    1. Onvan Brother, I m Dying Nevisande Edwidge Danticat ISBN 1400041155 ISBN13 9781400041152 Dar 272 Safhe Saal e Chap 2007

    2. Before this book, I thought of Haiti in snippets of earthquake, political unrest, the first successful slave revolution and whatever postcolonial joyrides the country had been taken for thereafter by many an intrusive neighbor Danticat, n e Dantica, does not yet know of the earthquake in the writing of these pages, and indeed has no concern for whatever panoramic blips I ve picked up about this country Her country, for however long a time she has spent outside it, Haiti is where she was born, an [...]

    3. Danticat hands you her story and walks away Her writing style is stark here my first time reading her the facts are heavy, but she doesn t tug the reader one way or another or mandate sentiment She relays her tale and then she is done Damn Very effective.I thought most about absence on a few levels after finishing it The literal absence of her parents and extended family at different periods of her life due to political strife and economic necessity The unjustified absence of faith by people in [...]

    4. In Brother, I m Dying Danticat tells the stories of her father, Andre aka Mira , and his brother her uncle, Joseph, who along with his wife, Denise, raised Edwidge and her brother in Haiti while their parents immigrated and worked to prepare to bring the family together in New York in the 1970s and early 1980s and how, in 2004, she lost these two men her father to pulmonary fibrosis, while her uncle, a pastor, languished in a detention center in Miami after fleeing gang threats in Haiti and hopi [...]

    5. After reading a number of equally excellent books concerning daughters, mothers and grandmothers, it is great to read about the special connections between a daughter and her two fathers, for Edwidge Danticat s writes of both her father Mira, who left Haiti for New York when she was 2 years old and her Uncle Joseph, who treated her like a daughters for those nine long years that followed before she and her brothers Bob were able to join their parents and the two new brothers that had arrived in [...]

    6. The author grabbed my attention with the first sentence I found out I was pregnant the same day that my father s rapid weight loss and chronic shortness of breath were positively diagnosed as end stage pulmonary fibrosis This sentence let me know that the book was going to be about life, death and family relationships It s also about the immigrant experience, Haitian political violence and cruel actions of ICE Immigration and Customs EnforcementI was emotionally drawn into the story, and soon I [...]

    7. I am not Haitian But you will know me better if you read this, because the author has had such an influence on my passions and what I have studied This book is biographical I ve read and own the 4 other major books written by Edwidge Danticat, and they are my most and possibly only lent books If you ever wondered why I wrote so much about Haiti in college, take a read.I don t know if I should recommend this book out of order from the other ones, or possibly if this should be the starting point T [...]

    8. You often feel as if you can with stand anything until life hits you with the unexpected Therefore, as I watch my father labor in what feels like the end stages of his illness, listening to Edwidge Danticat s story of her Uncle Joseph and father, Andre ne Mira , battle through their own health scares a deep cord was struck within me With this memoir, Danticat manages to take her family s tragedy along with Haiti s ongoing political turmoil and magnificently pair it with her journey into motherho [...]

    9. What a nice memoir of Danticat s uncle and father as well as recollection of her pregnancy and birth of her first child Not in the mood for a depressing read,I was hesitant to listen to this book It wasn t depressing What it was was an excellent recounting of what it was like to live in Haiti during UN occupations and unstable governments, as well as a look at living in New York City or Miami when you are Haitian Danticat has an easy style I found it refreshing after reading and listening to sev [...]

    10. Danticat may just be one of the best contemporary writers Her perceptive critique of institutionalisation, race relations, and history as chronic and affecting structures was embedded into my brain, and pierced into my heart, as I followed her personal narrative of the loss of family, a culture of violence, and the desperation of powerlessness.

    11. This book is so wonderful I loved this This is a family memoir, and links several story pieces together cohesively than almost any novel I ve read in ages It s beautifully done Partly it is about the author s growing up in Haiti at her uncle s house, before moving to the U.S at twelve to be with her parents c 1980 And partly it is a chronicle of the year that her father and uncle died, and in which she gave birth to her first child c 2004 Each of these pieces is a worthwhile story in itself, bu [...]

    12. Wow If I thought I couldn t possibly lose even respect for this president, his administration, his Homeland Security, and his policies, I was wrong.This book is yet another reason why we should be very angry and should really work for change in whatever way we can This is a very intimate book By the end, you feel as though you should be coming over with food for the family I had always known bits and pieces about Haitian history from my years studying the French language, but now I really want [...]

    13. I need to stop telling people This is a book about a lady that grew up in Haiti with her uncle Her uncle died, around the same time her father died, and she had a baby in between those times I m not spoiling this for anybody it says all of that stuff in the jacket of the book I mean, that just sounds depressing, and overall, the book is not First of all, the book is really well written Very simple language, but powerful Characters, situations, feelings come across This was a book for my neighbor [...]

    14. This book is devastatingly good Especially once you get to the second half of the book I caught myself holding my breath as I read I just could not believe what I was reading Danticat tells the story of her family so beautifully The descriptions of her two sets of parents her aunt and uncle raised her for some time in Haiti, when her parents came to America to get settled She eventually moved to America, but many of her formative years were with her aunt and uncle This story mostly focuses on he [...]

    15. A respectfully written memoir that focuses on Edwidge s father and his brother Her father and mother leave Haiti for a better life leaving Edwidge and her brother to be looked after by their uncle It took 10 years for them to be reunited The powerful thread revolves around the uncle Joseph a pastor He stays in Haiti, has cancer of the larynx and loses his voice box, is faced with the numerous changes of government, corruption, gang wars and international peace efforts In the end when he flees t [...]

