A real page turner !

The monkey box is probably the sweetest true love story i have read... made all the more sweet by the fact that it is a REAL story! The history, the love and the passion of the characters, the fear of war, the rigidness of the social customs all interplay into a wonderful story I would love to see made into a movie! Mr. Rodriquez brings his family back to life for us; we get to know their very thoughts and dreams; their hopes, their passions , their sorrows.... we feel all of their emotions as if they were were living and breathing here today.


The Monkey Box is an incredibly intense story that runs the full gamut of emotions: love and war, struggles between the classes, greed, deceit, hardship, romance, etc.. What's even more incredible, it's a true story. The story is so riveting, I could not put it down. I read for hours on end. GREAT BOOK!
