    1. Some of the writing is over the top and out of control. And the situations, although perhaps possible, are difficult to believe. For example, the scene in which Shane is outside the operating room watching his brother die on the operating table with blood and guts everywhere. Too much, man. The language aspires to verisimilitude with its "skud, "skrunk," "MG" and so on. But all this rings false. We have nary a profanity that we all know so well. Too bad. The book means well.


    2. Good for a once over.I picked up the novel up because it had four different characters as narrators, and that always interests me. I find the author did a good job of it, and the pace of the book wasn't slow or disjointed. So while reading it was interesting to see how the four boys influenced each other throughout the story. Plot wise, I like how they go through each a different kind of transformation because they have unique obstacles, and Andy's character is the most interesting to me. Unfort [...]


    3. The book is well-written but very intense. The story is told from the perspective of four teenage boys in high school and they are all going through some very tough times and have to make tough choices. This is definitely a coming of age book rather than a loss of innocence theme since they have all struggled with serious issues prior to the period of the story. I am glad I read it but would not read it again because it is very depressing. The author tried to make it very realistic, and I apprec [...]


    4. Honestly, I find bad reviews without justification to be frustrating. So I'm writing words but, in truth, I hated absolutely everything about it. The characters felt incredibly one dimensional (especially Brad). And the last 30 pages actually made me nauseous. I should note that I read this book while helping a friend select reading material for her home schooled kids, so perhaps the audience I had in my mind made my reading a bit biased. But the prose were lame, the multiple perspectives is alw [...]


    5. skud is a book told from four different views from four adolesent boys is a great insight into the difficulties of life as they know it. it shows that even though people may act like they know exactly what they will do for the rest of their lives, things change. people say something that pushes them over the edge, they see their career for what it really is, or, sometimes they just get what is coming to them.


    6. This book was an okay read for YA. It's a good premise, but the story needed a little more development. It's a good read for struggling readers. I'll be interested to see what my students think of the ending.


    7. Follows four high school seniors--popular, athletic Tommy, who hopes to be a pilot, his friend Brad, a bodybuilder, aspiring actor Andy, and Shane, a violent delinquent--as they try to figure out what it means to be a man.



    8. Not bad for a book that deals almost exclusively with high school boys with anger management issues. A subtly incisive examination of masculinity that I'm happy to include in my classroom library.
