PDF READ (Road Tripped)

I mean REALLY average teenage boy on a seemingly aimless trip through the American Midwest The trip comes about after his father s suicide which has disrupted his relationship with his mother and after his girlfriend has moved away and not bothered to contact him at all Now I think it s worth noting that I went into this fully expecting to not see a ton of plot I expected this to be mostly introspective and focus on character development and Stiggy coming to terms with all that had happened But OH coming to terms with all that had happened But OH I was so bored Not only does nothing happen in this story which is fine but all of the characters happen in this story which is fine but all of the characters either INCREDIBLY unlikable or the women mostly have absolutely no substance I couldn t keep any of them straight because they all had no discernible personality and generally just sucked as people Also the way everyone including Stiggy talks about women is justgross By the time I had finished the story I felt like there was no point I suppose Stiggy was a little bit self aware but not enough for me to really consider it development Also it s worth noting that this is told in this non linear way that jumps back and forth between the past and the present but I found it generally confusing to tell these two timelines apart because nothing was happening in either time line I am definitely in the minority in not liking this book but the whole thing just felt so Bro to me in the same way Wildman felt Just not my jam apparently Trigger and Content Warnings Suicide death of a parent mentions of depression and other mental illness attempted rapesexual assault I think there might have been underage drinking but I honestly can t remember and I lost my notes a weird incest comment that I still can t tell whether or not it was a joke Self absorbed white teen learns a few important lessons about kindness respect and thinking beyond his own needs while road trippingDifficult but important self "GROWTH THE ONLY REASON I DID NOT DNF THIS " The only reason I did not DNF this was because I liked the format and the writing style But the overarching feeling I had while reading this book was three things First I hate the names he gave them what kind of name is Stiggy Second why was this written Third how is this character not an irredeemable jerk Beyond the plodding plot and nonsensical endpoint the story was a generic angsty White boy who cannot understand that he is the problem It included so many problematic elements that were never properly subverted or even examined From the friend zone to manic pixie dream girls and a weird incest conversation and some elements that lacked a proper version of consent Why do we need another book about sad white boys I thought we had moved beyond this It was pretty sexist and Stiggy couldn t properly express emotions It s 2019 I don t want to read this again and it s a really not worth anyone s time The character learns nothing until like the last two pages. Problem is life on his own isn’t exactly what he expected and soon enough he finds himself at a crossroads keep running from his demons or let them hitch a ride back home with him. ,
