    1. A gritty, uncomfortable journey down all the wrong paths While I know that the main character was often numbed by drugs, it was a very emotionless read, and when an author is delving into such raw grit without emotion, it comes across as a cheap attempt for shock factors There was no character development except perhaps negatively , no consequences for the worse characters, and no defined ending It was a quick read, but I can t say that I learned anything or took anything away with me from readi [...]


    2. So from mainstream to subversion and this works very well.The book is told in three sections each with a different name of the main protagnist Christy, Sugar and Veronica.Christy is a 18 year old student on her last day at school, tripping out on acid at the family table.She is thinking of the future a job is a shop or working as a stripper at her boyfriends club, where she metamorphes into Sugar after surviving a car crash that kills her sister.Sugar gets the attention of her other sisters husb [...]


    3. The premise of this book had great promise however, it reads like an outline or a sketch of what could have been a great novel There are huge plot holes and barely any character development whatsoever.


    4. this book was given to me as a gift i probably wouldn t have read it otherwise it may not be what i would consider a classic but i enjoyed it i read it sprawled out on my bed, listening to loud music in the end, i think my content mood had a lot to do with how i feel about this.i might have liked it but the ending seemed abrupt and unfinished to me all the characters are a bit on the extreme side which makes the struggles of the main character seem not as dramatic as they would otherwise things [...]


    5. So, I think the total amount of times that I ve read this book must exceed seven or so, by now I remember every word, every sensation, every nuance of our main character to the T I feel as if I have lived inside her bones and have paraded her sorrow around town for all to mourn for me, while vicariously I have become numb in my own ineptitude toward emotion I picked this up when I lived in Tennesee, supposedly Hollis Hampton Jones lived in Tennesee when she wrote it, and it is just pure filth Th [...]


    6. A gritty raw story that leaves you wondering if there will ever be a happy ending for the character The story takes place in a very surreal world of a girl who is adrift in the world through a haze of drugs, alcohol, grief and sex The pacing is extremely fast pace like most downward spirals are and I liked that about the story.Was there a plot I m thinking that this was of a snapshot into someone s life, than a complete story, and we are left wondering will she go back dancing for her brother i [...]


    7. I wanted so much from this main character, but it seemed like she was just stuck being this one dimensional person It s a coming of age story, but somehow the first person narrative left our main character very predictable The secondary characters seemed far interesting than the one we were given unfortunately And although there were some intriguing quotes, there was nothing to really add to them later on The whole last section of the book just left me thinking, So what Apparently, I stopped c [...]


    8. Christy is an amoral, apathetic, drug pushing stripper, searching for some sort of tangible guidepost to show her what s meaningful and right Vicious Spring depicts her graphic and tragic search for that meaning The book serves as an incredibly realistic allegory of modernity s erasure of any semblance of real Hampton Jones has put together a pitch perfect portrayal of what goes wrong when relationships lose meaning, society decays, and sex is cheap Christy s final realization is hopeful and spo [...]


    9. What a F up story Every second kept me wanting Hampton Jones knows how to wrap you up in the drug addicted, dance club stripping, family abandoning life of a nineteen year old This was almost a complete home run I hated the ending , and as good as it was, this authors only piece That, aside from the ending, is my only disappointment.
