4.0 out of 5 stars Drink, Drugs, Sex, Crime, Vandalism... it's all here!, 4 Feb 2011
This review is from: The Tooth Fairy (Paperback)
I interpriated this book as a look at the psyche of adolsents and it adresses all sorts of matter, mainly sexual but also guilt, vandalism, peodophilia, drugs, murder and drink (to name but a few).
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the book can sometimes read like it's having an identity crisis. At times the flow and language of the author made it feel like a "teen-horror", then it was "Mills and Boon" and finally a bit of Stephen King. Personally the darkness promised on the back cover is the biggest dissappointment as the book trails more into bizarre, and at some stages comedy, than the journey into the darkness of a disturbed teenage boy that I expected. This really could have been one deep dark disturbing masterpiece, instead it's much lighter and very easy reading.
I can see why some people have labelled this book as utter rubbish as the line between genius and nonsense in such novels is wafer thin, but for me Joyce pulled it off, just.
