It was a cute fun read that focuses on the relationship of Libby and her best friend Mel's older brother Tony. The whole book spans about 15 years as we get to see them interact at different ages starting with the first time they meet when Libby is seven. The best part was the great chemistry and sexual tension between Libby and Tony throughout the book. However, imo, there were maybe one too many "misunderstandings" between them for why, on multiple occasions, they did not end up together.
I rely heavily on reviews when choosing a book, so I know how many people cannot stand bad editing. If this is you, I hate to say it, but you might want to skip this book. I read A LOT of self published stories and normally could care less about proper editing, grammar and punctuation but this book was definitely the exception. It was impossible to overlook with constant words missing, or extra words added and the mixing up of he and she. There was even one or two times when a sentence was so out of whack I never did figure out what it was supposed to say. I am in no way an expert on proper grammar (huge fan of spell check right here!) but it was too much even for me.
Overall I did enjoy the read and do not feel I wasted my time. I'll give the author another try but hopefully the next one is cleaned up.
Looking for an easy, breezy, summer read, I decided to give "Her Best Friend's Brother" a try. The concept and overall plot was a solid one...girl has crush on best friend's brother, best friend's brother has crush on girl...but beyond this, the story was disappointing. From the beginning, the text contained so many grammatical errors (beyond pronoun misuse and misspelled words) that it became distracting and difficult to follow at times. Word order was flipped, words were entirely omitted, etc... making my easy, breezy, summer read a challenging one for all the wrong reasons. The story started out strong, but around the midway point, it was difficult to determine whose perspective the story was being told from. Attempts to create tension between the two main characters (Tony and Libby) were weak at most points, and it was as if the author created subplots to support this tension. These subplots were then not well-developed. Overall, I was disappointed with the book and only finished it because I hate not finishing books!
My first thought is: THE GRAMMAR! WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE GRAMMAR?!? Okay, I'm in the ninth grade, and I use better punctuation than this book/the author of this book. I know I'm not great, and it's actually one of my weak points, but.... I can't even express how frustrating it is. The commas, quotation marks and periods are completely out of whack and make the book harder to understand. Note to author: You put commas between two complete sentences that are combined by a conjunction. It goes before the conjunction.
I have also noticed that the characters do not talk like normal teenagers. They do not use contractions as often as the normal person. <-- written like that. It is not always that bad, I have just noted it a few times.
For the first third of the book, the plot was decent. It kept you wondering what would happen, and it conveyed the emotions rather well.
I'm in the second third of the book, and the plot is getting a bit too jumpy. It vaguely goes to focusing more on Tony's emotions to focusing on Libby's emotions. It will go from eating pizza vaguely from Libby's point of view to Tony becoming a sex-craved animal back to eating pizza and then playing Ski-ball.
As I mentioned, I haven't finished the book. I want to because the storyline is good, but I might not because ... *sobs* it's just so frustrating!
When I first started reading it, and I saw how Tony and Libby felt about it, I knew they would be together. The only problems were themselves. If it wasn't one misunderstanding, it was another. It started to just get annoying. With a book that spans such a long time in years, it just seemed ridiculous.
Another problem I had with this book is that it was difficult to follow who was speaking. In other books I've read, when there is more than one first person point of view, it always tells you who the character is before starting the chapter. This book did not contain that. I was able to follow it, but it was still frustrating.
I honestly don't believe this books deserves the 4 star rating it has, and being as ratings weigh heavely on me as to whether or not buy the book, I'm agitated that I spent the money on this one.
