Crazy is Good in Klavan's new book!!,
This review is from: Crazy Dangerous (Hardcover)
Fast-paced, humorous, with the flippancy that only a teen-aged boy narrator/protagonist can pull off, "Crazy Dangerous" is one of the best YA novels I've read in ages with a male at its heart. For those reasons alone anyone would enjoy this book, but there's so much more to it! A sort of John Green meets James Patterson...
Andrew Klavan, an Edgar Award-Winning author lives up to his
reputation with this one...and I can't wait to read his other books.
As our famous Stephen Tyler of American Idol and Aerosmith fame said this week:
"Courage is fear that's said it's prayers."
And Mr. Klavan said:
"Do right. Fear Nothing."
Both quotes close to Scripture and honest truths played out in "Crazy Dangerous."
The inspirational aspects of the book have to do with following what we know is the right thing
despite all the outward pressures we have surrounding us to do otherwise.
This is a lesson any of us can learn and relearn at any age.
That's what makes this book the perfect cross over fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey, the laughter over the spunky protagonist, Sam, the seriousness of helping those in dire need, and the reminders...
You decide if this is an awesome thriller, or not once you've read it. I rate it 4 stars.
