The main character was continually, stubbornly unlikable. I found myself actually yelling at her to get over herself, stand up for herself, and other things that might give away spoilers. I forced myself to finish it hoping for some development and growth, but I was disappointed. I picked Fangirl because I loved Eleanor & Park so much- but this was the complete opposite.
Nothing by Rainbow Rowell.
Rebecca Lowman was brilliant as always. She's fast become my favorite reader. She was the most enjoyable part of this audiobook.
Maxwell Caulfield was great as well.
Cath. All the secondary characters had purpose, growth, development, etc. Cath was a complete doormat waste of space.
Eleanor & Park blew me away with how much I nostalgically related to the adolescent angst, so I was expecting something similar with Fangirl. It didn't happen. I'm just glad it's over, and I only wish I'd quit it when I first realized how wet-rag Cath is for a protagonist instead of wasting the next 10+ hours hoping for some growth.
