  1. This book is beautiful. And that’s really the right word, because I see it more as a work of art than I do as a book. Although it _is_ a good book- a very good one.

    However, it’s very thin, both in plot and in character. There’s a good reason for that, but I also think it would have been possible to include more width (not depth, because it’s pretty deep already) without hurting the integrity of Evan’s narration.

    But as I said, it’s beautiful, and Levithan/Farmer did an amazing job working together despite not knowing what the other was doing. I approve of this book, and it definitely adds to my already-high respect for the author.

  2. I just finished this about five minutes ago, and I agree that it’s a beautiful, wonderful book, as well as one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. I liked all of the characters, although I feel like Levithan could have done more with Fiona, and I really couldn’t put it down.

    I haven’t read much else by Levithan, but I really want to now. Either way, this is probably my favorite book this year.
