Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp, Book 1

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
December 2008
8 hours 21 minutes
This hilarious, take-no-prisoners novel about a cynical, sex-obsessed teenager's pining love for an intelligent girl is now a major motion picture from Dimension Films starring Michael Cera.

Youth in Revolt brings us the journals of Nick Twisp, California's most precocious diarist, whose ongoing struggles to make sense out of high school, deal with his divorced parents, and lose his virginity result in his transformation from an unassuming fourteen-year-old to a modern youth in open revolt. As his family splinters, worlds collide, and the police block all routes out of town, Nick must cope with economic deprivation, homelessness, the gulag of the public schools, a competitive Type-A father, murderous canines (in triplicate), and an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response—all the while vying ardently for the affections of the beauteous Sheeni Saunders, teenage goddess and ultimate intellectual goad.

If you are an adult looking for a "nice" book to get for your son/daughter/grand-kids, pass on this one, or, preview the first two discs before presenting them with this book. This book is optimally suited for young boys between, say, 11 and 14, who are just discovering girls. The story is well written and very well narrated, but there are a lot of "self-servicing" references and graphic/colorful descriptions of these activities. (Far too much attention to the male anatomy...and what to do with it.) But, when you are a young male in the transition period, these events are quite prominent in your life. Maybe if I were of that age again, this would be a great story, but when I was 11, this book would have been printed in an underground press and sold in a plain-brown wrapper. I'm still going to give this one a 4 because it is well written and well read by the narrator...I'm just too old for it now...and quite happy that I am! :-)
