Why does Skippy, a student at Dublin's venerable Seabrook College, end up dead on the floor of the local doughnut shop? Could it have something to do with his friend Ruprecht Van Doren, who is determined to open a portal into a parallel universe using ten-dimensional string theory? Or Carl, the teenage drug dealer who is Skippy's rival in love?… (mere)

First half was a five, last hundred pages lost me. Still, loved the parts I loved. ( )

Here's what I wrote in 2011 about this read: "WOW. What a punch this packs. Totally modern (example, the teens text videos) and broadsweeping. Skippy dies; who contributed and who (all) ignored the signs? Lori and Ruprecht survive and will carry on." A bit surprisingy, I can't recall a thing about it here in 2023. ( )

This was a fantastic book, probably my favourite book this year. So many different characters and pieces falling in and out of the story. Brilliant, funny, sad, exhausting, I loved every bit of it. ( )

Must be a guy thing. Couldn't get through it. ( )

Made it to about page 40, and it wasn't engaging me, which is odd, because I usually love coming of age/boarding school stories. Didn't care for the style; didn't care about the characters, and more promising things arrived from the library...may go back to it sometime.

Six hundred sixty-one pages may seem like a lot to devote to a bunch of flatulence-obsessed kids, but that daunting length is part and parcel of the cause to which “Skippy Dies,” in the end, is most devoted. Teenagers, though they may not always act like it, are human beings, and their sadness and loneliness (and their triumphs, no matter how temporary) are as momentous as any adult’s. And novels about them — if they’re as smart and funny and touching as “Skippy Dies” — can be just as long as they like.

[T]his is an extremely ambitious and complex novel, filled with parallels, with sometimes recondite references to Irish folklore, with quantum physics, and with much more.

Life makes fools of us all sooner or later. But keep your sense of humour and you'll at least be able to take your humiliations with some measure of grace. In the end, you know, it's our own expectations that crush us. (S. 628)
