I didn't care for the alternating first-person narration. It works in Rapp’s amazing novel, 33 Snowfish, but the sections in The Children and the Wolves that are told by four-year-old “The Frog” are unbelievable and they slowed the momentum of the story. Still, a so-so Adam Rapp novel is better than most novels out there. Recommended for teens and adults who like their fiction gritty and disturbing.

This book is a little disturbing but actually very good! I read a different Adam Rapp book recently and I like this writer...not for the faint of heart, though.
