Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from took me a while to like it but i did It is not A Fault in Our Stars kind of book. It's funny yes but very very sad. Greg is forced by his mother to socialize with his sort of ex girlfriend whom he finds out is dying from leukemia. He has a friend Earl who has no problem with the telling like it is way of living. This book is about three teenagers being teenagers living through friendship, love and death.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I don't know This book had some nice moments but it fell flat. Let me be clear, this is not at all like The Fault In Our Stars as was stated by another reviewer. The plot was all over the place and the characters were very unlikable, especially the protagonist. Wasn't my cup of tea

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh Didn't love it, nor did I hate it. I didn't like the ending at all and found Greg to be very insensitive throughout the entire book. The movie is so so SO much better (and one of my faves).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very different from what you expect Jesse Andrews tells you from the start, this is not a love story, and while the story seems to be building to one it doesn't and instead takes a refreshing twist from what you might expect after reading something more like The Fault in our Stars. Somehow this one, despite it's brutal -at times ugly- honesty it is still a tear-jerker.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The movie's better I bought this book after watching the movie; which by the way was amazing in my opinion. The book, however, was a disappointment. I commend the author for trying to be different than other contemporary books but the characters just seemed extremely forced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW This book was SUPER different because it didn't follow the stereotypical plot of a girl with cancer kind of book. It "broke the rules" which is awesome to see, plus it was hilarious! It's an indie type book and I definitely see how it became a film festival movie! I'd call it a must read. Easy to take wherever and read on the go. You can be in any mood to enjoy this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i loved it! Sure, it was an easy read and it didn't have some life-changing message or characters to just fall in love with or anything you traditionally expect from a book, but that was the point! Greg's humour is weird and he's actually awkward and despite what he went through in the book it didn't make dramatic changes to his life, but it was still big in its own way. I think that it's a really great and interesting read that doesn't follow along with the conventional fiction tropes, and that's fine!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quick read This book was very young-adult, self-deprecating, and ultimately a breeze to read. I had seen the movie a few months ago while the book was still on my library reserve list. As per usual, I did like the book better than the movie, although it still wasn't my cup of tea. Greg was a try-hard and his humour was sometimes exhausting. This is not your typical feel-good cancer story, but it was an easy and mostly enjoyable read.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from nonsensical lacked substance and left me wishing i had read something else instead. really wanted to like it, but i was disappointed. i appreciated the quirky narrative, but it just wasn't my thing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Funny book but meaningless The first couple of pages, I was laughing out loud and thought the author had done an amazing job at making a funny character. But after a while, the story was really boring, the humour just got silly and I don't know if I missed the whole point of the story, but I just felt like there was nothing to b told. I just wanted to finish the book to get on reading another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Me and Earl and the Dying Girl Awkward, humorous (sometimes crudely so), occasionally emotional, as much as I love a good romance, I like that this one didn’t go there. #plumreview

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very good.. I really wanted to like this book but...I honestly didn't like it at all. I hated the narrator, and found the crude sense of humor offensive at times, especially when the topic is concerning cancer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Read I'm not a big reader so I tend to like lighthearted books and this was just that. It was pretty funny, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty funny There was a writers thoughts part at the beginning, and so I assumed it was Jesse Andrew's but it was actually the main character's thoughts, anyway I think that bit was my favourite part of the whole book, I found it so funny

