If you compare it to Sol Yorick's "The Warriors" it a must better book, because the writing is better and, unlike "The Warriors" you actually like these people.

Richard Price can capture the feel of a community and its inhabitants like nobody else; I completely believe and inhabit the worlds he's describing

Richard Price can capture the feel of a community and its inhabitants like nobody else; I completely believe and inhabit the worlds he's describing. While I was not a 16 year old boy coming of age in the Bronx in 1962, I feel like Price has captured it perfectly. Each chapter focuses on a different member of the "gang" and almost stands alone, but there's a cohesion and an overall arc as well, so it's not just a collection of short stories.

I liked the book, it had very real characters and the storyline was quite believable. I'd have given it 5 stars except the electronic copy was terrible. The spelling and punctuation were horrible. Sometimes I couldn't even determine what a sentence or comment was supposed to convey. In short, the proofreading of the electronic copy was nonexistent. I read the paperback quite a few years ago and it was flawless, so the manuscript is not at fault.

This is for the kindle edition. There were a lot of misprints. Generally I could figure them out from the context, but nevertheless they were there. This book was okay, but really seemed to lack any real storyline. Kind of an American Graffiti without cars, but with more swearing and fighting. Three stars seemed about right to me.

I read this book when it first came out and loved it. I was 16 or 17 at the time. My small town could only support 5 or 6 "juvenile delinquents" ( I was one of them) so we didn't have enough manpower for a gang, but everything else rang true. Stumbling around trying to be suave and cool without a clue. Trying desperately to get laid. Being scared of being scared. In my opinion way more real than the overated "Catcher".

I enjoyed rereading it and it held up well. However, only gave it 4 stars because I think some parts have been edited out. I know I've killed a lot of brain cells since then but I remember at least two more story lines.

I read "The Wanderers" when it first came out years ago. Still a great story. But, too many typos. I find that irritating, especially in a book that is over 40 years old, and still costs $9.99. Hire a good proof-reader!

His first novel-the one that put him on the map. An excellent read that captures the feel of what it was like growing up in the Bronx at that time. As a schoolmate of Richard Price during that time, I can attest to the validity of his descriptions of life in the Bronx for a teenager at that time.

I don't know why, but I keep coming back to this book. I agree with a lot of the criticisms, it does lack form and it may just be a collection of short stories. But the characters are so compelling and the writing is so clean. There is nothing in American literature like the opening scene of this book.

What Richard Price did here is extraordinary. If you compare it to Sol Yorick's "The Warriors" it a must better book, because the writing is better and, unlike "The Warriors" you actually like these people.

After reading Richard Price's absolutely outstanding novel "Clockers," I expected a lot more from this "novel," which really isn't a novel. It has 12 chapters, each of which is a separate story involving some characters from another chapter. I didn't see the movie, but this book just didn't work for me.
The setting is New York in the '60s. The Wanderers are a street gang, one which street gangs today would eat for lunch. Is it a coming-of-age story? Yes. It is dated? Yes, but in a good way. The kids all come from a gloomy neighborhood and family life, but the story has a lot of honesty in it. Price doesn't glamorize the characters. And that they are portrayed as wimpy compared to the gangs today is further testament to Price staying true to his own brand of story as opposed to falling into a cliche-ridden tale full of macho characters.
Nearly all of these characters could be you or someone you know, kids from the wrong side of the tracks growing up in a more innocent time.
Price did a good job showing what we all know as adults: nothing lasts forever, even your "friends till the end." But the disconnected 12 chapters read more like an outline than a fleshed-out novel. No doubt about it: Price can really write. It just doesn't show as much in this novel as it did in "Clockers." If I buy another book by Price, I will have to consider which one very carefully. If I knew it were anything remotely as good as "Clockers," I'd buy it. If it were written like this one, I wouldn't.
First i have to say i knew the movie first and loved it, this book is nothing like the movie and so depressing its brutal to read i will say that it is written well though.
