The Spectacular Now, Review

24 Apr

The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp

Plot: This book follows a boy named Sutter in his last year of high school. Always the life of the party and hardly ever without a drink in hand, he finds himself in quite a predicament after having a falling out with his girlfriend. He wakes up on a lawn with no idea where his car is and a girl he doesn’t know peering into his eyes.

Sutter and Aimee strike up an unlikely friendship that nobody could understand. What will happen as the end of the school year approaches?

This book is also a movie starring Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller. Read the book before you see the movie!

Would you recommend this book? Yes. However, the ending was not what I was expecting.

4 stars
