Oct 10, Gauri rated it did not like it Shelves: Or maybe she does. During a rather uncomfortable encounter in the bathroom, Rich informs Jeremy that he really needs to become cool, hinting at something that could help, but leaves before he can explain it further.
The entire book apart from the ending perhaps revolves around Jeremy completely changing himself trying to get laid. The main characters actually refers to a group of girls as “The Hot Girls” and they’re never developed beyond their hotness and as tools for the now-cool Jeremy to make out with.
It wasn’t bad, but if you are only ever going to read one Vizzini novel in your nore, make it It’s Kind of a Funny Story. Paperbackpages. In the musical, he’s a lot more respectful to women, which is refreshing.
Be More Chill by Ned Vizzini
Ray Vs the Meaning of Life. I really can’t put it down; it’s refreshing to read a young adult novel that’s a quick read, but still a thought-provoking, laugh-out-loud funny one. Alexine You will be disappointed by the book.
If you want a slightly more original conspiracy based YA book about microchips, you might want to check out Feed. As David Levithan put it: Articles needing nfd references from July All articles needing additional references Wikipedia articles needing rewrite from May All articles needing rewrite Articles with multiple maintenance issues.
Solid book, entertaining enough, my only complaint was it ended too abruptly, and I was expecting more. After the squip is in the brain of the uncool person, it feeds the person instructions on how to speak and act.
The first complaint I have to say is that the book doesn’t age very well. The reader is supposed to sympathize with Jeremy and to a lesser extent, Michael. More character development, more meaning??? It’s disgusting, yes, but this is how teenage boys acted, and some still do act this way. The squip changes his life–taking him from dud to stud in record ti Be More Chill follows the story of Jeremy Heere, a dorky theater-nerd who seems to spend all his time looking at porn and masturbating he that’s your hero folks!
But I have to say just the right thing. After failing to woo his crush with chocolate, he hears rumors of a new technology vizziji a “squip” a microcomputer that can make you cool or smarter or whatever you’re lacking. I didn’t like the endin Everyone says that you will be disappointed.
How unique is that? Another issue this book runs into is that though infidelity is dismissed when males commit it, girls are continuously and pervasively labeled “sluts” and “whores” and have every insult in the book thrown at them by both girls and boys.
BE MORE CHILL
Review quote “Vizzini anatomizes high school lust and social scheming without any condescending reassurance. Even though it seems great at first, things go badly and Jeremy leaves. Kijk hoe ze naar me luistert! One of my favorites included the death of Eminem. It’s kinda demotivating, because to me it seemed as if the main message is “be Cool or your life sucks”. Girls can read it only if they don’t get grossed out by the male sexual details chipl.
Had it not been for the musical, I probably would not have finished, let alone enjoyed, the book.
Be More Chill by Ned Vizzini Book Reviews
Beth Rodgers, Staff Reviewer. Jeremy Heere is a high school outcast with a crush on a beautiful girl, Christine, but of course he can never get the nerve to speak to her. This is the most vile and terrible book I have read in a long, long while. It never really answers just how important popularity is. I shelved the book as a “Favorite” because he truly spoke well about depression, but how wrong he is about other issues makes my stomach churn.
The way that mental health is treated is abhorrent. I know the author was young when he wrote this book. Jeremy Heere is your average high school dork.
Who the fuck cares? Was this review helpful to you?
Nee, hetgeen wat ik erg negatief vind aan dit verhaal, zijn vzizini handelingen van Jeremy, de Squip en in principe alle jongens. I ain’t playin’ ya! Anyone can post a reader review, so post yours today! It was so overdramatic it was hilarious. I also liked Jeremys best friend, Michael who is a big Weezer fan and also has a thing for Asian girls like Rivers Cuomo. We have all sorts of YABC buttons for your website.
