A good "cancer book" 2 mars 2012
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur
Format: Relié
"Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" was my second "cancer book" in as many months. Although both Jesse Andrews and John Green had the same intention - to write a story about cancer that was different from those other tearjerky novels, in my eyes, Andrews was much more successful at stepping away from melodrama and cliches of the genre than Green. Of course, Andrews does not (yet) have a publicity platform of Green's magnitude to promote his novel, so I am glad to be able to help him out a little, because, from my perspective, "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is a better, more honest, more real book than "The Fault in Our Stars."

It is better mainly because it does not try to force you into feeling all the obvious things we are expected to feel reading stories about young, terminally ill characters. There is a certain compulsion to idealize cancer kids, lives ending so tragically early and all that. It is also pretty common to practically guilt you into feeling sorry for their specific predicament. But I like that Andrews allows his characters, even his hero, to be resentful and maybe indifferent towards or burdened by the illness, that his cancer-stricken patient is not an ever-so-wise, heroic saint, that there are maybe no life lessons to learn from such personal tragedies. Maybe having a dying girl in your life is just an event that will affect you in a major way, or maybe it will not and that would be okay, too.

"Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is not all about cancer though, in fact, the dying girl subplot plays only a relatively small part in Greg's story. It is more about Greg defining himself, stopping to play so safe, about bringing a little more focus onto his future and about understanding of who he is. The author might be a little coy repeating again and again in his narrative that there is no point to this novel, but there is one.

Another good thing about "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is that it is very funny. The success of the book with a reader will depend a lot on what he/she finds funny though, because, admittedly, the novel is filled with jokes of the bathroom variety, you know, boogers, boobs and boners. But it was funny to me nevertheless.

Great dialogue, self-deprecating humor (albeit occasionally too self-deprecating to be not annoying), vulgarity, wacky secondary characters, fresh (to me) approach to portraying cancer - I enjoyed it all and I hope you will too.

A Funny, Touching and Impressive Debut 27 février 2012
Par Aeicha @ Word Spelunking - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Jesse Andrews' Me and Earl and the Dying Girl took me by surprise with its ability to make me laugh, infuriate me and have me on the verge of tears, often in the span of a single page.

Seventeen year Greg Gaines has somehow accomplished the seemingly impossible- made it to his senior year of high school maintaining a "friendly" acquaintanceship with every group/clique in his school without truly belonging to any of them. Greg and his only real friend, Earl, make their own movies but don't share them with anyone else...until Rachel happens. Greg and Rachel were friends when they were younger but haven't spoken in years, but after Rachel is diagnosed with leukemia Greg's mother insists he hang out with her. And somewhere along the way Greg and Earl are roped into making a film for dying Rachel, and Greg's comfortable invisibility vanishes forever.

Moving and poignant in entirely unexpected ways, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is brash, profane, funny, relentlessly honest and at times almost hard to take, but in the best way possible. This isn't your clichéd sappy, profound YA "cancer" book full of true love or life affirming if that's the kind of story you're looking for then this book probably isn't for you.

The writing style in this book is to the point, unique and quite addicting. I read this book in one sitting, simply unable to put it down and the Greg's story has continued to stick with me. Andrews offers readers a coming of age story that is heartbreaking and intense, but also easy and okay to laugh with and even at. With a pitch perfect voice, tone and dialogue this book feels and sounds authentic.

Greg Gaines is not always an easy character to like, nor do I think he is supposed to be, but he is always easy to relate to. Awkward (at times painfully so), unintentionally inconsiderate and insensitive, and at time abrasively humorous, he is both uniquely Greg and just like every other high school kid. I didn't always like his choices or how he treated people, but I always felt invested in his story. Earl is an incredibly realistic and well-crafted character. There's something oddly complex and endearing in his simplicity and unabashed honesty. Then there's Rachel, the dying girl. I found myself neither loving nor hating Rachel, which I like to think is exactly what Andrews intended. I truly felt for her character, but I appreciated the fact that Andrews didn't insist or force his readers to love her simply because she has cancer.

Throughout the book Greg insists that it isn't a book where the characters all learn profound life lessons...and it really isn't. But that's okay. And that in itself is pretty profound.

MY FINAL THOUGHTS: Jesse Andrews' Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a refreshingly eclectic, and at time weird story that explores the pain, awkwardness and unexpectedness that comes with growing up. Is this book for everyone? No. The subject matter, although approached with humor, is often intense and dark, but strikingly deep. I found Me and Earl and the Dying Girl to be an enjoyable and touching debut novel.

One of the FUNNIEST Books I've EVER Read! Rivals Beauty Queens! 21 juin 2012
Par YA Litwit - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I know this is a rather bold statement to be making with so much of the year left, but this is my Beauty Queens of 2012. What I mean is that Me and Earl and the Dying Girl will top my 2012 list of "Funniest Books of the Year". I have never laughed so hard while reading a book as I did while reading this one. In fact, I'm going to be even more bold and say that this is quite possibly the funniest book I have EVER read. You may find this statement odd, given the fact that this book is about two guys and their friend, who is dying of cancer, but this book is not about cancer; cancer is more like a supporting character... This book is actually about the main character, Greg, and the changes he goes through during his senior year. Yes, Rachel's cancer plays a role in shaping who Greg and Earl become over the course of the book, but in the end, it plays a rather small role.

