Just a book fool.
This is not your run of the mill angel story not even a little bit. This one will surprise you and gross you out simultaneously. Virtually no romance so if you are looking for that you might have to wait for the sequel. However, if you are looking for adventure this is your stop. Hang on it's going to be a wild ride.
Easy is one HOTT read. Nothing super spectacular and I honestly didn't buy the "conflict" of the two main characters having a relationship. I 100% saw every "surprise" coming but you know what I did not care.
This book was enjoyable, sexy, and down right entertaining.
Alright if your looking for a YA "Paranormal Romance" LOOK NO FURTHER! This my friends is the first truly original story in said category I have seen in quite some time.
The narrator tipped this one right off the edge of good to great. She manages three separate accents and two languages without missing a beat. Too often the narrator is a distraction but in this case she is a gem.
This book is no literary genius and won't have you pondering life and the human condition BUT it will be fun and oh so romantic.
I recommend Die for Me to anyone looking for a good time.
Making the world better one review at a time.
I had a little trouble getting into this book at first (hence the four stars), but once I did I was swept away by it. I even won a "weekend warrior" badge for spending all day Saturday listening to it!
How does this book make the world a better place? It will remind you of how precious life is. Hazel and Augustus, the teenage protagonists who are battling terminal cancer, live more life in their short months together than many people live in years. Their diagnoses urge them on instead of holding them back. They appreciate the fragilitiy of life in a way that we all should, but only those touched by illness often do. Together they experience friendship, love, adventure, loss and ultimately death. Listen to this book and think of the people who are precious to you, then call them and tell them you love them. It's the kind of book that inspires you to do that.
ADDED BONUS!! At the end of the audiobook you get to listen to an interview with author John Green. Green talks about the book, the characters and even his thoughts about what happens to characters after a book ends. He also reveals that there is a version of this audiobook where he is the reader, for those of you who love to listen to authors narrate their own work.
To conclude, whether you are a young adult or an adult who is young at heart, you will enjoy listening to this book. It will remind you of how beautiful life can be, even - or especially - in the face of death.
