    One thought on “The Ryer Avenue Story”

    1. I have read this book 3-4 times. I list it as currently-reading because I am rereading it now. It is a memoir-like story of a group of young people similar to the author, Dorothy Uhnak, and her friends growing up in the Bronx. I found it just as I was beginning a 3 year long project in Region 1 of the New York City Public Schools.Uhnak was a police officer who began writing policy mysteries at the end of her police career. She turned into a professional writer, winning some awards as a mystery w [...]

    2. A lengthy saga spanning 40 years of kids growing up on Ryer Avenue. That happens to be my old neighborhood but taking place 15 years earlier than my time on Ryer Avenue. Six kids grow up and all their lives take different direction but all interesting.i really enjoyed it and it could have gone on further and I would have been content to continue reading.

    3. I read this about 20 years ago and it was brilliant. Some of the best characters I have ever encountered. Now it's out of print and I can't find it. Would LOVE to read it again.

    4. I picked this book up at a tag sale in the Northwest Territories of Canada, and if you ever find it - be for a Canadian quarter or 30 times that sum - pick it up. The lives of many different characters are interwoven around a single event. Though I normally don't enjoy books that progress to where we see the characters over the course of decades, the storylines are fascinating and you don't get the "jumpiness" that you do of certain books that try this technique.

    5. This is one of those books with, like, eight main characters and stories that intertwine in an interesting way. Basically, eight kids did something really, really bad, and then they grow up and become giants in their fields, but things come back to haunt them…Yes, I quite liked it, and the ending was great.

    6. Too many characters to remember and to become part of it just takes a lot of your mind to recall who was this who was thatd the story of the past last for the first 250-300 pages To be honest I didn't get to the actual story in this book which should have been the last hundred pages.

    7. I loved this when I read it a million years ago, but when I tried to re-read it recently, I couldn't get into it. Maybe one of those books that simply doesn't beg to be re-read?
