Definitely worth reading, because everything Raibow Rowell touches turns to gold. She's a true wordsmith, able with just only few pages show us something different.
The main charcters are super likable and cute. No insta-love, no abusive stalkerich creeper dudes. Just a cute,contemporary story that will leave you with this stupid "awwww" grin on your face.
My only complain is that it is not 96 pages, as it's stated. It's only about 60 pages long. 20% of that is a first preview chapter of a book that I have no intent of buying.
And also, I have no idea why the cover says that this is for older readers, because I found nothing shocking or inapropriate in it that would be not suitable for younger readers.
This 'book' is really a short story. The story it's self is sixty-two pages. The rest is the first chapter of another book by another author. So I'm going to make this review short and sweet.
Rainbow Rowell is one of my favorite authors. Although I am not a big short story reader, I wanted to read 'Kindred Spirits' because of that. It's basically about a girl name 'Elena' and her experience standing in line waiting for a 'Star Wars' movie but she gets in line like three days in advance and there are only two other people in line.
It follows a premise that I have often thought was interesting. Sometimes you meet people by happenstance and never see them again but for a short time they were a part of your life.
Also, this story is hilarious. I laughed every-time Elena's mother drove by I also loved the idea of 'line rules'. Although, it says on the cover, for 'older readers' this could also be a young adult story.
I love so many things about this quirky novella… The setting, which I found brilliant and true to life (having waited absurdly early for a show or two in my lifetime - I’m no stranger to the strangely empty line that forms when you arrive way too early for something). The characters, who were truly adorkable (I’m looking at you, Gabe. I’m looking at you.). And the seamless integration of Star Wars throughout the story.
It was a brilliant move to choose the latest Star Wars release as the cultural phenomenon Elena, Troy and Gabe rally around and band together over. I found myself laughing at some of the references, and my heart swelled with pride with Elena defended their fangirling without a single speck of shame. Fangirls (and boys) are awesome, and Rainbow Rowell is the QUEEN of portraying them accurately in all their fun, fierce and loyal charms.
This is a great novella for anyone who loved Fangirl or who just happens to be a Fangirl (or boy). It was totally worth ordering from the UK, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
This same talent is brilliantly showcased in "Kindred Spirits," a short story that, over the course of sixty-two pages, manages to have more character development than most sprawling, brick-sized novels. It's an unfair gift, really.
This is a story about three Star Wars geeks camping out in desolate line in front of an Omaha theater for the premiere of The Force Awakens. It is lovely, and it is charming, and it is so wonderful. I finished the book in one sitting, desperately wishing there was a full-length novel featuring these characters that I could immediately pick up. Heartwarming stuff.
