Love, love and love. What I also like about her character is that she can handle things and issues by herself even though she’s a little childish at times. I shall try to tell you why. Who I loved more is Patrick.

However, Patrick as well as other people she sees in the afterlife due that as well. Somehow, Brie must handle all of this while navigating through the five steps of grief with the help of Patrick, her mysterious bomber-jacketed guide to the afterlife.

That people are more complex.

I loved Jess Rothenberg’s spin on the afterlife. He is sweet, charming and oh, what I’d do to make him smile. Het had gerust dikker mogen zijn voor mij. May 01, Levi rated it it was amazing. She just deviated from the character I loved at the beginning of the book. They are so perfect for each other. This book also got to surprise me in some parts, and the ending is really beautiful. The Catastrophic History of You and Me definitely crosses the line between fun and heartbreaking.


A large part of me wishes it could have been more sad and realistic.

And in the end, maybe true love prevails. The trouble is, sometimes words are like arrows. But it was a GOOD cry. This catastropphic of surprise is what transformed this from a good book to a fantastic one! He was such a sweetie and he was there for Brie through everything.

And like the ajd says, her boyfriend breaks her heart. Brie sees how her various family members and friends handle her death and grieve for her loss. This book made me sad, teary, happy, laugh, smile, and of course, it left me awwww-ing at the end. It is when Brie steps out of the pizza parlor that the story begins to pick up its pace and the reader begins to be truly invested.


Book Review: The Catastrophic History of You & Me by Jess Rothenberg

She makes immature decisions–and talks almost nothing like a teenager, if you ask me a teenager. Before I even read the story, the way the pages of the book are set and the chapter titles made me fall in love with this book.

It was completely unlike catqstrophic books that deal with the same subject, and I can say that it was definitely my favorite portrayal I have read yet. I felt the pain that Brie felt and the feelings that overcame her as she made discoveries. Rothenberg is brilliant for tackling family and personal issues and then fixing them eventually in the story.
