities between the Haitian people. As a whole, Krik? Krak! is an emotional whirlwind. Danticat brings forth the raw emotions felt by the characters and exposes the reader to those same feelings of love, kinship, grief, and pride. In attempting to dissect the novel, I found myself wanting to know why Danticat would want the reader to relive these somber stories. To all readers whether Haitian or not, the stories illustrate a turbulent past in Haiti through images of oppression, destitution, and tragedy. Danticat may hope to use these stories to remind the Haitian people of their past, not just through dates and event, but through the eyes of their ancestors. Krik? Krak! is a testament to retell these stories and carry the past with you always. "
