    There is a week break from school and the main character Ditto a male probably 17 never explained about his name knows he needs a break from life He and his sick father can't seem to have a normal conversation and the last time they argued his father had a minor heart attack and passed out in his mashed potatoesAlthough it seems heartless to want to get away with his father in the hospital and his mother in major freak

    Ditto a high school sopho while attempting to refute a friends “Charges Against Literature” runs into a series of adventures after Ditto’s father suffers a heart attack father had been ill for some time; first in a series I believe long on my “to read” list; purchased years ago from where I can’t tell you; 180 pgs; I am not inclined to read the rest of this series though I liked #4 read in 2014

    I really liked this one It was different from everything else I've ever read and it's been years since I've read a book with such extensive vocabulary That's part of the reason I loved this book's style Another reason is that it was well just something else Which is of course the point of this book But still I loved how the format changed all the time and how sometimes even pictures were used to tell part of the story

  5. says:

    I think this is out of the 3 I've read so far Aidan's most abstract work And I think in order to give this story it's depth it has to be that way And I really like how creative he gets with the way he writes it The story was very short for me It only took me two days to read but it was a good story nonetheless What I took from it is that in writing fiction it must be personal and come from personal experiences

  6. says:

    Not as good as This Is All of course or Dance On My Grave Ditto and Morgan remind me of Phineas and Gene but maybe that's because I was reading both books around the same time?

Gan’s Charges Against Literature uickly escalates into a multilevel challenge After Ditto’s father suffers a heart attack in the middle of one of their fights Ditto decides he has to get away for a few days to sort out his life His chronicle of his experiences becomes his rebuttal to Morgan’s Charges But is this thought provoking exami. I think this is out of the 3 I ve read so far Aidan s most abstract work And I think in order to give this story it s depth it has to be that way And I really like how creative he gets with the way he writes it The story was very short for me It only took me two days to read but it was a good story nonetheless What I took from it is that in writing fiction it must be personal and come from personal experiences in order for it to be valid and meaningful As this is one of my major philosophies on writing I really loved the end of this book
