Black Rabbit Summer

Scompare E anche Stella Ross una ragazza del loro liceo diventata famosa Tutti pensano che i due eventi siano collegati che Raymond lo strano sia il colpevole Pete vuole dimostrare a ogni costo che si sbagliano ma uando segreti rancori e vecchie gelosie mettono gli amici uno contro l'altro anche le sue certezze cominciano a incrinars. This book is a coming of age crime thriller for teenagers I m not a teenager and I m not really a fan of thrillers This book isn t for me And yet I thought it was awesomeThe plot centres around of group of friends in their mid teens As with any decent thriller there s sex booze drugs and missing people I ve often said that moral ambiguity is the key to any good story and you ll find that in abundance hereThis book might be marketed to teenagers but the uality of the writing is very high better than most thrillers I ve read that are aimed at adults It cleverly interweaves a genuinely thrilling mystery with neat social commentary and acutely observed humour centred around the teenager parent relationship The plot is of it s time it s only four years old and many of the references are already dated but the themes are timeless rich versus poor stereotypes versus reality childhood versus adulthoodThere s a brilliant thread of hallucinations and psychiatric disturbance that runs through this novel and there are key plot points to explain it I mention this only because it demonstrates that this book deals with complex concepts and uses really uite advanced literary techniues to make its points It might be for teenagers but there s no sense here of writing down to them And it doesn t pull punchesOne of the most remarkable aspects of Black Rabbit Summer is the extraordinary and memorable ending Of all the novels I ve read lately this has the strongest ending And again it s not an ending you might expect from a book aimed at teensI didn t particularly relish reading this but it completely surpassed my expectations It is a teen novel but that just means it s easy to read It s a narratively tight well written gripping novel I d recommend it to anyone

È un’estate torrida e Pete ha già passato diverse settimane senza fare altro che ciondolare per casa Fino a uando una telefonata gli cambia la vita per sempre È Nicole gli chiede di vedersi Presto si separeranno ognuno per la propria strada il college Parigi Sarebbe bello incontrarsi per l’ultima volta con il gruppo dei vecchi. Wow Just when I thought something good would come out from this book it went straight from being average to zero Here s the thing when you write about a certain character a large portion of it you expect the reader to care about the particular character Well for me at least I did I cared for Raymond The rest of the character Brooks could have written about them getting into a car accident and died And I still wouldn t give a crap about them Because I like the way Brooks describe Raymond as a friend the only friend to Pete That was the main factor that kept me glued to the book The whole point of reading further was to find out WHAT REALLY HAPPEN TO RAYMOND But no it went circling around between the cops and pete back to the fortune teller talking to a black rabbit hearing whispering raymond back to the fair Pete s annoying desire of wanting to do nothing but stare at his bedroom ceiling i think i ve never been annoyed by a character as worst as pete The next thing I know the whole mystery was dedicated to his old friends foolishness Which I didn t even find it interesting whatever the hell the Kidnap Ransom planning that they were involved in Secret Blackmail Kidnap Booze Lust Stupid Accident All that combined Death And yet still nothing about Raymond That is when the whole book starts losing its charm Oh the best part was they dismissed Raymond the only character i cared for How could they just dismissed him like that from the book when clearly most of the time missing Raymond is always top on Pete s agenda Maybe Raymond was abducted Maybe he just ran away Maybe he s still out there somewhere Maybe he s still alive I don t know Of course you don t know Pete that s the whole point of a mystery book You re suppose to unfold the mystery that s been lingering around this missing person Black Rabbit Summer got me started but it definitely got me disappointed too

    I thought I was going to like this book the first three hundred pages or so Sure the narrator isn't exactly likeable but he makes you want to keep reading in the hope of finding out what happens to his best friend Raymond The book makes you think this is what it's actually about However it becomes much centered around all its litt

    Interesting little book but I really didn't like Brooks' choppy flat writing style On the bright side I thought the characters in Black Rabbit Summer were really original
