The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Diaz Why, o why, some books become bestsellers?
I guess Wao became one because it deals with dictatorship in Dominican Republic, but there is also magic realism (clumsy for my taste) and infinite (or seemingly so, until the end) references to Lord of the Rings.
Such a hard read (even with annotated site). I thought about quitting almost all the time I was reading.
