    One thought on “Umiruća, Erl i ja”

    1. “If after reading this book you come to my home and brutally murder me, I do not blame you.” I know this is an awful thing to say, but I am so tired of all the "illness romance" books we've seen since The Fault in Our Stars. They're so hung up on leaving the reader with a beautiful message about life and/or death, so intent on making you cry and showing how a person can gain a new outlook or fall in love from being close to someone with a terminal illness. In real life, very few people are l [...]

    2. This book was HILARIOUS. I was cracking up laughing literally every other page or so. I loved the characters, I loved the unique formatting (there were lists and screenplay excerpts and the way the main character addressed the reader--it was very different, and very cool) and again, I LOVED the humor! I didn't feel like the plot/story arc was super strong, but honestly this book was so freaking funny and entertaining, I didn't really mind.And I am so pumped for the movie! I can't wait to see how [...]

    3. re-read (again) in June 2015Awesome sauce. Teared up when shit got real and Earl told Greg what's what (as always). This movie is going to slay me. upon reading for the first time Oh my goodness What did I just read? I finally have a gif to describe my feelsHere it is, folks: youtube/watch?v=Y3e_2

    4. Overall a great read. Jesse Andrews needs to release more books! My full review can be found here:youtube/watch?v=t_9lbe

    5. Umm… I don't know exactly what to say about this book. It seems to me like one of those cult books where if you love it, you love it, but if you don't, you don't. There were parts of it that were funny, but the majority of the parts that I felt were meant to be funny just fell flat. The cover is absolutely beautiful and there were some parts that I definitely enjoyed… but, it just didn't do it for me. This book is about Greg and Earl and Rachel. Greg is a high school senior and he and Earl a [...]

    6. It’s rare for me not to know what to say about a book. And I guess I do know what to say about this one, but my thoughts are very different from other people, so just keep in mind that we all perceive things, characters, scenes, etc. differently.Greg is a liar.A big, fat liar, he would correct me.From the beginning, he is lying to us. He says that his meeting Rachel who suffers from leukemia didn’t change anything inside him. He says he didn’t learn anything from this experience he lived a [...]

    7. a lot of people are commenting on this so i just wanted to add really quick loli read this book like 2 years ago but i was going through my 'read' list and noticed i gave this four stars which was weird because this book was shit so that's that

    8. Uhm. I didn't like one single part of this book. The humor was absolutely atrocious to me. I've heard people were constantly laughing throughout this book but my sense of humor is the exact opposite of this. I didn't crack a smile, if anything, I emitted loud sighs amid an almost constant stream of guffaws at the audacity of the book. The characters were either a) completely annoying or b) flat and therefore forgettable. Greg's narrating got on my nerves after about approximately five pages. His [...]

    9. The humor was crude just for the sake of being crude and I didn't laugh once. The main character is unlikeable in an attempt to make the book realistic, but in reality it was just annoying. This book tried so hard to be edgy and real Oh and don't even get me started on the fact that the girl had no agency and her illness was still used as a motivator for the male main character even though the book kept insisting that it "wasn't the usual cancer book". Spoiler alert: that's what every other shit [...]

    10. For this review I need to post a gif of Jesse Andrews kicking John Green's ass.But:* I don't know how to make gifs myself. I just steal them from other spots on Google.* I'm too lazy to even try and learn to make my own gifs. * I don't especially hate John Green (take that you haters) I read TFIOS and it was an okay book. Not very realistic to someone who has survived lived with teenagers.This book is about Greg Gaines. He just wants to make it through his last year of high-school. He knows not [...]

    11. I can appreciate snarky. And snarky certainly describes our narrator. The problem is, I can appreciate snarky when I like the character. I never grew to like Greg. And because I didn't like him or the story line, things like the excessive cussing in the book really bothered me. Had I liked or felt drawn to the characters, I could forgive that flaw. Heaven knows I can speak in language that would make my mother cringe and a sailor seem tame.I was so excited to find a book with an African American [...]

    12. This is the book I wish received more attention than The Fault in Our Stars. Unlike the aforementioned novel, it doesn't glamorize a terminal illness and try in any way to make light of the situation. In case that offends anyone, keep in mind that I did enjoy TFIOS, but I just think Me, Earl and the Dying Girl had a more powerful message.This isn't going to be a book for everyone. The protagonist is an anti-hero who will anger the reader and make you wish he were a real person just so you could [...]

    13. This is me during, hmm, let's see, 90% of this book:I kid you not. This book made me laugh my ASS OFF. I have never in my whole life laughed this much while reading a book. Jesse Andrews, for this alone, YOU ARE AWESOME.M&E&tDG is one of the weirdest books I've ever read. Nothing much really happens--in terms of both plot or character development--and despite that, driven alone by the MC, Greg's, humorous voice, the book ends up being an awesome read.Just to lay out how hilarious Greg's [...]

    14. Even though at the end of each chapter (and there are 40 chapters, plus an author's note and an epilogue), the narrator keeps nagging at the reader about how stupid this book is and how the reader will not learn anything, I on the contrary have an endless list to negate such claim. All of these things and more are what I learned from the book: 1. If the author through his main character keeps warning you to stop reading his "stupid book", by all means read it. Even if he tells you that you might [...]

