it was amazing
bookshelves: gritty-fiction
Read in April, 2009

I would highly suggest this book to anyone who digs gritty fiction that doesn't shy away from the darker side of life, or for anyone who has a remote interest in surfing as a zen-like subculture. Kem Nunn is the quintessential voice for the blending of the two. This book is essentially a suspense/mystery with a young bumpkin-type protagonist who moves to Huntington Beach to find his missing sister. All of the life changes he experiences via the surf culture give this story a lot of sustenance, but the sheer originality of characters like Hound Adams, (the coolest name for a bad guy EVER), also provide some interesting fodder for the reader.
