Review: The Spectacular Now

The Spectacular Now
The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m giving this 5 stars because I loved loved the book and even though I’m someone that enjoys an ending that isn’t nice and tidy (ie. The Sopranos) I still think there could have been a little more substance in the ending.

[I have a spoiler part in this section but you can read it if you want in my goodreads review]

I’m giving it 5 stars because I fell in love with the story and with Sutter himself, he was a fantastic character full of life and complexity. I think if I could have I would have given this a 4.5 but I couldn’t and I just couldn’t give this a 4, it was too good for that. While I loved Sutter I also thought Amy was a fantastic character and all the other characters too. This story was very rich and full of life, just the story I needed right now. I am actually looking forward to seeing how the movie comes out, the trailer shows a lot of potential. I’m glad they picked a guy who isn’t well known instead of some Teen Beat kind of guy.

I am sitting here missing Sutter though, there never seems to be enough of him.

Cheers Sutter!
