Scott is a loveable character whose sense of humour is the thing that struck me the most in this book. His wit and charm get him through the tough times he faces. I loved reading about his friendship with Ethan Walker (the protagonist from book 3 in the series) from the other side of things. The struggle he faces when forced to watch his best friend descend into a world of drugs and fighting without any way of stopping it is heartbreaking and beautifully written. Charlie M. Matthews has done a wonderful job of portraying not just Scott's cheeky chappy side but the softer side he doesn't show to many people, too.
The story hits you right between the eyes and shows so eloquently that we don't get to choose who we fall in love with. Scott goes through a lot and somehow manages to come out fighting. I defy anybody to read this book and not fall in love with him. He's a proper cheeky Manchester lad with floppy hair and a smile that charms the pants off women, but typically, the one he wants is the one he really shouldn't. I don't want to post any spoilers so all I'll say is to go ahead and read this book and fall head over heels for Scott, just like I did!
I loved this instalment of the RTW series, because it shows us the personality and the voice of someone who, up until now in the series, hasn't had a great deal of chance to speak. We get to see Ethan's life from another point of view, while watching his subplot of drug abuse, and his love for a blonde girl from a young age. We get to witness glimpses of life from another side, all the while smiling and pointing at our kindles when names we recognise appear. "Oh, Oh, I know that person! I remember them from book 4. Could that be linked to this? Could they be the one who..." you get my drift. All the books weave in and out of each others' stories, but never once do we lose Scott's voice throughout. And what a voice it is.
Charlie M. Matthews has brought a typical, young, troubled man to life with a brilliance that is hard to describe. His thought processes, the way he's weak to say no women, and they are weak to say no to him, too, is truly magnificent. He's got so many issues, so many things wrong with him, yet you can't help but think "you've got this, Scotty. I know you have," the whole way through, because even in his down and out moments, there's a subtle strength portrayed in his character throughout. Scott truly shines when his back is against the wall, and there's no denying that that happens several times over during his journey to Wonderland.
I loved part 5 of the RTW series and this is a truly spectacular novel from Charlie M. Matthews. I can't wait to see what she does next.
"Scott Jenkins' Road to Wonderland" is an achingly human portrayal of a young man's journey to adulthood. This story is undeniably an enjoyable read that will excite and entertain you, but below the surface it's an exploration of life that has the potential to wreck you in ways the rest of the RTW series hasn't. There's no denying that this book was a hard read for me. Anyone who's read this series knows that the authors have not shied away from depicting hard times and tumult. We've had Izzy, the admirable heroine who takes everything life gives--much of it bad--and keeps on ticking while making her fair share of bad decisions (Izzy Moffit's Road to Wonderland); Paris, the bright, beautiful spirit broken by life and sent down a path of self-destruction (Paris Hemsworth's Road to Wonderland); Ethan, the tragic hero who loses himself to grief and takes a ton of wrong turns in life before settling in his skin to find the promise of peace (Ethan Walker's Road to Wonderland); and Max, the tortured, sensitive soul who overcomes adversity to become a stunning man that you want in your corner as much as you want to be in his (Max Colton's Road to Wonderland). On these roads to wonderland, we've experienced death, heartache, physical and emotional abuse, addiction, depression and violence. We've had flawed characters who practically somersault in a continual loop of mistakes before finding their feet on secure ground. This book is absent of many of its predecessors' conflicts, but it is nevertheless consuming.Read more ›
