    1. The Way Home is another stellar effort from George Pelecanos, one of the greatest working writers in America today Though Pelecanos works under the aegis of crime writer his novels have become vastly encompassing than that, so acute at displaying American Dreams, lost found, and so spot on in the rare and exact eye he puts on the working class and under class of the Washington DC area that it becomes increasingly apparent that his work is serious and lasting literature, and that he is as valuab [...]


    2. Chris Flynn is a troubled youth from DC and after some brushes with the law, finds himself in reform school Upon his release, he is walking the straight and narrow, working for his father, when he and a friend stumble upon a gym bag full of money on a carpet laying job They don t take the money but it goes missing anyway and the owners come gunning for them Can Chris stay on the right path or will he fall back into his old ways In The Way Home, Pelecanos revisits themes from some his earlier boo [...]


    3. This is a solid effort from George Pelecanos, but it suffers by comparison to some of his better books Its principal themes involve the relationship between fathers and sons and the inadequacies of the juvenile justice system But you get the feeling that Pelecanos is so determined to focus on these issues that he occasionally allows the story suffer for it.The main protagonist, Chris Flynn, lost his way as a teenager, but for reasons that aren t entirely clear He comes from a solid, two parent h [...]


    4. I m skeptical whenever a critic claims a genre writer gets better with every book Most writers I ve followed including, perhaps especially, the high falutin types work steadily until they find their groove Once established, they return to the groove and work it until it becomes a rut George Pelecanos came on the crime fiction scene just over 15 years ago, and immediately proved himself as someone worth reading And, dammit, he gets better with every book He definitely has his groove, but it is ga [...]


    5. Just a note There s a spoiler in the final third of this review, but it shouldn t matter to you because it is an annoying spoiler and part of the reason you shouldn t read The Way Home ON WITH THE REVIEW I expected from one of the writers of The Wire I guess this is unfair to George Pelecanos I mean it s not his fault that the other fiction writers associated with The Best Show Ever Aired are all gods of the crime fiction realm Not everyone can be Dennis Lehane, Richard Price, or even David Sim [...]


    6. THE WIREAnche attori e registi importanti dicono che le serie televisive si spingono in territori di sperimentazione che il cinema ormai diserta per inseguire piuttosto sequel, prequel, remake, spin off, videogiochi, fumetti le serie televisive, sia per il linguaggio narrativo che quello visivo, adesso hanno preso il ruolo del cinema, diventato invece sempre pi mainstream E il primo aspetto che colpisce i grandi attori e i grandi registi avvicinandosi a una serie televisiva la possibilit di pote [...]


    7. According to the list in the front of the book, this is Pelecanos 16 book I have read quite a few of them and come back for every time I remember to look if he has a new book I read slowly and my recent trend is to read non fiction books which automatically slows me down even I have just begun reading some novels again and am enjoying the fact that I can read some shorter novels in just a few dayd they lived happily ever after Pelecanos take is If storytellers told it true, all stories would e [...]


    8. I was led to buy this book by the little tag above the author s name, telling me it was by one of the award winning writers of The Wire Sadly, The Way Home did not live up to the standard this suggests The Wire was compelling and essential viewing, peopled by characters that all felt real to me The Way Home was pedestrian storytelling peopled by characters that could have been interesting if given a chance, only for Pelecanos to decide not to show any growth or change but simply tell us about it [...]


    9. Although Thomas Flynn never attended college, he became a successful entrepreneur All he wants for his son, Chris, is to see him go to college and succeed in life But Chris has no interest in school and drifts toward a life of drugs and petty crime Placed in a juvenile facility until 18, Chris takes a job with his father once he graduates high school Although Flynn is disappointed in Chris and Chris resents his father s plans for his future, the two learn to work together without conflict Thomas [...]

    11. Pelecanos adds his twist to a standard crime story people find a large sum of money and trouble follows As always with Pelecanos, the crime is far less important than the characters Most of this one hinges on a father son relationship with son Chris trying to live down his past as a teen age criminal and his father s disappointment that he hasn t grown into a successful man.The first part of the book is about young Chris committing a minor crime spree just because of teen age stupidity and wind [...]


    12. Tom and Amanda Flynn believed that if you raised a child in a comfortable home, good schools, church and with two loving parents, it should be what a child needs to be successful in life It didn t seem to work for their son, Christopher By the time Chris was sixteen his grades were down, he stopped playing sports, started shoplifting, fighting, smoking marijuana and was headed for jail.A stretch in a juvenile jail worked for Chris He grew up and learned what he had to do to stay out of jail He g [...]


    13. Pelecanos, George THE WAY HOME 2009 This is a well written book in a pedestrian kind of way, but it is not what I expected from a hard boiled thriller writer of Pelecanos talent It is of a novel of crime and punishment and redemption of a young boy who is placed in a juvenile detention center and is expected to rehabilitate himself It is a screed against the inhuman aspects of such detention centers and a call to arms to change the system Rather than being issued as a novel for the mainstream r [...]


