About halfway through the book I felt like giving up I wasn't deeply involved with any of the characters the writing itself was well done but not amazing and I saw no point or direction to the story I finished it anyway because I hate giving up on a book I will say that I was pleasantly surprised with the second half The ending is a bit predictable but not overly so The last uarter of the book flows much uickly and smoothly than the preceding 34In the end I ended up liking it I didn't find it to be nearly as funny as it was billed to beI realize that this review seems odd and scattered And that is simply because there is something about this book that really bothered me I can't really bring what it is into words at the moment but I felt odd when I finished it simply because I had liked the ending a lot but still felt cold about the overall experience

Boonville“A brilliant new voice twitchy corny sly cackling and sad but most of all racing with vitality and goosing you to keep up Boonville is the creepy and hilarious coming of age story the territory deserves not your parents’ Vineland but your own”  Jonathan LethemBoonville is the story of John Gibson the reluctant heir of an alcoholic grandmother who fled the normalcy of her own “American family” to live in the redwoods surrounded north. I was sucked in by the review blurbs on the back Confederacy of Dunces and Tom Robbins and by the title cause I was in Boonville once and I'd like to go back Unfortunately the author must have paid a steep price for those reviews or he has one hell of an agent It started off ok was a little funny at times but uickly fell into a mess of incredibly boring borderline sexist and homophobic cliches with an afterthought of a plot It's a shame I wanted to like it and it read uickly but I was so distracted by the cartoonish depictions of everyone that I couldn't stand it Of course the hippie mom listens to Janis Joplin and of course the lesbians want to chop your genitals off Mr Anderson And of course the rednecks have cars on blocks and get into fights And of course the hotel has a kindly old barkeep SighAnd the plot the whole book seems to take place over a week Really A week Sigh
