Description

I love how nowadays a cover with two cute gay boys on it is seen as a major selling point rather than an obstacle. is one of my favourite authors, and I have loved all of his books, especially The Outrage and Killing Jericho. This is a heartfelt (pun intended), heart warming (sorry I'll stop), heart wrenching (okay I'm done for real) story of self-esteem, courage, achievement, friendship, and above all, love. The whole foreshadowing of what was going to happen was all very much in your face which kind of ruined the reading experience for me as I pretty much was reading waiting for my expectations to be met and they eventually were. This did fall into the same problem that I've had with other gay romance books, in that Jesse chased a guy who was so obviously unsuitable for him, while the obvious final love interest had to wait for him to notice him until a few chapters off the end.

What made me most upset was that Jesse did not deserve to be treated the way that a vast majority of the characters treated him at one point or another. The man is a master of his craft and creates such beautifully written novels full of heart (excuse the pun) love and drama, making them hard to put down.

I listened to the audiobook version of this story, narrated by Chris Nelson, who delivered an exceptional performance bringing these wonderful characters to life.

In both books the main characters feel like they are missing a huge part of the story and are they desperate to find out what's happening. And his latest book, Broken Hearts and Zombie Parts, is a rom-com about a boy who needs an open heart operation. I loved it being framed from the plot device of a scar from life-saving surgery, something I have never really seen as the focus / driving emotional force of a novel. The English audiobook picked up the mood of the story perfectly and Chris Nelson gave Jesse and everyone else so much character that I fell a little in love with his voice. Which sounds a little weird maybe, seeing as the book deals with the MC's upcoming open heart surgery, but the book doesn't feel heavy at all.My one gripe is that there is some miscommunication which went on for too long and I found a bit annoying, but it didn't take too much away from my enjoyment. I particularly appreciated the focus on body insecurity and how challenging it can be when you don’t look a way that society deems as attractive. Ich weiß nicht, was ich noch sagen soll, außer, dass meine Erwartungen bei weitem übertroffen wurden. And while he is scared about the operation, what worries him most is the scar he'll be left with and that no one will ever find him attractive because of it. Yet another triumph from William Hussey, one of the most powerful and important voices we have in YA right now.

A Big Gay Rom-Zom-Com with Heart: Sex Education meets Love, Simon - with fake zombies - in this savagely funny gay YA romance about body image, self-acceptance and falling in love. The problem is, he has a heart condition that will put him under a knife in 2 months, so time is of the essence. Before filming even begins Jesse has heart complications after witnessing his best friend Cas kissing someone that isn’t his girlfriend, being caught and then threatened by the girlfriends brother. The characters were great and lovely, the start of the book was very good and the writing was alright! Das ganze Buch ist in der Ich-Perspektive geschrieben und gibt einen wundervollen Einblick in das Leben des Jungen, den wir begleiten.But Hussey skillfully weaves in a more serious undercurrent, while still keeping the overall tone light, and doesn't overlook the challenges faced by young LGBTQ+ people today. It was just so heart-warming and emotionally touching, and was exactly what I needed from a book right now.

It was for me predictable at times and I knew certain things from the get go but I still enjoyed the ride and getting to know the characters on a deeper level. It’s full of great characters with real depth, covers important issues like heart surgery, body image, this ‘Big-Gay-Zom-Rom-Com’ isn’t just a light fluffy read, it’s as full as depth and character as Jesse is. relatable depictions of self image/ confidence and body positivity , loving your body can be hard especially for teenagers and i just loved how this book presented that but also pushed the important message of ; scars are beautiful and so are we as people !He didn’t sound unlike actor Tom Holland, if truth be told, with a youthful and playful quality to his voice that played well with the characters at hand. I knew this would be different in terms of genre, but I was delighted to see that his ability to craft three dimensional, emotional characters was just as strong in “Broken Hearts and Zombie Parts”.
