I Love You, Beth Cooper | [Larry Doyle]

I Love You, Beth Cooper

Denis Cooverman wanted to say something really important in his high school graduation speech. So, in front of his 512 classmates and their 3,000 relatives, he announced: "I love you, Beth Cooper." It would have been such a sweet, romantic moment. Except that Beth, the head cheerleader, has only the vaguest idea who Denis is. And Denis, the captain of the debate team, is so far out of her league he is barely even the same species.

Audible Editor Reviews

Larry Doyle (a former writer for "Beavis and Butthead" and "The Simpsons") brings his comedic genius to the novel with this story of one nerd's dream come true - spending graduation night with head cheerleader Beth Cooper. Fans of the movie will recognize the voice of Paul Rust, who portrayed geeky valedictorian Denis Cooverman in the film of the same title. Rust delivers this humorous and sometimes-outrageous account, told from Denis's point of view, in a mostly straightforward manner. He saves his more dramatic efforts for the antics of Beth's friends and boyfriend, allowing the satirical tone to come mainly from the bizarre set of circumstances that emerge during the last - and greatest - night of high school.

Publisher's Summary

Denis Cooverman wanted to say something really important in his high school graduation speech. So, in front of his 512 classmates and their 3,000 relatives, he announced: "I love you, Beth Cooper."

It would have been such a sweet, romantic moment. Except that Beth, the head cheerleader, has only the vaguest idea who Denis is. And Denis, the captain of the debate team, is so far out of her league he is barely even the same species. And then there's Kevin, Beth's remarkably large boyfriend, who's in town on furlough from the United States Army. Complications ensue.

    "wonderful book"

    I love this book! Its everything a book like this should be; funny, sweet, smart. I think the narrator is just right, capturing the sly asides as well as the minds of all the characters. I've probably listened to it three times now!

    "A great and fun read...er...listen...er both"
    If you could sum up I Love You, Beth Cooper in three words, what would they be?

    Great Teen Comedy


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I Love You, Beth Cooper?

    The entire book is memorable, but the most would be the moment where they are driving through the town and the history of what they have done, wear they have worked, and the memories that go with the places they drive by. This moment tells me that the author knew some of these kids growing up


    Which scene was your favorite?

    As before the scene of them driving through town. After so many insane events, this real moment brings about the truest moment. The moment of pure reality. I felt like I went to school with these kids.


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

    Four Words...One Night...Priceless Memories


    Any additional comments?

    I believe that this book is the essential teen movie. While I do like the film, I will say that the book is so much better and that the film should have been more like the book, a hard R rating. Truth the movie needed to be R rated as the book was. Despite how insane the book is the harsh realities in the humor of the dialogue, situations, and scenario come across so much better in this R rated book. Get this for your kids when they graduate. It is reflective no mater the social class.

    "Much funnier than the movie"

    The sole reason that I got this book was that I had a credit burning a hole in my pocket. I was happy to have spent that credit on this book. More entertaining than the movie, and more disturbing too. Enjoy!
