Finn is a likable character. His friend, Cade Hernandez, is crude, but I enjoyed the depth of the friendship, and the blossoming of the new friendship with Julia Bishop. The book is amusing, and probably the depiction of epilepsy is accurate.

(SPOILER ALERT-- I’m giving away precious details because I don’t think anyone I know will be reading this themselves--) I got this Young Adult audio book for free from audiobooksync.com, so shouldn’t complain, but I can’t think of anyone to whom I would recommend this book--Maybe Jake in “Two and a Half Men”, but is he a real personality type, or an adult’s attempt at remembering childhood, fortified by many accumulated thoughts and memories since? And, if it’s a real personality type, would that youth be a reader, even if the book reflected their personality so well? If, when I was that age, I knew any 16-year-olds like the main character in this book, I was blissfully unaware. If there ARE any cigarette smoking, skateboard toting kids who feel the need to alternately insert in or tag every sentence with “sh*t”, whose every acquaintance, be it friend or parent, is equally fond of the word, and who are sexually aroused by everything to the point of utter confusion about their orientation, AND that might eagerly anticipate annihilating huge man-eating, pro-creating (replace this word with the synonym that starts with "f".) praying-mantis type bugs, then there IS an audience for this book. It’s quite possible that I’ve simply never been invited into the mind of a 16-year-old, and again, remain blissfully unaware. I *will* say that the reader, Phillip Church, did a great job with the necessary tongue-in-cheek delivery of the text. :-)… (mais)

Giant mutant insects as a potent metaphor for a teenager's confused sexuality. A remarkably gloppy, sloppy, crass book, and a lot of fun.

I read this on the recommendation of an author I follow and enjoy quite a bit. I should have picked this up sooner since I did enjoy Smith's MARBURY LENS, but well there are so many books out there.

On the one hand I'm like "Well. I didn't think the world would end in this manner." on the other hand I'M RUNNING SCREAMING IN TERROR BECAUSE THIS IS MY NIGHTMARE COME TRUE.
