At first I had no idea why I even wanted to read a book called "Rumble Fish." That was very wrong of me. I never expected a book with a title like that to turn out as deep, and thought provoking as it was. I sat down with it, planning to read for a half hour, but I ended up reading the entire book in one sitting. Yes, it was very easy to read, no it wasn't easy to understand. After reading, you will think you understand, but you will come to understand that you won't understand it right off the bat. I sat there thinking about what had just happened. I was completely blown away. I had always wanted to live in a big city, like the one in the book, but now I am having second thoughts. I have never been in a fight, let alone a gang fight, with knives. I can't imagine how Rusty-James can just push the thought aside, and be so cool about it. He made me look like a big [wimp]. I didn't even try to understand what was up with Motorcycle Boy. First of all, what kind of a name is Motorcycle Boy, anyway. I don't even know his real name which makes it pretty much impossible to understand his personality.
It might look easy, but looks can be deceiving.
