What comes to mind when I say “S.E. Hinton”? The Outsiders. Pony Boy. “Nothing gold can stay.” Maybe Rumble Fish. Or Matt Dillon.

But what about…vampires?

After Susan (!) E. Hinton’s iconic books, The Outsiders (1967), That Was Then, This is Now (1971), and Rumble Fish (1975), she kept writing. And one of the novels she wrote, in 2004, was Hawkes Harbor.

I listened to this book on CD. After the first disc, I thought I’d be listening to the tale of a troubled young man, very similar to those titles I just mentioned. We get a glimpse of Jamie Sommers’ childhood, then his wild times as a sailor and smuggler. We know he has gotten into trouble because he’s telling all this to a psychiatrist in a mental institution.

However, on disc two, things get weird. The book becomes a classic tale of…boy meets vampire.

TL;DR ***SPOILER ALERT*** Boy meets vampire. Vampire enslaves boy. Boy goes crazy. Vampire commits boy to asylum. Both boy and vampire are cured. They become besties and live happily ever after.

WHAT the WHAT???

First of all, vampire gets cured? I had to make sure I hadn’t skipped a disc when this just casually came up. While Jamie is “away,” the vampire somehow meets AND IS CURED BY a doctor/historian named Louisa.

So the relationship of SLAVE to MASTER becomes just another friendly employer/employee, roommates in a big, haunted house kind of thing, with a casual mention of Stockholm syndrome. No big deal, right? The two men even go on a cruise together, where they both find romantic and sexual adventure.

My only way of processing this is to think that Ms. Hinton was somehow, consciously or unconsciously, writing an allegory about child abuse. Our vampire, Grenville Hawkes, is the abusive parent, and Jamie the child. Jamie is absolutely traumatized by Grenville’s abuse, is helpless to escape it, and therefore copes as best he can. However, when Grenville “reforms,” Jamie gradually comes to trust him, and they have a mutually respectful relationship. Is this possible in formerly abusive parent/child relationships? I don’t know if it’s common, but I’ve heard of it in my own extended family.

The attempt falls flat, though. Too much telling, not showing, especially about important relationships. For example, you can never tell if Louisa’s attitude toward Jamie on a given day will be bossy or fond. No real development happens for her, she just shifts personalities as needed for each scene.

So anyway, if you want to read a vampire tale that does not have sparkly skin or werewolves, but does have male bonding on a cruise ship, give it a try. It may be the weirdest book you’ve read all year.

From my perspective, Hawkes Harbor could essentially be described as a re-telling of (or a story inspired by) the gothic television soap opera "Dark Shadows" storyline (1966-1971). Where "Dark Shadows" was told from the perspective of the governess Victoria Winters, Hawkes Harbor is told from the perspective of Jamie Sommers (i.e., in the series, Willie Loomis) who was bitten by the vampire Grenville Hawkes (in the series, Barnabas Collins). The appeal to Dark Shadows fans is imagining how Willie ended up coming to Collinsport (Hawkes Harbor) in the first place and, later, what might have happened to him and Barnabas, after the series ended in 1971. As a Dark Shadows fan, overall, I enjoyed reading Hawkes Harbor; knowing the relationship between the characters Willie Loomis and Barnabas made the ending of Hawkes Harbor a moving and unexpected one.

This one was just...odd. I don't even know where to begin to explain it. The plot was all over the place. The story would begin to take form, and then it would change direction completely. And then....vampires?? That didn't seem to even fit in with the rest of the novel. I really don't know what S.E. Hinton was trying to accomplish with this story. There were parts that were well-written, but the book as a whole was just a mess. ( )

The book, Hawkes Harbor, is one of the most confusing books I’ve ever read. It had lack of detail and it didn’t even make that much sense! For instance, the main character, Jamie Sommers, was in a car one chapter, then in the next chapter, he was on a cruise! The author, S.E. Hinton (The author of The Outsiders), at least made Hawkes Harbor a descent book, but it skips a couple details out of nowhere!

It's not that I didn't like it -- it was just okay. "The Outsiders" was one of my all-time favorite books, so I thought another of her's would be good. Don't bother with this one :-( ( )
