Review

Praise for SOLITAIRE:

‘The Catcher in the Rye for the digital age’ – The Times

‘The most honest and authentic account of modern teenage life that you’ll read this year… outstanding contemporary fiction with appeal to fans of John Green’ – The Bookseller

‘A very authentic, teenage voice’ – Sunday Times

‘Solitaire is an extraordinary novel … [Oseman] has captured her characters’ rage, humour and insecurity with aplomb.’ –The Financial Times

‘Oseman proves herself a clever, witty writer’ – Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Alice Oseman’s debut novel, Solitaire was published to critical acclaim – “The Catcher in the Rye for the digital age” The Times. Like her characters, Alice was once a sarcastic teenager who spent all of her time on internet. Now she spends all of her time being sarcastic and on the internet.

Alice is from Rochester, Kent. She is active on Twitter and Tumblr – and her writing has been significantly inspired by behavioural trends on Tumblr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fandom is beautiful but not obsession ❤️💕
By makingoutwithbooks on 7 March 2019
Not to be dramatic but i would treasure this book forever with me like forever & ever. this book was everything i always wanted to read
it was such a great heartwarming read for me with all those amazing characters....now i really feel like i was born for this,born to read this beautifully written book by Alice Oseman !
Okay now i know that i can’t stop praising bout how great this book was, i would literally give it say like 1000 stars if it’s possible that’s how much i love this book......Three words to describe this book delightful, pleasing & emotional !
~Fandom it’s not like what we generally think & celebrity stars are not what we assume them to be
~The entire book is narrated by two main characters Angel Rahimi & Jimmy Kaga-Ricci
~Angel the girl who’s drown deep into the fandom of The Ark- a musical boy band trio......Ark is literally the entire world to Angel
~Jimmy the heart of the Ark & a best pal to Rowan & lister(other two members of the band)
~Angel loves jimmy not like infatuation but she feels him & his music
~Jimmy transgender boy who’s struggling to get his freedom & privacy from public
~Ark fandom somehow bothers jimmy making him more anxious & often ending him with panic attacks
~Angel made a friend(juliet) online, a friend with who she can share everything she loves(mostly bout Ark) cuz of similar interest in being greatest fans of Ark
~The journey of this whole book takes place in a single week & as each day passes you’ll get yourself drown deep into the book that you couldn’t stop thinking bout it
~This is an amazing story of friendship & relationships yet beautiful & honest which indeed makes you cry & overwhelm at few moments......gosh it was so intense at few parts i really cried like really....!
~ I wouldn’t exactly call this book as a same fangirl stuff like book where there’s overly obsession for a celebrity and all you know......but this book surprised me it wasn’t like that it was entirely different yet so astounding !
~It also speaks bout sexuality with many lgbtq characters in it i just loved all their representations & mainly bout what it’s like being a transgender
~I totally relate to Angel & i do understand what’s it’s like to make a celebrity musician everything to escape your reality & to love them like anything, not everyone can understand how complex it’s to make someone everything in your life even though you don’t have a damn idea bout anything who actually they’re or what’s going on in their life & you haven’t even met them in real life & all............
~As i said i’m gonna treasure this book forever with me 😍❤️ Alice Oseman you’re so talented & amazing i appreciate that you came up with something different & amazing story