    16. Intelligent, thoughtful, and heartbreaking A first hand account of one man s ordeal, which illustrates in stark relief the way U.S policies on immigration have combined with ignorance and systemic racism to cause untold suffering in Haitians Danticat allows us to get to know her uncle in all his humanity and dignity before taking us step by step through his most terrible suffering and death at the hands of immigration officers Most of this slim memoir is full of love and joy, even in the midst o [...]

    17. After reading Kidder s Mountain Beyond Mountain about Dr Farmer, Brother I m Dying was an eloquent and welcomed portrait of the life of one Haitian family This book adds a third dimension to the sketch of Haiti we get from Farmer through Kidder Danticat is no less than graceful in painting the full picture of living, loving and dying in her family all against the backdrop of a constantly flailing Haiti This is a great book for college classrooms, book clubs, or well anyone who loves their family [...]

    18. An extraordinary writer She is able to convey the deepest emotions with the simplest words The facts as they are are stunning enough and need no embellishment The book moves quite quickly, as she doesn t feel the need to dissect every single moment in everyone s life as it pertains to her experience This is a stirring tribute to her lineage and she should be proud I was moved to tears by the dignity of her father and her uncle, even in the face of so much pain and grief So many people give up on [...]

    19. I had to read this book for my AP class, but I ve always wanted to read it anyway However, I was obligated to write an essay about it, which I will post as my review There might be some spoilers, but here it is There are plenty of books a person dives into knowing some essential characters in the story will not make it to the end, yet still they go on because they wish to know their story They wish to go through their journey with them, perhaps to get an idea of what it felt like When the reader [...]

    20. A beautifully told, albeit heartbreaking, story about a family, the country they call ed home, and the politics that surround the roots of their identities I felt invested and sentimental the author fosters a connection with the reader without being overt or emotionally manipulative.

    21. This is the fourth book I ve read by Danticat and yes, I ve fallen in love with her writing Her words are descriptive, tender, and compelling truly sincere writing that tugs at the heartstrings In this story, Danticat reveals her early life in Haiti, living with her Uncle Joseph and his wife while her parents live in America, working to eventually afford to bring her to live with them In a sense, she has two fathers two good, honest men who love her and cherish her So it stands to reason that in [...]

    22. My reading of Danticat s memoir was greatly enhanced by experiencing it as an audiobook, where the voice actor s Haitian accent and mastery of French give Danticat s words passion and power No doubt something is lost when a reader tries to read the French with her heavy, English only, mid Western accent.Danticat s book bears witness to the story of her two fathers, her Uncle Joseph who raised her in Haiti as a child, and her father, Mira, who spends agonizing years away from her, raising money [...]

    23. Almost ten years ago I read Edwidge Danticat s beautiful, lyrical novel The Farming of Bones That book and her other works focus on the turbulent Haitian experience, especially for women This memoir, which won this year s National Book Critics Circle Award, tells the story of her childhood in Haiti and immigration to New York at age twelve, but instead of being centered around the female experience, it is really the story of the relationship of her father, who immigrated to NYC with Edwidge s mo [...]

    24. Whenever an author of color publishes a book especially when the author is from a country that has experienced war or poverty, etc everyone wants to talk about her or his report of hardship and struggle this is partly an issue of access publishers don t want to publish everyday life books when they can publish a nonfiction book about some human rights atrocity across the border that US readers will happily eat up The parts of Brother, I m Dying that I most enjoyed were the loving, anecdotal expo [...]

    25. I love Danticat She is a master storyteller After grave political turmoil, separation from her parents and later the aunt and uncle who cared for her in her formative years, Danticat tells an amazing story of an enduring family bond and the immigrant experience in the US This isn t a happy feel good story, but you don t walk away from it depressed or angry It s far too compelling for those emotions You will feel deep sadness at times, like her parents leaving for the US without her and her broth [...]

    26. This book is unforgettable This is a true story about Haiti, a Haitian family trying to make it in America, and to another elderly family member who tries years later to immigrate to the United States Edwidge Danticat is an immensely talented writer, and her portrayal of her family s suffering especially inside the United States is heartbreaking The portrayal of the United States treatment of Haitian refugees is hard to believe Is this really the way we treat them It is horrific, as is the irony [...]

    27. Nothing impressed me with this title Lots of words that just rambled on and on and on I just don t like these kind of books I didn t enjoy I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and this book was similar to the title Brother I m Dying, but it was only a 1 star read as much of that title made no sense to me I think both these books won awards, but I can t feel the magic.Truly, jumping around and describing Haiti like she did, was mind boggling to this outsider I see from other reviews, I m the miniority [...]

    28. What is a memoir supposed to accomplish I only ask because I m not sure what the goal of this one was I imagine this would be interesting to people who were already devoted to Danticat as a person or an author But I haven t read any of her other stuff While there are a few notable things in her story immigrant parents and a childhood in Haiti separated from them for many years, for example , I don t feel like she revealed much Her thoughts about and reactions to what happens to her seem entirely [...]

    29. A deeply moving story of a Haitian woman and her family during the past three decades Left behind at the age of 4 with her 2 year old brother, Edwidge Danticat spends 10 years in the care of her aunt and uncle in Haiti while her parents try to start a new live in New York Eventually the family is united in N.Y where Edwidge must start a new life with parents she barely knows and two new younger brothers As she grows older she forms a close bond with her parents while maintaining her ties with he [...]
