    1 thought on “Martyn Pig”

    1. Kevin Brooks! How does your mind work? That question remains, even though I am not as shell shocked as after reading The Bunker Diary, and felt the strong urge to try something else by Brooks. Martyn Pig conveniently fell into my hands. Well, it doesn't leave me raving in the same way. It is a good teenage book about mystery, guilt, and growing up, but where The Bunker Diary showed a complete micro cosmos of a brutal world, Martyn Pig just plays on bizarre choices and strange turns.It is very we [...]

    2. Martyn Pig is about a young teenage boy (17 years old) named Martyn Pig who is very lonely and isolated from the world.He is the only child who lives with a single parent, and usually that parent is the mom. But for Martyn it's the opposite.Martyn's mother died, and because of this he had to live with his father.But there is a twist to this,and that is that Martyn thinks his father is a drunk moron. He doesn't care about Martyn and he is abusive.Martyn wakes up every day to bear cans and cigaret [...]

    3. WHAT THE HELL! I had to read this book for school! FOR SCHOOLSchool: school is an institution designed for the teaching of students (or "pupils") under the direction of teachers.So why the hell are they teaching me that MURDER is NOT something BAD if you don't get caught?! WHAT THE HELL SERIOUSLY!!I mean many books are not the best influence but for someone to write a book for TEENS and show them how other TEENS of their same age murder other people in cold blood and have no regrets at all becau [...]

    4. There's a new GCSE specification in English next year and this is one of the possible texts to study. I wouldn't usually read this kid of novel for pleasure because it's aimed at teenagers. Regardless, I'll judge it on its own merits.Basically, the characters seem to me to be a collection of cliches in modern teen fiction: alcoholic father, female friend who doesn't see the protagonist 'in that way', older boyfriend of female character with no redeemable features, single mother, strict aunt. Unt [...]

    5. This fifteen year old faces a miserable life: his mother deserted the family because his father is a violent, miserable alcoholic living on the dole. His only other relative is a dictatorial, judgmental aunt. He is forced to keep house and cook for his father and take his father’s emotional and physical abuse. Then when his father attacks him in a jealous rage, Martyn shoves him in self defense, resulting in his father’s death. The story deals with the consequences of not reporting what happ [...]

    6. خب برای شروع باید بگم که این کتاب واقعا منو شوکه کرد. در جریان این کتاب به جملاتی جالب توجه برخوردم و نویسنده پایانی زیبا به کار خود داده بودمارتین ماجرای خودش رو با توضیح دادن در مورد اسم و فامیلش و این که چطور به خاطر اون مورد تمسخر دیگران قرار می گیره آغاز می کنه ولی این در بر [...]

    7. Martyn is a mystery-junkie, so it didn't surprise me that the book had double-crosses and betrayals. Martyn himself seemed more believable than the other characters, who just seemed to be stock mystery "types".And then I was disappointed with the editing: 999 is the emergency number in England, not 911! I hope they caught that before it went to final print.

    8. plot:Martyn Pig is a book about lying, stealing, and killing. The book is named after its main character, Martyn. He is a socially awkward teen with a drunken father. Near Christmas, Martyn and his father get into an argument and his dad attacks him. Martyn ducks, sending his father into a wall by accident. The impact kills his father and Martyn does not know what to do. He heads up to his dad's room and discovers checks for 30,000 pounds. When he sees his ultimate plan, Martyn goes to see his f [...]

    9. Well, it kept my interest long enough to finish it, I guess that's something. It had a few twists and surprises here and there, not the least of which was Alex, the most interesting of the characters. If she hadn't been studying acting, her turnaround would not have been believable, but she was and good at it. I can understand Martyn's total lack of moral character -- look who he had as a model. The rest of the characters are pretty flat, which is only slightly acceptable because Martyn is telli [...]

    10. Los cuatro libros de Kevin Brooks que he leído, me han encantado. Es perfecto. Merece más reconocimiento. Martyn Pig mata a su padre, un borracho que odia. No lo hace apropósito, es un accidente. Sólo le cuenta a Alex, su amiga. Y en todo el libro se narran los problemas que tienen con la policía y para deshacerse del cuerpo. No puedo decir más porque diría el final.Kevin Brooks sabe crear los personajes, cada uno tiene ideas diferentes, y una historia que los hace estar donde están. Los [...]

    11. This is a book with more twists and turns - it will leave you stunned. In the novel, Martyn accidentally causes his father's death. he knows he doesn't want to get put into the foster care system, so he decides to try to hide that he's alone. Unfortunately, things go from bad to strange to worse? I had a class of "hate-to-read" students read this book and everyone was thoroughly engaged.

