Of course this is a book about growing up, learning how to take care of yourself, doing chores, getting a job and keeping a promise.But There Is a Generation is also a very funny road movie about two boys who get into all kinds of trouble Somehow, they always find a way out, meet new people and keep going hoping to find each other again, but mostly finding themselves after committing a horrible crime.Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of the book.
The story never got going and I just lost interest I feel this is a pseudo rehash of All the Pretty Horses 1.5 to 2 stars out of 5
it s like richard laymon but without all the gore and rape one improbable event follows another and at the end you just don t know what to think of it all xD
I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.I just found the plot confusing and very weak.Did not like this at all.
