LOVED THE TITLE I LIKED THEthe title I liked the and the description sounded really interesting What I didn t know however was that I wasn t ust signing up for a fun read I was signing up for heartbreak and some really huge eye opening lessons Don t get me wrong The Catastrophic History of You and Me is often laugh out loud funny but that s not nearly all it is Brie Eagan s life was perfect she had a great family her three best friends and the most wonderful boyfriend a girl could wish for At least that s what she thought But days before her sweet sixteen her boyfriend Jacob uttered four horrible words that killed Brie on the spot I don t love you It would seem that a young and perfectly healthy person really can die of a broken heart It didn t matter that Brie s father is a famous cardiologist It didn t matter that she had so many other things to be happy about The shock and the hurt of Jacob s words were too much for Brie s heart to handle At the beginning of our story Brie opens her eyes to discover that she s indeed dead and currently existing in her own version of afterlife which ust happens to be her family s favorite pizza place Her company is even surprising especially the boy dressed exactly like Tom Cruise in Top Gun His name is Patrick and he immediately A River of Royal Blood (A River of Royal Blood, jumps at the chance to be Brie s guide through afterlife or at least this part of it He is kind thoughtful and the closest thing to an angel Brie is likely to meet As the two of them go back to observe the aftermath of her death Brie is forced to accept that her life wasn t nearly as perfect as she thought it was and slowly fight her way through five stages of grief Here sust a small taste of denial This is all Transnasal Endoscopic Skull Base and Brain Surgery just a bad dream I told myself I m totally in bed totally safe totally snuggled Hamloaf s next to me Jack s down the hall Everything is okayBut still why the crazy nightmare I must have eaten something funky Or maybe I have a history test coming up Or I d forgotten to flossIn my experience books that strike me the most are the ones that successfully mix humor and tragedy One of the recent stellar examples is Looking for Alaska Jess Rothenberg does this extraordinarily well She knows when to lighten the mood with aoke and when to stop with the humor entirely She knows exactly how much tragedy her reader can take and when it s time to water it down with one of Patrick s nicknames for Brie or something similar It is a valuable skill and one that pretty much guarantees that I ll read her next novel and the one after thatHere s another thing I should mention one I m pretty sure some of my friends will appreciate I won t be naming names though Seeing as Patrick had died in the 80s and he s dressed according to the fashion of 1983 or so every chapter is titled after a song a huge part of them from the 80s and there is a four page long playlist at the end of the book I played most of them while reading this book and felt like a lost time traveler most of the time but in a very good way An advanced copy of this book was kindly provided by the publisher PuffinRazorbill UK for review purposesFor this review and please visit The Nocturnal Library.

Ggen en ze blijft als geest op aarde Nu ze DW is Dood en Weg komt Brie erachter dat liefde veel ingewikkelder is dan ze ooit had gedacht In Half Moon Bay begint haar familie uit elkaar te vallen Haar beste vriend. SoI ll admit it from the get go this book started out sort of meh for me I was not really feeling it and I sort of found the heroine a bit whiny self absorbed and a little too vengeful and agressive for my taste My main complaints would be along these lines Don t blame the world for your problems honey dont udge and Sherman Tank Manual jump to conclusions and don t take your anger out on others BUT about a 3rd of my way into the book though things started to change The story got a hold of me I got invested in the characters that were coming alive on the pages and the story seemed to have depth than I initiallly thought and Iust wanted to keep on reading to see where this was all leading them and me since I was now fully on board with itThen towards the end at about the last 3rd or so of the book I was a lost cause The characters had shown some actual growth the story had unfolded itself beautifully even if on some aspects anticipated and I did not want the book to end which is a pretty good sign that a book has managed to really get a hold on meIt grew from a 3 to a 4 to a 5 star reading experience for me and knowing what I know now and if I were to re read it I doubt the beginning would seem like a 3 anyWithout saying too much i can say thisThis book is both sad funny sweet at points trivial at others deep with flawed characters that make mistakes but who learns and grows and are able to apologise and forgive who are both fighting change and embracing it and this book weaves it together beautifully and it left me not able to get it out of my mind not that I really wanted to even when the last page had been turned which is another one of those signs of a good reading experienceSo if that sounds like the sort of book you like to