Description

With striking originality and precision, Eden Robinson, the Giller-shortlisted author of the classic Monkey Beach and winner of the Writers' Trust Engel/Findley Award, blends humor with heartbreak in this compelling coming-of-age novel. Everyday teen existence meets indigenous beliefs, crazy family dynamics, and cannibalistic river otter.... The exciting first novel in her Trickster trilogy.

Everyone knows a guy like Jared: the burnout kid in high school who sells weed cookies and has a scary mom who's often wasted and wielding some kind of weapon. Jared does smoke and drink too much, and he does make the best cookies in town, and his mom is a mess, but he's also a kid who has an immense capacity for compassion and an impulse to watch over people more than twice his age, and he can't rely on anyone for consistent love and support, except for his flatulent pit bull, Baby Killer (he calls her Baby) - and now she's dead.

Jared can't count on his mom to stay sober and stick around to take care of him. He can't rely on his dad to pay the bills and support his new wife and step-daughter. Jared is only 16 but feels like he is the one who must stabilize his family's life, even look out for his elderly neighbors. But he struggles to keep everything afloat...and sometimes he blacks out. And he puzzles over why his maternal grandmother has never liked him, why she says he's the son of a trickster, that he isn't human. Mind you, ravens speak to him - even when he's not stoned.

You think you know Jared, but you don't.

Excellent Story

I love Eden Robinson's books. This one, while slow to start, turns into a wild ride. I love the mix of traditional legends and contemporary life blended together. I've been wanting a story that some how incorporates indigenous stories, characters, legends, spirituality into a story based in today. Robinson's other book Monkey Beach has quite a bit of this in it too.
The narration bugs me though. The story is set on the west coast of Canada. The characters are mostly indigenous people from up and down the pacific coast, which happens to be exactly my background (indigenous from the PNW) when one of the grandmothers was narrated having a Newfie accent (east coast of Canada for those unaware) it irked me. Then when the neighbour, who is from Northern British Columbia, speaks in a Eastern European accent it just added to my annoyance. The pronunciation of place names was also annoying. I don't think these things would annoy me so hard if I didn't know people who are so much like the characters and if I wasn't so familiar with the places in the book.

Great story!

The only issue I had was the Irish and Czech accents the narrator gave the Indigenous grandmothers 😂

Eye opening

Narration was a bit off, I feel like there could have been a better match.

Phenomenal and original

You ever notice how Urban Fantasy is so...urban? and usually white? If Neil Gaiman was a Canadian indigenous woman, then this is probably the book he would write. Robinson uses the language and rhythm of small-town and Reservation BC to transport the reader into a rich, believable world where witches and spirits live among us...and they are just as messed up as we are.

Not the book for me

What did I just listen too? it felt at times like it was mis-editted. It made no sense. Sentences beginning out of nowhere. I don't know. Maybe its me, but I did not enjoy that at all. And if this was the RE-RECORDED version, I'm scared to think of the previous one.

Son of a Trickster is a gift

This is a gift of a story. The narrator is unfortunately unfamiliar with the places.

Couldn't Do It

I tried and tried and tried to finish this book but just couldn't do it. There's just NO storyline. And it jumps from here to there, person to person, past to present without warning so you have no ideas what's happening. The narrator is pretty good but that's about it. Painful.

Not your average YA fantasy

The Giller short-listed Son of a Trickster turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Some have labelled it YA, but I disagree that a teenaged protagonist means a book belongs in that fluffy genre. Jared may be a young adult, but his problems are anything but the usual high school drama. Not only does he abuse drugs and alcohol to the extreme, but Jared learns that his mother is a witch and his real father a Trickster. #Audible1
