D a way out I won t spoil it but let s just say that the jail librarian is instrumentalWhat I took from this book than but let s just say that the jail librarian is instrumentalWhat I took from this book than story itself was the way in which it was told He maintained a primarily chronological structure in the alternating chapters so although the book jumps back and forth in time the reader always knows where she is because he tells the ifferent stories
in a this happened then this happened order Within this framework there a this happened then this happened order Within this framework there a few flashbacks but the story was carried forward by the passage of time We knew he either get out of jail or be sent to prison We knew he eventually be arrested and go to jail We knew he grew to at least the age of sixteen All of this pulls the reader along We are also pulled along by the uestion of what exactly happened since he teases us by referring to the ay he set the school on fire and the night the police chased own he and his friend Phillip before he actually tells the eventsThis book is not for the faint of heart but it s efinitely worth the read So I was strolling in the YA section of my local library one afternoon after work and saw this book I idn t even read the inside flap before I knew that I would give it a chance Anyway I m glad I Times of Bede didThis is a nonfiction memoir about a year that the author served in prison at the age of 16 for armed robbery In between the chapters of theescriptions of mind numbing The Catechism of the Council of Trent dullness of prison life there are chapters thatetail the author s life leading up to his crime which are highly City for Sale: Ed Koch and the Betrayal of New York disturbing to say the least The author s childhood was veryysfunctional with incidences such as the torture of animals casual violence underage sex and racism His lack of conscience as he oes
THESE THINGS AND OTHER FORMS OF CRUELTY MADE HIM things and other forms of cruelty made him unlikable person yet I realized early on that he is just as much of a victim as a villain here Nathan s father is abusive as well beating and psychologically tormenting his familyAlthough this book is labeled YA I wouldn t recommend it for everyone in that age range Nor would I advocate taking any of the brutal etails out either as they re absolutely critical in understanding why the author ended up in prison The only thing I Književna groupie 2: Strovaljivanje didn t like about this book is the way that the emotional change of the author was portrayed here While we know that prisonid change him and he s certainly not the same as before very few etails are given on when and how the exact moment of this realization occurs For a person as rotten as the author was these etails are important Definitely Davids Sling do recommend this book Not for the faint of heart though There are absolutely no uotes that I wanted to save from this book which is a rarity I am happy the young man turned his life around while he was in jail and was horrified at the things heid growing up uick read memoir Chapters alternate between nate s life leading up to his crime and imprisonment and then his time in prison His childhood will break your heart Some mentions of prison rape mostly nate s fear of it not graphic Also mentions of violence alcohol use guns and sex but again not graphic or gratuitous Interesting but I Reality Hunger: A Manifesto. David Shields didn t feel that Nate s life change to a presumably law abiding educated well adjusted member of the community was very well explained considering that he was sociopathic until he served his year in prison was the incarceration sufficient to cause him to completely change If so why is there so much recidivismThis book was shelved in the TEEN section at the Marion library I was flabbergasted OMG I hardly think the material presented here is suitable fodder for young minds at least those younger than sixteen or so unless they are unusually mature Nate is one of those people who can t seem to utter a complete sentence without including a four letter word He tortures andismembers small animals for fun he employs violence on a whim he sees females as primarily instruments of his own pleasure and he speaks casually of killing people I think he could easily have perpetrated a Columbine style assault on his school since he hated everything about it except possibly art I can imagine how a parent might react upon stumbling across this book in their child s possession If this is the kind of literature being recommended for teenagers nowadays no wonder teens seem to have so many problems becoming well adjusted members of society. Ough reading and reflection he comes to see that his life can be ifferent from all he's known up to this pointNathan's story of his year in jail and the life that led him there combine to create a powerful portrait of an American youth gone bad and a moving story of redempti. Good Behavior by Nathan L Henry is a good book to read I thin this because its really entertaining and it shows you how bad prison really is It goes into a lot of etail about what goes on in there I feel like after you read this it will make you think twice about your actions because they may lead you to prison and reading this will make you not wanna be there Good Behavior by Nathan L Henry is a memoir of the authors year he Served In Prison For in prison for robbery at the age of 16 while also jumping back to his life leading up to it and what caused him to become what he was when he committed his crime This book is a great memoir and is one of the few non fiction books that has kept me interested and kept me readingHowever this book is not suitable for all ages This book is heavily focused on Henry s childhood which is not a healthy one Topics such as the brutal Dangerously Placed details of killing woodland animals underage sex and prostitution fighting rapes murder and racism are all but common in this book Henryoes not spare any Just Destiny detail talking about the events that shaped him into the kid who robbed a gas station at gunpoint before getting into a car chase in a car he stole from his parents While these parts are graphic and vulgar they are crucially important to the story at hand and important to us as the reader to get a grasp on the character that is Nathan L HenryHowever the book is not without its flaws One of the biggest flaws that I ve seen the most criticism on is sadly the lack of visible character growth In his time as a prisoner we see him as a racist sexist bloodthirst teen then a calm collected but still prone to anger inmate and then suddenly he s reformed with absolutely no explanation behind it We re led to believe that his time in prison changed him but aside from the lack of his vulgarityue to his limitations we see no real change He Paradise Run doesn t visibly grow enough for us to relate with it As he skips through his time at prison focusing on his time leading up to it he never really elaborates enough on his growth for us to realize he s growing Nonetheless the time he spent in prison has though not shown well enough changed him Aside from this admittedly major flaw I still say that Nathan L Henry s novel Good Behavior was a phenomenal Non Fiction book that kept me reading to the very end and even coming back for I would heavily recommend it to anyone who seems interested in this book and can tolerate the heavy vulgarity In my opinion if the glaring weakness that this book has was resolved it would be a perfect book in my eyes Pairing and Overview I will pair the book Good Behavior by Nathan Henry with the book Monster Both textsepict a young adult male in jail the protagonist in Monster is not guilty of his charge but Henry recalls real life crimes he id commit and his experience after being tried as an adult Both texts present accurate portrayals that should hopefully eter teens from a elinuent lifestyle1 Book Citation Henry Nathan L Good Behavior New York Bloomsbury 20102 Audience Junior and senior high students who have an interest in crime and violence and recovery Stories such as this often appeal to urban teens but this one may appeal to a wider audience because Henry is from a small town 3 Selection Criteria Good Behavior is a recent text that contains the factual firsthand experiences of the author Bloomsbury publishing was founded in Britain and was named Publisher of the Year in 1999 and Britain and was named Publisher of the Year in 1999 and they attribute much of their growth to the Harry Potter series The subject matter and language of this book are of interest to high school students and much of it is unfortunately relatable to underprivileged teens The scope of the text is limited to the author s personal experience but the work presents an important and meaningful perspective Various editorial reviews note that the writing is somewhat limited and uneven but the graphic style of
