We the Animals Reviews
"Starred Review. Upon finishing, readers might be tempted to start again, not wanting to let it go." - Kirkus
"Torres is clearly a gifted writer with a special talent for tone and characterization. His novel is a pleasure to read." - Booklist
"The short tales that make up this novel are intriguing and beautifully written, but take too long to reach the story's heart, the narrator's struggle to come of age and discover his sexuality in a hostile environment." - Publishers Weekly
"In punchy, energized language, the narrator of this dark and affecting little book relates life with his two brothers and their too young, just-making-it parents...Highly recommended." - Library Journal

I read this book in one sitting. Yes, it is brief, but the story and how it is told fuelled and propelled this reader. The story races along a rutted, winding, littered road with steep ascents and descents with a driver who is unafraid of hairpin and no-shoulder curves. I loved it.
