FREE DOWNLOAD ✓ Autoboyography Nths is an eternityIt turns out Tanner is only partly right four months is a long time After all it takes only one second for him to notice Sebastian Brother the Mormon prodigy who sold his own Seminar novel the year before and who now mentors the class And it takes less than a month for Tanner to fall completely in love with h. Okay I want to start out by saying that I know this book has been veryyyy important for a lot of people and that s rad But I had a lot of problems with it and it wasn t for me If this resonated with ya or anything maybe just don t read this review It s not going to make you happy my friend I promise ya thatSo now that we have that out of the way I say as if there s any way on god s great green earth I m not going to still get someone coming at me for thisI want to say that I strongly dislike this book in a harmless sort of way It didn t offend me or anything I don t feel the desire to roast it like I m a kiln and it s a shtty mug some first grader made but the clay is too lumpy and thick so it explodes and takes out like 8 other garbage pieces of ceramic with it I just didn t like it At all And das okay So if you re still considering yelling at me maybe don tAnyway I ll give you actual reasons now instead of just stating my feelings over and overThe main character of this book is bisexual which is Extremely Great This book follows the allegedly budding but actually like was born fully formed Benjamin Button style except instead of aging in reverse this relationship just crescendoes in sheer gross emotional drama relationship between a bisexual guy and a closeted gay guy That fact alone is tr s coolBut here is Something that I might get shit for saying I don t think the bisexual rep in this book is all that great Wait wait wait before you yell at me I am especially frightened today of the constantly present hypothetical of me getting yelled at a clarification Bisexual rep in general as a concept super super great The specific bisexual rep in this book kind of garbageFurther explanation through bullet points Sebastian Tanner s boyf is repeatedly unable to believe that Tanner is bi and pretty much assumes he s only into guys in spite of Tanner s stating otherwise This is shocker never really resolved I am going to say this next one caaaaaarefully because I don t want to seem like I m one of those people who s all You re not really bi because you re with a guy But this book doesn t do a lot of showing rather than telling that Tanner is bi and not gay It s said a lot but I m not convinced it s really an accurate portrayal of the feelings or experience To clarify it s a damaging stereotype that bi people have to prove their sexuality in any way or the concept that if a bi person is in a relationship with someone of the same sex they are then actually gay or vice versa But it s also damaging to think that when a bi person is in a relationship with someone of the same sex for example they are only at that moment attracted to people of their same sex They re still bi But the latter situation is something I see in this book This book tries to confront a lot of the stereotypes bi people face cool but in doing this has the people around Tanner be the bearers of these stereotypes potentially cool and they re never really corrected definitively not coolBut I am not extremely mad about this or anything People have different experiences and it s possible that some of this stuff could be accurate to someone s It just didn t feel like good rep for me which is distracting and really takes away from the book tbhhhhI hate that I just said tbhhhh You could just delete it then Emma and none of us would be the wiser I assume you are saying This is true and yet I can say with 97% certainty that that sentence and this series of explanatory sentences will be included in the final version of this review I live life on the edge guys You should know this by nowLet s talk about a small annoying thing before we talk about large annoying things All of the names in this book are WEIRD and BAD and I hate them Tanner Sebastian Autumn nickname Auddy Fck off Clive Levi Deacon Asher BRECKIN Even the normal names sound like aliens posing as high school students andor a Disney Channel TV show from the 90s that got canceled after one season Manny Eric Hailey McKenna DustinBut these stupid names are just the fa ade on an even stupider thing this book has maximum five characters There are genuinely one million names in it but do not be fooled because none of them have even a single line of dialogue Because not only is there instalove in this book