All the Ugly and Wonderful Things: A Novel

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things: A Novel - Bryn Greenwood If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck -then it is most likely is a duck. In my opinion this book is *only* about violence and pedophilia no matter how wonderfully it was written. Yes Kellen and Wavy waited, yes the book was ultimately about love - but still, 13 years old?

And it WAS a wonderfully written book, and it even made me cry in parts -so it did hit me emotionally.

I realize that this book took me out of my comfort zone just because it was about people and types of people I would never know. (drug dealers, runners, thugs and drug manufacturers) The look into their lives was quite interesting.

Lastly, I read to take myself out of my real life. I read for entertainment and I found this book fascinating but not entertaining. It was a depressing read and I'm so sorry that the publisher chose not to explain what this book really was about -if they had I would never have chosen it.
