Geography Club Esse livro tem quase todos os clich s de high school e isso n o me impediu de amar a hist ria um leitura super r pida o audiobook tem umas 6hrs , e muito divertida O plot tem um climinha gostoso de sess o da tarde, a narrativa divertida e eu amei os personagens.Esse livro foi publicado em 2003 H 13 anos n o existia a quantidade de YA LGBT que temos hoje, e dentro desse contexto, acho que Geography Club uma hist ria incr vel, apesar de super simples.Russel Middlebrook foium protagonista que cometeu uma s rie de cagadas ao longo da hist ria, mas eu adorei a maneira como o autor fez ele crescer, se desenvolver e aprender com os pr prios erros A maneira como o livro termina me deixou 100% satisfeito, e cheio de vontade de ler os pr ximos livros da s rie whatever, i m still allowed to read YA, get off my back, jeez A Modern Classic About A Group Of Teens Discovering Sexuality And Identity, Perfect For Fans Of Becky Albertalli, Adam Silvera, And David LevithanBrent Hartinger S Debut Novel Is A Fast Paced, Funny, And Trenchant Portrait Of Contemporary Teenagers Who May Not Learn Any Actual Geography, But Who Learn Plenty About The Treacherous Social Terrain Of High School And The Even Dangerous Landscape Of The Human HeartRussel Middlebrook Is Convinced He S The Only Gay Kid At Goodkind High School Then His Online Gay Chat Buddy Turns Out To Be None Other Than Kevin, The Popular But Closeted Star Of The School S Baseball TeamSoon Russel Meets Other Gay Students, Too There S His Best Friend Min, Who Reveals That She Is Bisexual, And Her Soccer Playing Girlfriend Terese Then There S Terese S Politically Active Friend, IkeBut How Can A Group Like This Get Together At School Without Drawing Attention To Themselves We Just Choose A Club That S So Boring, Nobody In Their Right Mind Would Ever In A Million Years Join It We Could Call It Geography Club Audible I m glad that I ve chosen an audio edition I don t really know, how an author makes a decision, who will narrate his her book, but if Brent Hartinger HAD to make this decision by himself he made the right one My first Josh Hurley as a narrator, and he is a perfect choice for this sweet, funny and enlightening YA novel about friendship, finding yourself, about first love, andcoming out It was better than watching a movie I lived inside the story Very enjoyable 5 hours La t pica historia de instituto americano con sus dramas de popularidad mezclado con personajes que no se animan a salir del cl set No es la gran genialidad ni aporta nada nuevo pero vaya que sirve para entretener bastante y drenar lecturas pesadas. 5 STARS I don t read a lot of Young Adult, but something about the description and the book cover intrigued me It reminded me of some of the TV shows I used to watch in my younger years Freaks and Geeks, My So Called Life, etc And I was not disappointed, I love love loved this book Told entirely from Russel Middlebrook s POV, this story is full of humor, wit and important life lessons I can t wait to read the rest of this series A good story, the characters has little emotion considering the subject, but I would recommend. Nothing spectacular or groundbreaking here It s filled with two dimensional characters and very special lessons But the MC isn t an asshole and it has a decent ending It s better than most YA, which isn t saying much I d recommend this for middle school students, but with all the talk about who s having sex, and who isn t having sex, I don t think they d care I wouldn t have cared And the writing is too juvenile for high schoolers despite the profanity If you re looking for something to bump of your book list, this is a quick read I finished it in less than two hours I might check out the sequel if I m bored Two Things I Didn t Like1 The Token Bitch Beard2 Sexist Closeted JocksFavorite Characters Min, Brian, and RusselRating 2.25 stars It s average It kind of reminds me of a Matt Christopher book, but with gay kids Despite that, it s much better than Totally Joe and The Vast Fields of Ordinary. It is my second read of this book I cried harder the second time We all lived in a world where being different is bad, ridiculed and not welcome I think it is a bit ironic that people keep telling us to be different, to think different But here we are getting shit for being different And that evensuck in high school where they say has the best memories but it is also where anyone can find themselves in a toughest situation And this book is about getting through that and also about friendship and finding new ones This book kind of amazing for me The writing and the plot will just suck you in and make you relate to the story I think Russel, being the one telling the story has a way of getting sympathy The readers can really connect with him And amazing job for Brent Hartinger.Pretty likable sub characters too Specially Min, Gunnar, and Brian They are well written for me and has good attributes I would also like to talk about Russel and Kevin Really teenage love It just make me, what is theappropriate