Book Review - Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
Most Read Features
Hello Everyone! I loved this book! All of the love, hysterics and depth that is in the book is in the movie, and for those who do not wish to read the rest of this article with spoilers, the book is a identical to the movie except for the end. Personally, I actually find myself liking the end of the movie rather than the book. The novel is very choice.
Our Exposition columns offer informed, compelling takes on issues around the movies, from opinions about the topics driving films today to reconsiderations of the movies of yesteryear. Or after. A little more than a month after returning to sea level, I learned my dad had a Grade IV brain tumor. The world is little but a mechanism to advance his narrative—to make him a better filmmaker, to make him a better friend, and perhaps to get him into the college of his choice. Everyone else in the movie might as well be dead by the end of it, too, for all their individual destinies matter in the grand scheme of things. Gomez-Rejon has erected a gleaming shrine to adolescent narcissism. Greg has a pathological need to be simultaneously ubiquitous and invisible.
Book vs Movie: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
This book is where Greg documents what happened to him during his senior year when his mother forces him to socialise with his sort-of ex-girlfriend Rachel, who has just been diagnosed with leukaemia. There was no soppy professing of undying love or magical journeys; it was just teenagers being teenagers in hard circumstances. One thing I loved about Me and Earl was the way it completely refused to live up to stereotypes. Whereas most books, especially YA, about similar circumstances would have made it melodramatic and cringe worthy, Andrews seemed to underplay everything. As funny as this book is, it is also very, very sad. So although I laughed constantly throughout this book at the end I cried floods of tears.
I mean, the depressing truth about what happens in the story is right there in the title. So since I liked the movie so much I decided to read the book. I found them infinitely more interesting in the movie, probably because they took up like half the amount of time. One thing I really appreciated about the book was how honest Greg is. No hidden messages beyond that.
