This was a dizzying read at times. If I’m honest the number of explicit sex scenes were too much for me even as I recognize the wish fulfillment aspects of the narrative. I think my younger self would have really enjoyed the narrative experimentation. My current self had to buckle up and go with it, but in the end I’m glad to have read it. What a whirlwind!

So, I was encouraged to pick up this book based on the cover and the unique title. I wasn’t sure what to expect of the story, but the stories inside were all wonderful. This collection of short works is rough and raw, full of emotion, and they all fit together in one way or another to tell a truly compelling story.

Since I listened to the audiobook, I didn’t have the words in front of me to see when one story ended, and another began. The narrator, Josh Shirt, however, made smooth transitions. The characters were also well voiced.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

I read this as I had seen the stage production with a friend's daughter performing. It's a book for children, primarily boys, about a small boy called Ruskin who is bullied, and who wants to be a hero.

There's a large and vicious alligator who lives in the sewers,, several caricatured adults (including Ruskin's rather sad parents and his teacher) and a bully who breaks windows and sleep walks. Given his environment, Ruskin is quite well-balanced. His only friend is the school caretaker.

The writing is good and there's plenty of action. One rather disturbing event near the end, and some scenes that could be scary for sensitive children. But for newly-fluent readers of about eight and up, who like action-based books, this could be a good choice.
