    Posted at Shelf Inflicted If I hadn t come across Mariel s review, I d probably never have found out about this chilling story To my surprise, it won multiple literary awards and was adapted to film I really need to get out from under my rock often Boy A is Jack, newly released from prison for the brutal killing of a young girl He was a child himself when the crime occurred Now he is 24 years old and trying to adjust to a world that has passed him by while he was imprisoned This story is not an exploration of the criminal mind, or about life in prison It is about Jack s life as an adult living under an assumed identity while he works, makes friends, and finds love Jack has the support of his uncle Terry, who helps him adjust to life on the outside while protecting him from those who would not let him live his life if they knew about his crime I am reminded of Walter Mosley s Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned, a gripping story about a black man released from prison for a murder he committed while in a jealous rage This story is differ...

    Dado el evidente sensacionalismo del tema, empec su lectura con mucho recelo A las pocas p ginas se hab an evaporado todas mis reticencias El autor consigue h bilmente meterse y meterte en la dif cil piel de este ni o joven la historia discurre en varios planos temporales que intenta enderezar su vida despu s del tr gico suceso que le llev al correccional, a la c rcel y, por ltimo, a inventarse una identidad que le permitiera poder seguir con su vida Puede alguien que comete un acto atroz reinsertarse en la sociedad Tiene derecho a ello Un solo acto, por tremendo y espeluznante que sea, puede condicionar el resto de la vida de una persona La gente con la que convivir esta persona una vez cumplida su pena tiene derecho a saber qu hizo Cu nto de lo que somos o hacemos hay que achacarlo a las circunstancias A todo ello nos impele el autor a dar una respuesta en esta novela sobre la identidad y la responsabilidad en base a un caso en el que ese hecho dram tico ocurre en la infancia o en los primeros a os de la juventud.Todos somos conscientes de c mo hemos cambiado a lo largo de los a os Todos tenemos cosas de qu avergonzarnos y todos nos hemos preguntado alguna vez c mo fuimos capaces de comportarnos de esa forma en aquella situaci n Porque no somos la misma persona durante todo el transcurso d...

    This isn t a spoiler tag but a longwinded tag I m embarrassed tag Words are not my first emotional language I ll think without words and later try to come up with some that fit what I was feeling, if enough of it sticks by me through the thickness and thinness The way I understand assuming I understand what I believe I understand things is feeling out what people mean based on whatever I can get out of posture, tone, facial movements, eyes that don t smile, spaces between words and silences My social retardedness definitions I can t be right cause I do the wrong thing a lot What is around them, what isn t I ll want to match it with my own Bittersweet smile Heartbroken movement of lips with words unsaid It probably comes out of being shy The watching is from hope that there s to life Sometimes it is nothing I get and another part of my life disappears from me like one of those time eaters from Stephen King s The Langoliers not even with their sharp teeth It isn t important enough to be painful Sometimes it ll later occur to me that something that happened before reminds me of something else most of the time that something is movies, or built up stories I ve made up to make my own surroundings feel vivid and worth getting up for What I really live for is to take a start of someth...

    Sometimes, award committees get it right often they don t The Pulitzer committee may leave you puzzled the Caldecott or Newbery committees do what they must to arrive at some sort of consensus often the lack of consensus is apparent in the staggering number of Honor books they also award With Boy A, the 2004 John Llewellyn Rhys Prize and the 2005 Waverton Good Read Award committees got it right.Told with a relentless dread, the novel presents the story of a damaged youth Boy A as a steady, relentless pursuit to the inevitable Readers are asked to identify with a protagonist whose past is defined by a horrible crime his own , as well as the crimes committed against him by people who couldn t know how they hurt him, didn t care what effect their behavior might have on an already suffering youth, and those whose moral arrogance overrode any opportunity for compassion or understanding some readers may feel the same way While not an overly optimistic book, or a fairy tale everything will be alright story, Boy A does leave readers some readers with the hope that those who can pick themselves up, those who do start all over again, will succe...

    Okay I went back and took stars off some of my other reviews because this is one of those pieces of art that reminds you that most people are not hitting the ideal Yes art is subjective, but somethings seem to just have something special that other pieces don t have This is one of those pieces Out of five stars I give it 7 and 1 2 This book has a format that makes it flow Instead of a few long chapters there are a lot of short chapters named for the letters of the alphabet such as A is for Apple, Bad Apple Things that I think we tend to subconsciously ignore but when you are paying attention add interesting layers into the book This is by far the most moving book I have ever read All of the characters come off as real without any defined evil , or at least leaving this up to interpretation As the book states at one point people are complicated Even with the devastating plo...

    Hello there FEELINGS, how are you today I was ready to give this two stars until the 50% mark The story moved along a little too slowly for me, a little too haphazardly Sure, the characters were, maybe great isn t the right word, but intriguing Ever so intriguing Still, I thought, this will probably get two stars Man, was I wrong Boy A will be on my top reads of 2015 I m considering bumping up my rating to five stars Because that last half Emotions Scattered all over the place I m not sorry to say some of my friends literally told me to take it easy, not ramble so much incoherent gushing Right now I m still not done gushing out my feels for this book, so I apologize if this review is a mess Boy A is the story of Jack, who after years in prison is now released to the real world His crime When he was in his early teens, he and another boy murdered a young girl, Angela, and it became a national tragedy The boys were hounded, terrorized by media, and generally what you d expect When Jack is released from prison he gets to choose his own name, which he decides will be Jack In the real world he is nobody, a new perso...

    It mirrors the tragic story of Jamie Bulger We meet Jack as he is released back in to society secretly after spending all his young life in institutions and prisons He is supported by the child like faith his support officer, Terry, has in him to be a functioning member of society Everything is difficult for Jack as he hasn t had a life yet and he suddenly has a freedom to experience what for others are ordinary things Of course, inevitably events catch up with him and through the unrelenting spite and resentfulness of Zeb, Terry s son, he is exposed once again to the anger of society for his wicked child hood crime of murder of a young girl Without Boy B, you feel sure he would never have had the nerve to do this but there are many influences on him leading him inexorably to this path in his life.Jack starts very warily and as events progress it might be alright He lives very much in the present as his experiences unfold Every character is understandable as the author tracks heir thought process I didn t really feel a strong like or dislike for any one as they are all just people at the mercy of their own wants and character flaws Zeb brings it all down eventually but even he is understandable in his rage at his neglectful father Terry It s funny that never really feel revulsion for Boy A, it is a head shaking sadness that any of it ever happened Such...
