Evil? By Timothy Carter

Hält Plötzlich schwebt der Junge in höchster Gefahr und sein einziger Verbündeter ist ein übellauniger Dämon. Stuart was surprised by the attitude of his small and intensely religious community when he came out Instead of hatred and contempt the news that he was gay was taken in strideBut then came MasturbationOvernight the Sin of Onan biblical spiller of seed became a big deal And Stuart had just been caught by his little brother committing it in the shower Now a self confessed spiller Stuart is facing an intensity of loathing he d never expected The new obsession means that every kid has to keep their hands on their desks in plain sight but only Stuart is reuired to have a teacher go into the toilet stall with himThe fanatical hatred of the townsfolk grows exponentially until Stuart and a few other kids who ve come under suspicion must flee from the church where they ve taken refugee as the angry mob outside howls for their blood with fearsome cries for the spillers to come forthWhy the insanity A fallen angel is to blame one that grew so obsessed with this particular sin that he could no longer function angelically and now has taken up a crusade against it in Stuart s townA fallen angel can be pretty convincing putting thoughts in the heads of otherwise normal people that drive them to great excess of zeal But Stuart has a little bit of supernatural help of his own His hobby happens to be raising demons with all the proper safety mechanisms in place Fon Pyre his demonic acuaintance might have what it takes to rid the town of the masturbation hating angel The only problem with this is that Fen Pyre also has rending and other nastiness in mind when he looks at StuartCarter has taken fanaticism to ridiculous extremes Stuart s lightly delivered narrative There are few things I hate than tomatoes but burning to death is one of them p 153 fast paced and tense story make Evil hands down pun intended an enthralling read The demonic Fen Pyre is a fine addition to the cast of characters nicely removing the story from the real world and adding comic relief I don t usually pass the YA books I read on to my husband but I gave him this one to read and he too enjoyed it very muchYet without ever betraying the farcical elements of the book Carter makes thought provoking points about tolerance and the dangers of over literal de contextualized biblical interpretation It is most emphatically not an antireligious book but it is one that might well make the reader uestion the definition of sin

