Review by: Laura Susan Johnson on June 29, 2013 :
Sadly I admit I flew through this novel by mostly unknown but very talented Andrew Evich who has also written under the name Manley Foxx. IN MOTION is not for everyone. A youth called Felix is dismissed by his drug addicted mother because of his birth defect, and the book is his journey to finding who he is. While he is not innocent per se, he is very young, and learns most of his lessons in the hardest ways. Quite original and there's never a dull moment, truly. But again, if you're easily offended by tales of rent boys, pedophilia and hate crimes, you will probably want to avoid the works of Evich. I plan to soon read another one of his books, KILL 'EM AGAIN. Obviously, I am drawn to tales of boys in trouble. If you like J.T. LeRoy or Chuck Palahniuk, you might enjoy Evich.

Well I had no idea that this was based on an actual case, Now I know this I can look at it in a whole different light. I did find this book hard to get into at first but I am glad I kept with it. It is not an easy read and not for the faint hearted, but once I got into it I found it a gripping tale and really got caught up in it. The final chapters flew past I was so tied up in the story and I could not stop reading until I had finished. Well worth a look.

What a ride. The story grabbed me from the start, and is a wild and well-paced tale right to the end. Excellent character and place description, an alarming cast of corrupt characters, extreme violence, and a complicated plot that unfolds exactly as it should.
I kept stumbling over the constant use of lie instead of lay; for example, ‘he lie with his head on the judge’s lap.’ ‘He lie on his back and he choked on the puke…’.
There’s plenty of good advice, and loads of political and social observations with which I agree. While the story is timely and the social criticism valid, I found the characterisation of the boys a little unbelievable. The few I’ve met are not so insouciant; more feral and fearful and neurotic.
The major fault for me in the story is the lack of a good gay guy. All the decent adult males are heterosexual, all the other males are child molesters. An uninformed reader will draw the conclusion that all adult male homosexual men are paedophiles, whereas, statistically, heterosexuals are twice as likely to be child molesters than gays. In other words, your boy is twice as safe with a gay, than your daughter is with a heterosexual.

Review by: technological on April 06, 2013 :
I really doubted whether to give this 4 or 5 stars. I really enjoyed the book, it's well-written, and although the subject matter is downright evil at times it's an engaging read. I loved it. Still, I decided on 4 stars, only because the main character, Felix X, is literally unbelievably intelligent and mature, especially in the first chapters that describe his early years.
It gets more realistic as the book progresses though, and towards the end we see that even Felix has his doubts and uncertainties.

All in all : read this, it's good.

How can I describe this book??? I have to admit, it's not a simple or easy read, and absolutely not suited for people with weak nerves. BUT: It's amazing! The characters are fantasitc, the action,(although I had to stop reading several times to give my stomach some time to relax again) is amazing!
It reminded me a lot of Dennis Cooper, but it has a better ending than Cooper's books, or rather, a more fitting ending.
The writing is beautiful! Beautiful vocab, nice sentence structures - it made me forget that it was just words on paper, because I was completely lost in Felix's world!
