It affected me in much the same way as "Perks of a Wallflower" did, without making any kind of comparison between the books otherwise. It is YA and predictable, but oh, so relateable! Especially if you - like me - was rather immersed in the Harry Potter fandom when it was at its highest.
To be honest, the entire book pretty much reads like a Harry Potter fanfic - albeit one set in the 'real' world - but it works... it totally works. If you've never been... "occupied" by a particular fandom (a nice way of saying 'obsessed') parts of it may have you rolling your eyes, but I have been, and it is spot on.
Though I was somewhat frustrated by Cath at times, she always managed to make the right decisions in the end, and I absolutely LOVED Reagan and Levi. They were both obviously very good for her, in very different ways.
I would have liked to see "what happens next", but at the same time, I can understand why RR ended it where she did.
Incredibly charming story that has left me completely book-hungover. This is why I gave RR another chance after "Eleanor & Park"... in fact, this may even be better than "Landline"....more
