This book was interesting...
It's about this boy, about 14, who didn't grow up in the best neighborhood. He lived in the poor, rough section. He looked up to gang leaders, and liked gangs.


It was okay. I read this book awhile ago, and I didn't think that it was bad, nor was it great. I think that it would be a good read for when you don't really have anything else to read. It makes you think a little, also...

I dont Rumble Fish had a point to it cause I couldn't find one. In my opnion the book was pointless. I didn't even know there was a plot to it until the end and then I realized but I can't tell you what it is cause you have to read.

Readers who fell in love with S.E. Hinton's "The Outsiders" or "Tex" shouldn't go into "Rumble Fish" expecting the same time of lovable characters and uplifting realizations. This is the story of street punk Rusty-James, who is devoid of Hinton's main chracters' usual charm-- he's little more than a hoodlum. Rusty-James loves and admires his older brother, the Motorcycle Boy, a strange and distant character with many talents who doesn't seem to fit in in life. Rusty-James's wish to be just like his older brother seems fruitless, until the events of a few nights changes their relationship forever.

This is for older teen readers, as it's heavy on symbolism and devoid of the usual details and relationships that makes Hinton's other books so well-loved in the YA crowd.
