Publisher's Summary

In Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life - and she's really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow Series when they were just kids; it's what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath's sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can't let go. She doesn't want to.

Now that they're going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn't want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She's got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words...And she can't stop worrying about her dad, who's loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories? Open her heart to someone? Or will she just go on living inside somebody else's fiction?

    "Huge FAN of Fangirl"
    Would you listen to Fangirl again? Why?

    Probably not...I don't relisten to books though this would be on my list if I did!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fangirl?

    I enjoyed the angst Cath felt when Nick took ownership of their shared work and how she handled it. Generally I can't pick a single moment though. The book flowed seamlessly and captured my heart and mind. It was difficult to stop listening.


    What does Rebecca Lowman and Maxwell Caulfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought both were excellent! Perfect choices for the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Would make a great movie but can't think of a tag line :(


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed immensely and would recommend to those who like feel good books.

    "great story."

    For some reason I couldn't put this down, it's like cath was me, the only thing is there were a few moments of rise but no strong climax. all in all though a great book.

    "Not as good as Attachments IMHO"
    Where does Fangirl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Middle


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Carry On parts and Cath's roommate!


    What does Rebecca Lowman and Maxwell Caulfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I do love British accents so the Simon Snow parts were great! I liked the voices of most of the characters, especially the attitude of Cath's roommate!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Somewhat


    Any additional comments?

    I am alone in this but I was slightly disappointed after having devoured Attachments on Audible. The main character of Fangirl, Cath, is a pathetic dork who really just complains the entire first half of the book. She did grow on me, however, as the story went on. I liked all the characters except Cath. I enjoyed the book overall, but thought Attachments was funnier and more entertaining.

    Story
    "Fantastic Audio!"

    I adored this book! Well, until the end at least. Also, I listened to the audiobook which was fantastic! Great narration.

    When Cath's twin decides to spread her wings at college, Cath is left to fend for herself. She's completely out of her comfort zone and has a rough time adjusting. She's too shy, she's too nervous, she's too nerdy and she's completely miserable. Luckily, her surly roommate takes pity on her. And with Reagan comes Levi, her always happy and smiling boyfriend.

    "I feel sorry for you, and I'm going to be your friend."
    "I don't want to be your friend," Cath said as sternly as she could. "I like that we're not friends."
    "Me, too. I'm sorry you ruined it by being so pathetic.”

    Like I said, I adored this. The characters were real to me. I felt like I was there going through everything right along with Cath. I was rooting for her. I was also rooting for "you know who"!

    That being said, the ending needed some work. As in an actual ending! I was listening and all of a sudden it was over. "Thank you for listening, blah, blah blah." It could have been a 5 star book if not for that non-end.

    "Great novel aside from 2 issues"

    1. The Simon series in this novel was reminiscent of Harry Potter WAY TOO MUCH!!! I'm surprised Rowell isn't in trouble with copyright issues from JK Rowling!
    2. What kind of ending was that..? Literally no closure or ending. Just kind of stopped like she got tired of writing! Disappointed with the "ending" after such a good young adult fiction story otherwise.

    Story
    "I'm a fan!"
    Would you listen to Fangirl again? Why?

    I would listen to this again in a heartbeat!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cath and Levi, but I'm completely biased because I am Cather (a huge HP fan and Hunger Games fanfic fan) and Levi is my husband (the nicest country boy I've ever met). If you've ever felt you're too weird and inexperienced to ever find love you will be able to relate to these characters, even if you are 18 or 34 (like me).


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Every scene with Cath and Levi was my favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, actually ended up listening the last 4 hours in one sitting and went to bed at 2am. I hope R. Rowell keeps having Rebecca Lowman as her narrator. She was perfect in Eleanor & Park and she was perfect here!


    Any additional comments?

    The only bad thing I have to say (and it's not really bad) is that I quickly lost interest in Simon Snow both by Gemma T. Leslie and Magicath. I was so desperate to know what would happen with Cath and Levi that by the end I was skipping anything that had to do with Simon.
