You've read The Fault In Our Stars & are looking for something lighter, funnier, nihilistic, tangential, & self-deprecating, with more realism & Werner Herzog. You open this book & find a deeply flawed teenager, obsessed with filmmaking, trying to avoid a forced friendship with his acquaintance recently diagnosed with Leukemia. You don’t like him, but you can relate. You are horribly sad when this book ends because it has a sneaky hidden depth. Your trusty bookseller friend says, "One of my favorite books this year!" and she was right.
“This novel of unlikely friendship is a wry, self-effacing, sarcastic read that is impossible to put down. When Greg's (sort of) ex-girlfriend is diagnosed with leukemia, he finds himself prodded into a half-hearted friendship. Enter Earl, Greg's only other friend, a pseudo-thug with a Napoleon complex who curses like a sailor. Of course, friendship blossoms between all three. It's the gems of discovery made by each that make this book so memorable, and it doesn't hurt that it's told with a hilarious, cinematic tone. This is an honest, smart, belly laugh-inducing, tearjerker of a novel.”
