    Downloadmobi ¼↠ connecfloor PochoPocho was a little journey through American Mexican history But for such a little book too much was packed into it The character stories were disintegrated It started out with Pocho's dad and his lover and then it suddenly jumped to his life with his wife and the birth of Pocho And since the author tried to cover so mucb ground the book read like a newspaper report covering the events in Pocho's life Too much was told little was left for the reader to experience himself by partaking in Pocho's life Too many characters crossed Pocho's path and as soon as I got into their stories the abruptly ended and someone else took over in importance Otherwise certainly informative I learned about Pachucos and also gained a better insight into a traditional mexican marriage

    Downloadmobi ¼↠ connecfloor PochoThe book “Pocho” by Jose Antonio Villarreal is a well written novel that mainly portrays the hardships a kid of immigrant parents Richard faces on his journey to self discovery Being born an American from a Mexican background created these social expectations he was expected to adhere to This created an internal conflict of tradition vs oneself within Richard as he tried to discover his true identity Growing up Richard always struggled to “fit in” Being from a different cultural background than the one he was residing in made it extremely difficult to fit into one side Co
