I agree with most of the people in the "fishbowl" about how the book is more interesting and easier to follow with the whole change of point of view every chapter. At first, it seemed like it was confusing because most books are not usually written like this but I think it changes up the book so it will not be as dull or let us say boring.

The book, Tortilla Curtain has an interesting way of telling the story though the eyes of two different characters with two very different lives. I believe these different perspectives (which alternate each chapter) give a better contrast between the two dramatically different life styles. It gives the reader a new outlook on the lives of the illegal immigrants and their struggle and can find themselves connected to Delaney (the other perspective) living an American citizen's life. This book seems to be setting up for there to be more connections between the two main characters. I look forward to continuing this book.

I think so far the Tortilla Curtain is a very straight forward book, which explains a lot of problems our economy has. I think its interesting how this book was published in 1995 and today we are still having the same problems. Also, I think it’s interesting how the book is just surrounded or focused on two families rather than the whole problem, because it breaks it down, and shows how it affects different people.
