    One thought on “Son of a Trickster”

    1. So, this Canadian YA novel that weaves Native American culture and magical realism was recommended by a fellow educator I had purchased it along with other books for my classroom library It has been picked up time and time again by my students, but they have shared that they just haven t been able to get through it So, I decided I needed to find out for myself I suspect that part of what might be uncomfortable for them is that the story for some may hit too close to home Jared, our teenage prota [...]

    2. The world is hard You have to be harder.Author Eden Robinson calls Son of a Trickster a cognitive screwball gothic with working class people , and that s too precisely perfect a description for me not to just quote her As the coming of age story of a sixteen year old Native kid, Jared Martin, this book explores all the familiar anxieties faced by high school kids everywhere social acceptance, family expectations, drug and sexual experimentation , layers on the less familiar anxieties particular [...]

    3. Son of a Trickster just came out after too many years without any new fiction from Eden Robinson This novel is SO worth the wait It s about Jared, a sixteen year old burnout who drinks too much and smokes too much pot and lives on the rez with his mom, who he can t trust to not bail on him and the bills or to not beat up guys who admittedly deserve it But Jared is not a stereotype and not what an outsider would think he s also an incredibly compassionate person, to the point that others take adv [...]

    4. 3.5 to 4ish stars.I ve never read anything by Eden Robinson before, so this was a pleasant surprise Jared, the main character, lives with his mother His parents have split up, and his father, a recovering drug addict, has a new family Jared s mother is scary, and has hurt various boyfriends for threatening or hurting Jared Jared s mother also has anger issues.Jared is sixteen years old and a good guy Jared is struggling in school, and spends much of his time drinking or doing drugs, making marij [...]

    5. To call this novel a coming of age story is a bit of a misdirection It has elements of that but there is a lot going on I m still a bit confused by this novel, honestly Jared is a first nations kid in Canada who sometimes lives on the reservation He has very little parenting, his grandmother claims he is not completely human and has some trickster in him, and he starts experiencing a realm of the supernatural But then again, he s also someone who sells pot cookies and drinks than he should, so [...]

    6. This novel rings brilliant changes on topics such as vomit The stew like puddle stank beside the mattress and it does a wonderful job of representing characters whose main way of spending their lives is to grow stupefied together on booze or drugs or occasionally sex All the characters speak in a witty gritty way that I admire, but it almost felt as if Robinson is so good at all of the above especially good at drunken dialog, for instance, or of writing characters who make stupid choices, or wri [...]

    7. Reminds me ofThe Animators in the way it starts out as one thing and then takes an unexpected turn and becomes something completely different Not an all time favorite book or anything, but still an easy five stars for the character of Jared plus humor plus First Peoples mythology.

    8. Son of a Trickster came across my Twitter feed one day and I knew I had to read it I m trying to read books by Indigenous authors, and this one looked really good Sure enough, it s a smart and savvy novel that delivers great characters and dialogue, never compromising on its message while still remaining entertaining Thanks to NetGalley and Knopf for providing me with an ARC.Jared, like Eden Robinson herself, is Haisla and Heiltsuk and lives in Kitimat, British Columbia When we first meet him, [...]

    9. useless noodling skip this paragraph if you want to get to the review there is a chinese wall between american readers and canadian literature the only titan strong enough to have made a breach but, see, it s her breach, no one but she can cross over, just like in kafka s parable is Margaret Atwood even nobel prize winner Alice Munro is not a household name among american readers Miriam Toews i haven t dug into numbers, but this is what it seems to me is popular in italy than she is south of th [...]

    10. Definite contender for Giller 2017 yes, I know Giller 2016 hasn t even been announced yet More thoughtful review to come.

    11. Last year, I read only one magical realism novel and I lamented the fact that I hadn t found This year, I m starting with one in the hopes that it will bring my way Wishful thinking, maybe, but it certainly can t hurt.First, much thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the chance to read this fantastic book pre publication Son of a Trickster will be published on February 7th, and it certainly fits the bleak tone of the month Jared, the main character, is a teen with a damn hard lif [...]

    12. 5 stars for this enchanting Bildungsroman I couldn t put it down and had to immediately reread it as soon as I finished Son of a Trickster is both realistic and gritty, beautiful and magical, terrifying and funny, endearing and tragic all at the same time 16 year old Jared, aka Cookie Dude amongst his peers, has a snarky mouth that often gets him into trouble His maternal grandmother hates him, believing he is not human, rather a Wee git , a raven trickster from Pacific Northwest First Nation s [...]

    13. ayearofbooksblog 2017 04 I have to admit that I almost did not buy a copy of Son of a Trickster I am ok with swearing and graphic language but really struggle with that c word which is sprinkled throughout the first chapter During the author event at Laurier University, I cringed hearing that word during the reading The author shared that she herself does not swear much but her characters do Lucky for me, I kept an open mind and got carried away with the infections laughter and engaging storytel [...]

