You know when you read a book that is so perfect you do not want to stop and then you wonder why you started that book at night and then it is 3AM and you know you need to sleep but you just keep reading. Just because. Because the book makes you happy. This book is FUN, BRILLIANT, AMAZING and so many more good adjectives.
I have read all Rainbow Rowell books this year and every book is pure perfection, I can even decide which one is my favorite.
Are you a fangirl? Have you ever been one? Of anything, a tv series, a band, a book. If you have been one, you can relate to Cath, a Simon Snow fan, fanfic writer, sister, friend and daughter. As a pro fangirl I think is really scary how much I can relate to Cath, she is awkward but she is still badass (not Reagan kind of badass though), and has so many thing in her mind that reminds me of myself like the whole thing of not knowing where some places are and staying in her building with the protein bars (in my case is coffee). Cath is dealing with her new life, college life. Everything is changing, her twin sister Wren is changing, her father is breaking down, her roommate is hard to read, her classes are different, she does not have enough time a day to write: to be a fangirl. And there is a boy.. in her room, outside her room with his tall, skinny figure and he talks a lot and smiles A LOT. And life is changing.
Oh Levy. I freaking love him. If I ever meet a guy a little similar to him I will kidnap him. Levi is just Levi, the boy every girl needs and wants and if you say you do not you are probably lying. With his easy smiles, checked shirts an easy personality, he will become a friend to Cath, someone who will be there for her if she needs him, someone who actually listens to her and cares about what she is saying.
I loved Cath and Levi relationship, they actually talk and Levi does not make fun of Cath and of what she likes and he does not care is she just a girl with her lazy pony tail, comfortable clothes and weird hobbies. And they are so cute, sweet and funny and and I have so many feeling for them.
There are also other characters important characters that complete the circle of perfection that Fangirl is.
I loved Cath and WrenÃƒƒƒƒ‚Ãƒƒƒ‚Ãƒƒ‚Ãƒ‚Ã‚Â´ss dad. He is.. interesting. From the start I loved his personality and the connection he has with Cath. I think Cath is his favorite daughter (every dad has a favorite do not even try to deny it), they are similar in character while Wren is more similar to Laura /ugh Laura/. And that is another thing that makes me relate to Cath, I always worry about my dad while my brothers and sister act more like Wren.
CathÃƒƒƒƒ‚Ãƒƒƒ‚Ãƒƒ‚Ãƒ‚Ã‚Â´s roommate Reagan is the girl no one admits they want to be, but she is cool and does whatever she feels like doing, she is scary and has a strong personality that will make you like her from the start.
Wren is nice... I probably disliked her (and Courtney) 70% of the book but I understand the whole change she had. I think Cath was going through similar things and they only chose different paths to deal with their problems.
FANGIRL is a coming of age story that will make you see things how they really are, the realistic kind of college experience. Normal characters with real problems that the normal population has been through or is going through. There are tons of good things I could say about this book but I will just stop fangirling over it. I will probably read every Rainbow Rowell book until the end of times.show more
