Letztendlich sind wir dem Universum egal

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR by Booklist - Kirkus Reviews

Celebrate all the ways love makes us who we are with the romance that Entertainment Weekly calls "wise, wildly unique"--from the bestselling co-author of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist--about a teen who wakes up every morning in a different body, living a different life. Now a major motion picture!

Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.

There's never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It's all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin's girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with--day in, day out, day after day.

With his new novel, David Levithan, bestselling co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate readers as they begin to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A's world, as A and Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day.

"A story that is always alluring, oftentimes humorous and much like love itself-- splendorous." --Los Angeles Times

THOUGHTS:



Sometimes, authors get brilliant ideas, one that seems out of this world, new, and creative. A challenge of sorts to keep it fresh. David Leviathan had that brilliant idea and wrote it, pouring his words into something unique and special. I read that book, and it sucked.

Going into this book, I was curious about the story. I've had it on my shelf for a few years now, and though I had intended to read it, the book never caught my interest again. Since I'm currently doing the Reading Quest, this book fit one of the boxes so it pushed me to finally read it.

I didn't know what I was getting into. The synopsis, while telling, also came off as mysterious and I had no idea what this book was really about. But I gave it a shot, and here I go...



THE GOOD:

None. Literally, none at all.



THE BAD:

Let's begin...

A is Dr. Sam Beckett, who happens to be a quantum, a being that...

I wanted to like this so much more, but I was so disappointed with the ending. It's one thing to leave it open for interpretation, but I just felt left hanging. I did enjoy the idea of seeing life through so many different eyes.

The description of Every Day makes it sound like it will be nothing short of phenomenal. How disappointing that I should find it to be...like...kinda sorta ok-ish...with a couple nice moments...but more annoying moments than nice ones. Sorry (not sorry).

Presenting the simple yet effective like vs dislike lists!

I Liked:
1. The writing. I don't necessarily mean what was written but that it was written well and wasn't an elementary style.

2. The unique concept of waking up in a different body every day and having no "shell" of your own.

3. Some of the bodies A inhabits. I was, however, disappointed that as his/her obsession with Rhiannon grew, his/her details of the bodies he/she was in became less meaningful. Even so, I found myself unexpectedly crying over the part where A is in the body of the suicidal girl and goes to her Dad for help.

4. That I had an excuse to sing "Rhiannon" over and over.

I Disliked:
1. The lack of character development. For example, I truly could not understand A's obsession with Rhiannon. It wasn't that I thought she was a bad person/character, I just found her to be FLAT AS A DAMN BOARD (and I'm not talking about her chest size!). I couldn't buy into this abracadabra love.

2. A (as in the main character). I was nothing short of annoyed by the thoughts of A. I understand that A may be a little more wise than others that age because he/she has "been" so many different people, but they are still never older than the age he/she would really be. In this case - SIXTEEN. There is nothing more annoying than a preachy sixteen-year-old. Speaking of being preachy...

3. Levithan's tone itself is preachy as hell. I am pretty sure that if he tried to shove homosexual/cross-gender/etc. acceptance down my throat anymore, I was going to CHOKE. I am already absolutely accepting of these things and was still bothered by his approach.

4. That I couldn't get the song "Rhiannon" out of my head.

I was going to give this one 3 stars but felt that it was just ok, which Goodreads tells me is a measly 2 stars.

One of the first romances I’ve read that actually made me feel something.
