This must be YA that I picked up in error.
Nothing by John Green
Jeff Woodman is the only good thing about this book.
Oh, maybe Colin, his parents, or maybe Hassan.
I enjoyed listening to this book. Interesting characters, well narrated. You felt liek you were inside their heads.
Although slightly predictable, there were enough twists to keep me interested. The characters were very engaging.
The scenes with Colin and Lindsay in the secret hiding place.
Middle aged man, relatively low mileage.
First, Jeff Woodman's narration is fantastic. And I enjoyed the author's skill in quirky dialogue. But about 3/4 of the way through I turned it up to 1.5 speed just to get through it faster.
Sure, I'd love to hear your story....
Alternately silly, funny, and slightly intellectual. Great concept and well written - - just a little short on plot. More just needed to happen to earn that fifth star. Narrator was excellent.
More for the younger crowd, particularly kids who want to be nerds. Seems to be a trend not based in reality. Or maybe the definition of nerd has changed...
He didn't have a lot to work with but his voice was good for narration. I liked his tone changes. I'm not sure I would have gotten through the book if I had been reading it.
That was a rather weak story. Filled with the word fugger, to get away with swearing in a teen novel. The characters reminded me of the main characters in Looking for Alaska by the same author. They fit into neat little stereotypical boxes.
I am happy it was a short book and that I got it on an audible sale or I wouldn't have bothered finishing it. There was nothing unique about the story, it was filled with a lot of talking and not a lot of plot or character development. While the idea of a mathematical formula that could predict relationships is kind of interesting it did not need to be an entire story.
This YA adult story focuses on a recently graduated young genius who angsts over losing his latest girlfriend and reaching the ripe-old-age of 18 without making his mark on the world. Sure, he's brilliant and knows lots of stuff--but what good is that? So he and his best friend (love him) take a road trip and discover things about life and themselves when they land in a small town. Warnings for crude language, cursing, and sexual references. It was weird, but I liked it.
john green must have been a funny kid. great for YA and adults. I loved the characters so much. great summer read
