    [PDF/EPUB] (The House of Tomorrow) In many regards The House of Tomorrow isn't a spectacular book It follows a formula that has become trite in fiction The story largely rolls out as most readers would expect from a coming of age story Every time a new character pops up you can guess the role they'll play Stylistically The House of Tomorrow doesn't stand outDespite its lack of surprises Peter Bognanni's debut novel is still an interesting and entertaining read Though it stic

I could tell you what it s about but it ll just sound weird and you ll think Yeah that ll be funInstead I m going to tell you what it s like It s basically like if Nick Hornby Douglas Coupland in his Generation XMicroserfs days and Tom Perrotta teamed up to write a book about a teenage boy and his introduction to punk music It s a story about teenagers and it actually is like what it s like to be a teenager It s a book that is pretty far outside of my experience I could not tell you thing one about anything the characters experience in this novel and yet I completely get everything It s got nothing to do with me but it s my story And I bet you ll have the same reaction because everyone knows what it s like to experience something for the first time and get a thrill of recognition that sense of Oh yeah this is what I was waiting forAnd without sounding lame I hope I was waiting for this book And this is Peter Bognanni s debut novel I cannot wait to see what else he has in store for readers I hope he s prolific than Hornby Perrotta have been thus far

Read The House of Tomorrow 107 Y in town Jared Whitcomb is a chain smoking sixteen year old heart transplant recipient who befriends Sebastian and begins to teach him about all the things he has been missing including grape soda girls and Sid Vicious They form a punk band called The Ras. I usually find it easy to rate a book based on what it s trying to be but I struggled with this one I genuinely love the premise oddball kid raised in the home of an aging wannabe futurist finds an outlet in punk rock Buckminster Fuller research Check Some fun knowing references to punk rock Check Depth Check Well kindasometimesat least when the narrator is comparing and contrasting futurist ideology with punk rock anarchy Then it does a sloppy pivot into YAwhich would be awesome if it were handled well Instead it flirts halfheartedly with sick teen tropes and paints the female characters as imploding bundles of nerves in need of any male presence to calm and validate them even an oddball teen kid who has barely stepped out of his Nana s geodesic domeand of coursethe oddball teen s new angsty teen friend does a lot of up and coming misogynist babblingIn Bognanni s defense there IS a great moment when the protagonist calls out his buddy on the fact that all his objectifying talk amounts to a not so subtle cover for his own insecurity and inexperienceIn those moments I started to feel like maybe this book WAS doing things right than I thought I mean I think it IS important to understand the underlying pain that sometimes sparks people especially teens to spread ignorance pain and anger I LIKE being challenged to process unseemly behavior in a character that I otherwise want to root for If the female characters hadn t been SO poorly written I think I would have been inclined to read a lot moments in the text as nuanced social commentary As it stands unfortunately the misogyny just read as misogyny That being said I d be willing to give Bognanni another try As I mentioned earlier the premise was fantastic and this book came out in 2010 That is a lot of time to mature and develop in a world that has gotten a lot better at encouraging writers to confront their personal biases and narrow lenses
