Product description

Review

One of the most original books of the last ten years ... Wonderful (The Los Angeles TIMES)

Sparkling writing ... Block's extravagantly imaginative setting and finely honed perspectives remind the reader that there is magic everywhere (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

Block's imagination is startling throughout, and her writing is both street-cool and poetic. The series is hugely moreish... (Gay Tiimes)

Book Description

The first book in the impossibly-cool and massively-acclaimed Dangerous Angels series. Has the potential to be a cult phenomenon...

I stumbled across the title of this book while searching for something else on Amazon and decided to order it from my local bookshop. Well all I can say is ... WOW !! I ADORE this book. I love the writing style, the characters and the wonderful feeling it left me with when I finished reading [in ONE day I might add!] It was so great, that when I had read it, I turned to the beginning and read it again. This is unheard of for me. The story pulls you into Weetzie's world and you just want to be her and have the wonderful kinds of relationships she has. There are sad moments too but I just loved it, loved it, loved it. I'm desperate now to read any of FLB's other books but they are proving extremely difficult to find here in the UK ... Oh well, Amazon here I come. :o)

This is definately one of my favourite books - it is beautiful, powerful, strange, real, unnerving, thoughtful, and absolutely wonderfully writen. I like it so much I have a hard time saying why, all I know is I could read it forever and never be bored with the characters, the lanscape, the ideas and the strengths.
One reviewer said they didn't think it was suitable for younger readers; and yes, it does deal with fairly adult themes, but in a soft, kind way, breaking ideas gentley; and while, threesomes are had, and charachters run away to covens of creepy voodoo witches, the charachters are always good, they act only out of love, and if I wanted to learn about soem of the "unsuitable" tiongs in life, i would want to do it through this book.
Block says she has always asosciated writing with love, and this slim volume more than proves this. Her charachters react, and act, always out of love, they are kind, but real. Block doeasn't hide any of their moments or their bad times from us, and this is what makes this book a stroke of genious.

I first read Weetzie Bat in 9th grade....and I was almost shocked by how good it was. I know the book's not especially realistic, but it was one of the first I'd ever read that dared to be honest enough to say that sex can be both an enjoyable, natural thing, as well as an incredibly scary, dangerous thing...that someone who's gay could be a kind, funny, foolish normal person...things I'd always sort of suspected, but that no one had ever told me. Besides, even if all that stuff still bothers you, Francesca Lia Block's style is just to incredible to pass up....I don't know how to describe it, but her prose is just so rich and original, you can almost taste it...

This is not a book, it is a beautiful stanza of a magical poem that has texture, sound, flavor and scent. It's powerful stuff - I can only read this book (and the rest of the wonderfully potent series) once a year or so... It is a literary buzz without any hangover. Buy it, read it, and loan it out!

lanky lizards this was such a slinkster cool book. I have read it so many times the cover is falling off. i think it is good for kids my age to have their eyes opened to other places besides their safe, snug, and secure home. this is something that you have to read and have a very active imagination to understand and enjoy the book completely. lik i said it is a must read.

This book defines how I have always felt about Los Angeles. Although brief the book is charming and its simplistic characters bring light to the city. In 88 pages Block's nostalgic imagery shows Los Angeles as a city of dreams as opposed to simply the mecca of the movies. A great read!

This is a marvelous, surreal story written in quasi-poetic style, but with a definite fairy-tale flavor. It's a quick but enthralling read, and it leaves you feeling giddy and free. The sequels are equally terrific, andi recommend them all. just read this book...
