    Aha Stumbling around my local Borders as I was, looking for something to while away the dead spots during a family Christmas my eye was drawn to a stark modern cover design with blurb that pressed all the right buttons Stunning debut it said 10 points he s in danger of doing for his generation what I did for mine Hunter S Thompson it said 15 points the bright lights of acid and the ferocity of speed it said another 15 points Twelve is a novel that completely satisfied my criteria for random book selection You can see why I took it home.Set in New York over the 5 days leading up to New Year it s the story of a bunch of late teens looking for a party It spans the classes from the ghettos of the Bronx to the brownstones on Park Avenue, telling the story of a group of kids all loosely connected by the same desire for a big New Year s bash and all destined to end up at the same house for the big night.It uses the neat narrative trick of telling the story from many character s point of view White Mike is our main protagonist a small time dealer in weed and coke who never touches his own supply Other characters include the rich geek who s brother used to be a coke addict, the unencumbered prom queen and the drug addled mess of self consciousness that is the party girl Each one tells their story over the 5 days, and each one gives us an insight into their own peculiar brand of teenage angst.You can tell from that precis that this is going to be a difficult novel to carry off there s not an awful lot to work with, let alone a lot of originality, and unfortunately Twelve doesn t manage it This is another one of those desperate to shock novels Apparently we should be shocked that kids in their late teens smoke weed We should be shocked that they take cocaine We should be shocked that drugs make up so much of their lives, and that they overstep boundaries because of them.So, this is mostly regurgitated pap He s trying to be make an East Coast version of Brett Easton Ellis Less Than Zero and he really doesn t succeed On top of that it s made all the disappointing by the overt privilege and ego of the author Never have I read a book before where the author so desperately wants us to think that the book is autobiographical because he s made the character he wants us to think is him so cool.Add to that a set of completely vacuous two dimensional characters, a plot so weak it couldn t snap spaghetti, a fictional device clumsily created and then never actually used and a denoument that smacks of the last role playing game the author played and what you get left with is a completely disatisfying 2 hour read.Shame on the publishers for publishing it, shame on the parents for funding the little twat through school and letting him live out his desire to be a novelist I m sure he got a good education Hopefully he learned a trade He ll need it.

    I don t understand why this book was such a sensation when it came out Okay, I sorta do the author was only seventeen, his father is a rich publishing figure and Hunter S Thompson wrote a blurb However, none of that makes this a good book In fact, I couldn t stand it.I don t think Nick McDonell is without talent, but this book definitely betrayed his age It was like he was trying to prove how grown up he was by writing about all the sex and drugs And I thought the ending is horrible It was like McDonell just got tired of writing about these people and decided to blow them away in a smashing Rambo style shooting much like the video games adolescent males enjoy so much.In conclusion blech Try again in about ten years, Mr McDonell And I m not just saying that cause I m jealous of your youthful success, either Although I am, when it comes to that.

    Skip the nearly straight to DVD movie with A list actors and read this book I m stunned by all the negative reviews White Mike takes a year off from his over privileged life to defer an ivy league education and work Needing only a supplier, a beeper and his never ending prep school connections, he walks the streets of New York to collect cash in exchange for drugs Near the beginning, another dealer, much like Mike, dies in a violent and bloody deal gone bad in Harlem and the wrong guy is arrested That deal s connection to White Mike eventually surfaces, but it s Jessica the teen slut s first trip on Twelve, a drug she describes as a combination of ecstacy and cocaine that lends its name for the title Taking place in the two weeks of a high school s Christmas break, you will feel White Mike s self imposed isolation, even as he walks among the crowds in New York during the Christmas.I was surprised to find that this dark book about a teen drug dealer was well written, regardless of how it was published I loved its structure, moving from vignette to vignette and leaving a loose end only to pick it up later.

    The author hadn t even started college when he wrote and published this book The book was published with ease because his parents are rich New York socialites in the publishing business At the time when I read this I had great dreams of becoming a young, successful writer, so I wanted to see if the kid had talent or if he just had money and access I did like reading the book, but I m not sure how much talent was involved I don t believe he s written anything since I mean, maybe he is talented, as so many unpublished writers are, but I have no doubt that this story would still be saved on someone s computer had his parents not been in the field.

