Very entertaining book. I read it so fast (a true page turner). It had a lot of pretty brutal and violent scenes. I'm curious how that will translate for the movie. I need to read book 2 !

Contrary to what I expected given the very simple writing, this story moves quickly. Be advised that much of it is quite brutal.

Roth handles several coming-of-age issues with appreciable sophistication. The concept is original; the general storyline, not so much. Overall, though, I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading the sequel.
