From the first page, Saint Iggy didn't have my full attention. I didn't even finish the book, I only read a few chapter in, because I didn't like it. Maybe I just didn't give it a chance, or maybe it really did get better halfway through, but I didn't like this book. I didn't like the character and what he was getting into. There was profanity and so much drug use, that I didn't see anything positive in the novel. Not recommended.

"And I think, Me, too, because here I am on a new path again and sooner or later, one of these paths ought to lead me someplace I actually want to go." (149)

Iggy Corso hasn't exactly lived a great life; born a crack baby with his father stoned, his mother vanished, and not to mention now freshly kicked out of high school. But Iggy doesn't drown himself in that, he has a solution and a plan, to make something of himself. And so he sets out into the world of druggies, dealers, and never-endless gray parties; of riches and denial, of the endless paths of life. Trying to make of it, what he can.

Iggy reminds me much of Holden, from Catcher in the Rye, but less hypocritical and more fleeting. He yearns to save the world, to contribute one good thing to make his life seem more than just meaningless and earn himself a place in something. KL writes well the emotions of a boy searching for a path to follow and the cold hard truth of the world. Your heart aches for Iggy as you hope, yet know how the story in the end will turn. But even as the final pages fall you realize that in the end Iggy is Iggy.

Iggy's personality flies through the pages as a boy magically comes to life in front of you. So detailed and realistic, its truely uncanning. A masterpiece and a book well recommended to show the teenagers of this day and age a life unlike many and boy that's simply just extra-ordinary.

Iggy Corso hasn't exactly had the best life one can hope for. He's been kicked out of high school and its not like his stoned father or


It is a sad complacent story about a boy born into a world that crushes him in his wake. It is well written and emotion though Iggy reminds me of a Holden less hypocritical and more fleeting than in Catcher in the Rye

SAINT IGGY RULES!!! First of all, I relate to Iggy, making it easier to understand this book which is why I am apparently the first person to review it on this website. That totally bites. Anyway, this book is a realistic fiction packed with a kind of sadness that only people that relate to Iggy, like me, can understand. It starts out with Iggy getting semi-kicked out of school and then making a plan to get back in to school. He then goes over to his friend Mo's place, which smells like pot because duh, Mo is a pothead. They end up going over to a dealer so Mo can get the "stuff" and then head home, They eventually go over to Mo's mom's place and end up staying there for a while. Mo's mom helps Iggy make a plan and tells him to go to church. Mo can't pay the price for the drug samples that he got and Iggy and him end up making a deal with Frankie, the drug dealer, and end up in an alley. The rest I will leave to you to read. ENJOY!

This boook is mostly for teens (even though I read it, and I am 10). The ending is kind of dissapointing, but at the same time satisfying. i meant what I said, READ AND ENJOY THE DANG BOOK!! please.
