Her writing is taut and expressive in all of her fiction, but the tight confines of short story writing has really brought out some of Hinton's best work. The stories are filled with an emotional resonance that stays with the reader.
Longtime fans will appreciate the second half of the book, which contains interviews with Hinton regarding all of her fiction, as well as the movies they inspired.
This book is a must-have for fans of S.E. Hinton, and for those new to her writing this is a wonderful introduction to the types of characters and themes she excels in writing about.
I don't see the emotion or the connection with the characters in this one- and it felt like the characters were just shadows of people going through random spots of time! I don't know of that was as a result of the disjointed fact that these were really just a bunch of disjointed short stories loosely held together by common characters or if the author has just lost her touch. Heck maybe I have just grown up and move on past Hinton's story telling techniques. Either way- it just was not something I enjoyed.
and one of the few writers kids are drawn to like a magnet, and it isn't just that she is so readable - many writers are - but that she writes about what many feel is the `real' world, with characters that have feelings we can all recognize as ones we know too well.
These stories about two close cousins, follow them through differing
episodes of their lives; the stories are alive with their joys and pain and we think of our own, and are thankful we have S.E. Hinton to help us realize these.
