Chaser: A Novel in E-Mails. Fourteen-year-old Chase Riley is online writing a heads-up newsletter to his old classmates in the big city of Columbus, Ohio. Chase is now living on a farm sixty miles away, so Chase's dad can have some peace and quiet to study and write after he comes home from his job at the lab. Peace and quiet are the buzzwords. Chase is feeling rebellious at having to be so far away from his friends, but his e-mails are still bright and funny. It is not that quiet, Chase tells his buddies.

Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 12 years ago. I used this with my 6th & 7th graders, but it's really a story that appeals broadly, to older readers as well. The e-mail are so inviting and disarming. This modern concept of a novel in E-mails works surprisingly well. The voice is fresh and upbeat, precocious and irreverent.

Humorous and heart-rending, this novel in e-mails will appeal to anyone who's seen their world turn upside-down - and managed to turn it back again.

Michael Rosen's "Sad Book" is such a book.

Michael Rosen's "Sad Book" is such a book. It chronicles Michael's grief at the death of his son Eddie from meningitis at the age of 19. A moving combination of sincerity and simplicity, it acknowledges that sadness is not always avoidable or reasonable and perfects the art of making complicated feelings plain. We're going on a bear hunt. We're going to catch a big one.

In Michael J. Rosen’s funny, provocative novel, a reluctant move to the heart of hunting country spurs a lonely teen’s obsession with e-mail and Top Ten lists—and a passion for animals that takes on a life of its own.Fourteen-year-old Chase Riley has just moved with his parents from Columbus, Ohio, to a farmhouse in the country. It’s only sixty miles from civilization as he knows it, but it may as well be on another planet. For starters, there’s the biblical plague of seventeen-year cicadas, making a collective noise as loud as a subway train. But that’s nothing compared to the awesome appearance of deer, everywhere, pausing majestically in the woods or, more often, tagged and strapped to hunters’ cars.A case of culture shock has Chase seeking refuge at his computer, blasting off droll commentary for hours on end to his sister at college and his buddies back in town. He’s promised his parents he will MAKE AN EFFORT, but it’s hard to find friends in a place where everyone’s eager to go out and shoot something. The only consolation is watching his dogs run free on their rural acres—until a freak accident changes everything. And that’s when Chase begins devising The Plan.

How dissapointing! The last 3 pages are torn out of the book! Can't believe that someone would sell a book like that without mentioning it, but describe it "as new"! Cover was dirty as well.

It is August 10th. Fourteen-year-old Chase Riley is online writing a heads-up newsletter to his old classmates in the big city of Columbus, Ohio. Chase is now living on a farm sixty miles away, so Chase's dad can have some peace and quiet to study and write after he comes home from his job at the lab. Peace and quiet are the buzzwords. Chase is feeling rebellious at having to be so far away from his friends, but his e-mails are still bright and funny.
It is not that quiet, Chase tells his buddies. The Cicadas in the daytime and the bullfrogs at night make ear-splitting noises. Is this what adults call "the joy of country living?" He knows that his two dogs are in heaven, free to run loose and chase anything that excites them. Unfortunately, they are also learning about skunks and tomato juice baths --- a bitter lesson. Even Chase smelled of skunk for awhile!
Then there is the matter of making new friends. Chase keeps to himself when school starts and spends his time writing e-mails to his newsletter group and his sister, Mallory, at Kent State. He doesn't seem to be settling in to his new school environment, and the school guidance counselor is becoming worried. For Chase, writing e-mails has taken the place of forming friendships.
I hope that most young readers will find the main character, Chase Riley, cool. He is an amazingly talented fourteen-year-old with obvious gifts in writing and computer literacy. His intelligence, fierce independence, and wry humor will help him to handle the adjustment of leaving the city for the country, making new friends, and coping with the other events in life's journey.

Here we are, Chase Riley (e-mail alias ChaseR), 14, moves 60 miles away from hometown Colombus to live hours from who-knows-where & five minutes from your neighbors (I'm five seconds away, if you're slow). His 90-acre land is being plagues by cicadias, mammoth bugs that come out once every 17 years. His e-mails to friends are often halarious, &, with Rosen's good writing skills, you, the reader, can easily dictate what life is like in the Riley house.
I have to admit, some of his newletters (letters in newspaper-like form to a wide selection of addresses) are HALARIOUS!!! I'm just wondering is that BEAVER CREEK BEACON stuff is true.
Although some of the stuff is funny, the actual plot isn't very exciting. I don't know how much more exciting it could get, given that the book was written in e-mails. That, however doesn't take away from the book's overall good-ness. (in my opinion)
Among other things, you can learn cool smileys.

If you've ever looked at the "Snail-Mail No More" book(s, I think), & thought that it was a good idea, DON'T pick it up. Yeah, sure it LOOKS cool, but, to the males of this earth, MAKE THIS THE ALTERNATIVE! ( note: surere, girls can read this, too.
Whether you've read all of my blabber or not, BUY THIS BOOK!!!!

This was a great read.
Using an unusual but effective narrative style, Rosen captures, in a series of emails, his characters and settings perfectly. From the way people in the rural midwest wave by lifting one finger off the steering wheel to the sudden and shocking blast of a 12-guage shotgun, the details make this book engagingly real.
Having moved from the city to the country, Chase's entire world changes. Where he once had friends, he now has only thousands of ciacadas (the emoticon representing the cicadas is the worth the cost of the book in and of itself). But what bothers him most about his new life is the hunting that goes on, particularly after one of his dogs is shot. The hunting debate becomes the central issue of the story, and Rosen explores it with tremendous wit and heart, asking all the right questions and never offering easy answers.
With complex and charming characters, a fascinating issue explored with great sensitivity, and some of the funniest emoticons I've ever seen, this one will grab your interest--and keep it.
