The pearl is a book about a man name Kino who is in search for a pearl to sale so he can save his son after getting stung in the neck by a scorpion. He ends up finding what is called the pearl of the world, and everybody hears the news about the huge find. bad things start happening to the family because people are trying to steal it from him so they can become rich. in the end trackers look for them so they can take the pearl from them and the trackers end up shooting and killing the son. the parents throw the pearl back into the ocean because instead of saving their son it ended up getting him shot.
I would recommend this book to people because its just a good book. I like it because there is a lot of tension in it and you don't know what's going to happen next. I don't like some parts because it gets wordy and its a little confusing. but I would still recommend this book.