    I didn t hate this book It kept me hooked till the end and the writing style was good at least for one character But there were so many issues with this book.I don t know much about what American high schools were like back in early 2000s but this author made it seem as if all rich kids cared about was money, drugs, parties, alcohol, and sex.We are told the story of an entire week from the perspective of many characters, yet, with the exception of the main character, every character felt like the previous one with the only difference being their situation That was the only thing that kept them from blending into one another.All these rich kids cared about was when they are going to get their next drug and when they can have sex with someone The author tries to portray them as just lonely rich kids who have no love or attention from their parents who are too busy making money, but it completely fails at that These characters don t even feel like human beings.The main character whose name is Mike is the beloved drug dealer his work name is White Mike which is completely stupid and doesn t protect your identity especially when you work with people who know you He is taking a year gap before Uni and spends his time selling drugs How he managed to hide from the police, I don t know He s pretty open about it and doesn t seem to think anyone would rat out on him White Mike is portrayed as this genius kid who does well without trying and is very blunt about his opinions He doesn t do drugs a fact told so many times but finds no problems in selling it to kids his own age He lives alone because his father is too busy with work In other words, here we have an intelligent, antisocial rich kid who is lonely Yes, White Mike is lonely His report card is not that much different from other students and people around him are generally nice towards him Maybe I m being harsh but we never get an understanding of why he decided to sell drugs You don t just do that because you re bored There is a reason and we re never given that Being lonely makes it likely that he would take drugs but not sell them.Moving on, most of these kids despite spending most of their time drinking and doing drugs excel in school They have scholarships and acceptance letters and what not I m not trying to say that people who drink and or do drugs can t excel in school No, I m confused as to how they are excelling In the entire week no one studied once They just do very well, yet the manner in which they speak and think doesn t replicate the supposed 90s they are getting A great example, is when a student says he wants to go into medicine but the only classes he s taking are Molecular bio, Latin, English, and History Now, I don t know how American schools work, but I m pretty sure you need than that if you want to go into medicine, specifically chemistry It s a minor detail but this whole book is so jumbled that it stands out.Characters, as I ve said, are so shallow because the author didn t take the time to flesh them out He also puts in characters that have no impact to the story and give really bad stereotypes to different groups of minorities For example, Japanese women having small feet I don t know what that had to do with the story at all.The worst part of this story was that there is one character who you know from the beginning set up to be this really creepy messed up person You know something bad it going to happen involving them but why they are like that is never given They re just the textbook evil character And when the climax occurs, it s just messy Nothing makes sense as to why this person is doing what they are doing and it just ends on that note Nobody gets admonished or punished for breaking the law Nobody s story gets concluded Just climax and a short random reflection and makes no impact to the story.

    A poorly written book by up and coming writer Nick McDonell The guy was 17 years old and it showed in his writing It was the sort of thing that you think is genius when you re a kid and writing is your passion What convinced me to buy the book is the wonderful reviews in New York Magazine and the blurbs in the back, featuring one by Hunter S Thompson and Joan Didion What the back cover doesn t mention, however, is that these are friends of his parents I find it sickening that they would use their fame to promote a horrible writer I would likely drink a gallon of gasoline and then smoke before reading this book again.

    my teacher whyare we supposed to be shocked that rich white teens from the upper east side think about sex and drugs all the time we been knewthe twist or whatever you wanna call it, was so weak and described in 3 pages or less.i had to sit through all of white mike s random, completely unrelated flashbacks for this and why was that scene with andrew and sven in there if it s never mentioned again the only reason i gabe this 2 stars instead of 1 is because it was a pretty fast read so _ _

    A gallery of insights into edgy teen lives as opposed to a believable narrative with a climax It fell flat for me, but 2 stars because the writing style was good.

