Book Review: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, by Jesse Andrews

Me and Earl and the Dying GirlMe and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was really, really weird.

Good stuff: The main character was likeable in a nerdy way. More loveable, really. Kind of cute and cuddly but dorky, too. He was such a mess, so sloppy and real. Such a normal, kind of pathetic, guy. I really liked him. And Earl, his film-making companion. All the characters were great, really.

And it was sad.

The other stuff: It did get kind of annoying how self-deprecating Greg was. The way he talked to the reader (if you're still reading this...) was annoying.

But overall, this was a pretty great, surprisingly funny and real book.

Recommended for age 16+ due to a LOT of language and extremely crude sexual banter and graphic descriptions.
