    The world unmakes stuff faster than people can make it. Month by month our lives spiral forth into the future, with each moment shaping who we are and who we will become It is no wonder that the pivotal years of adolescence, the stage of development classified by Erik Erikson as the Identity vs Role Confusion stage, is fertile land

    Sometimes I look forward to reviewing a book other times it can feel like an unwanted chore, like mopping the floor This falls into the latter category Not because I didn t enjoy it I did but because I can t find much to say about it It s about a thirteen year old boy who is bullied at school As a parent boys are difficult at thirteen The spontaneity

    David Mitchell is known for dazzling innovation and dizzying ambition Intricately structured novels such as Cloud Atlas and Ghostwritten are grand kaleidoscopes of intersecting voices and places This book is a change of pace, however It focuses on a single character in a single location But despite its narrowed scope, it is no less powerful or captivating than his other works.Jason Taylor is our her

    Just as I opened the cover of the book, I was hit by a barrage of praise for the book comments May be I should have stopped right there But I didn t Hence this review.When I watch a Hollywood movie or a TV show involving American schools, I see schoolkids overly concerned with social status and pecking order There are these popular and cool kids, then there are nerds and other such stereotypes They have to co

    A Spelling TestI kept this book on the shelf for a few years, before thinking I was ready to read it I didn t want to break the spell of the first two David Mitchell books that I had read I didn t really like Cloud Atlas and I was a bit apprehensive about the subject matter of a young teenage boy Ultimately, it was very much a book of two halves for me Teenage Mates LandThe first half captured male teenagerdom in the p
