Reviews

Review by: Kelly I. Hitchcock on Sep. 04, 2011 :
I was a little skeptical at first, but the story won me over and I think Nesbit's representation of the thoughts and feelings of a 14-year old were pretty honest and accurate. It was an easy enough read, with good plot placing, but suffered from some irritating word confusions (peddle vs. pedal, psyche vs. psych). Loved the ending.

Review by: Kari Guthrie on Jan. 08, 2011 :
An utterly engaging read. Eddy Funderburke is both naively sweet and almost pathologically warped. This novel reads like a terrifying glimpse into the teenaged mind of someone who will eventually grow up to be a very, very bad man. Kudos for a frightfully good read!

Review by: Chuck Baldwin on Sep. 01, 2009 :
Nesbit is a raunchy version of Clyde Edgerton, spinning a new generation's tales of the dirty south. This was money well spent.

Review by: Thomas F. Cook on July 18, 2009 :
Somewhere between Huck Finn and Holden Caulfield is Eddy Funderburke. This year-in-the-life novel of a fourteen year old boy with a secret lust for his mother is both extremely funny and somewhat horrifying. The combination of church group, Mountain Dew, crack whores, fiddle playing, masturbation, booze, prescription drugs, virginity and tetris made me laugh out loud.

Review by: Joshua Slater on July 07, 2009 :
A clever exploration of the high drama of adolescence combined with an unflinching yet unexaggerated attention to the problems of the rural poor in America. A satisfying read and quite enjoyable.
