In 1988, a catastrophic episode of teen violence shatters a suburban community. Hey Nostradamus follows the aftermath in various voices across two decades: the teenage victims whose ordinary preoccupations with sex and spirituality will never evolve past that moment; the parents whose exposure to their children's underground world threatens their deepest convictions; and those who come to know the survivors only later in life, unable to fully realize what really transpired. Hey Nostradamus wrestles with religion and nihilism, sorrow and acceptance. It will take you to a place you didn't know existed.

    " A sad story. A story of grief, love and finding faith. Some of the words are kind of hard to understand. But i survived. "

    " The ending is a little odd and a little confusing but a very enjoyable read all the same. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren | 2/27/2011

    " It seemed like a good idea, but the writing was just so empty. Every time I picked up the book I could only read a few pages before growing so frustrated that I had to put it down again. I've left this unfinished with no intention of trying again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trashpalace | 12/6/2010

    " Coupland è uno dei miei imprescindibili, quindi non sempre sono obiettivo. Questo comunque è il mio preferito. Un tema delicato (gli school shooting americani), un libro di un'umanità sconfinata. Forget "We Need to Talk about Kevin"!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 B. Lynn | 11/12/2010

    " Even better listening to this the second time. "
