    Of course this novel has no literary value But it has left a big footprint in my youth and in many others around me without being silly teeny or vulgar

    Teenage angst and love in Bologna Italy A slangy slender book that absolutely sparkles with life It's been said that this is no 'literary' work but it moved me far than another so called masterpiece in the same genre A Catcher in the Rye Brizzi's writing is jam packed with energy humor and impressionable moments of touching good will In the end I was almost surprised to find myself reading a love story seemingly an impossible feat but Brizzi pulls it off I grew up in a totally different time and place nonetheless 'Jack Frusciante Has Left the Band' touched a powerful nostalgic nerve in me and reminded me in a visceral way of how it really felt to be a teenager

    I read this book some time agoAnyway I remember how much I loved itIf you're in your teen years it'll reach your heart but I think it can be appreciable by adults too The main character Alex is like an italian Holden Caulfield of the 90s You'll love him or you'll hate him anyway he's a typical clever and thinking teenagerI loved the way this book is written and I loved the charactersA coming of age story that will have forever a special place in my heart and will alway remind me of my teen years

    This book was a major let down Maybe the title was deceiving to me because I thought it would draw inspiration from amazingly twisted yet beautiful life of musician John Frusciante but there was actually very little about Frusciante's life in the book So I admit my expectations were too high and were completely off about the book but I still gave it a try However I could not endure the whining narrative of Alex His excessive complaining about his family and others around me made the book intolerable So what if his family likes watching TV that's not impacting you in any way so stop complaining about itbut I digress Too much navel gazing and self pity for me At least I learned that's not how I want to write

    I read this one a few years ago right before I went to Rome to take a couple of summer classes I keep meaning to read of Brizzi's work but I just haven't done so yet I really enjoyed the coming of age story presented in this work and need to look up some of Brizzi's books

    The book is exactly what it says on the tin the awkward memoirs of a misguided teenager in love Nowhere near as good as Catcher in the Rye or even better Ham on Rye but draws much of the same inspiration from that gap between youthful innocence and impending adulthood The novel is worth reading however just for the vivid descriptions of Italian or Bolognese youth cultureAnd just a note; don't expect anything about John Frusciante a brief and in my opinion completely ridiculous paragraph about him is about all you'll get

    Interesting book with funny grammar to prove a point This is a very relatable book for all teenagers and certainly depict uite a picture of Alex's life i found it amusing and funny it had a lot of hidden messages and had an interesting plot to it with an intriguing twist around the end of the book It is not the usual book but it does paint a pretty good picture of how life for a high classed teenager really is and how hard it is to overcome certain tasks I recommend it to everyone looking for a simple read and a funny story with lots of irony

    one of my favorite books of all time this book expressed who i was and who i wanted to be at age 16 and ive retained whole parts of it it was no accident the day i was kicked out of high school when i had to give a monologue to pass my theater class i chose a passage from this book

    it was a history novel because the protagonist lived in the 1990s and I was able to read a bit of the world of the teens in that decade The story is a sort of “Christiane F – The guys from the Berlin Zoo” an iconic novel and movie of the 1980s but here the protagonist a hard 17 yrs old guy with problems of addictions is saved by a class mate who eventually becomes his girlfriendThe language is the “slang” spoken by the then guys plenty of swear words and vulgarities Guitarist John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers is just a mention in the book it is not his bio or anything dedicated to him and presumably the author is a huge fan of
