This was definitely not a "standard" book, but it challenges the reader to contemplate so many things at once that the rhythm is comforting in a way that routine is comforting, even during times of horror and disbelief. This book isn't for everyone, but it had all the elements to make it work for me. I was left with many unanswered questions, but I think that is the nature of the book, the time period, and people when confronted with situations which defy logic and faith. I rate this book a four. I've read many Holocaust novels and I definitely will put this on the list of top Holocaust related reads.
There are sparks of beauty, humor, childish experience, and political satire amongst this pseudo-children's book's pages. But the length makes those small moments of appreciation cold comfort.
Simply stated, unlike anything I've ever read...nursery rhyme, horror novel, kid's tall tale, Grand Guignol performance, Bosch/Breugel panorama..."amazing" doesn't even come close to covering it.
I don't usually read literary or symbolist novels but STARBOY is complex, dark and eerily childlike. Seemingly elemental yet deceptively profound. Can't honestly say I understood it all but, as I said, unlike anything I've ever read.
In many ways, almost a graphic novel in prose. Highly original & very, very different!
