Book Review – Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

A college going girl who is still inside her fangirl bubble and doesn’t like leaving her room. How she adapts to new lifestyle changes and what all happens? Read everything in my review of the novel Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

So, this book revolves around Cath and Wren, two identical twins who were inseparable until they went to college. While Cath still feels dependent on Wren and wants to spend as much time as possible together, Wren feels that it’s time that the two went their separate ways and found people to hang around with. Cath’s an introverted writer who spends most of her time in her room, writing fan-fiction while Wren’s an extrovert who likes to party and get drunk. Both of them had been Simon Snow’s fan but Wren wants to move out of this fangirl bubble while Cath is still inside it.

Since Wren doesn’t wishes to be Cath’s roommate so Cath has a new roomie. Her roommate Reagen, a character I personally loved, is a total badass who couldn’t care less about the world, their friendship is one of the most precious relationships in the book. It may not be the most obvious one, but it’s amazing. Cath initially has a hard time getting out of her room and has absolutely no friends, but as the story proceeds, Cath makes heartfelt connections which made me smile so much throughout. Cath’s an over thinker, she probably over thinks about over thinking if you ask me, but she’s the nicest character. The kind you want to put in a glass box so nobody could hurt her. The relationships portrayed in the book are probably the best part about it, for me at least. And not just the romantic ones, the one between Cath and her father, the one between Cath and Wren, even the non-existing full of resentment relationship Cath had with the mother who abandoned her.

When I started college, I had the same worries as Cath, about not knowing anyone, about being all alone, about what to do and where to go, it’s such an honest, well written story that I can’t help but think about how much I liked it.

That being said, I do feel that sometimes, Cath’s character was just a little too whiney, like a child who refuses to grow up but well, aren’t we all children who just don’t want to grow up either?

I give this book a 4/5.

Without labor nothing prospers.

Success is dependent on effort.

I would prefer even to fail with honor than win by cheating.

Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.

A lie never lives to be old.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love.

There is no sense in crying over spilt milk. Why bewail what is done and cannot be recalled?

There is no witness so terrible and no accuser so powerful as conscience which dwells within us.

The gods plant reason in mankind, of all good gifts the highest.

Kindness is ever the begetter of kindness.

The first thing that comes on my mind when I think about clouds is the fluffy, soft, white thing on the sky that looks like a pillow made up of lots of intersecting circles. I hope it is the same with most of us.

Don’t get confused with the CLOUD from Cloud Computing. This article isn’t about that cloud but the natural one.

A cloud is, perhaps, one of the words in English that doesn’t express what it is thought of to be! If it was a soft, white pillow, it should have been a positive word- right? But wait, what does a ‘cloud’ signify? Bad thoughts,negative emotions, and so on. So, when we say, “Such a clouded consciousness”, it means that our emotional and intelligence capabilities are hindered. Certainly, a ‘cloud’ doesn’t seem to be a positive word even though it looks so beautiful in the sky. We…
