Product Description

From the Publisher

Rusty-James knows he is a tough teen, but he wants to be even tougher, just like his older brother, the Motorcycle Boy. He wants to stay calm and laugh when things get dangerous, to be the strongest streetfighter and the most respected guy this side of the river.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought the book was a three, because i wasnt very intersted in the story line. It is about a young boy he is 14 tears old. it was about how hi life changed drasticly. If you are in to a unpreditable book this one is for you.

Rumble Fish was not an exciting book.Infact it was horribe I would not recommend this book to any reader. This book was written for special minds. This book is about Rusty James and his brother moter cycle boy they think that they are all bad and all but they are not. they end up loseing it all in the end.

By Jay
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rumble Fish made me anxious to find out about Rusty James and why he always fought for his "bad boy" reputation. The motorcycle boy is Rusty James's older brother and Rusty wanted to be an idol like his brother. This story took place in a big city.
Rumble Fish had an unpredictable ending that made me sad.I would recommend this book,but I wish it was more like the "Outsiders".

Format:Mass Market Paperback
rumble fish is a story about rusty-james, steve, and the motorcycle boy. the book was boring at times when the charaters where narrating back and forth. i found the book interesting when rusty-james was fighting or in a took place in a big city. it was not really predictable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rumble Fish Jan. 19 2004
By Fred
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The main characters name is Rusty James and he has had a troubled childhood. The other characters were his big brother known as the motorcycle boy and his best friend Steve. It gives you an idea of what it was like as a teenager growing up in the projects. It was in the projects of a somewhat big city. It keeps you guissing and could change your life.

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rumble fish is somewhat of a mystery that takes place in an urban setting.The reader is left wondering what Rusty James is up to do next.The reader might also feel confused about steve and Rusty Jame's relationship are they friends to the end or not?The motorcycle boy is a mysterious rebel that has a great deal of influence over Rustuy James as well as the characters.
just when you think the book is predictable it takes a wild twist.Rusty James finds himself in a perdicament where he cannot control what is going on around him.This book is not for people who are into happy endings.

4.0 out of 5 stars okay book Nov. 26 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
rumble fish was an over all okay book. i like s.e. hinton's books. after reading the outsiders for school i hooked on her books. they are different from all the other books that i read. rumble fish played on the lesson that the outsiders did. the importance of friendship, and street smart gets you farther than book smart, well in most cases. it was okay.

3.0 out of 5 stars My least favorite Hinton Book. July 3 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have always been a big fan of SE HINTON's book...but this is my least favorite of them all. I am not able to sympathize or relate to the characters in this one at all...and unlike THE OUTSIDERS, I don't find anything interesting about the characters.