REVIEW Evil? By Timothy Carter

Macht doch jeder Stuart ahnt nicht dass er dadurch versehentlich einen Engel erzürnt der das für eine Todsünde. How did we end up hereI really can t remember how I came across EVIL whether it was from another blogger or something I saw on a passing website I have no idea I know I did get this one from PaperBackSwap hooray for free but other than that I can t remember how it came to fall into my lap Only that I read that blurb and immediately knew I had to read it When I finally got around to it Seeing as how it s been on my to read list for a couple years now I ve finally decided to get around to it Okay book You ve got 50 pages Go Instantly the tone of voice the sardonic sense of humor and the poking and prodding Carter does at religion in general really made me a little giddy It unapologetically rips apart the mob mentality that the super serious can get and puts it into this hilarious albeit somewhat terrifying light that redefines one s concept of evil and just how bastardized something like the bible can get Who needs context when you ve got fanatics Since I have an unabashed interest in the psychology of religion I felt this would be a good foray into the minds of the irrationally intolerant without getting uncomfortably serious The tone despite the underlying topic stayed light What worked I thought Carter s poke at the rape of religion was excellent and so incredibly poignant in today s world where context is what people make of it and only that Stuart is a gay boy in a hyper religious town but that s okay The fact that he was caught masturbating Well now that s worthy of tying him to a stake Doesn t make sense It s not supposed to It s about picking and choosing what s good what s bad what s tolerable and worthy of patience and what needs to be eradicated now Certain elements of the bible that would otherwise provide greater context for the lessons that it teaches are ignored to serve a purposeThe sin of Onan as the townspeople are so readily able to pounce on top of is supposedly the sin of masturbation Unless you listen to the reverend you know the dude that does this shit for a living when he says that if you read than just the one sentence it s actually about greed and keeping familial wealth for oneself instead of doing the right thing and knocking up your dead brother s wife so she can have an heir I mean you can totally see where masturbation came from that right OoThis is the point and it snowballed to a terrifying effect that left Stuart and his friends ostracized from society and fearing for their lives A bit ridiculous but I loved the POINT EVIL kept trying to hit home What didn t work The voice and the kitsch wore thin on me after a while It got me all amped up in the beginning but how Carter developed it I don t think was sustainable in its current incarnation Enter Chester and it became almost unbearable He was supposed to be this uber dumb jock that Stuart had a crush on and at first his stupidity was almost kind of funny but the the joke wore on and the Stuart kept having to drag his sorry ass out of problems because he tried to save his own skin I just couldn t take it any And yet Stuart kept going back Chester almost gets them caught and killed yet Stuart won t leave him behind Chester was constantly concerned with himself and he never grew as a character as a result except for his final admittance to himself and Stuart at the end But Stuart still insisted on helping him time after time after time I m sorry and maybe this makes me an awful person but if someone causes me to get my ass toasted REPEATEDLY because they can t be bothered to think of anyone but themselves they re getting left behind Screw conscience and guilt There are only so many times a person can reasonably try before their self preservation kicks inAnd Carter had a bad habit of having Stuart think something and them immediately say that exact same thought out loud For instance Stuart would think that guy doesn t get what I m saying at all and then he would actually go and say to said person you don t get what I m saying at all do you Redundancies like that bother me and it looks like someone was struggling for word count with how often it happened And in the end It was an entertaining enough story but I m glad it wasn t longer than what it is The voice just ended up grating and I kept wishing for Chester to just light himself on fire for all he was worth so I wouldn t have been able to tolerable much than what was already on the pages I liked the allegory Carter set up with the misrepresentation of religion and how Stuart kept trying to find the truth in the world through a means many would otherwise find just a touch evil What I liked even was that EVIL didn t have a fairytale ending The end was definitely conclusive but it wasn t happy times for everyone so despite how unrealistic the plot was the ending grounded it a bit and ended up being just a little bit sad but it was satisfying The story came full circle and ended where it needed toI didn t feel preached to in the process Even though Carter was sending an otherwise obvious message it was done in jest with a light hearted tone that merely begged to ask why What is it about people that we let ourselves be manipulated by others instead of finding our own truths Why do we give in to mob mentality instead of thinking for ourselves I think if it weren t for Chester I would have enjoyed the book much but he was such a drain I just wish authors would deal with those characters realistically instead of idealizing the situation and making their main character out to be a humanitarian despite the fact that such altruistic moves would get someone killed faster than being struck by lightning while being eaten by a sharkBut yes it was enjoyable enough without being something to really write home about While EVIL is a mock of Christianity it strikes some good poses and asked some good uestions that really get you thinking

Stuart ist ein ganz normaler Teenager und zwar einer der sich hin und wieder gerne ein bisschen selbst befriedigt. Reviewed by Lauren Ashley for TeensReadToocomEVIL caught my interest right away because of how original the summary soundedA teen boy who is caught masturbating in the shower by his little brother is suddenly thrust into a horrific situation where the people of his town are out for his very life This confuses Stuart of course as he doesn t feel he s done anything wrong And after all the town pretty much accepted his being gay so what s the deal nowHowever the priest believes that Stuart is innocent of wrongdoing and agrees to help him figure out what s going on It isn t until Stuart confronts the demon Fon Pyre who he d been summoning for awhile in order to get some of his uestions about good and evil and heaven and hell answered that Stuart learns the truthFon Pyre reveals to them that it s a fallen angel who has caused the town s madness His uest to stop people from spilling has made the hatred overflow but if it gets any worse the demons are going to be able to crack through the thin barrier separating the two worlds and attack the people of the townSo why is an angel of all people so set on punishing Stuart and others like him Is Fon Pyre a truly evil being or can there be a fine line between good and evilEVIL is definitely a fun and amusing novel It s a fast read that keeps you flipping the pages I loved that Stuart seemed like a real person who had his own thoughts about things However that does t mean that he won t learn something in the overall scheme of thingsafter all how could you notI also liked that the paranormal aspect involved angels and demons but was very uniue in its own right It s nice to find something a bit different a bit odd it just worksI d definitely recommend giving it a read It might not be your thing but then again you just might like it What s the harm in giving it a try

    I can't get over just how poorly this book was written I read the synopsis online and thought what a terrific concept it would make; I still think it could have been a good book The problem lies in the terribly casual way that Carter approaches it The main character is as two dimensional as the minor characters and the dialogue is brief and u

    Yeah yeah I know Why on earth would I read this? I'd heard it was funny that's why And maybe it is if you're a 10 year old boyThe plot actually had promise Some fairly heavy themes were touched on and the events unfolded rapidly enough to hold a reader's interest But it just wasn't enoughStuart is a fairly bland
