Epub å Nobody Real õ Steven Camden

Nobody Real The stunning and original new novel of love sacrifice and the power of the imagination from spoken word artist and acclaimed author of TAPE Steven Camden She's my Marcie And everyone else can just fall off the earth Marcie is seventeen and under pressure Pressure from Mum to go to University Pressure from Dad to rebel and find he 35 stars I was sent a copy of this book by Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewTO ALLISA MY IMAGINARY FRIEND WHEN I WAS 9 YEARS OLD I’M SORRY I FORGOT ABOUT YOU I LOVE YOU THANK YOU FOR BEING COOLAnywayNobody Real follows the story of two characters – one who is real and one who is imaginary – as their paths re cross after years of distance Rekindling their friendship is just what they realise they need unfortunately they don’t have long before they will lose each other againThings I LikedThe humour in this book was right up my alley Random witty with a hint of suppressed aggression the one liners in this novel had me laughing out loud – and then being carefully watched by my concerned mother My favourite parts were all the exchanges between Marcie and her dad concerning Calvin the female kitten For example; “We went for a walk”“You don’t walk a cat” The humour was just on pointI don’t know why but that plot twist at the end like the very end after the one with her dad really took me by surprise Like who would have guessed? Not me It wasn’t necessarily the most engaging storyline so when something jumps out at you like that it really takes you by surprise and leaves a bigger impact So good job on that I guessMarcie was a cool main character I love her She did no unreasonable wrong and was incredibly realistic I honestly did not find any wrong in her My favourite thing above all though was that she felt like a real teenager Like I promise you guys if you want to read a book about someone that isn’t a mix between 35 and 12 years old trying to pull off being 17 years old then this is the one for you I’m amazed at how well a middle aged man could perfectly capture what it’s like to be a 17 year old girl fresh out of high school Props to you Camden There were some really beautiful messages within the pages of this novel This book shows the balance between stability and instability; ”A rollercoaster’s only fun because you know you’re getting off at some point Nobody wants a rollercoaster forever” It shares the importance of euality judgement and kindness; “Don’t be mean If she’s an arse it’s got nothing to do with her weight” And encourages independence; “Can’t hitchhike someone else’s life Marcie” I was able to take a lot of important life lessons from this book especially being in my first year out of school Things I Didn’t LikeThe story wasn’t the most interesting I enjoyed it it was fun and light hearted and shocked me occasionally but I just didn’t really care There wasn’t much to the plot other than a post grad girl who is trying to figure her future out while living with a wacky dad and then her imaginary friend who is trying to get over her It sounds like a lot but each scene included one of these three plot points so by the end of it I kind of got bored of reading the same thing over and over again Maybe if there were a little romance I’d be interested but since there was next to none I can’t even give it that I enjoyed it I just wouldn’t read it again The writing style made it uick to read but hard to take everything in Short Detached Lines Words Thoughts It was all emotive and well done I loved it but just like the plot it made it difficult to read after a while I was zooming through the book but everything was slipping my mind because I was struggling to find the depth through the single word paragraphs In some places it worked but throughout the entire book is just too much There needed to be Funny intriguing and full of lovable characters Nobody Real was a great read with a number of plot twists that completely took me by surprise and left me feeling satisfied by the end However the lack of plot will keep me from picking it up again

Steven Camden õ Nobody Real Kindle

R passion Everyone seems to know what's best for her Nobody just listens Not like her imaginary friend Thor Baker used to When Tara's older brother Morgan comes home from university Marcie thinks she might have someone who understands Then Thor Baker shows up In the real world Still strong still handsome still made to protect her This book was so powerful and engaging every single page had me thinking what could possibly come next and wondering what on earth would happen with Marcie and Thor like the latter is an imaginary friend of Marcie a bear in fact yet he felt so real? It was just incredibleOf course it's happening inside your head Harry but why would that mean it's not real? Dumbledore This uote was pretty much circulating throughout my head whilst reading this book and I imagine that Steven Camden’s intention was to have the reader reflect about their own imaginary friends? For who didn’t have an array of them I know I certainly did And that’s what made me slightly connect with Marcie I supposeBut it was the structure of this book I think that had me so engaged The fact that the author writes in dual points of view from Marcie or Mars as she’s fondly known as and Thor her imaginary friendA perspective told from a non existent character?I mean I was enthralled all the way through I felt so many emotions throughout his chapters like there were times when I felt oddly terrified? I didn’t know what Thor would do next I mean I knew he couldn’t do anything but the power of his narration was absolutely epic I mean there were scenes where Thor was talking to a Doctor about his reckless behaviour and possible eventual exit from Marcie’s mind it was just insane but brilliantly memorizingMarcie herself was such a fascinating character a teenager who read as someone far older than her years who always wanted to know what happened with her mother and who always loved reading and coffee also relatable huh?What I also loved in this book were the flashbacks also told in dual Thor and Marcie points of view which just went to highlight how the two relied on one another through their turbulent times Yes I say one another because some Thor focal chapters chronicled his own imagination which just shows the power of Camden’s writing and Marcie’s imaginationI’ll leave it there but sufficed it to say I cannot recommend this book enough and it’s something that will stay in my mind for some time
