Thank you Netgalley and Grand Central Publishing for gifting me an E-ARC in exchange of an honest review.
I give this book a 2.5 out of 5 Stars.
First off, I appreciate the ending, I think it was a really great concept, and the way things unraveled, albeit very weird, it was very unique. As far as what I didn’t like, it was far too long, and far to slow paced for my liking. (In my opinion) I think this book could have been about 300 pages, and it would have been the perfect length. As my friend Savannah has said, “I can only read about peeing pants, and bloody noses so much” I’d have to say I agree. But everything else that I didn’t enjoy about this book, I cannot speak of, because it’s would ruin everything. I appreciate what the Author tried to accomplish with this book, and the message he is trying to convey. It’s just not for me.
I’ve read this will be a great book for fans of NOS4A2 Fans, and since I didn’t read that book, I cannot compare. I am so sad I didn’t love this, as The Perks Of Being A Wallflower is one of my favorite books of all-time. But I do understand that Chbosky was targeting a different audience this time. I will say, Chbosky’s creative mind shows through in this book and his writing. This was an insanely WEIRD read, and it took someone very unique to write it.
This book is out Oct. 1st. I will put Goodreads link below.
