My preorder copy of Meets Girl (complete with a note from the author, number, and a tarot card) is one of my favorite books. I waited to get the ebook edition, wanting to see if it was as good on my phone's kindle app as it was in print in my hands.

It transcends the media to go into your heart and make you... giddy.

Maybe it's the fact that we become such intimate friends with the narrator/author of Meets Girl through the chapters. Maybe it's the writing that turns a phrase in such a way that your heart aches- the way he describes his love for Veronica or for his story. Or maybe it's Angus and my own longing to meet someone like him coupled with all the questions of what choices I would make should I come across a Futures Trader like that.

All in all a great book.

I purchased this book on the strength of the author's prior novel which I thought was very good. This gave me the impression of being more as a personal journal than a novel. While there were parts of the book which offered glimmers of interest it never seemed to take off. Perhaps the author's next effort will be better, but this book alone left me with little desire to seek such out.

unlike anything i've ever read, and that's a very good thing in this case. very bizarre, totally loveable, and fantastically written. love, priorities, power, choices, dreams ... a most tangled web. i think you should read it.

I have read the classics, and it got tedious reading pages of them in this book. I appreciate what the author was trying to do, the idea was sound, but the execution was difficult to read. What could have been told as a short story was stretched to novel length on the strength of other authors, too long tarot readings, and introspection sometimes best left unwritten.

There were highlights that made the author's talent peek through--I enjoyed his headings at the beginning of each chapter and his comparing the structure of storytelling to that of a play. But there were too many moments when I found myself trying to decide which author he thought he was channeling. This could have worked as a short story, the elements were there but the execution was too labored and I found myself drifting and skimming. Maybe I just don't appreciate attempts at being "literary" enough to enjoy this novel. Or maybe the author was trying too hard to reach that lofty goal of "literary" and just couldn't get there with this story. Or maybe be he and I were just not the right combination of author and reader.

Reader meets author... but in the end the love is really only the author's for himself.

It's hard sometimes to decide where a review should start, especially when I've read a good book and I'm yearning to tell someone all about it. The book encompasses so much, and I don't want to leave anything out, but I don't want to give the good parts away either. That's exactly how I feel about Will Entrekin's new novel, Meets Girl.

It's a love story, but not a typical love story. It's boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl, but said girl doesn't love boy back. Quite literally. I think the narrator even tells the reader those exact sentences early on. So now what?

We should start at the beginning, right? Once upon a time... Cliché? Yep. But as the book suggests, what are clichés good for if we don't use them? The book actually begins with the one sentence: Once upon a time I fell in love with a girl who didn't love me in return. From there, our narrator spends much of the beginning of the book addressing the reader directly, romanticizing those four little words and the importance of the fairy tales they often introduce where the guy usually gets the girl.

From there, the book takes the reader through the journey of how said boy met girl. The girl happens to be Veronica Sawyer, the sister of best friend Tom Sawyer. Does that name sound familiar? Our narrator, Boy, remains anonymous. And since "Boy" and Veronica sort of grew up together, we traipse through their high school and college years quickly until we get to Boy working a temp job in New York and dreaming of writing the next great American novel.

With a little pep talk from Veronica, he sits down and pounds out the novel - a time travel piece - in two weeks and presents the manuscript to her as a Christmas gift.

"I always fault writers for being loquacious," the main character says at some point, and I think that the author is laughing at himself a bit here. "Meets Girl" is a novel that loves to play with words, and while there are places where I think that Entrekin is too much in love with the "sound" of his own narrative voice, the story overall is well-written and well-crafted, and tells a compelling story. I cared about what happened to the protagonist, and found myself rooting for him. The ending is a bit unusual and didn't quite give resolution to the story, but it made me think and I suspect I'll get more out of it on my second read.

Oh. Wow. An immediate favorite. I easily and happily finished this book in one sitting. Finally an original play on the tired old romance novel.