    The book s climax doesn t come until the last ten or so pages, but it still was able to hold my attention One of the amazing things about this book is that it was written by a seventeen year old boy His writing seems beyond what most seventeen year olds could do Even though the story is based around drugs, sex, and partying, McDonell is able to take us into the story of a coming of age and hardships of young adults The main character White Mike does not really fit in with the rest of the characters because he has experienced too much However, he is still connected to their world He is their drug dealer We see kids losing themselves to exterior pressures and falling deeper into a hole that they won t be able to get out of Definitely very intense and I wouldn t recommend it for everyone The book is shocking and held my attention throughout.

    Rezension An dieses Buch bin ich vollkommen ohne jegliche Erwartung herangegangen Trotzdem hat das Buch es geschafft, irgendwie noch schlechter zu sein Denn auf den ersten 225 von 230 Seiten passiert nichts Die einzelnen Kapitel, die manchmal nur eine und selten mehr als vier Seiten lang sind, sind kaum zusammenh ngende Aneinanderreihung derselben Dinge Es geht um das Beschaffen von Drogen, das Konsumieren von Drogen, Schl gereien und andere Gewalttaten, Partys, Alkohol und Sex wobei die Charaktere nicht einmal wirklich Sex haben, sondern sich einfach nur in aller Vulgarit t dar ber auslassen, dass sie jedes M dchen gerne ins Bett bekommen w rden Mehr Handlung hat das Buch nicht, bevor es dann mit einem kurz zusammengefassten, vollkommen aus dem Zusammenhang gerissenen Knaller endet Das war wirklich unglaublich langweilig zu lesen M glicherweise soll die Tatsache, dass die Charaktere beinahe alle minderj hrig sind, den Leser schockieren, aber das ist v llig an mir vorbei gegangen.Neben der fehlenden Handlung waren auch die st ndigen Perspektivenwechsel ein gro es Problem f r mich Bis zum Schluss konnte ich die Figuren schlichtweg nicht auseinander halten Sie sind alle Kinder reicher Eltern, nehmen Drogen, feiern Partys, betrinken sich und denken, egal ob m nnlich oder weiblich, st ndig ber den Sex nach, den sie dann doch nicht haben Weder im Charakter noch in den Handlungen haben sich die Charaktere irgendwie unterschieden Ich muss ehrlicherweise gestehen, dass ich nicht einmal wei , aus wie vielen Perspektiven das Buch eigentlich geschildert wird Gesch tzt h tte ich zwischen zehn und zwanzig Jede neue Perspektive war aber blo eine Wiederholung der Beschreibungen irgendeines vorherigen Erz hlers mit einem neuen Namen Noch verwirrender wurde es dadurch, dass die Charaktere sich zum Teil kennen, zum Teil aber auch nicht, manchmal haben sie schon voneinander geh rt oder sie kennen sich um mehrere Ecken Oder auch nicht.Die einzige Figur, die aus der gleichf rmigen Masse heraussticht, ist White Mike Allerdings sind die Kapitel, die aus seiner Perspektive geschildert werden, kein St ck interessanter Er trifft einfach nur nacheinander die unz hligen Charaktere und verkauft ihnen Drogen Dabei wird auch keinerlei Begr ndung geliefert, warum er das macht Er ist intelligent genug, um aufs College zu gehen, hat das Geld nicht n tig, die falschen Freunde hat er auch nicht und unter Druck gesetzt wird er ebenfalls nicht Er dealt halt einfach Das hebt ihn zwar von den anderen Charakteren ab, da er auf der anderen Seite des Tisches sitzt, aber schlussendlich ist er genauso platt konstruiert wie alle andere Figuren.Fazit Mit diesem Buch konnte ich berhaupt nichts anfangen Es wird erz hlt von einer extrem gro en Anzahl an Figuren, die ich aber berhaupt nicht auseinander halten kann, weil sie alle gleich denken und handeln Daher wei ich nicht einmal, wie viele Erz hler es tats chlich sind Die kurzen, aneinander gereihten Kapitel wiederholen trotz vieler Erz hler immer dieselben Elemente Drogen, Alkohol, Sex, Partys und Gewalt Nur die letzten f nf Seiten haben tats chlich Handlung, die allerdings v llig aus dem Zusammenhang gerissen ist Da f r mich an Zw lf absolut gar nichts gestimmt hat, vergebe ich nur eine Schreibfeder.http jennys buecherkiste.blogspot.d
