Wow! This book is...uh...I don't even know how to categorize it, and that's a good thing! Maybe I can come up with some adjectives: unique, twisted, dark, hilarious, crazy, insane, raw, dirty, raunchy (oops, it says that in the description, but really, the word fits!) suspenseful, funny, real (well, maybe not the crime part - at least, I hope not!) and unlike anything I've ever read before! I'm sure there are other, better words, but I'm not a thesaurus, and I'm kind of running late on this review as it is, so there!

Now as a girl - I suppose technically I'm a "woman", but that word makes me feel so... old! - this very descriptive look inside the minds of teenage boys was just a little unsettling. C.W. Slater, I don't know who you are, but I have a feeling you're telling it like it really is inside these twisted little boy brains. Anyway, after all the girly, new adult romance novels I've been reading, "Fine Young Gentlemen" was a refreshing change of pace.

Characters. Okay. Jacob is a jerk! He's the one I love to hate!!! He's so demented, it's actually funny! The birds, oh my God, the birds!!! I'm not going to go into detail about the birds, but I was literally snorting in laughter, hoping that I didn't wake the kids so late at night!

Craig. He may seem all sweetness and light, but he's got a jerk side to him, too.

And Matt. Matt is also an jerk, but he's more of a dorky, Holden Caulfield kind of jerk. I like him, but sometimes I just have to cringe at the stupid things he does!

So the take home message from this review? Guys are jerks! But we already knew that, hehe! The real take home message is that if you're up for it, this book is a fantastic read, and C.W. Slater is rocking it as a debut author!

I gather the book is teen lit, so as a middle-aged man, I'm not the target audience. But as fan of Brett Ellis' 'Less than zero' when I was a teenager, thought I'd take Slater's book along as holiday reading. Am glad I did.

'Less than zero' was a thrill to read as a teenager, but little of it seemed believable. Too outlandish, but entertaining in a forbidding way.

'Fine young gentlemen' on the other hand is satisfyingly dark, twisted and funny, but somehow more realistic. Slater seems to have channeled an insider's view of the angst simmering under the veneer of respectability in a fictional boys school in Toronto. Money, class, race, and status anxiety are at play. And above all sex and sexual frustration. Slater makes the unlikely seem credible, and sucks you into the plot as an unwitting bystander.

I felt the book started off a bit slow, but after a major plot development (won't spoil it for you in this review) the book really picked up momentum and I and couldn't put it down. I'll definitely be reading book two of the series whenever it comes out. I hope it's in time for my next holiday! Keep it going CW Slater.

HASH(0x9c5bec60) out of 5 stars Cleverly Dark and Twisted...Who Said that Private High Schools are Perfect?!? Dec 19 2013
By DI - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Fine Young Gentleman would make for an awesome television series..the good and iconic kind, sort of like Twin Peaks by David Lynch. It is hip with its references, has an atmosphere to it, is incredibly fast and highly visual (making it easy to both relate and imagine the characters).

The first couple of pages were a bit grotesque, but over all as a whole, I wouldn't say the book is too shocking or vulgar (it is only vulgar to set up the story or to make the characters believable). It is interesting, and I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a cult classic. Especially because it is a work that doesn't compromise, has a developed a point of view -- and with all of its edgyness, it still manages to be a thought-provoking satire of high school; hormones and the passage into adulthood.

Best of all, this isn't your typical fluffy account of what teenagehood should look like. It ia authenticity mixed with twisted fantasy. As C.W.Slater isn't some unimaginative author, who is out of touch with the world that he describes. He really understands the perspectives of the various characters, and dwells into their minds. Making all the portrayals, as much as they are tragically flawed, completely human-like and relatable --whether its the disillusioned sex-driven Matt with a conscience, or the popular football player who comits a murder.

So I would say this book is one of my favorites. For Slater paints a complex, fun yet suspenseful world, with a karmic duality that tugs at your heartstrings...making you wonder what is fair, who will triumph in the end -- and lastly, will there be another missing person...

