Pressestimmen

As the title suggests, debut author Mesrobian takes aim at big topics, but what she's most interested in is the aftermath...By focusing on Evan, Mesrobian talks about hookup culture in a way that is character-based, not agenda-driven, and showcases a teenager who grows and changes without becoming unrecognizable. Publishers Weekly Utterly gripping Kirkus Reviews A great story, a brilliant debut and a read I highly recommend! Once Upon a Bookcase This is an amazing story, one that all older teens will benefit from reading VOYA Sex and Violence is never what it seems. It never goes where you expect it will. It is funny, scary, brutal, and tender. It is an honest meditation on masculinity. And it's all delivered through the eyes of a damaged genius of a boy, Evan Carter, who you hope so hard will be okay Geoff Herbach, author of Stupid Fast This is one hell of an impressive debut, filled with a pervasive undercurrent of fear, tension, and uncertainty you get from staring down into the deepest, darkest, coldest lake. Sex & Violence deserves shelf space alongside the classics of adolescent-themed fiction Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle A knockout blow of a debut. Powerful, funny, brutal, and true. Gayle Forman, New York Times Bestselling author of If I Stay A powerful book with lots of real strengths - notably the characters, who are well-rounded and interesting, and Evan's excellent narrative voice... a really strong debut The Bookbag

Kurzbeschreibung

Sex has always come without consequences for seventeen-year-old Evan.  Until he hooks up with the wrong girl and finds himself in the wrong  place at very much the wrong time. After an assault that leaves Evan  scarred inside and out, he and his father retreat to the family cabin in  rural Minnesota, which, ironically, turns out to be the one place where  Evan can't escape other people. Including himself. It may also offer him  his best shot at making sense of his life again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Important book that is amazing frank about sex. 7. Januar 2014
Von K. Sue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Wow I can't believe there are only 8 reviews of this book. Read it. Here's why.

Pretty impressive debut novel. It's about a teenage boy who hooks up with girls without engaging any emotions, because he has moved around non-stop since his mother died 4 or 5 years before the book begins. Until some super jealous classmates nearly beat him to death. Then he needs to rebuild himself into a person he can be comfortable with and face a lot of ugly sides of himself.

First of all, it's refreshing to read a book from a male perspective, even though it's written by a woman. Evan is one of the most honest, warts and all, characters I've read. This book isn't for everyone: it can be rude and crude at times, though from my perspective as a mother of teenage boys and a former high school teacher, that is what a teenage boy is. But it's impressive that you can see the kernel of the good person Evan strives to be. The story is ultimately hopeful, because despite the crap he's put people through and that he's been through, Evan manages to pull the pieces mostly together. The ending is open and though I'd like to know more about Evan and Jordan, I hope the author doesn't cave to publishing pressure and write a sequel.

This book is also refreshingly frank about sex. It doesn't sugar coat but it's not graphic or romanticized. There is a paragraph about hooking up and how Evan felt doing it, that made me sit down, because it was so well put. About how a condom was his "latex disguise", allowing him to feel responsible, not slutty and that he was taking care of things. It's such a condemnation of hook up culture and how it ultimately demeans but without knocking you on the head about it. Evan does slowly learn to value a person and fall in love and postpone physical pleasure.

The one criticism I have is that the psychological therapy speak is pretty obvious. Parts of the book occasionally feel like someone took some increasingly advanced psychology courses and poured what they learned into the book.

I think this is an important book to be shared with older teens to open a discussion. Many of the themes are themes that should be discussed: what's your motivation, what are you looking for in your relationships, what is hook up culture and how does it affect teens or people in general, how do you deal with fear. That being said, if you object to rough language and some crudeness, this isn't for you.
4.0 von 5 Sternen I liked this book but I did not love it as ... 4. November 2015
Von M. S. Hatch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Sex & Violence is the story of Evan, a high school junior who has never had a problem hooking up with the opposite sex - until the day he does. After an assault leaves him wounded in both body and soul, his hitherto absent father brings him 'home' to a family cottage on a lake in Minnesota to heal. The question is, can he?

