I have to apologize ahead of time (no pun intended) because I have a feeling I'm not going to make sense mainly because I am confused. We know from the beginning that the bulk of the book is a fictional movie based on some autobiographical details from Greg and Aaron's life. That was all good and fine and I was engrossed in their movie story so much so that the book lost me in the end when Greg and Aaron picked apart the movie and I was left wondering well, what really happened??? Characters were changed around, some of them didn't even exist but were integral to the movie. (view spoiler) Events were also changed radically and they made Greg seem self serving more than anything. Greg's explanation to that was that the movie would've been boring otherwise. Huh, OK....What further confused me is that we get Aaron's POV throughout the movie but when we get his reactions while watching the movie, Aaron himself questions a lot of the details.

I did like the book, the writing and I did like their story. I think I would've enjoyed it more if I would've just read the movie part of the story. The connection I had to Greg and Aaron was cut at the end when I didn't know what was what. I just had to accept that if nothing else the FEELINGS were real and at least that left me with a good feeling. Kassas's review is much more detailed and...coherent. Check that one out if you feel as confused reading this review as I felt after reading the book.
