Community Reviews

Good Book

This is actually my favorite book by Rainbow Rowell. It's funny and realistic.

Good Book

I enjoyed the plot of this story although I didn't find it as engrossing as Eleanor & Park. I liked the character development and plot line. I'd agree with manz that the narration and dialog was funny. It seemed honestly written.

Midwestern Teen Love Story

Lovely story about a college freshman in Nebraska. Rowell's becoming one of my favorite YA authors. This coming-of-age story touches on so many different things: fan fiction and the internet, fantasy books and their fan communities (think Harry Potter), slash fiction, bipolar disorder, twins, parental abandonment, college drinking, roommates, anxiety....all of this without becoming heavy-handed or preachy. It was awesome.

The only thing I didn't love about this book was the cover. And it took a while for me to realize just how deep the story was; it seemed cutesy (like the cover) at first, and it has definitely been marketed/advertised that way.

good teen book!

Another great book from Rainbow Rowell. I really enjoyed Echo & Park, and was excited to read the author's follow-up novel. While I preferred Echo to Fangirl, I still found Fangirl a fun and refreshing read. Very funny narration and dialog.
