It was ok
The start of the book wasn’t very promising, but later on the story really got to me.
I would say: well done, Mr. Green, a book about living with anxiety in real life / teenage life!
Agreed. I put it down more than once, and then forced myself to continue. Glad I did.
Same here. It didn’t really depend on events or plot twists, everything was meh exxept for the parts where Aza was portraying her sturggle. I guess people who went through some sort of mental disease would come to appreciate that one.
It’s the only book of his that I’ve read, but I loved his portrayal of what it’s like to live with OCD. I thought it was a good read.
My first read as well!! Do you kbow any other bools that come to describe mental illness like that one?
Words on the Bathroom Walls (schizophrenia), Being Me with OCD, The Temptation of Adam (deals with addiction), Starfish (social anxiety), The Memory of Light (depression)
I heard that the author has OCD, but it makes me wonder why he wrote about it via a teenage girl. *shrug* I thought the book was too hipster for me.
Well, yeah he talked abt that in one of his vlogs.
it was just ok
I normally love his books but I wasn’t a fan of this one
I couldn’t get into it.
I loved it
I liked it.
I didn’t finish it
I loved it.
I liked it.
It was just OK for me. I love all his books but this one wasn’t the best one IMO.
It was disappointing. Unique characters and potential for a great storyline but it falls flat and incomplete.
I think if this had been his first book, he might have had problems getting it published. While it’s well written from a technical aspect, it didn’t seem to have that emotional hook to draw the reader in like his previous books. I’m glad I read it though, because I learned more about OCD.
It was really uncomfortable for me to read. It made me anxious. But I love the characters and the way he explains what OCD means for some people.
Same thing happened to me and i thought that maybe because i had some sort of mental illness in the past.
