This place is in Mexico. Kino Juana and their neighbour are Indian Mexicans. Their people have always lived in Mexico but about 400 years ago, people from spain came to Mexico. They used guns to take Mexico away from the Indian people. They wanted the Indian people to speak Spanish and to act like Spainards. The Indians felt unwelcome in their own country. The Indian mexicans were poorer than the Spanish Mexicans like Kino, they had no Money to go to school and they had to work at difficult , dirty jobs in this place. The doctor’s place is Stone town. A town of high walls and beautiful flowers in the garden. And the other place in the book.. La Paz and the mountains’ rocks and a cave which they’ve hiden..
This story started like our ‘Kaşıkçı Elması’ story. There are some poor people and they find something and their life will be change. But it didn’t have a good ending. And real poor american live isn’t an American real dream we can see that easly in this book. Racism is very clear in the book. There are double standards in the different races’ lives. There is a big drama in the story. There is extreme poverty. We can’t have endless happiness with money. There are rich peoples in the real life but they are ill and their money can’t be enough for healthy or happy life to them. We must be content with little. But this is humanity live it’s always wants to have more and more . We can’t protect always our loves , there is a different destiny than our choosing .
And personal idea ; I don’t like this book I’m very sorry about that. There are some reasons of course. First, I read John Steinbacks’ the other book ‘Of Mice And Man’ in the past. I bored again and the book’s ending was bad like that .He wrote very depressive his books isn’t for mine. I know farms live very much I lived there, but I don’t like reading it. Poor lives, hard lives, country lives and mexican dirty clothes or their guns. It can be tiring. Yes , I learnt that from this book; I like reading English history may be kings and palaces and ball dances and I don’t like reading Mexicans Americans and Indians history. I must win English Culture and Literature not American and last reason maybe I wrote it on the last day from our important exam it was very stressfull. I must read it again in the relax times may be.
