Son of a Trickster Trickster #1 Download º 107 Read & download Son of a Trickster Trickster #1 Ly on his dad to pay the bills and support his new wife and step daughter Jared is only sixteen but feels like he is the one who must stabilize his family's life even look out for his elderly neighbours But he struggles to keep everything afloatand sometimes he blacks out And he puzzles over why his maternal grandmother has never liked him why she says he's the son of a trickster that he isn't human Mind you ravens speak to him even when he's not stoned You think you know Jared but you don't. Guys there s no review I hate writing than that of a book that s disappointed me I had been really looking forward to getting down with Canadian fantasy novel Son of a Trickster which promised an indigenous cast some teenage antics and the sort of magical goings on that usually tickle my fancy To boot I was also pumped to read something by Eden Robinson who has been written about in glowing terms by a few Canadian publications Unfortunately Son of a Trickster is an extremely unbalanced novel that dabbles a bit in everything without finding its own voiceOur protagonist sixteen year old Jared is a dude who s had a rough go of it His mom and dad both have substance abuse issues and since they split Jared s been subject to a slew of his mom s less than stellar boyfriends Though the reality and voice portrayed in this novel are important ones to have on display in our literature the realization of the world is banal and the writing isn t all that exciting either Or at least the Jared perspective chapters aren t all that excitingWhat s Robinson spends oodles of time introducing a cast of teenage characters whose voices were cringe inducing than realistic The dialogue these kids spout alternates between generic high school TV drama unconvincing declarations of emotion I m hunting for edibles and some painful virtue signalling Robinson also has this tendency to insert a popular song from a few years ago and have the kids sing the song I m not sure why this irked me so much I m usually a fan of real world art finding its way into my novels but it made the book feel forced The drinking habits of Jared his friends and family also take centre stage for the bulk of the novel Indeed there s not many chapters that pass by where the characters draw sober breaths In the right hands writing about addiction can be compelling empathy inducing and shocking in eual measure Instead the book falls into a tedious routine of having most chapters open with Jared waking up unsure of where he is or how he arrived in that particular predicament By the time Jared starts to change his ways the novel had lost most of my good faithWhen I look back on Son of a Trickster I think of the many great elements of the book that failed to come together for me Though I didn t touch on it much the fantasy aspect of the book really doesn t come into play until the last third of the novel and by then it s too little too late for Son of a Trickster It s a real shame that this book fell so flat for me especially since this books seems to have landed uite well with the press and my fellow Goodreadians Though I m not ready to drop the axe on the trilogy as a whole I doubt I ll be returning to Son of a Trickster s seuel later this year with any urgency