    14. Robinson tells a great story but for me, this book was all about the characters Jared is a warm, broken, oddly mature and caring young man who brought out my mothering instincts there were several moments when I wanted to jump in the book and simply make him a grilled cheese sandwich and a mug of tea His mother and her actions may be frustrating but I could feel the love for her son I found likable traits in all the characters, even those characters that I didn t like at the beginning of the boo [...]

    15. My thanks to Giveaways and the publishers for giving me a copy of this enjoyable book I ve never read this author before but will look for her books in future I liked her writing style, the story was engaging, and the characters were fabulous.

    16. This is a coming of age novel about 16 year old Jared growing up in British Columbia Jared s isn t a normal life for a 16 year old As he struggles to complete his exam year at school his family crumble around him through drug abuse, alcoholism and crime His friends at school offer some release, but really his peer group has similar problems It is therefore a depressing read, reminds me of a YA book I read earlier this year, Bonnie Sue Hitchcock s The Smell Of Other People s Houses Hitchcock s bo [...]

    17. I loved this book it was emotionally dense, hilarious, smart, tender just really good And different parts of it keep coming back to me, in ways that show how well crafted it is.

    18. 2.5 stars, if we could there were parts of this story i really enjoyed, but there were other parts i found a bit clunky robinson is an interesting storyteller, and she packs a lot into her books but i find myself wondering if she tries to do too much her characters and settings are very vivid, and the magical realism is interesting though MR does tend to be something i struggle with as a reader, generally.

    19. Son of a Trickster really surprised me I ve never read anything by Eden Robinson before so I went into this with no expectations and I really loved it The writing style was different to what I m used to so it took a while to get into it but other than that I loved absolutely everything about this book I loved the characters, the setting and the whole magic realism aspect Although I must admit it took me a while to realise what was happening.

    20. What struck me most about this book was how unlike it was anything else I could think of And that s a good thing.

    21. Let me just start off by saying that I will never look at Otters the same way again This was a pretty great read It follows the story of Jared and his day to day struggles with his family and friends His parents are divorced, and the very mention of his father sends his mother into a violent frenzy not that she has done any better, each relationship seeming to end in violence To say Jared s mother has a violent temper would be a gross understatement Jared seems to be very conscious about his mot [...]

    22. I really loved the whole feel and structure and mood of Eden Robinson s Son of a Trickster The writing is sassy and sharp and infused with a whip smart humour The dialogue and the often crude language is spot on But it s the portrait of a teenage boy doing the best he can despite the circumstances which makes it such a stunner of a read.To read my review in full, please visit my blog.

    23. ConsiderIng that I did not appreciate Monkey Beach, I really was not prepared to be so blown away by this book ERs skill in weaving together the glowing threads of this archetypal story kept me up late and has me hotly anticipating the next installment.Our universe is a membrane,a hologram, a soap bubble We don t go through the looking glass We are the looking glass p221The divine in all of usmembers being light p264

    24. I m generally not a fan of magical realism, but Eden Robinson makes it work here in the best kind of way This was my first read from the 2017 Giller Prize short list and I thoroughly enjoyed it I really liked the protagonist, Jared, and his development throughout I also noticed threads of similarity between this novel and The Goldfinch, another book I really liked that also happened to win a Pulitzer

    25. Brief thoughts originally published 20 February 2017 at Falling Letters I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.My thoughts on Son of a Trickster mostly focus on the perils of basing expectations for one book on another book.Two things drew me to this book Eden Robinson Haisla First Nation author magical realism I previously read and enjoyed Robinson sMonkey Beach Son of a Trickster stars teenage boy Jared, who differs greatly from Monkey Beach s adul [...]

    26. You re going to get a quarter of the way through this book and be like Soooo And halfway through you ll be like Stilllllll waitingBut it s worth it It s all worth it Pay attention Stick it out Trust the journey This review is awfully hippy for me, but you ll understand that too, when you re finished.

    27. Please read all of my reviews at ultraviolentlit I have read and loved all of Robinson s previous novels, and I couldn t be happier to learn that Son of a Trickster is the first in a planned trilogy about Native teen Jared and his exploration of both the real and the spirit worlds in Kitimat, B.C This novel is a very unique combination of coming of age family drama, Indigenous beliefs and Northwest Coast flavoured magic realism We first meet Jared as a sweet young child who is incredibly loved b [...]

    28. Eden Robinson is a literary goddess Son of a Trickster, her latest, is a fantastic novel and a worthy successor to the absolutely stunning Monkey Beach Go read both books Now Seriously They are beautiful and devastating and brilliant But you probably want to know why Son of a Trickster is awesome, don t you It s a story about an Indigenous kid growing up in Northern BC Much like Monkey Beach, the narrative bounces around We get a little bit from when Jared was wee, and bits and pieces as he grow [...]
