artsy musings of a bibliophile

I am 20-something years old and I love reading books that spark my interest. A bibliophile at heart with a constant desire to understand art, I am a nerdy owner of a curious soul.

Forget You

Forget You - Jennifer Echols I didn't know what to expect from Forget You or from the author, Jennifer Echols herself. But even if I did, they would have been met. The ever-conflicting mind of Zoey seemed to be too real to me. The way she kept going on and on about one thing, being so adamant to admit what was right in front of her. And just the feeling that she wanted to change something drastically about her life in order to be in control, struck close to home.

Jennifer Echols created an alternate universe where the protagonists were in real trouble with themselves. Doug was a layered character and he was torn between what he wanted and what he couldn't get. His reaction to Zoey's stubbornness about owing him said a lot about him.

Forget You was a beautiful book about Zoey coming to terms with her life. I liked her after-the-accident-evil-side and the way she chose to curse. Though her thinking process got annoyed at times, it fit well with her character and her self-consciousness. In all, I liked Jennifer Echols' writing style and I look forward to reading Going Too Far by her.
