    2. An exquisitely crafted slim book written with immediacy and touching human insight There are stories within stories about the journey of two recent European immigrants who are blunt, flawed, fascinated, each lost and brave in their own way It s quite original and easy to readwhich for me is a big plus because I often struggle with highly hyped thick opuses eg Fate and Furies If you like the short, breezy work of Modiano or Fitzgerald you will love it If you prefer traditional, longer prose that [...]


    3. I won a copy of this book in a Goodread giveaway.This is a different kind of book It is really two short stories dealing with a young man and woman who have left behind their native countries and moved to the US seeking that American dream The characters are well drawn and seemed real The dialogue is strong and engaging It was a quick read and I finished it in one afternoon It just felt a little incomplete to me Although I basically enjoyed it, I really wanted there to be to the stories.


    4. I received Brand New Americans free through I read it in less than one day, and I liked it, but I wanted I wanted to know what these young people, newcomers to America, would go on to do The girl is a bit complacent, and I felt that she will be okay, not great just okay The young man is very cynical, mercenary, and seems to look out for himself first.


    5. Not so great If you enjoy listening to a young man and an older woman both immigrants to the USA discuss love, heartbreak, life, etc This is the book for you I enjoyed Max s part of the story, but Gia s long drawn out, over analysis of her failed romance was naseating No wonder the old guy cheated I won my copy of Brand New Americans from First Reads.


    6. This is a book about a man and a woman who emigrate to the United States Many topics are explored such as love and heartbreak It was a decent enough book It s a quick read I think many people could enjoy it I received this book in a giveaway from First Reads.


    7. Won this book on good reads Short book read in one evening About two people coming to America from different country to follow the American Dream Book just not enough to me Not engaging enough Not enough story Sorry


    8. I won this in a Goodread giveaway.This was a quick book to read Though it was interesting to read the story of these immigrants there seemed to be something missing Even so this was a OK book.



    9. I liked it Very different Max s story, honest and heartfelt, Gia s visceral and thought provoking I can see it as a movie.


    10. Max The Other Boy who lived in his dreams Marina The Other Girl Both of them seeking love and a better way of life And other stories THANK YOU FIRSTREADS FOR THIS FREE BOOK
