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?

    "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.

    "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.

    "Great read."

    A fantastic story of a girl who is trapped in her obsession with a fictional world and its characters. It's smart, it's funny, it's sad, and it's well written. I even learned a few lessons as a writer from it.

    "Still not sure what I think of this book...."
    Any additional comments?

    This book was okay, I gave it 3 stars because the parts I did like were enjoyable. But the other parts, I really didn't. The book doesn't really end.... I'm usually okay with the unknowing but this left WAY too many things untouched. I wish Rainbow Rowell had gone further into the struggles of writing and stepping outside of your comfort zone for her fiction class. I wish she had touched more on the struggles with her mother. Some of the scenes with Levi went on forever and left me wanting to smack Cath upside the head and get on with it. The 'will I touch him?' got infuriating. Perhaps a younger audience will appreciate this. It was entertaining but will probably return this and find something better.

    "Great story, abrupt ending"

    Great story. I really got into in. the end did seem a bit abrupt. there were a number of things that were left unresolved to me.

    "Great narrator"

    Loved the narrator. And the story was laugh out loud funny. Didn't love the reading of the fan fiction by Cath but other than that it was a really entertaining and funny story.
