I didn t hate this book It kept me hooked till the end and the writing style was good at least for one character But there were so many issues with this bookI don t know much about what American high schools were like back in early 2000s but this author made it seem as if all rich kids cared about was money drugs parties alcohol and sexWe are told the story of an entire week from the perspective of many characters yet with the exception of the main character every character felt like the previous one with the only difference being their situation That was the only thing that kept them from blending into one anotherAll these rich kids cared about was when they are going to get their next drug and when they can have sex with someone The author tries to portray them as just lonely rich kids who have no love or attention from their parents who are too busy making money but it completely fails at that These characters don t even feel like human beingsThe main character whose name is Mike is the beloved drug dealer his work name is White Mike which is completely stupid and doesn t protect your identity especially when you work with people who know you He is taking a year gap before Uni and spends his time selling drugs How he managed to hide from the police I don t know He s pretty open about it and doesn t seem to think anyone would rat out on him White Mike is portrayed as this genius kid who does well without trying and is very blunt about his opinions He doesn t do drugs a fact told so many times but finds no problems in selling it to kids his own age He lives alone because his father is too busy with work In other words here we have an intelligent antisocial rich kid who is lonely Yes White Mike is lonely His report card is not that much different from other students and people around him are generally nice towards him Maybe I m being harsh but we never get an understanding of why he decided to sell drugs You don t just do that because you re bored There is a reason and we re never given that Being lonely makes it likely that he would take drugs but not sell themMoving on most of these kids despite spending most of their time drinking and doing drugs excel in school They have scholarships and acceptance letters and what not I m not trying to say that people who drink and or do drugs can t excel in school No I m confused as to how they are excelling In the entire week no one studied once They just do very well yet the manner in which they speak and think doesn t replicate the supposed 90s they are getting A great example is when a student says he wants to go into medicine but the only classes he s taking are Molecular bio Latin English and History Now I don t know how American schools work but I m pretty sure you need than that if you want to go into medicine specifically chemistry It s a minor detail but this whole book is so jumbled that it stands outCharacters as I ve said are so shallow because the author didn t take the time to flesh them out He also puts in characters that have no impact to the story and give really bad stereotypes to different groups of minorities For example Japanese women having small feet I don t know what that had to do with the story at allThe worst part of this story was that there is one character who you know from the beginning set up to be this really creepy messed up person You know something bad it going to happen involving them but why they are like that is never given They re just the textbook evil character And when the climax occurs it s just messy Nothing makes sense as to why this person is doing what they are doing and it just ends on that note Nobody gets admonished or punished for breaking the law Nobody s story gets concluded Just climax and a short random reflection and makes no impact to the story

Aha Stumbling around my local Borders as I was looking for something to while away the dead spots during a family Christmas my eye was drawn to a stark modern cover design with blurb that pressed all the right buttons Stunning debut it said 10 points he s in danger of doing for his generation what I did for mine Hunter S Thompson it said 15 points the bright lights of acid and the ferocity of speed it said another 15 points Twelve is a novel that completely satisfied my criteria for random book selection You can see why I took it homeSet in New York over the 5 days leading up to New Year it s the story of a bunch of late teens looking for a party It spans the classes from the ghettos of the Bronx to the brownstones on Park Avenue telling the story of a group of kids all loosely connected by the same desire for a big New Year s bash and all destined to end up at the same house for the big nightIt uses the neat narrative trick of telling the story from many character s point of view White Mike is our main protagonist a small time dealer in weed and coke who never touches his own supply Other characters include the rich geek who s brother used to be a coke addict the unencumbered prom ueen and the drug addled mess of self consciousness that is the party girl Each one tells their story over the 5 days and each one gives us an insight into their own peculiar brand of teenage angstYou can tell from that precis that this is going to be a difficult novel to carry off there s not an awful lot to work with let alone a lot of originality and unfortunately Twelve doesn t manage it This is another one of those desperate to shock novels Apparently we should be shocked that kids in their late teens smoke weed We should be shocked that they take cocaine We should be shocked that drugs make up so much of their lives and that they overstep boundaries because of themSo this is mostly regurgitated pap He s trying to be make an East Coast version of Brett Easton Ellis Less Than Zero and he really doesn t succeed On top of that it s made all the disappointing by the overt privilege and ego of the author Never have I read a book before where the author so desperately wants us to think that the book is autobiographical because he s made the character he wants us to think is him so coolAdd to that a set of completely vacuous two dimensional characters a plot so weak it couldn t snap spaghetti a fictional device clumsily created and then never actually used and a denoument that smacks of the last role playing game the author played and what you get left with is a completely disatisfying 2 hour readShame on the publishers for publishing it shame on the parents for funding the little twat through school and letting him live out his desire to be a novelist I m sure he got a good education Hopefully he learned a trade He ll need it

    I don't understand why this book was such a sensation when it came out Okay I sorta do the author was only seventeen his father is a rich publishing figure and Hunter S Thompson wrote a blurb However none of that makes this a good book In fact I couldn't stand itI don't think Nick McDonell is without talent but this book definitely betrayed his age It was like he was trying to prove how grown up he was by wr
