Curiously enough, this is the second book Adam Rapp has written about a trio of incredibly dysfunctional, drugged-out young people who have kidnapped a small child. (The first was 33 Snowfish .) Both books are incredibly bleak with semi-hopeful endings. Of the two, however, I preferred the first. I couldn't decide which one I pitied the most, but I had a very hard time connecting to any of the characters in The Children and the Wolves. Perhaps if the book had been longer and I got to know them, it would have been different -- but then again, 33 Snowfish isn't that much longer. I would still recommend this book but it's not one of Adam Rapp's best.