there is some claustrophobic ass instalove my dear boy THIS ENTIRE BOOK FOLLOWS EXCLUSIVELY TANNER AS HE THINKS EXCLUSIVELY ABOUT SEBASTIAN AND OCCASIONALLY WE ARE FREED FROM OUR EMOTIONALLY TUMULTUOUS PRISON ONLY TO BE TOSSED INTO THE FRESH HELL THAT IS THE EMOTIONAL TURMOIL BETWEEN AUTUMN AND TANNERIt isa lotThis book also features a really annoying thing wherein it just states that characters are friends without actually showing it Don t lose your friendships with Manny and Eric says Sebastian s dad Um Manny is a warm acuaintance at best and I am pretty sure we hear exactly zero 0 lines of present day actual speaking from EricBut yeah sure cool whatever Because it s not like the actual developed read the characters make eye contact at any point in the story relationships are any better In fact they are worse because we have to spend time reading them If Sebastian and Tanner s relationship was like any of Tanner s non Autumn friendships based on just the single sentence Sebastian is my boyfriend one time my life would be significantly improvedLet s go through one by one and talk about why these relationships are trash shanties on goddamn garbage island1 Tanner and his parentsWe are supposed to like Tanner s parents because Tanner does They are Cool he says They are Supportive They are Loving Tanner s mom buys LGBT supporting bumper stickers And aprons What a proponent of social justiceMaybe it s just goddamn me sentenced to live out my remaining days on a desert island opinion of my own creation but Hey Tanner our bisexual son who just came out and is happy with his life here in California we are going to move to Mormon City USA and force you back in the closet because we re sooooo worriedddd and why are we going Yeah for my career thanks sm also I was a Mormon and I hated it and I m not going to let you be close to any Mormons even though we live in a town where there are Mormons than oxygen molecules and also I will not tell you anything ever about Mormonism for my whole life long except it s garbage central stay away And make sure you re comfortable with the pain and turmoil of hiding your identity from everyone you know once again palMr and Mrs Scott are not exactly getting my vote for parents of the goddamn year but what the hell do I know2 Tanner and HaileyThis isn t like Problematic or anything I just don t think the we re siblings and we hate each other approach is as cute and endearing as it seems like it s supposed to be here But again What the ever living fck do I know y know3 Tanner and SebastianUm Sebastian says some pretty messed up sht to Tanner under the pretense of hey this is really hard Which yes It s really hard to be Mormon and be gay Obviously I am not trying to diminish that But also hey isn t it prettyyyyy difficult to have a boyfriend who won t say he loves you and won t publicly show affection and you re actually not uite sure is even your boyfriend and in fact may not only abandon you but abandon the entire perception of your relationship as true and real at allAnyway In what is a recurring theme for this book that sht does not get resolved at all Sebastian shows up in a different state Sebastian and Tanner make out FinCompelling no4 Tanner and AutumnEven though this relationship is not the focus of the book it is totally the detritus on the sht sandwich that is the narrative as a wholeTanner and Autumn are best friends Autumn is in love with Tanner Tanner knows that Autumn is in love with him Tanner and Autumn made out once upon a blue moon but despite the tacit acknowledgment that that moment was hardcore a Big Fckin Deal for old Auddy Tanner never talks about it with her Autumn does not know Tanner is bi until probably halfway into the book She doesn t know he s dating Sebastian until well after that Tanner is incredibly physically affectionate and banter y and flirty with Autumn despite a it meaning nothing to him at least romantically and b it meaning a whole hell of a lot to her and causing her feelings for him to like fester or whateverBut This Is Not The Worst Part My FriendsThe worst part is a spoiler but I m not marking it because it sucksWhen Sebastian breaks up with Tanner one time out of several in yet another act of pointless stupid drama I don t care about Tanner heads on over to old Autumn s house despite like completely ignoring her so he could bone except not really because Mormonism Sebastian He cries or whateverAnd thenhekisses herAND AS IF THAT WERE NOT ENOUGH He takes her fcking virginityThere aren t enough U s in the world to complete the Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude I need to type