Description

But I’m more troubled by the sheen of panic found within the novel: Girl Crush is trying valiantly to be so many different things for its readers, and it feels like it’s fighting the slickness of its marketing. With the help of her best friend Rose (non-binary cafe owner and queer guru) she begins to discover queer sex and dating. This book had so much promise but it didn't deliver as tried to have multiple plotlines and topics but sadly became so thin but can see what the author was trying but did like the dark satire on social media though.

This novel does not know what it wants to be: For a book about social media, what will happen and why the author crafts the story like that is way too apparent - we already know all that. She makes a messy, drunk confessional video and posts it on Wonderland, the social app that everyone is plugged into obsessively, and it goes viral. I couldn't connect with any of the other characters though, I didn't feel any emotion towards them, and I didn't feel drawn into their storylines.The plot was unhinged, the characters lacked any sort of depth and substance, the weird Director’s Note device felt shoehorned in a desperate attempt to make the preceding chapter make any sort of sense and the ending was an absolute dumpster fire which reeked of closing deadlines with no real plan or structure in place to bring the story to a close.

Prepare yourself for a dark trip down a rabbit hole of sexual politics as we follow Eartha’s journey to internet fame on the social platform of ‘Wonderland’. If we had to witness Eartha dealing with biphobia in relationships, why wasn’t Rose having any problems? She grew up in Plymouth and attended London College of Fashion, after which she went on to pursue art and writing.

The only problem is that in the attempt, Given made those themes more prevalent than necessary and didn’t leave a good taste in my mouth. Erst im Juni habe ich mein erstes Buch der Autorin gelesen, die dafür ja auch sehr gehyped wurde: "Frauen schulden dir gar nichts. Wonderland’ is a dystopian nightmare app where people can ‘plug in’ for hours and create better, hotter avatars of themselves.

It addresses hugely important issues and perhaps it’s my lack of knowledge on the themes that made the ending a bit confusing for me. Eventually, Eartha realises that if she wants to be herself again, she needs to destroy her online persona. although i think this book is particularly weak, i will say that i had a blast reading it because of how funny i found it. There are even spelling mistakes (an 'aisle' in the supermarket is spelt 'isle', for instance - hello, proofreader?The bestselling LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between: this is the fifth volume of the Heartstopper series.
