Overview

Hawkes Harbor by S. E. Hinton

The legendary author of The Outsiders returns with her first new novel in more than fifteen years!

An orphan and a bastard, Jamie grew up tough enough to handle almost anything. He survived foreign prisons, smugglers, pirates, gunrunners, and shark attacks. But what he finds in the quote town of Hawkes Harbor, Delaware, was enough to drive him almost insane—and change his life forever.

This is a book of enjoyment. This book will definitely get your attention in the first couple of pages. I would recommend this book to adult audiences or mature teenagers. This book is definitely one that you will not want to put down until you finish it completely. I wanted to write this review so that you can see a different point of view of this book. Jamie is a 24 year old man with one troubling past. He gets in trouble in many ways, and escapes many of the punishments. He and is best bud Kell roam the world and commit many crimes along the way. This book kept me interested all the way. This is a book that has one lesson in it: Don't Trust Anyone. I have learned that before and hold strong to this. In this book, Jamie did trust one person and is forced to trust another. You will learn in many different ways to trust no one. Also, you must make sure that you keep your true friends. In conclusion, this book is mainly for enjoyment. I would definitely reread. This book will keep you interested with action, adventure, and a little mystery. I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I did.

Hearing Lilywolf's words, she stopped in her tracks. She had been planning for days now to return; missing her family and friends, and wanting to talk to Mouse. She had overheard the cat was pregnant a few days ago, and she wanted to know if it was true. Frozen, she stood before the entrance of camp. She couldn't enter camp. She felt twice as guilty now...She couldn't face HorseClan feeling guilty and- just horrible...A tear began to form in one of her eyes, for she had planning this for days and now she was suddenly backing out. She took a stepped back, before turning and jolting bak onto the prairie. Tears streamed down her cheeks now, but she made no noise as she raced across the prairie, out of sight. (Not gonna find her anywhere. She's disappeared again...)

She hears her name and looks over, then dashes after her patrol.

"I..don't know. But there's just this whisper that something big and awful is going to happen. It going to affect the clans. And some cats we know are going to start it." He padded away, sorting everything in his mind.

Cloudripple didn't budge. "I haven't seen you eat or drink /anything/ since Velvetstar. I know you're upset, but you can't starve yourself. The clan needs you." She spoke in a quiet but firm voice, so that only Goldenstar could hear her.

Crystalpaw refused to emerge from the apprentices' den, feeling worthless. She was unable to catch anything on her first hunting patrol, putting her to a bad start already. Having cried the night away last night, she simply curled up silently in there, deciding to sleep awhile. Not long later, if you poked your head in, Crystalpaw could be seen sleeping near the back of the den, unconscious and sleeping heavily. -Crystalpaw &star Lilywolf is deputy. Not surprisig to anyone I bet. Also I shalln't be on October 6th through October 10th. Field trip. And I got an hour and a half (don't ask) of sleep last night so bbt! Also, please read my story at "dsa" result one. I took the time to make it nice and would love some good feedback. G'nite for not though.

timeline is a little confusing and some of the characters not fully realized, but maybe Hinton assumes the reader is familiar with her source material (Dark Shadows) and needn't bother. fun, entertaining adventure story I couldn't put down.

I started reading the book with one thing in mind: Outsiders. Being the only S.E. Hinton book I'd read (or heard of!) before finding Hawkes Harbor, I did have a limited, preconceived notion as to how Hawkes Harbor would be written and what it would feel like. But, I assure you, it's quite different. It is as everyone else has said: it's about a boy, Jamie, who travels the world with his older friend, Kell, until his advantures place him in the wrong place and his whole world changes. Hawkes Harbor is 251 pages long; it was on page 107 that everything changed for me. While the first 106 pages were entertaining enough, filled with "foreign prisons, smugglers, pirates, gunrunners, shark attacks," and more, the book was pretty easy going. Sometimes slow. I've put it down a few times to read other books, and still found it easy to pick back up and start where I left off. But, I'll tell you, what happens on page 107 threw me through a loop; suddenly the book has become more interesting. I don't know about anyone else who has read it, but I wasn't expecting what happened at all. Though I'd found the book sometimes slow-moving, I can't put it down; I will finish it! It's a hard book for me to suggest to anyone specific because of the way it straddles genres. But I suppose in a time where there's a market for the fusing of Jane Eyre and zombies and whatnot, it can appeal to anybody.

It was very interesting learning about Jamie's life and adventures. At Terrace View I learned so much about him and his life. I didn't expect him to have such an exciting life from his childhood, but that made the book even better. The characters were static and dynamic and Kell was always one of my favorites. I liked the book until the climax. I especially liked him while he was in Hawkes Harbor before het Grenville. Kell and Jamie had great adventures together, and I was sad when they came to an end. I didn't like the Hawkes family from the beginning, especially Grenville. Jamie was a tough kid who grew into an even tougher adult, and Grenville completely changed him. I felt bad when they talked about Eastern State and all the stories that came from there, but Dr. McDevitt was very kind and companionate. Jamie seemed to really open up and become closer to Grenville while they were on the cruise. Jamie seemed like he was his old self again. I wanted Jamie to leave Terrace View, but I knew he wasn't ready. Jamie's memories were very vivid all through the book. I thought it was very interesting and fun to read. I didn't like the ending and the surprise twist though. All of the characters were very different in some ways, but alike in others. I didn't like the horrible demise of the characters that didn't live until the end. Overall it was a very descriptive book that made me feel like I was in his stories; I also felt pure horror when he went to Hawkes Harbor. I will read more S.E. Hinton books in the future. The ending was a big surprise. I would read this book again, but I would already know the surprise so it wouldn't be as good. I wish Jamie would have never gotten shot, and Katie would have remembered what happened between them. I was very sad with what happened in the end, but I almost cried. Grenville had changed so much over the course of the book, and I'm glad it was for the better. I felt much better knowing Kell was with him in the end.

After being a fan of the Twilight Series, and loving the romantic side of vampires, it was really interesting to see a darker side of what has become so popluar now. Jamie's adventures were fun to read about, but his time with Grenville, was nothing short of terror. I was so glad that he overcame what he went through with his years in mental institutions and the fear and suffering had to go through while being devoted to a vampire. The ending was a touching way to tie up the storyline. A must read for anyone who loves a story of personal triumph and good overcoming evil.
