So this Canadian YA novel that weaves First Nations culture was recommended by a fellow educator It was purchased along with other books for my classroom library It has been picked up time and time again by my students but they have shared that they just haven t been able to get through it So I decided I needed to find out for myself I suspect that part of what might be uncomfortable for them is that the story for some may hit too close to home Jared our teenage protagonist is responsible for his parents than they are of him Drug abuse and alcoholism are big factors to the break up of his family Mix that in with teenage pregnancy suicide Idle no More and residential schools and is a heavy text There is humor but it is also pretty darkBut for all its topics I didn t like the book I am in the minority because this book has plenty of glowing reviews The fact that it is a trilogy doesn t interest me either

Guys there s no review I hate writing than that of a book that s disappointed me I had been really looking forward to getting down with Canadian fantasy novel Son of a Trickster which promised an indigenous cast some teenage antics and the sort of magical goings on that usually tickle my fancy To boot I was also pumped to read something by Eden Robinson who has been written about in glowing terms by a few Canadian publications Unfortunately Son of a Trickster is an extremely unbalanced novel that dabbles a bit in everything without finding its own voiceOur protagonist sixteen year old Jared is a dude who s had a rough go of it His mom and dad both have substance abuse issues and since they split Jared s been subject to a slew of his mom s less than stellar boyfriends Though the reality and voice portrayed in this novel are important ones to have on display in our literature the realization of the world is banal and the writing isn t all that exciting either Or at least the Jared perspective chapters aren t all that excitingWhat s Robinson spends oodles of time introducing a cast of teenage characters whose voices were cringe inducing than realistic The dialogue these kids spout alternates between generic high school TV drama unconvincing declarations of emotion I m hunting for edibles and some painful virtue signalling Robinson also has this tendency to insert a popular song from a few years ago and have the kids sing the song I m not sure why this irked me so much I m usually a fan of real world art finding its way into my novels but it made the book feel forced The drinking habits of Jared his friends and family also take centre stage for the bulk of the novel Indeed there s not many chapters that pass by where the characters draw sober breaths In the right hands writing about addiction can be compelling empathy inducing and shocking in eual measure Instead the book falls into a tedious routine of having most chapters open with Jared waking up unsure of where he is or how he arrived in that particular predicament By the time Jared starts to change his ways the novel had lost most of my good faithWhen I look back on Son of a Trickster I think of the many great elements of the book that failed to come together for me Though I didn t touch on it much the fantasy aspect of the book really doesn t come into play until the last third of the novel and by then it s too little too late for Son of a Trickster It s a real shame that this book fell so flat for me especially since this books seems to have landed uite well with the press and my fellow Goodreadians Though I m not ready to drop the axe on the trilogy as a whole I doubt I ll be returning to Son of a Trickster s seuel later this year with any urgency

Son of a Trickster is a 2020 Canada reads finalist that battled in Canada s battle of the books for The one book to bring focus to Canada It is the third book I have read of the five finalists chosen this year It came in second and well I didn t think it is the one book to bring focus to Canada from the five finalists because it s not one I feel will appeal to a larger amount of readers with the magic realism and teenage POV However it gives a voice to Indigenous Canadians and their stories Eden Robinson weaves a coming of age story dark comedy with magic realism and a whole lot of family drama She captures the messy complex family dynamics through the POV of high school Jared living in Kitimat BC The magic realism adds a layer of culture and intrigue to the bleak story but I got lost in it all and didn t know what was part of the culture real or storytellingThings were off to a great start for me and I loved the snarky dialogue centred around Jared s messy life However that humor turned bleak and got tiring real fast for this older reader Eden Robinson does a good job capturing a realistic voice of a teenager sarcasm and with the dialogue between him and the other characters in the story Like in real life I became annoyed by itJared is a likable character he is compassionate and empathetic He often plays the role of the adult and provides for and manages the adults in his life while struggling with his own conflicts He drinks uses drugs and his claim to fame is his pot cookies A good part of the story digs into Jared s daily life and it felt repetitive at times and slowed down the story for meOverall I enjoyed it but it felt like storytelling to me than showing me the depth to the story and the characters
