The kids are out of school, trying to start a band, trying to find work; looking for something to do within the degraded terrain of their suburban hometown. This novel captures the lyricalism of their lives in an intense story of friendship and betrayal.

 A Lurid View Of Adolescence

| | See all Robert1251's reviews (9)

I bought this novel thinking it would, for some reason, be similar to the film - it is not, but is still a great read, even though it is a fairly melancholy and cold story of lost friendships, betrayal and broken relationships.
Moody gives a realistic and insightful view into adolescence and self-discovery through clever characterisation, even though the plot is fairly thin.
The environment and setting of derelict, drug-ridden, sex-obsessed, punk-rocking New Jersey really brings the story to life and makes Garden State a fanstastic and realistic read, apart from the fact that most characters are drug abusers.
I saw this novel summed up as "an American nightmare set to a blaring punk-and-thrash soundtrack" - Jim Dwyer, which is very accurate.
