Aristotle Angel je najstnik, ki se še išče. Težave mu povzročajo tako starši, ki brata ne omenjajo, kakor da bi bil mrtev. Spopada pa se tudi z ostalimi težavami, ki so del odraščanja. Nato pa spozna Danteja. Vrstnika, ki prav tako išče svoj prostor pod soncem. Takoj se spoprijateljita in skupaj odkrivata skrivnosti vesolja.


 

Knjiga ima čudovito naslovnico in po spletu krožijo same dobre besede o njej. Vedela sem, da sodi v žanr LGBT, ker pa še nikoli nisem brala knjige, ki bi sodila v ta žanr nisem vedela kaj pričakovati. Nekako sem imela kar strah pred branjem tovrstne knjige, ampak za prazen nič.

Prebrala sem jo hitro, čeprav obravnava bolj 'težke' teme. Že na začetku ugotoviš, da je Ari drugačen, za nekatere je čudak. Potem pa je spoznal Danteja.


That afternoon, I learned two new words. ''Inscrutable.'' And ''friend''.


Dante je super: svojevrsten karakter, s posebnim smislom za humor, ki pa je meni povsem razumljiv haha. Navdušil pa me je tudi s svojimi nenavadnimi idejami, pa še na vsak zakaj je poznal zato. Lahko bi rekla, da je moja sorodna duša. Dante je bil že od samega začetka na dobri poti, da odkrije skrivnosti vesolja. Ari, pa ne tako zelo.

Two guys without a life? How much fun could that be?



Zgodba me je navdušila, razmišljala sem že tudi, da bi si jo kupila. No, potem pa se je zgodila nesreča in poletje se je končalo. Dante se je odselil. Mi pa smo ostali z vedno jeznim in razmišljujočim Arijem. Njemu se v življenju ni nič dogajalo, to pa res ni zanimivo brati.

''Don't you have hobbies?''
''Sure. Staring at the blank walls.''



Tu se je moje navdušenje na knjigo v trenutku končalo.

Nato se po letu dni Dante vrne, vendar to ni bil več moj stari Dante. Knjiga mi ni bila več zanimiva, vendar sem se potrudila in jo prebrala do konca. Dante kmalu ugotovi svojo skrivnost vesolja, Ari pa za to potrebuje več časa.

Knjiga na lep način predstavi odraščanja in kaj se zgodi, če se namesto z dekleti raje poljubljaš s fanti.



 

                                                                                                                                                                             

The problem with my life was that it was someone else's idea.

But what really bugged the living crap out of me was thta my mother had more friends than I did. How sad was that?

Sometimes when people talk, they don’t always tell the truth.

He seemed like a man who was in love with being alive.

I got to thinking that poems were like people. Some people you got right off the bat. Some people you didn't get-and never would get.

When you do something, you have to know exactly what are you doing.

''You're the only kid in the entire universe who could come up with game as an excuse to beat the holy crap out of his tennis shoes.

Birds exist to teach us things about the sky.

Different boys lived by different rules.

From what we cannot hold the stars are made.

I don't always have to understand the people I love.

''Where did you come from? ''My parents had sex one night.''

''What position am I applying for?'' ''Best friend.'' ''I thought I already had the job.'' ''Don't be so sure, you arrogant son of a bitch.''

Smiles are like that. They come and go.

Change is overrated.

Sometimes, all you have to do is tell people the truth. The won't believe you. After that, they'll leave you alone.

Mom, I'm your son, not a suggestion box.

I think I should get a life.

I always wound up getting into these conversations with my mother that I didn't want to have.

My mom is an elephant when it comes to remembering.

''Life,'' I said.'' Work. Shit. Ecotone.''

''I don't get you.'' ''I don't get myself either.''

We don't always make the right decisions. We do the best we can.

I wondered if all boys had that darkness inside them.

Everybody needs a friend.

I've always wanted to be weird in a good way.

We all fight our own private wars.

 

Pa ti si jo že prebrala? Kako se ti je zdela?
