Review: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
Greg reminded me a lot of someone I used to know when I was roughly the same age as the characters, which helped make the novel that extra bit entertaining. (Yes real life Greg. I was laughing at you.) I found the novel to be fairly realistic, and surprisingly cynical for something that was intended for roughly the same audience as The Fault in Our Stars, but strangely enough, that was also a huge part of the appeal. I felt that Earl's character could have been better written, I neither liked him, or loved to hate him like I did Greg. On the whole though, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was an entertaining read that never gets too bogged down in sentiment or with likeable characters.
