Iceman by Chris Lynch

Is Eric as cold as the ice he skates on? A fiery tour de force from the author of Inexcusable, a National Book Award finalist.

The other guys on Eric’s hockey team call him the Iceman, because he’s a heartless player, cold as ice. Only Eric knows the truth—he’s not cold, he’s on fire, burning with a need he just can’t explain. Least of all to his family—not to his dad, whose only joy in life is watching Eric smash other hockey players to a pulp. Or his mom, who starts every conversation with, “Your problem is...” Or even his brother, Duane, once a star athlete, now a star slacker.

Can Eric find a way to make them understand how he feels—before the fire inside consumes him completely?

I liked this book because it was more of a sport book. The whole time i was reading this book i was asking myself "why did the author write this book?" and i thought he wrote this book to show that if you love something dont give up just try it the way you think is right.

The book "Iceman" by Chris lynch is a great book! Chris lynch the author that has a wife and two kids (son and daughter) is a stay at home parent/writer. drurning his teens he did himself played sports.*= Eric a 14 year old boy who is a trubbled kid and hes pretty violent on the ice. his team mates call him the iceman ,but eric believes hes better than that. Lynch shows hockey as a violent game but also shows it being good. His father loves to watch Eric play and sort of lives vicariously plays through Eric's play. I play hockey myself and I could relate to this and this attracted my reading this novel. I highly recommend this book to a teen wanting to watch what life growing up as a boy that plays hockey is like. cam

This book Iceman is an amazing book. It is an action book in some chapters but then a gruesome book in other chapters. You don¿t have to be a sports fan to love this book. Chris Lynch writes Iceman in a way that all readers can understand the book. The reader can like all kinds of different types of books. It was a great sports book to read and respond about because it can really pull the reader into the book Eric is a 14 year old heartless hockey player who loves the game. He is a great athlete, works hard and is a bulldozer in his league. He is obsessed with dead bodies. There is a lot of hitting and it is an awesome sports book. If you are a sports fan or like sports we would recommend it to you. Chris Lynch wrote this book in a unique form because he put motions and emotions together.

The book iceman by Chris Lynch is about a troubled 14-year-old named Eric or ¿Iceman¿. His behavior on the ice is violent but he is productive in scoring. His inside feelings are confused due to his bad house life and low school attendance. This book could reflect many teens¿ lives, which makes it good to read. You don¿t need to be a sports fan to appreciate advice from the author. The sports aspect of this book is very good. Lynch shows hockey show as a violent game but also shows it being good. His father loves him to watch him play and sort of lives vicariously through Eric¿s play. I play hockey and I could relate to this and this attracted my reading also. Many parents live through their children¿s actions and if this is your parent it will help you. I highly recommend this book to a teen wanting to watch what life growing up as a boy is like.

I read the book called iceman by Chris lynch. This book is about a Kid named Eric who was thought to be a really good hockey player . That is what his father thought of him. His mother wasn¿t as Proud of him as his father was. She just talked to Eric and Always started with what is your problem. Eric responds with Her by just walking away from her. This book would inspire Anyone who is into sports books and stuff like that. I would Give this book a thumbs up or a 100 per. Rating. I really Enjoyed reading this book. I felt connected with Eric the main Character.
