I really enjoyed reading this book, Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn, because it shows how the male mind works when they are fifteen. However, there were some parts in this novel that I did not like, for example, when Gideon was alienated because basically everyone else was a druggie. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to get into a teenage boy's mind at work.
INSIDE THE MIND OF GIDEON RAYBURN takes place at a fancy New England prep school, and Gideon is a new kid from Virginia who feels like a fish out of water. The other students are all rich and good looking and from exotic places. Gideon is only there because his father got him in on "a favor." In an attempt to bond with his two roommates, Nick and Cullen, Gideon tells them a story about his girlfriend, a yellow thong, and nearly losing his virginity.
Hearing the story, Nick and Cullen come up with "the bet" involving the sassy Molly McGarry and a Halloween deadline. Gideon gets to know Molly especially when they share a Spanish class project and starts to like the feisty girl who hails from "the McGarry's of Buffalo, New York," a not-so-exotic place either.
Gideon finds himself distracted from "the bet" and pleasing his roommates when the sexy Pilar Benitz-Jones begins paying attention to him. Molly might be cute and sassy, but if Gideon could snag Pilar, it would be "legendary."
INSIDE THE MIND OF GIDEON RAYBURN puts a twist on the typical prep school novel with the mysterious narrator hearing Gideon's thoughts and telling the story through these thoughts. This device leads to many elements of humor, especially when the narrator makes fun of Gideon for his thoughts about girls.Read more ›
