Did not really enjoy this book ( )

This is an intense book for a YA title. These three troubled youngsters have pasts that will never leave them. Their lives are filled with tragedy, uncertainty, brutality, and for one, redemption in the most unusual of people. The writing style is unique, the conversation is so accurate. While I found the story disturbing and haunting, I also found it touching and compelling. It is definitley meant for a much older teen reader, but it is surely a book that will stay with the reader for sometime. ( )

I hated this book but was gripped by it. Awful reality that just tortured me. ( )

Reviewed by Mark Frye, author and reviewer for TeensReadToo.com

Author and playwright Adam Rapp has created a masterful tale of woe in 33 SNOWFISH. With all of the trappings of "high literature" (there are stream-of-consciousness passages and multiple narrators), the author transcends the Problem Novel genre in this homage to Faulkner's AS I LAY DYING.

Like many of Faulkner's novels, 33 SNOWFISH depicts society's lowest, common denominator while somehow managing to make these characters three-dimensional and fairly sympathetic. They are at once repulsive and pitiful; the reader is drawn into their lives much like commuters passing by a car wreck. One cannot help but look or want to lend a hand.

This is the story of Custis, Curl, and Boobie, two teen runaways and one pre-teen. Each has a myriad of issues and a litany of anti-social behaviors that include pyromania, murder, prostitution, robbery, kidnapping, and weapons possession. We are dragged along on their ill-fated journey, where we learn about their past while watching them in the disastrous present. That the author finds a way to redeem one of the characters by the end of the story is a remarkable and credible feat.

Many reviewers issue a disclaimer about 33 SNOWFISH due to the lives of kids on the street being so graphically and dispassionately outlined. There are many adult themes and some profanity. This book is not for the squeamish. But neither is it a trite, formulaic, sensationalistic bombshell; every word, every paragraph, and every page is essential to the journey of these characters, even though only one meets an end that is appealing.

Rapp is to be commended for not "dumbing down" a story of the street for a wider readership. Many other young adult novels have a didactic message that is cumbersome and cliché, sounding a warning as loud as a tuba, leaving nothing for the reader to reflect upon. But 33 SNOWFISH is that rare book that is art for the sake of art, that makes the reader think for the message, that makes its audience reach for the gift of understanding, and the novel does it without wasting any words or pages.

Faulkner's fans and his detractors will appreciate this novel, as will young adult readers. Highly recommended. ( )

Disturbing. Too sad, too painful. ( )