I liked this book but I did not love it as I hoped *sigh*

What I did like about the book: solid writing, absolutely no editing issues or anything of that nature. Interesting characters who all had their own distinct personalities, especially Evan who begins the story as a rather jaded 17 year old. For him, it's all about finding a girl who will say yes. After the attack, jaded Evan becomes scared to death Evan and his reactions felt very true to life to me. I especially liked the letters he wrote, which felt like the most honest part of the story.

What I didn't like: Although I sympathized with Evan, I was not entirely compelled by the question of whether or not he would make it through this ordeal. The stakes didn't feel high enough, even though technically they were. Either Evan changes and is a stronger better person or...not.

What I wanted to know more about: the trial and Colleen. I won't say more about either of those (spoiler) but I really wanted more on those two fronts. By the same token, it wasn't necessary for me, the reader, to know more about the trial or Colleen so I am not picking fault on that count.

Bottom line: you would probably like this book if you like YA with flawed characters.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Graphic, But Worthwhile 4. Juni 2014
Von Miss Riki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Addressing the aftermath of assault and the consequences of casual sex, this novel doesn’t shy away from the tough topics and reality of teen life. There’s a lot of moral ambiguity in this story, and it should probably come with a trigger warning for some of the graphic content. It’s definitely a young adult novel for a more mature audience, but it is a worthwhile and even valuable narrative on PTSD.

What stands out the most for me in this book is the spot-on narrative voice of Evan. The male POV is extremely well done and I would have never guessed that I was reading a novel written by a female author. He’s an unreliable narrator at best, but his charm lies in his unabashed honesty and fragile temper. Despite his somewhat broken moral compass, as a reader I wanted him to find his way and my heart broke for his traumatic experience. There were definitely times that I wanted to smack him upside the head and tell him to get it together, but ultimately the book is about him finding his way, and there will be obvious struggles in that.

Something this book does really well is showing all of the varying experiences of teen sex. There’s a wide continuum, and the experiences of the teens in this book lie all along that line, from the mundane first time to the trauma of sexual assault. The novel does a good job of opening up a discussion about emotional and physical boundaries and the way that sex can complicate matters. Although it is subject material that is definitely aimed at a more mature young adult reader, it’s valuable.

I’m a big fan of young adult literature that isn’t afraid to uncover the truths about being a teen, and I feel like Sex & Violence was a daring attempt at realism. Be forewarned that it is graphic and at times violent, but still a worthwhile read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spot-on *real* 29. Oktober 2013
Von Melanie Cannon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
There are so many things to love about this book: the authentic ring of the narrator's voice, the realistic portrayal of the interaction between the characters, and the author's commitment to creating a narrator who is both flawed and likable, stuck and growing. (You know, like actual people.)

But what I really want to talk about is how solidly Evan's story nails the process of recovering from trauma. There is no magic wand. He doesn't wake up one day "fixed." His recovery process is just like what happens in life. It moves in fits and starts. There are steps forward and stumbles backward. He achieves bits of growth then promptly acts like he hasn't learned a thing.

It also happens in relationship with other people, the other rich and real characters that inhabit Evan's world.

I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys vivid storytelling about complex characters.
5.0 von 5 Sternen deserves to be widely read! 23. März 2014

Evan is a teen with a very messy life. Life has dealt him a difficult hand and he's made it more difficult by his reactions. But he's trying to figure it all out. Despite the title, this book is not really about sex and violence. It's as much about love and relationships and healing and recovery. I guess "sex and violence" is a good "boy" title, but girls will love this too if they get far enough into it to see that Evan is *not* just a sex-addicted player.

The only thing that bothered me just a bit about this book is that the author pulls a bait and switch. It hooks in readers who want, well, sex and violence, and then gives them sweetness. I mean, by the end of the book this notorious player is cooking Thanksgiving dinner for his dad and uncle and dating a girl who has declared sex off-limits and makes out with him at the pace of mating sea turtles. I am quite sure the bait and switch is intentional but I don't quite believe the radical change in Evan's character, which is a sign, I guess, that the book could be a little better. Then again, it's pretty damn great.

All I have to add is one random detail: do not walk away from this book down on organic bananas. The use of pesticides on bananas is causing Caimans to look anorexic and hurting other aspects of the ecosystem. Besides organic bananas taste better!
