This book's/short story's main character/hero is one of the most repulsive humans I've met in fiction and yet he's also unbearably sweet and it makes no sense whatsoever. I should loathe him and his actions but I don't. I genuinely liked him despite his flaws. I wanted to know more about him, his actions, his feelings, his life in general. So if you're not really into the story in first chapter, do continue and you may still fall head over heels in love with this story in the following chapters.
Despite the fact that Noah was the character most people should actually relate to instead of Oscar, he's not as interesting a character in my eyes. But I did want to know more about him as well. It's just that Oscar was more interesting and he intrigued me more than Noah did. I bet a lot of the readers will love Noah as well. :)
I am now definitely intrigued about Trevor's other works.
And then his trollish wallowing changed. Because he changed. Because he was a little less dirty inside. And then, he was on the way to being clean. Because of Noah, and Jeremy, and love really.
But what an awful person he was. Horrible. Just know that there are lots of feelz here for our Oscar. And consequently for our reader. My significant other interrupted my reading to tell me I was smiling. Of all the things, smiling while reading. Damn you, Oscar and Noah!
Read this, just have some antibacterial wipes at the ready. Maybe some bleach. I’m gonna shower.
Sera Trevor shows why someone might find some sort of twisted comfort in being an online troll. Oscar has reasons for not caring about his surroundings and not being able to imagine a happy future for himself, reasons which are revealed gradually throughout the book as sweet natured Noah gets under his skin. And of course Oscar starts to change, although it's not all smooth sailing.
This relatively short book is thoughtfully constructed and beautifully paced, with the developing romance between Oscar and Noah being just one element of it. Oscar's relationships with his family and with his best friend Jeremy (who has his own problems) play important roles in the story. The prose is smooth and the dialogue convincing. The author packs a lot into this book but nothing feels rushed or crammed in for the sake of it.
At the end of the book I was a well-satisfied reader and I think most other people will be too.
Details of daily life helped. I loved seeing the characters share a food culture, even one full of junk food and common allergens. Food served as the most common sign of affection. As someone who must avoid eating any of the food mentioned in this story, I was also acutely aware of how much a part food played. All the mentions of Febreze and dryer sheets represented that both whisperers that have more to learn about living clean and healthy. None of the characters are perfect, with spotless histories. That's what made them believable.
At times, the story cut too close to my own wounds--not just because of food. Family issues. Depression. The white cover seemed too airy until the hopeful end.
