This book is more a collection of vignettes than a novella, it segues from one character to another without giving time for anyone to make a true impression. Sadly, I felt I would forget these stories almost as quickly as I had read them and that I would be left with just a general feeling of what the book was about rather than something specific to hold on to.

There is a sense of people reaching for a better life, but also the idea that all lives count, that these people are living just as varied and meaningful an existence as the people in the larger houses that our child narrator so admires. I liked that in the end, she wants to escape, but she is thinking of how she can return to bring others out with her. I think she might, in her later years, learn to remember Mango Street with a sweetness that will be unexpected. She claims it is not, but it is home.

I can see this story resonating with a lot of young people that I would like to see this be mandatory reading in every school, but I know that’s unlikely to happen unfortunately. ( )

Like many others, this was required reading for me in high school. I remember having trouble with my analysis essay. I remember the joyous shout from the back of the room, "My name's in here!" from a girl named Maritza, and how I hoped she would like the book a lot and have the character of Maritza be a big character. I remember thinking this was Cisneros' autobiography, and becoming further convinced when my teacher brought in a VHS of an interview Cisneros did. Years later, I was stunned to find out this is a work of fiction, courtesy of a "blink and you miss it" disclaimer of the "any resemblance is a coincidence" variety near the copyright information. The work still reads, to me, like it was heavily based off Cisneros' own life and maybe she took creative freedom in places. That's not a bad thing in this instance! It--fine, I will call it fiction so I can move ahead in this review. Cisneros' introduction to this book was not clearly indicated as fiction, in my perspective. It was probably written the way it was to set the tone for the rest of the book. In the introduction, Cisneros flip-flops between referring to herself and her father in third person, and her mother in second person. The introduction quite weakens the assertion that this book is fiction--Cisneros states "the young woman is me". Onward before I am further stuck on this.

This is a short novel entirely comprised of stream-of-consciousness, slice of life, vignettes. The vignettes do not contain any dialogue, which meant I had to read it over and over as a student in order to grasp what was going on. There is little in the way of punctuation. I remember narrowing my eyes at the page and wondering if something was wrong with the ink. As an adult, I am free to make my own reading decisions, draw much different conclusions, and--I forgot how I was going to end that sentence. Anyway, as an adult, I read through it and was much calmer about it than I was as a teenager. I must have really hated the essays I wrote on this book, is all I'm coming up with. So. This book was written in a unique way for the time period it came out in, and especially now. It indeed makes reading tricky. I'm glad it was written, and I congratulate Cisneros on her success. I hope it keeps being widely read and discussed. ( )

A veces conmovedora, a veces sorprendente y divertida, La casa en Mango Street cuenta la historia de Esperanza Cordero, una joven mexicoamericana que crece en el barrio hispano de Chicago, en un ambiente donde la tradición se mezcla con nuevos estilos de vida. A sus catorce años, tiene muy claro que no quiere pertenecer a un mundo desvencijado que se le queda pequeño. Celebrada desde su publicación inicial en 1984 como un clásico de la novela de aprendizaje, esta historia descubre hasta qué punto nuestros miedos, deseos y sueños son universales. La identidad individual y la lealtad a la comunidad, el desarraigo o el primer amor son algunos de los temas que Sandra Cisneros personaliza en Esperanza inspirándose en las historias que le contaron sus alumnas.
