    Hard styles of the Damned

    Okay, first off, if I had never read novels of high school life from a couple of other very good writers, I probably would have enjoyed Hairstyles more, maybe. For the positive, this book has a good story, great characters and sense of reality that is lacking in many a coming of age novel. However to get there, one must plow through many a useless word. Getting to the point of the story and staying there is not a strong point of Joe Meno. He obviously loves tangents and often I wanted to throw the book down in frustration and say, that's it, I'm done reading. To finish the book finally become more of a challange to myself as something I must do than an actually caring of the protagonist and the story. A weaker reader would give up in the first 50 pages. I would love to ask Mr. Meno if he has ever heard of this little thing called editing. Further, I would advise him of the KISS method. Keep it simple, stupid. For one would teaches he should know better. Still, the story is entertaining enough I suppose and despite all the hip deep mud one must wade through to reach the conclusion it isn't half bad, though I did find the ending sub-par. That being said, if you are looking for really good stories about teenage life, I strongly suggest either Blake Nelson's, GIRL, or Michael Hornberg's, DOWNERS GROVE. Both of these novels are well written, have good plots and great characters and whisk the reader away with the speed of a stylish roadster. On the other hand, Hairstyles seems more like a slow ride in the mud on your uncle's tractor in comparison.

    It's a pretty okay book

    This book is good if you're really into the punk-scene. It's about a bunch of social mistfits in a little town who just don't fit in. It really does capture the essence of high school and teen love though...which is what makes it a book I would recommend.
