Son of a Trickster Trickster #1 review è 103 Ten 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 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 re. 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
