Fictional Notes To Himself From Add A Unique Flavor Of Hope Grades Daniel Kraus I had really looked forward to reading this it has great reviews, and I ve liked some of the author s other work Everybody seems to have loved Leonard Peacock, and I m just sitting over here like.whatever.He was interesting enough, I guess, for the first third of the book Then he kinda got repetitious and boring and he just exudes the kind of pretentious angst that feels fake to me I wanted to feel something about this book, but in the end, I really just.don t.The trauma that causes LP to want to kill himself is only hinted at, and I think that s a big part of why he made me feel a little disconnected from what was going on with him I mean, obviously I don t want a long, drawn out, detailed description, but something than what we got in this narrative seems required, at least if I m going to feel any empathy for Leonard s mental illness.As it stands, I just found myself irritated with him, because he wants people to behave in certain ways and when they don t, he either blows up or disengages Not a very sympathetic dude.None of the other characters get enough treatment in the narrative to really know them, so they re all flat and static and just background noise in Leonard s manifesto, so I couldn t really connect with them either.All in all, I d have to say that this is a case of a missed connection The writing itself is stylistically okay, but I didn t enjoy the other facets of the story much at all I also thought it climaxed super early, and then everything from there on was extraneous and kinda boring.TL DR Not my cup Couldn t connect with the characters Better luck to the next reader. In this powerful and poignant novel which also manages to be quite funny at times astute readers will detect echoes of one of the seminal works of Young Adult literature Leonard Peacock is a Holden Caulfield for the millennial generation Leonard, however, harbors an anguish borne of something far damaging than the generalized disillusionment with phonies that plagued Holden Like Holden, Leonard s has irretrievably lost his childhood innocence But Leonard s pain is far personal, and as we follow Leonard through what he repeatedly claims will be the last day of his life, we increasingly empathize with him as the source of his depression and desperation becomes apparent.As with many YA novels, the adults in Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock are ineffectual when they re not being downright mean and dismissive Leonard s mother is probably one of the most detestable adults ever to appear in a YA novel Herr Silverman, Leonard s Holocaust studies teacher, is the one exception Like Leonard, Herr Silverman harbors a secret that makes him feel different from most of his peers And he is the one adult in the novel who makes a genuine effort to connect with Leonard and understand him.This is by no means an easy novel to read, but I suspect most will want to plow through it as I did because Quick s writing resonates so honestly, and for all his quirks and hard earned adolescent angst, Leonard is a likeable character The book s title remains a mystery intentionally, I believe Is it a plea for forgiveness signed by Leonard, as in a note or a letter Or is it a plea for forgiveness that is being addressed to Leonard The story provides justification for either interpretation, and the title s opacity is but one of a number of ambiguities central to the novel. I saw this book in my sons backpack as I rifled through the contents for any signs that Brent was attempting a father like role in his life I made note of what kind of book it was and bought myself a copy off of and I don t know if the contents of the book make it appropriate for his age.He s 13, he should be playing catch with his father, not that usurper Brent for whom I have contempt for.This book is sexual, depressing, and while I didn t finish it I can t imagine my son should be reading things like this.

Brilliant foray in the mind of a troubled eighteen year old struggling to find both a purpose and a place in his disenfranchised world Leonard Peacock is the neglected son of a washed out rocker and his narcissistic wife who leave him to fend for himself in suburban New Jersey Highly intelligent and sensitive, he is searching for anything to reel him back to feel part of humanity He lives like an outsider, observing adults around him, looking for a lifeline to prove that life is worth the struggle Instead he sees the anger, frustration, and despair around him, making him feel the bleakness of his own existence He rails at being a victim, his fury pushes him to prepare a mad scheme for retribution that will quench his thirst to be finally noticed and counted.Matthew Quick captures the despair of the ghosts of society, the people who blend into the background, those without advocates to help them battle the enemies killing their spirit Leonard learns he is not invisible, but the ability to be seen and heard will only happen when he realizes he must forge ahead and help himself His parents will never do what he thinks they should, the world does not operate fairly, but if he looks hard enough, he will create what he needs by using his greatest resource himself.