    14. I m really torn on my opinion of this one My main complaint is quite similar to my issue with Pelecanos previous novel The Turnaround, in that it was a bit too transparent in trumpeting the importance of Honor and Responsibility and Fathers Having A Catch With Their Sons Which is a shame, because the story and the characters are compelling enough to convey such points The author s experience as a writer for The Wire shows through, as he maintains his ability to tell layered crime stories suffuse [...]


    15. Meh The story was a bit weak, but great characters The writing was pretty good but the slang dialogue was cringe worthy It was missing that X factor for me.

    17. Shortly after they were married, Thomas and Amanda Flynn had a baby girl, Kate, who lived for two days After a few years of trying, they finally had a boy, Chris, who never could quite live up to the image of Kate that Thomas had in his mind Thomas would always think about what Kate would be doing, had she lived Chris quit trying to please his father and got into trouble for stealing, using and selling drugs, fighting and reckless driving He was finally sentenced to Juvenile Detention where he [...]

    19. The Way Home is good, concise story about the changing relationship of a father and son during the son s sudden descent into juvenile delinquency and mischief When Chris Flynn suddenly jumps the tracks from becoming a promising college bound young man to a rebellious, drug dabbling underachiever, his father Thomas is beside himself with guilt and frustration Chris road ultimately leads to a stint in juvenile detention, where he forges a bond with several other young men on similar paths Upon his [...]


    20. The power of George Pelecanos is in his deeply realistic characterizations of his protagonists and his characters dialogue, which is some of the best I have ever come across in any genre You feel for them, feel like you know them, and love and hate them In this respect, this book is vintage Pelecanos That said, there is a Pelecanos formula for plot that he rarely deviates from, which is there are some good guys, there are some bad guys, and then the good guys debate whether to go above the law o [...]


    21. In his past three novels, The Night Gardener, The Turnaround, and now The Way Home, Pelecanos has gone from being a great crime novelist to a great novelist without losing any of the attributes that made him such a master of crime fiction an ear for authentic dialogue, a feel for the details of life in the nation s capital and its suburbs, a connoiseur s appreciation of pop music and culture, and a gift for portraying splendid villains who are unrepentingly evil The deliciously bad to the bone b [...]


    22. I was impressed with The Way Home I was impressed how George Pelecanos plunged into the challenge of taking on a subject far too often ignored in all communities and that subject is how to save our youth after they ve served time in a juvenile facility Pelecanos shows how the prison system fails our children after punishing them, and often punishing them to severely The system punishes our children then throws them back into the communities that failed them In The Way Home we follow four youths [...]


    23. I started another book, had to return it to the library, and knocked out The Way Home while waiting for the original book I started to become available again All that to say, this is a fast read And, while this does not have the plot richness and depth of The Night Gardener, my favorite Pelecanos novel, it still had the elements that I love from this author his incredible ear for dialogue, his generous use of Washington locations for the action and not K Street Washington, but the real Washingto [...]


    24. I ve read all of the Pelecanos novels, starting with Drama City and then getting back into the various cycles This was disappointing I can see that he is trying to broaden out his scope but I don t think this one rings true For new readers I suggest you start with his earlier novels which build into a rich fabric of characters that weave in and out of plots You will experience better plots, great characters and fantastic dialogue Leave the Way Home till later.


    25. I love how Pelecanos has evolved from detective murder mystery type cases that get solved even if they re never really stereotypically like that to telling stories in and around crime and how people get brushed up against it in a myriad of ways Before he s done soldiers back from Iraq and here it s the juvenile system He does great at exploring the topic all the while setting up the story with a missing case of money and a character dead in the wake of it It s all tied together with the main cha [...]


    26. Loved this book Read it straight after A Brief History of Seven Killings which is an epic book with a huge cast of characters so really enjoyed being able to dive straight in to this much simple story.However, that is not to talk it down The writing is simple but the dialogue and description of the characters is excellent I really cared for the characters and wanted them to succeed Great story and Pelecanos really paints a picture of the life of a juvenile offender and the effect on the family. [...]


    27. I was attracted to the book because the author is George Pelicans, the independent film producer, essayist, recipient of numerous international writing awards, a producer and an Emmy nominated writer of the HBO series The Wire, and the author of bestselling series of novels set in and around Washington, DC The novel is beautifully written, taut and poignant, and the characters not ones I often find myself reading about It stretched me and I learned any number of things from the story.


    28. Despite the fact that this book was grittier than I normally read, I still felt it was a good solid story I would be inclined to read Pelecanos again, based on this novel The author is great at slipping social issues into his plot, in giving us a story, yes, but also in giving us a thing or two to ruminate upon.


    29. I know George Pelecanos is a well respected novelist and writer for TV the critically acclaimed The Wire, for one example But I found it impossible to read his colorless, pedestrian prose, at least in this novel Sorry life is too short to spend reading descriptions that fall flat and lifeless dialogue.