    12. Martyn Pig a teenager living with a father that is drunk and mean. One day Martyn accidentality killed his father now the boy is running away. From cops and himself. I recommend this books because it teaches us about our seleves like Martyn he hates his dad and now his dad is dead. So it show us what we really want, the darker side of our sevles it's kind of strange in a way.

    13. Excellent murder mystery aimed at the YA/teen audience.I absolutely adore Brooks' style of writing. It's witty, quirky, intelligent, moving, sad. He is fast becoming one of my all-time favourite authors, he's already my favourite YA author. Everyone should go check him out.

    14. Martyn's father is a fall-down drunk. One day he falls down, hits his head, and dies. Rather than live with his dreadful aunt, Martyn decides to cover up the death of his father. There are many twists ad turns along the way, as in any good mystery.

    15. I was completely swept away by this. Very well written.Re-read January 2004, shortlisted for Lancashire Children's Book of the Year.

    16. "Did I hate him? He was a drunken slob and he treated me like dirt. What do you think? Of course I hated him, but I never meant to kill him." This is a quote from the novel Martyn Pig. This book was prodigious. The twisting and turning of events, and how you it tells you all of Martyn's thoughts was amazing. This book is unlike any other murder mystery I've ever read. Not just that it's realistic, but it's not one of those book where the character is a detective or the murderer and their trying [...]

    17. This had a lot of potential to be much better than it actually was. I've only read one of Kevin Brooks' novels before, the desolate yet enthralling "The Bunker Diary", which is one of my favorite books I've read in a while. So understandably, I had somewhat high expectations for this, despite the fact that this book is much, much older than "The Bunker Diary." I was quite let down.I was kind of hooked at the start of this. Kevin Brooks has this way of writing that makes you feel like you are on [...]

    18. This novel by Kevin Brooks, introduces fourteen year old Martyn who struggles during his horrible daily life. His mother died and he lives with an alcoholic father who is not able to take care of him. Even worse, his father is a belligerent, abusive alcoholic. It seems like his life can not get any worse. However, it gets much worse when one day his drunk father starts a fight and Martyn accidentally kills him. Now Martyn has a terrible choice to confront reality, call the police and go live wit [...]

    19. A short but moderately interesting read. Martyn Pig is the main character (what a name) and being a Kevin Brooks book, it's a bit like his other titles. Dysfunctional family once again, his father's a drunk, life's not great, no friends, just accidentally killed his dad - Wait what he accidentally killed his dad?And in a similar way to a character death from the last book I just read, too.Yes, his father is drunk and he loses his temper and tries to hit his son and Martyn has had enough of this [...]

    20. Personalmente este libro Debut como autor de el gran Kevin Brooks y en mi opinión descendiente de Arthur Conan Doyle a su manera, nos presenta la historia de Martyn Pig un muchacho de 14 años cuyo nombre es bastante inusual y esto le causa muchísimo conflicto social y personal, su padre es un borracho de 24 hrs y su madre los abandono cuando el era muy pequeño. La historia de desarrolla en la víspera navideña, en un comprensible accidente en casa el padre de Martyn muere poco después lleg [...]

    21. Ši knyga nėra pats stipriausias autoriaus kūrinys , jei lyginant su visomis , kitomis gal net pats prasčiausias . Kaip jau įprasta vaizduojama netradicinė šeima , keistuolis paauglys ir žinoma tada prasideda detektyvas / trileris . Istorijos mintis be abejo nenuvalkiota ir unikali , tik jos pasakojimas neišpildytas iki galo , vietomis pernelyg neįtikinamas , vaiko motyvai pernelyg silpni ir aplamai neaišku ar autorius bando paversti jį blogiuku ar vis dėlto reikėtų jį užjausti . [...]

    22. I am a Y11 student and our teacher made us read this. It was an amazing read. Loads of twist and turns. I loved all the characters, not necessarily because they are kind and nice--but because they have their fates. I think this book is so clearly constructed and the author is quite a odd thinker lol.(no offense)I kinds of suspected Alex when Martyn is not feeling right, but I never thought that she REALLY did it. Anyways highly recommended!!! I just told my parents the plot and they were shocked [...]

    23. I liked Martyn because it has a lot of tension and there were jokes too. At first the book is a bit boring but after his father’s dead it becomes a very nice book. I decided to read this book because the author has written a very exciting text on the back of the book. So the story is very good but some things in the book are a bit indistinct and that’s why I give it three stars instead of four stars. But if you like thrillers I can really recommend this book!
