While the book was interesting enough to keep me wanting to find out what was going to happen, in the end it fell flat for me. The characters really weren't very interesting and there is no sense of place other than numerous mentions of how hot it is in Texas. This novel could have been set in Minnesota just as well and it would have made little difference. There is just no atmosphere at all. Finally, there is the talking muffin that weaves its way through the story and gives the book it title of Muffin Man. I simply do not get this part of the story at all.
At first, "Muffin Man" was on the "toss it out list". It just didn't grab me. I liked the characters well enough, was familiar with the locale, but just didn't see how this was going to keep me interested. So I put it down for a day or so. Funny thing was, I kept wondering to myself, "Okay, what's next?". So I'd read another chapter or less, put it down, and find myself wondering again, "Okay, now what?" I kept doing this over and over until I had finished the book!
Even now, I'm not sure I really liked it but it still leaves me wondering, "Okay, wonder where this could go in a future novel....."
"But this time, for the first time, John also saw what he was. Not the victim of injustice, not the unwilling hostage of two well-meaning but fantastically dysfunctional parents. Just an ungrateful teenager, a cornered ego, lashing out to make sure the ones responsible for his misery felt the sting of it."
This line summarizes the tension in the book between the main character and his father and the author does an excellent job in understanding both sides.
Very worthwhile read.
