    This book essentially launched the memoir craze that has been going strong ever since. The story is pretty grim: teen-aged Wolff moves with his divorced mother from Florida to Utah to Washington State to escape her violent boyfriend. When she remarries, Wolff finds himself in a bitter battle of wills with his abusive stepfather, a contest in which the two prove to be more evenly matched than might have been supposed.

    Darwin8u says: "Beautiful, unsentimental memoir of youth"
    "Delinquency Glorified"

    What did you like best about This Boy's Life? What did you like least?

    Best enjoyed the ability of this character's mother to extricate herself from bad situations. Least enjoyed that she entered one after another and her son's continual display of delinquency and trouble.


    Did Oliver Wyman do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes.


    Did This Boy's Life inspire you to do anything?

    No.
