The Catastrophic of You and Me

By graceann26 Aug 06, 2013 512 Words
he Catastrophic History of You and Me is about a girl who died of a broken heart. The concept immediately drew me in-a broken heart? Really? I just had to see what happened. I immediately knew that it was going to be a love story. Basically, the book starts out with Brie after death. She knows she died, but she's wondering why she's still on Earth. After her funeral and everything, she ends up at a pizza parlor. At the pizza parlor, there's a guy who introduces himself as Patrick. Patrick helps Brie go through the five stages of grief. He even helps her get revenge on Jacob, the guy who broke her heart. The entire story centers around Brie as she learns more about herself, her friends, and the guys in her life. Will she accept death?

Brie was such a great character. She didn't know as much about herself as she thought. I really loved how her memories were woven throughout the novel.

Patrick was probably my favorite character from the book. Brie really liked him because of the way he dressed, which I thought was cute. I really love how Patrick always called Brie by cheese nicknames. Patrick was just an all around great character, and I thought it was really cool how he was mysterious. We didn't find out much about him until towards the end.

Jacob was a pretty great side character. In the beginning, I really didn't like him along with Brie. I mean, he broke her heart! As time went on, I grew to love him and I began to realize why he broke up with Brie, and I began to accept it just as Brie did.

Can I just mention how good of a writer Jess Rothenberg is? I usually don't talk about writing in my reviews, though I feel the need to with this book. Her writing flowed wonderfully and I loved how funny she was. If I quoted all of my favorite quotes from this book, I'd be quoting just about the entire book. Just saying.

This book was utterly amazing. One of the coolest things was each chapter was a song title. It's really clever. I also liked how the book was separated into sections by the 5 stages of grief. As we grew nearer towards acceptance, I was getting scared as to what was going to happen. I got so into the book and I was getting really nervous for Brie and Patrick! This book may seem like a light and fluffy read, but it's actually darker than you'd think. Towards about 3/4 of the way in, the story began going a little sinister, which I really liked. The mystery aspect of the story was really great, because I love mysteries. If I think about it, this book is a mixture of contemporary, fantasy, and paranormal. It's really cool. Plus there's flying powers! I'd definitely suggest checking this book out if you haven't, because it's definitely worth it. I flew through it in a matter of days.