read I suggest you give it a try And if you do my only advice will be this have patience Sometimes you have to get to know people better to understand them and sometimes you have to give people including yourself time to evolve and struggle with things before they can be resolved A book well written well plotted and well told and I m surely coming back to read of Rothenbergs workSo let me ust end by saying this Fifteen is altogether way too young to die Especially to die of a broken heart So when sweet funny charming Brie is cut down in the prime of her teenage years what do we get Angst A heart warming Disney movie Well perhaps not what you expect It s than either The Catastrophic History of You and Me is brimming with humour and charm and tempered with a perfect balance of heartbreak Shortly before her sixteenth birthday Brie Eagan s boyfriend tells her he doesn t love her and she dies of a broken heart No not figuratively Her heart literally breaks in two within her chest True story Well the great pizza parlour in the sky NOT where she thought she d wind up And if she thought her afterlife couldn t get much weirder than sitting in a vinyl booth eating slices and drinking Sprite her tour guide to the afterlife is resident Lost Soul Patrick an irritating and slightly gorgeous mind reading boy straight out of the eighties complete with cheesy okes and Top Gun style bomber acket Yup Dying of a broken heart Just the beginning If Brie wants to find her happily ever after life she has to tackle the five stages of grief head on and let go of the life she s has to tackle the five stages of grief head on and let go of the life she s uite ready to leave behindThe Catastrophic History of You and Me feels like a contemporary and I suppose it is despite its paranormal twist But we re not talking about vampires and werewolves and supernatural beings we re talking about a normal girl a normal world and how on earth you come to terms with waking up dead Brie Like the Cheese I liked Brie immediately I loved her humor her go to your mom okes when she s lost for a comeback her chatty hyper voice and her constant Disney references She s a character you d have to try hard not to like She s layered and she has her own personality her own dreams her own aspirations She has real deep attachments to the people in her life her family her dog her incredibly close and beautiful circle of best friends It s watching her lose these seeing them fall apart with her gone then move on and all along knowing Brie must let go that is so so heart breaking to watchThis is her story make no mistake Her navigating denial anger bargaining sadness and acceptance and shining throughout It s wonderful to see a bright vibrant character as the star of their own show Whether Brie s learning to wish wishes are ust a matter of willpower in her heaven learning to zoom from her new plane to our own or plotting ghostly revenge against one time loved ones Even when she s lost to her anger or making terrible terrible choices in bargaining regardless of how selfless her motivations she s an amazing character She s compellingDeeper Down The Rabbit HoleThe Catastrophic History of You and s compellingDeeper Down The Rabbit HoleThe Catastrophic History of You and is a surprisingly complex story It flies effortlessly from Brie s longing for her old life to the grief of her family and friends left behind to the strange mechanics of the amazing magical purgatory she finds herself in On a few occasions I caught glimpses of the amazing magic of Dead Like Me or Annie s storyline in Being Human The detail the heartbreak the intensity and the fun all rang trueThe depth of the world and the secondary characters is extraordinary Each and every person in Brie s world is real and layered and explored in surprising detail Black and white villains become flawed characters I loved and forgave along with Brie Characters one in particular I was deeply in love with were hiding secrets subtly hinted at yet so artfully concealed and unravelled my unsuspecting heart cracked open and bled at their revelation So many minute tiny details come together to create a vividly imagined world coexisting in beside and ust beyond our ownVerdictSweet funny charming and Healing Earthquakes just a little bit heartbreaking The Catastrophic History of You and Me sucked me in and like it s protagonist stubbornly refused to let me go I strongly recommend having a box of tissues and a cuddly furry animal on standby while you readJess Rothenberg creates a magical uirky and beautiful world Despite the many tears I shed over the course of the book it s certainly not a sad book It s brimming with hope andoy and light moments shining through the darkness It s about coming to terms with loss but also about learning to treasure the past while embracing the future About learning to let go and live the Containing Contagion journey Because well to the well organized mind death is but the next great adventure Every time I read a boo. Sterven aan een gebroken hart is nog maar het begin Welkom in de eeuwigheidAls Brie wordt gedumpt door Jacob betekent dat het einde van haar wereld Letterlijk Alleen is Brie nog niet klaar om onder de zoden te li.
