Not as good as I thought it was going to be. My sister loves S.E. Hinton's books and I thought (with my odd Greaser kick lately) that I would try them out and Rumble Fish just let me down. ( )

I thoroughly disliked this book, partly because I thought it was poorly-written...which is not something I would have expected from this author. Off to the used bookstore it goes. ( )

This book is nice and okay the outsiders is much better but it's a good story ( )

A bit muddled until 2/3 of the way through, then a fairly strong plot emerges, and characters sharpen. I sort of wish she'd started there, though, at that place where the conflict between Rusty-James' worldview shifts because of TMB's mental illness becoming noticeable to him. A good novel, bit a great ending-of-a-novel. ( )
