Product Description

I am dying: it's a beautiful word. Like the long slow sigh of a cello: dying. But the sound of it is the only beautiful thing about it. As life slips away, Gabriel looks back over his brief twenty years, which have been clouded by frustration and humiliation. A small, unforgiving town and distant, punitive parents ensure that he is never allowed to forget the horrific mistake he made as a child. He has only two friends - his dog, Surrender, and the unruly wild boy, Finnigan, a shadowy doppelganger with whom the meek Gabriel once made a boyhood pact. But when a series of arson attacks grips the town, Gabriel realizes how unpredictable and dangerous Finnigan is. As events begin to spiral violently out of control, it becomes devastatingly clear that only the most extreme measures will rid Gabriel of Finnigan for good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Wild Side 6 July 2005
By A Customer
Utterly unpatronising, dense and fiery language, parents who make the Wicked Witch of the West look like Mary Poppins, feral boy and feral dog, legend and fantasy, dream and nightmare, and are we dealing with terminal illness or a cocktail of schizophrenias? One of those truly searching 'cross-overs' of adult and children's fiction. On one level a rite of passage, on another a playing out of adolescent rage, revenge and fear in a world more or less closed to adults. Ranks with - and this is meant to be the highest praise - Robert Cormier at his very best.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Surrender!! 16 Sep 2010
By Kit Kat
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I started to read the book I was drawn in straight away, I wanted to keep reading to find answers. It is an interesting, easy read but when I got to the final page I was disappointed.
