I was so impressed with the start of this book because it was so comical with exactly the type of sarcastic humour that I enjoy. However, it did go on too long and for no reason that I can discern. Her trips to Abe Hill and The Comb's trailer kept repeating themselves. I did feel for Nomi but got tired of the wanderings with no point. ( )

Toews seminal text holds up. Nomi's angst, questions, and profound grief are rendered in a way that captures the spirit of adolescence without being dated or awkward. I did wish for a bit more explication of her mother's turn away from her father as that seemed to hang in the background and came to the surface rather abruptly. Overall I am reminded why she's one of my favorite authors and really the joy, wonder, and sorrow of living.

If 3.5 stars were an option...but I'll error on the side of generosity. I know something of the world Toews describes. I found it entertaining and rewarding. I did grow tired of it about 2/3 of the way through. I felt like telling the author, "ok, I've got it. Move on." For all it's very interesting look into Nomi's teenage mind, somehow it lacked some depth. Even stoned and confused, I suspect more would be going on inside. ( )

I normally avoid books which have won any kind of prize, or even been nominated. But I read this for a book club. My usual practice was thoroughly vindicated. A Canadian Prairie Catcher in the Rye: teenage angst, conflicting emotions, sentiment, self-pity. Extremely repetitious. Full of cheap shots at easy targets. An unconvincing ending, but by that point I had ceased to care.
Postscript: Book club attendee, a CanLit professor with personal and professional Mennonite credentials, noted that in this novel Toews does not attempt an accurate portrayal of the Mennonite community in which she was raised, so what I perceived as cheap shots at it were perhaps more nuanced and part of a more complicated agenda. Didn’t make me like the book any better, however.

Those of us who felt oppressed as teenagers can easily recall how any act of rule-bending, whether it was puffing a cigarette or starting an ill-advised romance, could seem an enormous yet thrilling risk of outsized proportions.
 
[Toews] has produced a work of fiction that resounds with truth.... That is at once a profoundly funny book, and a profoundly sad one, which will often leave readers wondering if they should laugh or cry.

Unforgettable.

Exquisitely written and faceted.... Heartbreaking and humorous... From beginning to end the book is unusually calibrated and incredibly compelling.

A darkly funny and provocative novel.
