This novel got me. Yes, it got me. This novel touched so many emotions of mine, some of which I didn’t know I had. To me the overall idea of it was uplifting, and made me want to reevaluate my life, and how I see myself and others around me. To me the whole premise of the novel was to live life the way you want to, find true love and go after it no matter what the consequences may be. To truly let your heart be opened even if you think it might be shattered. What I also really enjoyed was that there was a story within a story, with the one that she was reading, and the one that was going on in her life, and the similarities that came about. The amount of tears I had reading this was ridiculous. It has been a long time since a novel effected me as much as this one did. Well that’s kind of true. The Five People You Meet in Heaven also made me think about life to its core. John Green did a fantastic job with this, and I can’t wait to read more of his work. I just recently got Looking for Alaska and I cannot wait to read that either. If you can’t tell, of course I recommend this novel. I would read it again if I felt like I can take the emotional tole of it, but I don’t think that I can. Until next time,
So, Larry’s Girls by Thomas Green Jr. was an interesting book. This was this year’s gag gift from my mother, and what a gag it was. We all know how much I love reading and she said she bought this book to “Help a brotha out”. After reading this book I can see that he is going to need all the help he can get. It was not just the typos, repeated paragraphs and pages, run on sentences, and all around mess of the book that made it bad. It was the “story” line. When the author described it to my mother he said that it was book that would suit a college educated woman due to the fact that it is set in a college scene. Well, I don’t know how many college educated women that he has talked to, but this was not suitable.
