This was a strange story. The story is told by a so-so teacher, in the first person. My first question, which never was answered, is what the title is all about. The author choses it because he overheard some students talking in a foreign language and used the word, which obviously stood out in the conversation. However, nowhere is the word defined or explained. I tried an Internet search and found the okay, but the only explanation was in a foreign language I could neither read nor understood. The author needed to explain this strange title, in my book. Throughout the book, the author also uses slang that, I guess, Brits use, but I was unfamiliar with it, and, again, no explanation was given for the words—they were just used time and again. It helps to understand the verbiage used. The teacher/author also skipped around from one event to another, from one timeframe to another throughout the book, so I was a bit confused about just what was going on. In addition, some of the events/incidents were not well explained or discussed, which further left we wanting. I guessed the author had a plot and/or storyline for the book, but it definitely was not very clear to me. The teacher also was not very good at his job, and I saw no redeeming qualities in him—I think it would have been a better story if the teacher was more humane and understanding, and more like what we normally expect from a teacher, not to mention an adult. In short, I found the story difficult to understand and difficult to get through. I received this from Library Thing to read and review. ( )
