"Hartnett's prose is beautiful, filled with piercing, original imagery that, like David Almond's, explores the savage, animal instincts in humans, especially children. The climax is shocking." (Booklist)
"As sharp and tender as a suspenseful novel can be." (Robert Drewe)

Keep your children close at hand
Would you listen to Of A Boy again? Why?
Not likely. While the story read much like a made for television
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Written with a detail for realism, the outcome was unsatisfactory. I needed someone in this story to root for.
What about Humphrey Bower’s performance did you like?
The inflection; the tension in the voice. This was well-done.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The tenuous nature of childhood attachments to things, and to people.
Any additional comments?
I was depressed for a week.
