5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Even better the second time 25 de noviembre de 2012

The first time I read this it was hilarious. The second time it was just as funny, but I also found it to be a serious novel: an insightful coming-of-age story, with engaging characters and themes. One reviewer said that Mr. Rich is no JD Salinger; this is true, Rich is better.

I first read a review of "What in God's Name" and was intrigued. When I went to purchase it, Ellion Allagash was offered as a suggestion so I went for it. I loved both books so much so i have order Simopn rich's other 2 books.

I probably would have loved it as a 13 year old. As a 37 year old man I found it an easy, entertaining read with a few laughs.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Moves like an indie comedy movie 17 de abril de 2015

If you like Wes Anderson films, this book will definitely be an appealing read. The book has a dry wit that could be found in an episode of the Office. It almost doesn't read like a common prose story. In many ways it reminds me of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy in presentation. The main storyline is separated with the musings and stories told by the main protagonist, Seymour and occasionally by Elliott's father. The only difference is that the narrative of this book is a bit more focused (Hitchhikers Guide still rules all). If you want an easy read, that's really funny, I would highly recommend this book. Some day this will make a great film if some one adapts it.

"Elliot Allagash" is a fantasy for adolescents. Can Seymour Herstein, a chubby, unpopular eighth grade prep school boy consigned to chugging chocolate milks at the loser lunch table be transformed almost instantly into an athletic, straight-A class president? Yes, he can! Enter Elliot Allagash, a fabulously wealthy, martini-swilling, completely amoral classmate and his sidekick, the protean and vaguely menacing chauffeur, James; for the two of them, there is nothing that money, lies, and guile cannot buy, from the answers to the French quiz to a slot for Seymour (along with Elliot, of course) at Harvard.

Like a fairy tale, it is completely improbable---characters, plot, the whole thing. Or perhaps a better comparison is to a video game. One of Seymour's favorites is Ninja Streets, the highest of whose 256 levels is impossible to reach, unless you have the secret key. When Seymour finally gets to the highest level, the action hero character disappears and the screen goes black. "Elliot Allagash" is like that; each action (Elliot gets Seymour on TV, Elliot gets Seymour the popular girl, Elliot ruins the reputation of a restaurant that insults him, Elliot makes everyone believe that Seymour is researching the cure for a terrible disease, and so on) requires more cunning and is more unbelievable than the last.

Fairy tale? Video game? Overcoming one's eighth grade demons? Gaming the college application system? This isn't comedy for adults, it's Young Adult Literature. Appropriate to that genre, there's a nice moral ending, too, when Seymour's increasingly tenuous persona DOES go black, like the video game, and he returns to the loving arms of his nice but clueless parents.

There was one puzzle. Why does the evil young Allagash bear the name of a remote Maine wilderness? Maybe it's a clever little anagram for what Elliot does (figuratively) to just about everyone in this goofy, not very funny, and exceedingly slight novel, more deserving of a review in Library Journal than (twice!) in The New York Times. I fear that this book will never reach its true audience, as the eighth graders I know don't generally peruse the Times book review section. Maybe they'll read it on their cell phones; it's just the thing for whiling away the time in the orthodontist's waiting room.
