J'ai vraiment aimé ce livre. Les suivis de la série (Magic Study et Fire Study) ont également été de bonnes lectures mais j'ai apprécié celui-ci le plus. L'auteur a fait un travail formidable pour m'attirer dans le monde de Yelena.
I have just finished reading Dirty Little Angels and found it to be pretty readable and even nicely written in parts (although some metaphors are over used - are there really so many people in New Orleans with a rats' nest for hair?). The story centers on Hailey (16 year old girl) and her older brother, getting themselves into trouble while their self absorbed parents are looking the other way. I would recommend this title as a good one for older teens who are reluctant readers, as it's short and easy to identify with the teenage protagonists. There is violence and some fairly negative sexual experiences(probably fairly realistic for sixteen year olds with poor self esteem!) but nothing I would have a problem with my own 15 year old reading.
This book suggests that the use of literary criticism has misled biblical scholars. J. Dunn challenges us to think first in an oral context. He uses Ken Bailey to overturn hundreds of years of misleading scholarship so that we see the whole bible functioning in world where the word was heard. It is encouraging of high view of scripture but takes seriously further scholarly study that is more sensitive to Near Eastern culture. I found it helpful in sermon preparation and in talking with people in a cynical time.
