I LOVED THIS BOOK. IT WAS WRITTEN EXCELENTLY!! I MIGHT HAVE TO READ IT AGAIN!!!
Streets of Danger by Bryan Alexander is a realistic story about a 16 years old boy living on the streets of a typical city in mid to late '30s. The author experienced, or witnessed, similar events when he was 16 and some of the descriptions are based on these events. The description is clear and vivid and the humor is well placed to avoid letting the reader get too serious about the story. Although the story is realistic, it is a concentration of adventures in the life of the characters, filled with interesting and exciting adventures, occasionally embellished to enhance the effects that can and did occurred during the depression of the '30s. The adventures flow smoothly and the reader should not have any difficulty in following the characters as they stumble through the dangerous streets trying to survive. The dialect is that of the location and time, and is also realistic. Although, to preserve the integrity of the story, the language can be rough at time, there are no significant profanities and should not be objectionable to most readers. This is a very funny story with some very dramatic situations, which will make you want to continue to the end in one sitting.