    15. 4-4.5 stars Me and Earl and the Dying Girl: YA book #3 for me in 2016. It was a really good pick! Thank you to my bestie for suggesting we do this one on audio together! So before I get into this review, lets chat for a minute. Anyone who knows me knows I collect signed books. I have hundreds. It’s a problem (not really… but) Anyways, I was in a different city in a bookstore with my husband and in-laws. I’m texting Beverly and she’s all “Chris- see if they have hardback copies of this [...]

    16. This was a pretty freaking great book. I really enjoyed it and laughed out loud at a lot of parts. It's not your typical YA - or typical cancer story for that matter - and that's what I loved about it. READ IT.

    17. As seen on The ReadventurerMe and Earl and the Dying Girl was my second "cancer book" in as many months. Although both Jesse Andrews and John Green had the same intention - to write a story about cancer that was different from those other tearjerky novels, in my eyes, Andrews was much more successful at stepping away from melodrama and cliches of the genre than Green. Of course, Andrews does not (yet) have a publicity platform of Green's magnitude to promote his novel, so I am glad to be able to [...]

    18. EDIT 17/10/2016: I am so horrendously late to the party, but the movie is awesome. It keeps the humor and self-aware nature of the novel and adds just a pinch of poignancy to make it feel worthwhile. Because the book doesn't take itself seriously enough and I love that about it, but I also love how the producers tweaked it for a more mainstream audience. They're both brilliant on their own. Side mini-rant: How on earth did it gross less than The Fault in Our Stars? It's an outrage. (Original rev [...]

    19. An exchange.“I think I’m gonna go and read my book.”“Oh? Which book is it?”“Just this hilarious book about cancer.”And you should’ve seen the glare I received. Icyyyy. You see that is the problem I fear I’m going to have with this book. I want to run around wildly and throw this book at people and yell “READ IT!” and they’ll be like “Woah, Jo, what’s it about?! Tell me everything!”“IT’S AMAZING!!!!”“Is it, is it really?”“YES YES! WHY AREN’T YOU READING [...]

    20. 3.5 starsMe and Earl and the Dying Girl is a very strange book indeed. I’m sure some of you read the blurb and thought: Not another cancer book! Really, are books about teens with cancer the new black?! Yeah, I thought so too. It turns out that this book has very little to do with cancer. It has more to do with several other, completely unrelated things like filmmaking, high school social structure, odd friendships and nagging parents. It’s certainly not a sob story. The only tears I’d she [...]

    21. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/EDIT: I NEVER change my rating, but this one deserves all 5 and I don't know what assholery I was up to when I first reviewed it and knocked it down half a star. Also, THIS (buzzfeed/danieldalton/) was a thing a couple of weeks ago and Jesse Andrews already did it for realsies with Earl. Also #2, I used to write non-giffified reviews. How lame.Greg has managed to make it to his senior year by being an acquaintance to all and a friend to none one. When you [...]

    22. Such an unusual approach to this kind of story; a guy's reluctant friendship with a girl who's suffering with Leukemia, and while it should be a coming of age with some heartwarming scenes I spent most of the novel thinking he's a gigantic dick. And that just made it feel more real and understandable. That might seem like a strange sentence until you read the book.

    23. I enjoyed this book and thought it was really funny at times, but overall, it was kind of disappointing. I guess it was just a lot of hype, but I think it'll make a pretty good movie, and I'm really excited to see it when it comes out :)

    24. "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is crude, lewd, silly, heartbreaking, sweet, cynical, honest, and too smart for its own good. Probably one of the funniest YA novels I've had the pleasure of reading. I also recommend watching the movie. Actually, the movie is pretty tame compared to the book (a lot less profanity and sexual directness). Thomas Mann who plays Greg Gaines in the film knocks it out of the park! Holy hell, he's talented. Jesse Andrews is weird little writer (I like weirdoes) who doe [...]

    25. ☺ Edit 06/18 : The movie looks fantastic! Me want. Trailer▧ Impromptu reread because what's better than starting vacations laughing? ▧This is it. Second time I read it and my opinion didn't change. Yes this is immature at times but what did you expect? The teenagers here feel real. Don't wait for the big revelations, for the meaningful things these kids have to say, you'd be disappointed. Don't wait for The Great Romance, either. That's just LIFE and I adored it for its honesty.“It's lik [...]

    26. I'm so unbelievably torn right now. GAH. On one hand: this book made me laugh like nothing else. I can't even count the amount of times I literally laughed out loud. YES. OUT LOUD, PEOPLES! That is a strange phenomenon for this Vulcan. But, on the other hand: I have no idea what the point of this book is, and I hate dirty humour. It doesn't do anything for me. And as the book progressed, the humour just got scungier and I ended up actually disliking the narrator, Greg, a fair bit. I basically re [...]

    27. aw man. i'm really bummed about not COMPLETELY LOVING this book since i've heard so much praise for it. it was just okay for me. some of the time, the jokes landed and i'd be smiling while reading, but more often than not, the jokes didn't land. greg is very-much-super-aware of his own stupidity as he likes to remind you every other line, but that didn't really help much. (yikes that sounds mean i'm sorry)it's a creatively written book, which is something i can very much appreciate. jesse andrew [...]