right nowFURTHERMORESebastian kind of sort of begins apologizing only for Autumn to interrupt him say it was her fault and say that she took advantage of himWhat The Everliving fckTANNER DIDN T EVEN REMEMBER SHE WAS A VIRGIN HE WASN T EVEN ESPECIALLY CAREFUL OR ROMANTIC OR SAFE WHAT THE HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLAnd when Sebastian hears about this he s all ya ok i don t have the right to be upset you are always right Tanner we are some shtty ass constellations in the universe that is your stunning personality and charmGod you guys This freaking bookPLOT or lack thereofThe plot of this is actually just instalove Oh also another plot where it s just Sebastian writing a book that is literally just the actual events that are taking place Again I will sarcastically use the word compellingThis book is justreally hard to get through It s severely plotless as mentioned and sooooo emotional and dramatic and hand wringing all the time No comic relief No likable characters to lighten the mood Just four hundred pages of nonstop angstAnd as if the drama didn t feel pointless enough just because of how gratuitous it is That Is Not All Drama is either neatly sewn up in one exchange of dialogue or literally just abandoned Examples two girls from the class Sebastian and Tanner met in even tho Sebby boi is 19 and Tanny delite is 17 Seb s a voluntary TA for a goddamn high school overhear maybe Tanner talking about his relationship Tanner tortures us by talking about this nonstop for 20 pages and then it justdisappears Boom Bye No resolution on that sht I guess the Autumn s virginity thing She ignored Tanner s texts and calls for a weekend stayed home from school blasted angry musicgenerally gave all the signs of Intense Fury and then Tanner comes in and she s all no actually it was my fault let s move on this book s already way too long and my drama is taking up way too much potential Mormon drama space after being super in love with Tanner for years with us having to suffer through reminders every other page Autumn Just Stops Being In Love With Him Immediately after fcking him Which whaaaaat It s just suddenly Autumn has a boyfriend now btw Happily ever after Oh whatever don t pretend you actually gave a sht about her as a character anyway Which fair I didn t But that s no different from my feelings on literally every other character AUTUMN WAS SEEING SOMEONE AND IT S JUST NEVER MENTIONED AFTER A CERTAIN POINT Was she seeing him when she boned Tanner When did they break up What the hell happened prom is like a huge topic of discussion because this is a shtty contemporary set in a high school so of course There is even this huge dramatic moment when Tanner thinks Autumn is catching onto the Sebby dear thing and he goes I MGONNAASKSASHATOPROM Then literally two pages later he s like actually nvm and that s IT But also prom is never mentioned after a certain point Because this book suuuuuuuucks For realAnd then like everything else the ending just happens with no leadup No explanation No real sense of narrative structure or appropriate use of tension or whatever Because life is suffering and death will come for us all anywayOTHER STUFFThis whole book is from Tanner s perspective and then it changes to Sebastian s literally once at the end Okay Cool I do not care any WHO CARES ABOUT CONSISTENCY NOT ME I DON T HAVE THE CAPACITY TO GIVE A SINGULAR SHT AT THIS TIMEThere s a weird scene where Autumn is trying on revealing prom dresses to try to seduce Tanner or whatever and he s like criticizing her for showing skin BUT WHATEVER FOREVER AM I RIGHT TOTALLY TRY TO SAY WHAT GIRLS CAN AND CAN T WEAR YOU WILL NOT GET ANY RESISTANCE FROM ME BECAUSE FROM HERE ON OUT I AM FLOATING THROUGH LIFE BABYI do not want to talk about this anyBottom line extra half star for complex discussion of Mormonism Everything else is bad and I am again unsure of whether I read the same book as everyone else The Red Sabbath dislike this book in a harmless sort of way It From Friends to Lovers didn t offend me or anything I Christmas Cow Bells A Buttermilk Creek Mystery #1 don t feel the شکر تلخ desire to roast it like I m a kiln and it s a shtty mug some first grader made but the clay is too lumpy and thick so it explodes and takes out like 8 other garbage pieces of ceramic with it I just Folk Wines Cordials Brandies How to Make Them Along with the Pleasures of Their Lore didn t like it At all And Butchery of the Mountain Man das okay So if you re still considering yelling at me maybe The New Mom don tAnyway I ll give you actual reasons now instead of just stating my feelings over
