    Awesome!

    I have to say that this is one of the best books I have ever read. I laughed out loud several times at Ryan's antics. I could really identify with this character, and his problems with the opposite sex.

    Fly on the Wall

    Unlike so many novels in the 'hip gen-x' genre, 'Flyboy' actually refrains from pretention for the most part. The summary sounds gimmicky, but don't let that fool you; Munroe never surrenders his characters to their quirks. Ryan is a sympathetic and witty protagonist, and Cassandra is an utterly interesting figure. At one point, Cass remarks that she quit the music biz because she found herself becoming a cliche. Munroe manages to stay away from the plots and dialogue that so many young authors seem to simultaneously think up. Having read some utterly horrible novels in my search for the one that captures modern young adult life, ( one novel actually contained the unforgettable line 'If I had known then what I know now, I would've taken off as quick as my rusty Chevy would've carried me.' Needless to say I threw the book across the room in frustration), 'Flyboy' is a delightful find. Munroe uses irony and cliche to playfully accent his inventive look at modern life. The reader will undoubtedly laugh out loud at his quick dialogue, which actually captures his characters, a skill which many authors lack. The novel is hilarious, without taking away from its serious moments. A perfect balance of light-heartedness and misery. Fortunately Munroe can point out the humor in life's miseries, too. 'Flyboy' is utterly twisted, which is perhaps the greatest compliment one can give to a book.
