Cath is a Simon Snow fan.
Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…
But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.
Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.
Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?
And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
Fan Girl by Rainbow Rowell
Genre: YA/NA Contemporary
I still don’t know what to say, It was a huge disappointment.
I must say I am not a Fan of Fan Girl
There was so much hype everywhere, I expected a lot from this one. It was my first Rainbow Rowell book and I must say I am considering to delete all the other from my TBR.
Maybe It was not for my taste Whatever, It took 5 days to complete it which is the longest for any book this year.
Although I liked the writing style, the story was not able to impress me. I felt there were many flaws, Ending was unsatisfactory.
Both Cath and Wren were miserable. I didn’t feel for Cath/Wren at any point, I just couldn’t.
What happened to Wren/Jandro Relationship? not clear
Dad/Daughter relation was one of the positive things.
I didn’t get Laura’s character, her absence or presence doesn’t matter at any point in the story.
Cath’s fiction class story should get more space.
I don’t know about Carry On or bazz/Simon, but I must say for me they were the worst part of this book…I have never been a fan of vampire stuff, in start I tried to read but halfway through the book I skipped all the fan-fiction
I tried really hard to connect it, but nothing worked for me.
Levi’ and Regan’s characters were like a cool breeze on a hot day.
Or Maybe I just accept that It was not my type, I literally saw everywhere people drolling on Fangirl.
P.S I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feeling but also I can’t sugar-coat my review.
