Publisher's Summary

The book that inspired the hit film!

Up until senior year, Greg has maintained total social invisibility. He has only one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time - when not playing video games and avoiding Earl's terrifying brothers - making movies, their own versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics. Greg would be the first one to tell you his movies are f*@$ing terrible, but he and Earl don't make them for other people. Until Rachel.

Rachel has leukemia, and Greg's mom gets the genius idea that Greg should befriend her. Against his better judgment, and despite his extreme awkwardness, he does. When Rachel decides to stop treatment, Greg and Earl must abandon invisibility and make a stand. It's a hilarious, outrageous, and truthful look at death and high school by a prodigiously talented debut author.

This audiobook is read by the stars of the movie adaptation, Thomas Mann and RJ Cyler, as well as Keith Szarabajka, Hillary Huber, Kirby Heyborne, Abigail Revasch, and Adenrele Ojo.

    Story
    "Disclaimer: This Indie Book not for Everyone"

    On the periphery, Greg is neither cool kid nor complete outsider. He makes bad home movies with silly puns, bad dialogue, the occasional sock puppet, for amusement and as an homage to the greats (Kubrick, Kurosawa, etc.). When asked to spend time with an sort-of-ex-girlfriend, he begrudgingly enlists the help of Earl to begin this muddled attempt at friendship.

    This is an indie book, reading like a film and it is not "The Fault in Our Stars" or any other comparison publishers will claim to sell this book. In film fashion, there are many voices, and at times, the famous movie trailer narrator, randomly voices over a scene; odd and clever. The entire book is first person narrative, as if Greg's talking directly to you, like Ferris Bueller turned to the camera occasionally, but his monologue doesn't end. Knowing these facts, maybe this book is a good fit. It's a quirky deviation from what's out there right now, but not everyone's cup of tea.

    "Very good"

    I thought the story itself was both compelling and funny. And the fact that it was written as if Greg was writing a book and filling it with his own unfiltered thoughts made it even better. The story teller's voice was calming and he put a lot of emotion into what he was telling. All and all it was a good book and it was performed very well.

    "Wonderful cast recording of a touching take"

    I loved the fact this didn't romanticize or gloss over the way people really feel about and deal with death. A lot of folks compare this to "The Fault in Our Stars", but this is a very different story; only the basic topic remains the same. This is well worth a listen, not just for the book, but the wonderful cast performance.

    "Random!"

    Very good book. I especially if you have a young man (high school senior boy) in your life. Insightful. Kinda weird. I liked it a lot.

    "Witty and well done voice acting"

    An overall amazing book that if made even better by the superb cast of voice actors. On the same level as John Green in many regards, while remaining wholely relatable to the true teenaged plight.

    "funny book"

    the story was pretty well written. I like the style it was written in. but the main character isn't likeable, which keeps me from giving the book five stars. but at the same time he's what naked the book, you know, since it's about his life.

    "EMOTIONAL TRAIN WRECK"
    What did you love best about Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Revised Edition)?

    I love that it is so realistic, and it captures you in a way that is funny yet at the same time down to earth. I love all the sarcasm, and the way the story is told, from Greg's perspective.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Revised Edition)?

    One of the most memorable moments of Me and Earl and the Dying girl is the first time Greg has to hang out with Rachel because that is where everything starts.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I liked the narrator's voice.


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

    This was a book that I wanted to listen to all in one sitting, but I couldn't.


    Any additional comments?

    Although I loved the movie, and I loved the book, I felt like the narrator did not captivate the story it was supposed to.

    "Awk"

    The story was hard to listen to. The narrative was uncomfortably awkward the whole way through.

    Story
    "Different from other YA books"
    Would you listen to Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Revised Edition) again? Why?

    Probably not. I liked it a lot, but I didn't love it. It's not the type of book that I would typically listen to again.


    What other book might you compare Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Revised Edition) to and why?

    I suppose a lot of people would compare it to The Fault in Our Stars because one of the main characters has cancer, but that is where the similarities end. There is no romance or great adventures. There aren't really any memories made or lessons learned.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but the narration in this book is fantastic. A full cast is a great and different experience.


    Any additional comments?

    It is pretty different from the movie. The movie is happier.

    "Couldn't finish it"

    Either a work of genius that I failed to get... or just a really boring, pointless book. This is the first time I've left a book unfinished on Audible, but just couldn't be bothered to listen until the end.