I had a lots of reasons to love this book, and I really can't think of anything I didn't like about it. That said, I should give a disclaimer: I am an adult, and am not easily offended by profanity, objectification of women and their parts, or crude conversation (in fact, I tend to have a rather crass sense of humor, and often find these things amusing). This book contains all these things and more; it is a true depiction of how a 17 year old boy thinks and talks, and there are people who might find that offensive. If you are one of those people, you might as well skip this book. Now I can get to what I loved...

>This book is written as a stream of consciousness. It's written from the POV of Greg, and it is written as he thinks about and experience. Since, as you may have noticed, I write in much the same way, I like reading things written this way as well.
Did I mention this book was funny? If Judd Apatow wrote books, they would all read like this one.

>The characters were GREAT! Greg was the hopeless, lovable, self-deprecating kid who is too smart and/or edgy for his own good. Earl was the tough, tell-it-like-it-is, reluctant hero, who also happened to be my favorite. Rachel was the girl with cancer who forced Greg to grow, and Earl to show his vulnerable side. The supporting characters were pretty awesome too. I loved Greg's descriptions of his parents and sisters, Earl's brothers, and his teachers. Honestly, Jesse Andrews's biggest strength had to be in his descriptions of characters. They were just brilliant, and he had me laughing my arse off at every turn.

>Initially you're led to believe that there's not much plot or story line in this book. For a large portion of the book, I thought it was mainly Greg's observations of life; he even goes out of his way, many times, to let you know that, regretfully, this is NOT a book about a kid who discovers himself through his experiences dealing with a friend dying of cancer. Of course, it IS about that, but in a very convoluted way... I have to admit that the final chapter threw me for a loop. I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't tell you why, but I was genuinely surprised, and I NEVER saw it coming.

>The whole film angle was brilliant. Greg and Earl are ginormous fans of B-Movies and recreate many of their favorites over the course of their childhood. They show these to NOBODY, until Earl gives them to dying Rachel in the hopes of cheering her up. Greg is none to pleased, but he reluctantly goes along with it. A lot of the story involves the films and, I found myself wishing there was an interactive component to this book where we could see these films (especially the ones with the sock-puppets).

>The pacing was awesome!!! I mean, I could not go five pages without guffawing, and I couldn't go 25 pages without laughing so hard I had tears running down my face. I'm pretty sure that I peed my pants a little at least three or four times.
The cover is phenomenal. It is eye-catching, relevant to the story, and so VERY well done. Bravo to the designer!

Really, I could have just written, "This book is made of win, with awesomesauce on top!", but that would not have been much of a review. I have no doubt about the fact that Me and Earl and the Dying Girl will make my Top 25 YA Books of 2012 list. It is a definite favorite, and I hope you all will read it (but ONLY if you are not offended by profanity).

My Rating: 5+++ stars

Grade Level Recommendation: As I mentioned before, this book is heavy on the profanity, amongst other possibly objectionable things. I would say this is a definite "NO!" for Middle School age students, and iffy for even 9th graders. If this book were a movie, it would definitely be rated R. Because there are no actual visualizations, like in a movie, I'm not putting a 17+ stamp on it, but I am going to say that this is a book that should not be read by anyone younger than High School age. I recommend this book for readers who are AT LEAST 15 and older (grades 10+).

Exactly Just Right 28 septembre 2013
Par Pop Bop - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Lots of books, not just middle grade and YA, are blurbed as being "hilarious". This particular book is the closest I've gotten this year to "hilarious", which is saying a lot. More helpfully, since everyone's hilarious is different, this book is "admirable". By that I mean as I read it I admired and appreciated and enjoyed the way it was crafted. The main character, Greg, is a smart, funny, nice guy trying to come off as a hard case or a goof-off. He's neither. He has his head on straight, he is observant and insightful, and his narrative is generous and honest. He's not real, he's a fictional character; he's not authentic - no one is that sharp or consistently funny or interesting. But, he feels real, or at least channels enough of the real that any YA reader could identify with him and appreciate him and his story. Can you ask for much more than that from a YA novel?

This is not a book with big scenes or pratfalls or a complex slapstick plot. It isn't angsty and it isn't touchy-feely. It is much more like a shaggy dog stand up act full of pithy observational humor and pointless but funny stories. Our narrator is telling a story full of embellishments and asides. But, it doesn't read like the author is showing off; it reads like Greg is showing off. Because of that, and because of the story Greg has to tell, the whole enterprise becomes more engaging, more compelling, weightier and more rewarding, as the book progresses. But it never loses its delicate touch.

So, take your favorite story comic, (say, Cosby), add your favorite observational comic, (say, Seinfeld), add someone a little edgier, (say, Paula Poundstone), add a little weird, (say, Steven Wright), add some Catskills bits, then blend it all with a bizarro anti-J. D. Salinger, (i.e., one with a sense of humor), and since Greg is a film maker add Ed Wood, and you have an approximation of the experience that is this book. Does that sound enticing, or what?

Please note that I found this book while browsing the libe. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

It is kind of okay. 13 août 2014
Par gladi suero - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Problems : I hated Greg. He was a total unlikable person (but at least he admits it)
He was not funny
Rachael was my least favorite character. She was boring beyond belief. The fact that she is a main character and we know nothing about her kills me. (Though I realize she was meant to be boring I still don't like her)
Next to nothing happens in this book. 80% of it is Greg's repetitive dicky thoughts/ feelings on everything, 4% is something interesting, 16% is nothingness.
What I did like: Earl.I find his vulgarity hilarious and I like how he is real and truthful.
How Greg and Rachel don't fall in love.
The interesting writing style.
