Description

I loved Jesse as a character, he was so relatable in his insecurities in an often fickle, body obsessed world and to see him grow was fantastic. Brilliant representation of up to the minute issues faced by both young and older people around body issues. Morgan was so relatable too, once again her love for performance but also how she views herself as not enough. My one gripe is that there is some miscommunication which went on for too long and I found a bit annoying, but it didn't take too much away from my enjoyment.

Jessie must face all these things, and the underlying equation between Jessie’s psychological battle and the zombie film he was making is beautifully done. The whole book is written in first person perspective and gives a wonderful insight into the life of the boy we accompany. This was just so much fun, I was expecting this and it didn’t disappoint at all, it delivered everything I wanted and more.Jesse Spark hat in wenigen Wochen eine Operation am offenen Herzen, die eine große Narbe auf seiner Brust hinterlassen wird. There were a couple of moments throughout the book where he either mispronounced or placed the stress on an odd part of a word or sentence, but other than that it was an excellent quality audiobook. The body image issues are very relevant and tie in well with the internet-driven prejudices about appearance that dominate teens and YAs thinking. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The English audiobook picked up the mood of the story perfectly and Chris Nelson gave Jesse and everyone else so much character that I fell a little in love with his voice.

If you are looking for something to finish off your Pride Month with, do not hesitate to pick this up. I found the “jokes” to be forced and completely uneeded , Like the whole sex dungeon thing at the beginning …. I’m not sure if it was the British-ness of the characters or what, but MC Jesse Spark reminded me a great deal of both Charlie Spring ( Heartstopper: Volume One) and Noah Grimes ( Noah Can't Even), who are two other gay teen characters I’ve adored in recent years.But more than that, it's also incredibly moving, dealing deftly with body dysmorphia and fears when approaching a major surgery/life-changing medical event. I knew this would be different in terms of genre, but I was delighted to see that his ability to craft three dimensional, emotional characters was just as strong in “Broken Hearts and Zombie Parts”. The plot points of the romance were predictable but very satisfying when they inevitably hit nonetheless. If you like audiobooks, you should definitely listen to this one, because what Chris Nelson has delivered here is perfect.

I've only ever read one other book of William Hussey (shame on me) and reading this book had me thinking about Hideous Beauty more than once. Aber nicht nur Jesse, auch all die anderen Charakter sind mir ins Herz gewachsen und ich bin sicher, das ich da nicht die Einzige bin. This is such a great read and deals with important issues about body image issues, medical conditions and general teen anxieties but handled in a sensitive way and keeping the humour throughout. It was so clever and so effective, especially knowing that it was directly from the author's own emotional experience. I'm also an enormous horror fan, so the continuous references to classic films made me a happy camper.

From the navigation of friendships through immense changes, including the end of high school but also the coming out of close friends, to what it simply means to grow up, this book puts its heart on the line for the story. I need to get myself to an event where he’s signing because I really need my proof signed to make it even more special than it already is.
