Sobre o livro
Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university and Wren's decided she doesn't want to be one half of a pair any more - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath.
She's horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life. Without Wren Cath is completely on her own and totally outside her comfort zone. She's got a surly room-mate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words ...And she can't stop worrying about her dad, who's loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
Now Cath has to decide whether she's ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she's realizing that there's more to learn about love than she ever thought possible ...A love story about opening your heart by Rainbow Rowell, the New York Times bestselling author of ELEANOR & PARK - Fangirl now comes with special bonus material and available with either a green or pink cover. Which gorgeous cover will you receive? It's a lucky dip!
John Green, The New York Times Book Review
"This sexy, smart, tender romance thrums with punk rock and true love. Teen readers-not to mention their Gen X parents-will swoon for Eleanor & Park."
Gayle Forman, New York Times bestselling author of If "I Stay" and "Where She Went" "A breathless, achingly good read about love and outsiders."
Stephanie Perkins, author of "Anna and the French Kiss" and "Lola and the Boy Next Door"
Quando peguei em Fangirl, estava à espera de um romance contemporâneo fofinho e sem muita profundidade. O que eu encontrei foi algo totalmente diferente. A protagonista, Cath, sofre de ansiedade social. E ver uma personagem com defeitos tão reais e escritos de uma forma tão crua e verdadeira, é sinceramente refrescante. Num género em que estamos tão habituados a ler a típica angústia juvenil, ver problemas sérios e complexos a serem introduzidos, personagens com uma dinâmica tão diferente. Rowell cria uma história absolutamente fascinante, e é tão fácil vermo-nos na Cath, ou no Levi, ou na Wren, que se torna um livro muito próximo do nosso coração. Um dos meus contemporâneos favoritos de sempre. Aconselho a toda a gente.
Relatable and super cute
Let's just take a moment to think about how I probably added a new favourite author to my list. My heart is still skipping fast in my chest, my hands keep flailing, ok, I probably look like a lunatic, but guys, this is such a good book. FLUFFLY, that's how I'd describe Fangirl. First of all, I think I should mention that I grew up reading fanfics. I don't read fanfiction now, maybe because I'm always reading actual books but I have to admit there are some pretty good fanfics out there and I might look for on in the future to read. I miss them... Onto the actual book now! Fangirl made me remember those times and sometimes I saw myself in Cath's position. Cath is a complete fangirl for Simon Snow, a fictional fictional character in Fangirl. Btw, thanks for that, I actually went looking to see if the books mentioned were real books, expecting to start ordering them and BAM, they are not. I wanted to read them *sniff* *sniff* Well played Rainbow Rowell, well played. Fangirl is a simple book that's not that simple. It begins with Cath and Wren, her twin sister, moving to college and how they adapt to their new life. The only thing here is that we are used to crazy college stories and how they meet the hottest guy in campus and then we get some angst and in the end everything is well and okay. Well, forget that. In Fangirl, we get a nerdy girl (who acts a lot like me actually), her crazy roommate and how she struggles to meet new people, while writing fanfics about Simon Snow. Of course, there is romance in this book but it's slow and so cute. We don't get a perfect looking guy, we get a perfect gentleman! He has his flaws but is so damn gentle and arghh cute that you can't help but love him. And the way he never puts pressure on her, PERFECTION! Also, I want a boyfriend who wants me to read out loud just to pass that. I loved how Cath had some academic problems as well, making friends that turned to be not what she expected, this all made the novel more realistic. But I think that what I loved the most is how Cath reacted to a certain family problem. Her mother left when she was eight and now wanted to reconnect again. But she doesn't accept that and well, you'll have to read the novel to find out what happens. I just think that it's amazing and it's the first time that I read about how one doesn't accept one back just because they're "family". Finally, someone had the guts to express what I feel, just because they are family by blood doesn't mean they are FAMILY. If they left you when you most needed them, fuck them. I love Rainbow Rowell for this, she doesn't talk bullshit in this book. However, I wanted to see more of her father. Their discussions were amazing and pure comedy and their interactions were hilarious. If you haven't read Fangirl what are you waiting for??? I'm already anxious to read Rainbow Rowell's other novels! (Also on my blog: https://chibireader.wordpress.com )
Trata-se da história da integração duma rapariga que vai para o 1º ano da universidade. A questão é que ela prefere estar sozinha no quarto a ler e a escrever, do que a socializar... E ter que partilhar uma quarto com uma estranha que aparenta não gostar dela, é uma revolução para o seu mundo contido. Adorei o livro e li-o avidamente!!!
Este livro é tão bom... É daqueles livros em que as personagens dizem aquilo que tu queres dizer e que tu nem notas que é ficção. Eu relacionei-me imenso com a personagem principal. Os diálogos estão muito bem feitos e a história em si é muito atual e real e, além disso, é bastante fácil de ler, já que tem um Inglês relativamente simples. O livro para mim vale sem dúvida 100 estrelas.
Ri bastante com este livro e diverti-me tanto que o li em apenas 2 dias! É fácil relacionar-mo-nos com as personagens e principalmente com a relação da Cath e do Levi. Este livro é uma boa prenda para adolescentes ou até quem sabe para quem, como a Cath vai começar um caminho no ensino universitário!
Adorei este livro, especialmente porque me consegui relacionar tanto com a Cath. Fez-me lembrar dos bons tempos quando eu comecei a ler Harry Potter e a escrever fanfiction :)
Adorei o livro principalmente pelas cenas bastantes divertido com o Levi. E consegue retratar exactamente o que é ser uma fangirl.
Eu adorei este livro. Relacionei-me muito com a personagem principal Cath e apaixonei-me pelo Levi. Eu ri-me muito também. Este livro inspirou-me a escrever mais e eu definitivamente recomendo a lerem este livro.
As personagens são tão reais, tal como a história! Uma das melhores leituras deste ano. Recomendo :D
Fantastic read! Loved it! The characters were really interesting and I could identify myself with Cath. It's also a very relatable story. Looking forward to reading more books by the author!
