    This story is set in Helen Springs, a fictional town in Idaho USA.This is a super journey back into the 90’s to remember the era as a teenager or as a parent, either way you will do it with cringes and giggles as you recognise so many familiar scenes and scenarios.Jason is really a young man on the brink of coming of age. The time when decisions have to be made whether to stay on at school, to follow in the foot steps of his successful older brother, knowing he hasn’t a cat in hell’s chanc [...]

    I can’t shake the feeling that I’m way in over my head! Shawn Hartje has gifted me with the most rousing and refreshing book I have read in a long time. Pipeliner is nothing I have read in a very long time, and it restored and reinforced my deep love for books and the written word.Pipeliner follows Jason Krabb, a young seventeen-year-old man, with a severe case of youth rebellion running through his veins. He is rebelling against his parent’s high expectations for his future. He is struggl [...]

    As a woman, I know what puberty is like on the feminine side of the fence. Of course, I've heard about the other side, with its wet dreams and awkward spurts of hormonal confusion. Thanks to Pipeliner, I'm one of few women who can honestly say that they have gone through both sides. When Hartje sets out to write a coming of age story, his goal is to do so in every sense of the word.At first, I was a bit put off by Jason's poignant pecker preoccupation. I actually wrote a note to myself that "I'm [...]

    Jason was such a complex and developed character. Granted, he was still an average teenage boy from that era, but the author painted such an in-depth picture of Jason that I felt like he was my own son by the time I finished reading. Well, that, or like tons of people that I knew in high school, lol. He wanted freedom, he wanted to party with his friends, he wanted to lose his virginity, he wanted to experiment with drugs, but most of all, he wanted to play guitar, sing, and write lyrics. His in [...]

    Pipeliner by Shawn Hartje Sex, drugs and rock and roll. Every wannabe rock star has had this vision for their lives, but never was it more prominent than in the 90's. For Jason Krabb, that dream dominated his small town Idaho life, as evidence by the coming of age tale Pipeliner by Shawn Hartje. Here is the synopsis:DescriptionFor seventeen-year-old Jason Krabb, high school life in 1990s Idaho is a world of cargo shorts, cassette tapes, and junk food. Plagued equally by algebra and puberty, Jaso [...]

    ★ ★ 1/2 (rounded up)This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.---I just don't know what to say about this one. It's a coming-of-age story about a young man in the 1990's growing up in (what I believe is) a fictionalized Idaho Falls, Idaho. It's arguable how much Jason Krabb actually comes of age here -- you could make a pretty decent case that he regresses throughout the book. Jason's main goal in life is to become a rock star in Portland, OR or Seattle, WA -- along the way, he'd [...]

    What is a pipeliner? A pipeliner is a person who lays pipe along with other members of his team to transport gas to far away cities. Jason Krabb, a seventeen year old kid who has lost the direction in his life since the local swim team (of which he was the star) had to be disbanded, finds the pipeliners who are working near his town to be incredibly cool. He is torn between finishing high school or skipping his senior year and laying pipe. If he makes money laying pipe, his plans to be a rock st [...]

    Jason´s life in the start of this book was absolutely directionless, he wasn´t doing so good at school and he only cared about his music and his guitar. As the synopsis of he book says, this books sets at 1990 and we have Jason Krabb who´s a student of high school and like any other kid, he has a dream of becoming something else than what everyone tells him to be. I must say the author did a pretty good job with the writing, because you felt like you were in those times, he transported me to [...]

    If you grew up in the 90s, there is much in the book that will make you laugh. Jason's character is of someone you know. The complexity of a high school boys emotions is intertwined with the immaturity of a high school boys emotions, which is hilarious. A page turner.

    Rabid Readers Reviews
    Jason Krabb is having a pretty typical high schooler experience but like all of us at the time, he thinks of himself as a unique little island of humanity looking for the people who will know his soul…his fellow musicians. Jason is stuck in a life where he doesn’t feel he belongs (again, like all of us that the time). He has kind of a nebulous idea of where he wants to end up, boning up on artists that he might be expected to know should he actually make it to Portland/Seattle where he expec [...]

    On the cusp of becoming a man, Jason is directionless in his life. He has below average grades and only seems to really care about playing his guitar. Although Jason's parents think he can never live up to his intelligent brother's standards, he will impress them with his dedication to his guitar. After attending a bonfire and meeting Betsy, Allen and bunch of older guys who work as pipeliners, Jason has a new direction. What follows is a whirlwind summer of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Jason [...]

    Witty, a fun read.

    The teenage experience seems to be pretty universally filled with hormonal desire and a yearning to find one's path in life.

    ** I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review**This book is a good example, of why I would like to rate books a 3.5. I think the author did a good job developing his main character. It is obvious what he feels. I kinda believe the author may have drawn on his own life experiences. I think the dialog and plot development are good. I think this is a decent first novel and I believe the author will only get better. The only reason I did not rate this a 4 had to do with momentum. Like I [...]
