This book is amazing. Not for some sappy reason that my mom or my sister would like, such as "Oh it's so wonderfull, it teaches me about rainbows and puppies!" or "It has such good writing, it really tells you something that comforts you." It's not even true, but events very similar are happening every day. I live in a century village in Ohio, and no one wants you to know crap like this is happening. It isn't nice at all, but it really brings you back in touch with earth.

A collection of short stories featuring an extremely diverse batch of characters. The stories don't really have anything to do with each other, but the characters are tied together under the extremely undeveloped premise of them being in an "angry management" group because of the traumatizing experiences they have gone through.

This book was thought-provoking. That being said, the stories are clearly a platform for Crutcher's extremely liberal ideology. A few too many of the characters are rather two-dimensional, and it feels like Crutcher wrote stereotypes as he was trying too hard to get his point across. It felt like Crutcher's primary objective was to get the reader upset enough to take action on issues such as homophobia and domestic abuse, and that the story was just a vehicle for that. Although I agree with many of the points Crutcher tries to make, I didn't like the book because it didn't feel like a book so much as something spewed from up top a soapbox.

I've read quite literally everything by Chris Crutcher, but for some reason, this one sticks in my head. This book, which is actually a collection of long-ish short stories, elaborates on the end of some of Crutcher's books, and also tells the stories of some minor characters. The story centering on Montana West, who was only a minor character in another of Crutcher's books, is fantastic. I would recommend this book to virtually anyone.
