[Stranger Than Fanfiction] New · Chris Colfer

I read and loved Struck by Lightning and after reading the synopsis I was expecting the same Sort Of Witty And Sarcastic of witty and sarcastic of prose What I found was uite disappointing The voices of all of the characters yes we do et 5 POVs throughout the story and random thoughts throughout were very young I would have never A Secret Kept guessed that any of them were on their way to college Ther Chris Colfer did it again surprised me in the most pleasant ways possible with this unexpectedly hilarious but at the same time very touching story about four friends each battles a social challenge and how their common hero in the person of their favorite actor virtually changed their lives forever when seemingly on a whim he joins them on their epic nerdy road trip which of course detoured to several un nerdy adventures I think I now have a new favorite author in Mr Colfer because his writing is consistently funny and thoughtful at the same time up until the Author s Note actually His metaphors keep me cracking up and his pop references are super on point I love how there is complete diversity among the characters and how well rounded each of them are as the story is told in each of their perspective but using the Third Person Omniscient You definitelyet to know each of them including their Full review on my blog the Snark TheaterAnd speaking of my blogtalk about a missed snark opportunity Goodreads updates just aren t as convenient as a ood ol blog postLikewow I started off with an early eh 25 maybe 3 stars and it

All Went Downhill Even An 
went downhill Even an ago I was considering 2 stars butno I don t feel indulgent towards this book And I uess that means Chris Colfer hates me because I m a critic Well I don t careFor context I ve always liked Colfer s writing until now He makes some amateurish mistakes that should absolutely have been caught by an editor if he wasn t you know famous for instance his tendency to handle surprise by telling us what s shocking about the scene in italics instead of letting us put two and two together by showing the implicationsreactions but overall I ve liked his books It helped that they were children s books and the Struck by Lightning novelization was as far as I can remember better than the Land of Story books in terms of style Meanwhile this book is YA and it still reads like a children s booksBut if that was all I wouldn t mind the book or ive it a one star rating Oh no There s Specifically five thing You know one per protagonistThis book is paint by the numbers with its first four main protagonists story arc We meet them we learn about something bad with their life and the story proceeds to solve it one way or another So we have Christopher Topher Collins surprisingly not an author insert as far as I could tell who has a sick brother which we can t really do away with and a crush on one of his friends Said friend is Sam Gibson who s a trans boy in the closet Then we have Joey Davis who s ay and from a black which is important hyperreligious family And Mo whose full name the book doesn t bother using than twice because Japanese names are icky and complicated and I The Ancient Greeks: Ten Ways They Shaped the Modern World guess American teens can t be bothered to use Moriko Mo s issues is that her father wants her too to Stanford and pursue a ood career instead of writing because he wants her to be able to take care of him when he s retired which I m pretty sure is two racist tropes wrapped into one character arc Which brings me back to Joey s family because it s a little bit suspicious when out of your cast half of the characters are white and have accepting families and half of.

Stranger Than FanfictionCed the writing is accessible and the story is complex enough to keep you reading but not enough to ask for your analysis and stipulations My favourite parts were the sometimes awkward sometimes weird sometimes liberating interactions between the TV star Cash Carter and the four friends See Sam Topher Joey and Mo all have their own secrets and often it s easier to talk to someone who doesn t know us personally because they can ive us better objective advices I hope the amazingly sarcastic Chris Colfer will write books in the future I d rather read him than see him honestly though he has a cute face don t et me wrong I d pick books over movies anytime that s for sure Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin This book was in the BLK Book PoolI chose it because I liked the title cover because I haven t read much YA this year Although I had heard of the TV programme Glee I ve never watched it so I hadn t heard of Chris ColferI liked the book It was written in the flat style so typical of a lot of modern YA writing but every now again Colfer would show some enuine insight compassion The book rarely dragged I missed all the clues leading up to The Big Scene This was Let Freedom Reign': The Words of Nelson Mandela.
