This book was a bit boring. The switch between the two narrators was not at all confusing. Using bad language was a good writing technique because it emphasize that Shelter (the murderer) was mad. It includes big words like; scrounger, circumstances and distinctions. This may cause difficulty for the younger generation and may also be disturbing.
The author writes the book in a style that I've never met. He changes narrators often. This helps the reader to understand how both characters feel about the situation.
To conclude I feel that this book was relatively boring, but I have learned how hard it is to live on the streets.

this is quite a good read, although i disliked the genre.
i read a lot of books, but i have never come across a book like this. it seems that a school assignment can bring you to a new type of book. i think that the two person narration is confusing! i had no idea what the two people were going on about!
but in the end, it was worthwhile- it is an interesting read even though i couldnt read it all in one sitting- it was too boring!
