Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda: Review

A few weeks ago my friend received this book for her birthday and said I could borrow it once she had read it, so I said that I would read it, out of pure curiosity.
I have to admit that the same as each time I start reading a book, it took about 2 chapter for me to really get into it, but once I got a little way into the book, I couldn't bring myself to put it down.

I can honestly say that this is one of (and possibly THE) best young adult book I have read.
Throughout the book, I almost felt like the author had purposely played out both the book and the characters to play with my emotions. I found myself hating one character, then liking them more before one action made me loathe them.
But the angst! I got about a third of the way through the book and then it started... but it didn't stop! As the book went on I found myself growing more attached to characters, egging them on and hoping things worked out, making mt more engrossed in the novel.
I also like how, personally, I found it quite easy to draw parallels with some of the characters, which made the book both better and more interesting.
All the main characters being teenagers made the book seem almost interactive because I could really identify with some of what I read. In the book, there is a character named Leah and I found the early on description of her quite ironic because it is pretty similar to myself.
Overall, I thought it was an amazing book and I can't wait to go and see the film, based on this book, 'Love, Simon' in cinemas when it comes out!

Hope you all enjoyed this post and now that I have gotten back into the rhythm of blogging, I will hope to start posting more frequently on a more regular basis xx
