The Paperboy - Pete Dexter. It was usually the Cubans. And I would think of the books Ward had studied, the formal and serious nature of his education, and try to imagine how it must have been, at the end of years of Latin and chemistry and physics and calculus, to see that it all led up three flights of stairs in a Miami ghetto. Having spent some time in college myself, I imagined it was a relief.

Hard story, but I sure do love the way it's written. I recommend it, but it does get tough (emotional parts with violence and serious sex), which I have no trouble with. It's a great book. Better than the movie, of course (although the movie was pretty intense!)

I liked some other Dexter books I've read, so I bought this novel. I wasn't disappointed. Dexter and I are about the same age and have lived through the same era, so I feel right at home reading his stuff. Younger readers might not get some of it.

I read "Paris Trout" (which I picked up wondering what the City of Light and fish have to do with one another) and was hooked. Pete Dexter writes books about people you don't really want to know -- racists, violent men, drunks, people who are depressed to the point of dragging you down with them -- but he gets his hooks in you on page one and never lets go. "Paperboy" is basically about failure and how close we are to it even when it seems that life is going OK -- something can come into our lives that takes it all apart. The story is magnificently told in prose so tight that you can almost hear typewriter keys clicking away (Pete Dexter's books don't read like they were produced on a word processor). Best of all, there are the many places in the book where the words "as if" or "like" appear. Nobody does descriptive comparisons better. This is a great book, just like the other Pete Dexter books -- you just can't go wrong with him.

I hadn't heard of the film until Nicole Kidman was nominated for an Oscar, and even after that, I didn't bother to see it until it popped up on my Netflix. Since, I've watched it a total of 4 times. It's an amazingly haunting movie. Because of how much I enjoyed the film, I decided to read the book. Much more detailed, and a little difficult to follow at times, but despite that, it was still just as haunting as the film.

Pete Dexter may very well be the best American author alive today. My brother gave me a copy of "God's Pocket" and I returned the favor with "Paris Trout". We were both hooked then. We didn't think anything could be better but then we read "The Paperboy" and until I get my hands on another Dexter book, "The Paperboy" stands as the best book I have ever read. I do not want to say anything to give away the story but there is no doubt in my mind that Hannibal Lecter would be very uncomfortable in the same room as Hillary Van Wetter, the main villainous protagonist in the Paperboy. You will carry images around in your head long after you finish this book...some you may not want to, but you will not regret having read it.

There were a few places where it kind of dragged, but overall, this was quite a story. Great characters, lots of twists and turns in the plot. The best new fiction that I have read in a very long time.

I thought the characters were lackluster and the story was slow developing.
A wonderful, engaging book....hard to put it down. Love the writing style and clarity. Excellent!
