In love too many times over the years to BUY INTO THAT OLD CANARD IT S A UESTION into
that old canard It s a uestion timing you know As if we all have old canard It s
uestion timing know As if we all have elaborate locks inside our hearts that are constantly changing shape and every once in a while someone happens along with the perfect key Love is nothing than a fortuitous collision of circumstances I strongly believe in this idea too and I just loved the way this was written and the way she thinks I also loved her metaphor about what it s like to age when she talked about the art allery painting How when you are born and you are standing closest tot he canvas and everything looks so big and overwhelming then as you Here There Be Witches grow older andain perspective you step back and see the bigger picture but then as you keep aging hundreds of years you Story of the Liberty Bell get further and further away form the canvas and it loses its magic the canvas representing life in this metaphor I just love this metaphor and I think it s so beautiful This is just a very raw real book about thoughtful interesting characters thatot me thinking It Fake Mustache got me thinking a lot about life and why we do what we do I loved Parker and Zelda as characters but I love the way this book makes me think even That s the reason why I enjoyed it so much because it s very thought provoking and makes me think about things like what s right and what s wrong and what is love anyway and what makes a life meaningful I loved it view spoilerI was sad to see Zelda jump off the bridge and kill herself at the end but I also appreciate the fact that it was very realistic and just because she has a few happy days with a young boy doesn t mean she s magicallyoing to be cured I m happy Zelda encouraged him to Desert Rose and Her Highfalutin Hog go to college and help himet over his Father s death and put his Mom in her place when it came to her alcohol problems and her ability to take care of Parker I also love how the entire book ended up being a response to an essay uestion and it totally reminded me of We Are The Ants in that way hide spoiler I stopped talking after my dad died I wrote then prepared myself for the usual things people said after I told them that What a remarkably asinine thing to do That was not one of the usual thingsI can predict right here and now what will be the one leading criticism for this book It will most likely be the defining factor in whether you will enjoy it or be annoyed And it all depends on whether you think Zelda falls into the manic pixie dream irl boxKirkus says no A few early reviewers have already said yes It s all about interpretation and my interpretation is that it doesn t really matter when you et to the end Because what Zelda may or may not be isn t what this clever little story is aboutI really enjoyed it I also liked Wallach s We All Looked Up because of the way he develops all his characters creating complex and flawed individuals that often test your ability to like them Parker s narrative voice is funny and cynical and there s a slight self deprecating tone to the whole novel that keeps it from becoming too serious and message drivenWallach writes about real teens something which is actually really rare These kids drink and swear watch porn and have sex nothing Hey Wait a Minute! Five Rough and Reluctant Sex Erotica Stories graphic though They re fucked up and yet this isn t part of a bigger life message There s something exceptionally honest about his writingBut most of all Thanks for the Trouble is soood because it is about the power of stories not truth The novel itself is Parke.

S book is like a breath of fresh air It s so different from anything I ve ever read This book follows 17 year old Parker It s so different from anything I ve ever read This book follows 17 year old Parker is a mute thief and he also happens to be Latino In order to communicate he carries around a journal with him at all times and he also enjoys writing stories in his journal One day while thieving at a hotel he comes across Zelda a silver haired irl who is immortal and doesn t age She has a huge stack of hundred dollar bills and he steals them from her but then he realizes he left his journal at the hotel so he has to Ethical Responsiveness and the Politics of Difference go back Parker and Zelda instantly form a bond and Zelda tells him she plans on jumping off the Golden Gate bridge I love the way the first chapter is written in third person as if Parker was trying to write a story about his life from third person and then he changes his mind and it changes to first person This story is written so beautifully and I love the way Parker views things and writes about the world Like the way he talks about his parents loving each other They loved each other like the ocean loves the shoreline eating away at it little by little day after day They loved each other like the sunlight that makes the plantsrow then scorches the leaves and bakes the moisture from the earth It s so beautiful Also I love how this book also talks about how there is a fine line between rightness and wrongness which is something I think about a lot I love the way Parker writes about it Rightness and wrongness are slippery concepts I mean some things are obviously shitty and some things are obviously NICE OR NOBLE OR WHATEVER BUT or noble or whatever but the two The scarecrow goalposts of black and white between punching a baby in the kidney and donating a kidney to save a baby there s a freaking football field worth ofray area It s just so honest and beautifully written I couldn t have said it better myselfI also really enjoyed how this book explored the idea that we lose the ability to be happy as we age It reminded me a lot of Forgive Me Leonard Peacock in that way Parker s voice and ideas were very similar to Leonard Peacock and they have a similar view of society How doing something for the first time is always Elizabeth Cady Stanton going to be happier and magical than doing it again any time after that And as weet older and we experience fewer things for the first time it automatically makes us less happy It also mentions this again when he says When change loses its magic then there in t really anything left to live for The most exciting part of living is looking forward to the future and changing in one way or another but in Zelda s case she has an everlasting future that s never ending and she ets To Watch All Her watch all her ones die over and over again and watch history repeat itself I love Parker s humor and his charm he is just so sweet and I want to ive him a hug I also really enjoyed his short stories that he wrote throughout the course of the novel They are so creative ad whimsical and fairy tale like I especially loved the second one about the boy who can smell death and fell in love with a silver haired The Doll and Her Friends (1893) girl I also loved the presence and atmosphere of San Francisco in this story I think Zelda is also a very thoughtful and interesting character and I enjoyed her interactions with Parker I especially liked when she said Why does anyone fall in love with anyone I don t believe we each have some single special person waiting for us out there if that s what you reetting at I ve been.
