Dom suggested a book to me over a year ago, The Fault In Our Stars
. He kinda knows what he's doing when it comes to books, so I read it. Honestly, I wasn't that impressed with it. (Ack, don't hurt me!) The teenage voices just seemed WAAAAAAY too mature to be believable. It took away from the story.
Like Dawson's Creek. You remember that crappy show? What teenager thinks like that? Acts like that? Talks like that??! No teenager I have ever met. Ever... And I went to prom a few months ago, so before you get on your 'Emily isn't a teenager' platform, know that I am immature enough to seriously hang with teeny boppers.
You, of course, are entitled to your own opinion. You should blog about it. ;-)
But, ha ha, this is my blog. Therefore my opinion. The book was lame.
But... BUT... Darling loves, TFIOS has done something to me that I haven't done SINCE I was a teenager, and that is listen to a soundtrack. This song is fan freaking tastic.
It's catchy. It's got a phat beat, (as Jeremy would say.) It's sung by a chick that looks like Lorde and sounds like Gwen Stefani. And, in an ironic twist, she's wearing bitchin' chokers from the 90s. (My era, ya'll.)
This song, it's my new favorite.
So can we still be friends if I hate the book but like the music from the movie? I hope so.
And Dom, if you're reading this, I'm sorry I think your recommendation was blah. I still love you and trust you. And think you have pretty eyes.