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did Not Finish I tried reading this book since they made a movie so I figured it had to be good. But right at the start, Greg was a bit of a quirky guy and I didn't really enjoy his narration or his crude humour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Me Earl and the Dying Girl Jesse Andrews To say this book took me by complete surprise and wasn't what I expected is the understatement of the year. Another thing about this book, it felt like it was trying so hard to be eccentric and different. Like how there were all the dorky goth kids and Mr. McCarthy and all of Earl's brothers. Not everyone is eccentric like that. For a lot of people, you have to get to know them and then you figure out all their little quirks. There is no place that I'm aware of where you can have teachers who are shoeless in class and kids who beat up on each other randomly and a girl dying of cancer and a kid so unable to feel things and only able to beat up on himself but who likes to make films anyway so his future self can just talk about how much they suck some more. That is just too much in my opinion. There have to be some "normal" people.I honestly didn't care about the characters at all. And I think that's the issue, even when Rachel died I was like, "eh, what a shame." Greg seemed like a total jerk, I could get used to Earl in a way and I actually enjoyed his character, but it was just odd.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heartwarming and Untraditional This book takes young adult fiction and flips it on its head a bit. It follows a heartwarming story of friendship but doesn't treat young people with the kind of sensitivity adults usually reserve for young people. Smart, eloquent, funny and bittersweet, this book is one I'd recommend to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this book This book was honest and true, and so funny - I audibly laughed out loud on many occasions. The format was something entirely new to me but I liked it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of my favourite books! The reason I love this book is because it's one of the most authentic and raw books I've read in a while. It's not your typical Teen book filled with romance and unrealistic events. It makes you laugh and it makes your heart ache, creating this wonderful balance when reading it. Definitely recommend this book!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to get into I liked the overall story even though it was a bit messy. I thought it was a fresh take on how a teenager might handle the loss of someone his same age and how they may not face up to their true feelings. #plumreview

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was okay I bought this during a vacation on an island close to my home and I was really looking forward to reading it to understand what all the hype was about. Of course I had expectations and no, I wasn't expecting it to be similar to John Green's work as I've heard that they're quite opposite from one another, but I had hope that it would be pretty good. My expectations had nothing to do with the fact that I didn't really like it as much because I was still pretty clueless about the book in general, I only knew it because of the upcoming movie. It's pretty good. I might have missed the point of this book's message because I didn't really get anything out of it after finishing it. I felt kinda empty and I didn't really care much for the characters. I can barely recall their names now that I think about it. It's definitely original but it wasn't emotionally gripping for me. Nice cover though :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Yes this book was quite good and I the characters were funny but overall it wasn't memorable. It's an easy read for a chill afternoon and I would still recommend it but for me, it wasn't anything life changing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the audio I listened to the audiobook on the bus one day and had to fight back the laughs. I think this is an interesting take on the trend of sick teens in YA books, although I didnt really think of it as being in the same subject area as the fault in our stars since the focus of the book is so different.
Date published: 2016-12-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boring I had heard so many good things about this book. I didn't really find any of them when I read it. I didn't find it funny, interesting, or at all heartfelt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from One of the few books I liked less than the movie Funny at times and emotional at others, there was just something missing. Unfortunately, it didn't have the same impact on me as the film did

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ummmm... It took me almost 6 months to finish this book (and i usually finish books within days). I kept starting new books while reading this one because it didn't grab my attention. Few parts were funny, and the plot wasn't horrible, but details are dragged on for pages. Not worth reading.
Date published: 2016-11-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from comedy is the only worthwhile medicine Great book. In real life, tragedy is bleak and awkward humour is the only way through. I guess this book has a specifically relatable audience based on the other comments. A lot of people have difficulty with the silly stories of sick children.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Silly I thought this book would be touching and emotional similar to The Fault in our Stars however it had a bad main idea and made the events seem fully rather than serious. Did not bother finish reading it. Wouldn't recommend to any friends who ask.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I liked it. It had A Fault in Our Stars vibe, except funnier. I also liked the format it was written in. It's movie adaptation wasn't that bad either, I actually really enjoyed it, and I thought it portrayed the characters nicely. I guess all in all it's a good book, but like in wouldn't sell my soul to Jesse Andrews or anything (sorry, I hope you weren't counting on that or anything).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Silly I thought this book was bad. Sorry, but I really didn't like it at all. I thought it was silly and lacked a good main idea. I didn't even finish this book and sent it back to the store; thankfully it was a Heather's Pick and I was able to get something else that I enjoyed much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Book I read this book, but I had to purchase it and re read it. It's similar to the fault in our stars- but with a little more humour.