term for giggle for males smile There was a scene in the book where Kevin kind of said that he like boys who takes risk and Russel want to do that, for Kevin For me that s okay But sometimes when we like someone, we want to be the person they like or want that in the process we started losing ourselves too For me, Russel made the right decision in the end But I am hopeful for the next book This is the kind of book that really makes me want to read YA chokengtitiktitikchokengs This book made me laugh too Here are the lines I love from this bookIf there was no such thing as forgiveness, there wouldn t be any friendships left in the world This from Russel Near the endGo on ahead I ll be okay A scene in the movie I found on tumblr This is kind of cute actually. Even the ugliest place in the world can be wonderful if you re there with good friends just like the most fabulous destination on earth is pretty boring when you re all alone This was an okay read I ve been wanting to read this for a long time but I ve tried to keep my expectations low I ve read some great LGBTQ books so far and they set the bar pretty high.So the protagonist, Russel, was plain He was not especially interesting or smart or brave or talented There were a few side characters that I really liked, especially Min and Brian But the rest was very normal Most of the time some of them actually annoyed me Russel made many stupid decisions, and kept repeating them It was frustrating.If you want to read this book and expect life tips on how it is to be gay, this will definitely let you down It s an easy and fast read but just nothing special.The plot was not that interesting or unusual either All in allGeography Clubwas pretty much average.Findof my books on Instagram


About the Author: Brent Hartinger

Brent Hartinger, and I live to write.For the last twenty years, I have made my living writing just about everything that involves words.My latest project is a trilogy of new adult novels called Russel Middlebrook The Futon Years They re about a gay guy in his twenties, Russel Middlebrook, trying to make sense out of love and life.The books in Russel Middlebrook The Futon Years are The Thing I Didn t Know I Didn t Know book 1 Barefoot in the City of Broken Dreams book 2 The Road to Amazing book 3 I wrote previously about this character in a young adult series called the Russel Middlebrook Series The first book in that series, my 2003 gay teen novel Geography Club, was adapted as a feature film in 2013, starring Scott Bakula, Marin Hinkle, Ana Gasteyer, Justin Deeley, and Nikki Blonsky.In order, the books in The Russel Middlebrook Series are Geography Club book 1 The Order of the Poison Oak book 2 Double Feature Attack of the Soul Sucking Brain Zombies Bride of the Soul Sucking Brain Zombies book 3 The Elephant of Surprise book 4 Two Thousand Pounds Per Square Inch a free short story For the record, I try hard to write books that people like to read The most frequent comment I get from readers is that my books are page turners, which makes me very happy, because that is exactly what I want them to be If I had to describe my own books, I would say, Strong central concept, strong plot, strong character and voice, and usually lots of humor I may not always succeed in creating these things, but they re what I always strive for My biggest complaint with books I hate is that they don t get to the point or, worse, they don t have a point I get frustrated that so many books have a cliche or overdone central concept, or that they re all atmosphere and world building or beautiful language, in the case of some literary novels with no real story.Basically, I see myself as a storyteller I think the important thing for a writer is to get out of the way and just tell the damn story.My second great love is screenwriting and playwriting I ve won lots of screenwriting awards and have several movie projects in very active development Meanwhile, my plays have been performed at dozens of theaters And I adapted Geography Club into a stage play, which has now been produced all over the country In addition, I m the co host of a bi weekly podcast, Media Carnivores, which covers media related news and opinion and also honest writing advice and updates on my career.I sometimes teach writing, in the MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Vermont College and elsewhere, and I m sometimes available as an editor for hire.And I also do a fair bit of charity work, including a brand new enterprise, The Real Story Safe Sex Project, using entertainment and pop culture to help gay teens and twentysomethings fight HIV AIDS.I live in Seattle, Washington, with my partner since 1992, Michael Jensen Michael is also a writer, the author of two terrific gay westerns, Frontiers, and its sequel, Firelands Together with our friend Sarah Warn, we co founded a very successful entertainment website called AfterElton.com that was eventually acquired by MTV Logo but we don t work there any.I answer all emails, so feel free to contact me through my website