HASH(0x9c31e1c8) out of 5 stars Amazing Y/A Suspense March 17 2014
By Jasmyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was an absolute heart stopping read! I advise you definitely heed the warning before reading this book. The title may be called Fine Young Gentleman but the things these guys get into falls no where under the gentleman category. This was a dark and intense look into the minds of three teenage boys. Some things were expected like constantly wanting to get laid but other things will totally blow your mind. For example the psychopathic tendencies one of the characters starts to exhibit and eventually gives into. The point of view changed between each boy as well as some secondary characters and the author was exceptional at capturing and conveying each of their voices. Throughout the story every one of the guys became a bad guy in some way so you won't know which direction the story will take until the very end. It's so unlike anything I've read before. It's dark, hilarious, suspenseful, and edgy. It's a must read and you won't be disappointed. I give this a 5/5 rating and I absolutely recommend this read. Available at Amazon.com.

I was given a copy from the author for a honest review.

HASH(0x9cadb9cc) out of 5 stars FYI on FYG! Aug. 15 2014
By Tyler Denni Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Long story short: a truly stunning book.

Firstly, as a 17 year old male myself I found the matter-of-fact writing style to be greatly indicative of the male teenage mind, and thus helped really give an insight to the characters.

Speaking of which, character development holds is of definite gravitas in this book. At the start, you have what are essentially three 'average Joe' guys just trying to make it through school. However, as the plot thickens and you see that everyone in life is at least a little bit twisted and you're left continuously double-guessing on who are really saints and who are really sinners in the book. Note - this book is very annoying due to the fact that as much as you want to, you cannot bring yourself to put it down!

Overall, I think these book is easily worthy of 5 stars, and that C.W. Slater is worth a lot more commendation than they have received.

HASH(0x9ccdc600) out of 5 stars crazy psychological heart-pounding ride! Oct. 20 2013
By motherof2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
wow, what a crazy psychological heart-pounding ride!

We're introduced to a group of boys who attend a private school. They are like a lot of other boys on the surface - obsessed with girls and sex, football and parties

but about 1/2 way you realize some of these boys are twisted. Okay, most of them. And it's hard to tell who's really going to crack and who's actually cracking

and why.

The best part about this book was the character development. Up until the end, I wasn't 100% sure who was wrong and right, who was actually crazy and who wasn't.

Very entertaining, a fast book - I enjoyed it!

HASH(0x9c897f30) out of 5 stars Fine Young Gentlemen Review Nov. 5 2013
By erin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I was initially interested in this book for the male point of view that is often unheard of in Young Adult Literature. Slater did not disappoint on that front. Gone are the images of quiet, kindhearted gentleman and rough around the edges sweet on the inside bad boys. Instead Slater takes you into a darker and, lets be honest, more realistic world of teenage boys.

Although I felt at times the horniness of the boys was over exaggerated I really enjoyed the book. It was a nice change from many of the YA novels out there. However, please pay attention to the warning. This is not a story about love.

Fine Young Gentlemen tells an interesting story of the lives of three boys. Personally, I was more drawn to the stories of Craig and Max. Best friends since a young age Max’s inability to play football puts a wedge between them. Craig is left alone to deal with his darkened past and the consequences that stem from it. While Max struggles to accept who he is and relieve himself of his insecurities. Together, Craig and Max tell a story of finding yourself, overcoming hardships and an extremely strong friendship.

Although I wasn’t taken with Jacob as a character he was extremely interesting and I’m curious to see what he does next.

Overall I enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and displayed a wide array of personality traits and the plot was exciting. However, it wasn’t until the end of the book, when more information was brought into light, that I truly appreciated it. Fine Young Gentleman presents interesting commentary on justice, friendship and individual decisions.

Fine Young Gentlemen was a fun read and I am excited to see what Slater brings us next!
