This is absolutely one of the best audiobooks I've ever heard. As a native New Yorker it read like a love letter that hurts to write. And Danny Hoch, as always, killed it!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
The voice actor narrating this largely stream-of-conscious book is out of this world. Entertaining, convincing, likable.
What other book might you compare Rage Is Back to and why?
Rule of the Bone by Russell Banks. Can't help but love the young men in both of these stories.
Which character – as performed by Danny Hoch – was your favorite?
Dondi, the narrator.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The author has an intimidating command of the written and spoken word, and the words fly at the reader/listened fast and furious, a masterfully crafted tornado of Shakespeare, graffiti lingo, philosophy, drug references, urban lore, lush description of epic hallucinogenic trips, magic realism, and the verbal markers of class, race, power, authority, authenticity. . . . I was overwhelmed by the relentless passion of the language at times. There is never a let up.
Any additional comments?
The ending was a bit pat in some ways, but then other story arcs seemed to disappear completely.
