Original de: El Extraño Gato del Cuento

When Everything Feels Like the Movies no fue lo que creía. Lo terminé de leer hace un par de días y aún estoy un poco movida por lo que pasé con este libro. Utilizo muchas veces en mis reseñas la palabra "inesperado" pero esta vez esa palabra no le hace justicia a When Everything Feels Like the Movies. En el blog tengo varios libros con temas LGBT pero ninguno, en realidad ninguno como este.

Estuve muy tentada de dejar el libro en el primer capítulo, tiene absolutamente todo lo que no soporto en los libros Young Adult que van para lo dark: Drogas, Bullying, Sexo demasiado explícito. Cuando leo Young Adult quiero leer algo bonito, que al final me deja un mensaje o al menos pase un buen rato. Es muy raro que busque libros oscuros en Young Adult, trato de leer esos más en New Adult o Adulto.

¿Por qué lo continué? Porque Jude tiene una forma muy particular de narrar y es recién en el segundo capítulo que me entero que Jude es un chico. Sentí que no debía dejar pasar la oportunidad de leer un libro LGBT donde no todo son estrella y unicornios. Sobre todo por un personaje como Jude, un chico que no se define tanto por el rol de género, no estoy segura si puedo denominarlo transexual, porque la verdad es que no sé mucho del tema y me da un poco de miedo haber malinterpretado lo que Jude es. Pero si tuviera que definirlo en una categoría, sería esa lo primero que se me viene a la mente para identificar a Jude.

Lo que hizo que me quedará leyendo el libro, aunque por momentos tenía que dejarlo ya que varias veces no me sentía cómoda con lo que leía, todo el libro es un escenario completamente nuevo para mí, es la narración. Está escrito en pasado, ya sé que la mayoría de los libros están escritos en pasado pero este en especial te indica que algo pasará o pasó para que la narración sea de esa manera. Hay frases como "Y con eso debí haber sospechado..." o "Recuerdo que le dije...". Es bastante inquietante, teniendo en cuenta la vida de los personajes. Llega un punto en que la misma narración te hace creer que terminará de una manera más común, más normal, más feliz pero no y es bastante chocante.

When Everything Feels Like the Movies no es un libro para todo el mundo y si alguna vez lo recomiendo tendría que ser a alguien que específicamente esté buscando un libro como éste.

Entre la más cruda realidad, la fantasía y la locura; When Everything Feels Like the Movies es un libro que si logras terminar de leer, lo odiarás o amarás, pero no lo vas a olvidar así lo intentes.

A difficult book to read and an even more difficult book to review. I came to When Everything Feels Like The Movies after hearing about both its award accolades and its detractors for the unflinchingly brutal content. This was a bleak read and for the first 2/3rds of the book I was ready to give this book a bad review - the writing felt shallow, far too immersed in extremes and shocking for shocking's sake. The characters felt utterly unlikable. But then something shifted for me the last 3rd of the book. The relentless attacks on Jude from all sides (his family, his friends and his fellow students) and his own ways of combating this started to make sense and I could really understand his desperation. My own personal reaction to this book was mainly - "why are people still writing these kinds of bleak books where queer kids are getting so abused" - the reason is...it still happens. And this is why a brutally honest and raw book like this needs to be published. ( )

I couldn’t finish this. It was too over the top. Every character was a caricature. Well written though. ( )

I really wanted to hate this book. I realize that this story leans heavy on the idea that teens are product of the pop culture around them, and sometimes kids reach outside of their own time to take from pop culture of the generation before them, but in both these allowances this book seem unrealistic. I felt a grown ass man talking through a ninth grader (or however old these characters are supposed to be). Set in a town where it seems to be endlessly snowing, which I resented for being set in the US ("singles" being the slang for American dollar bills) when this was written by a Canadian and published by a Canadian publish and is in contention to take Canada Reads this year. The author made a choice to take this story out of Canada and possibly did this narrative a disservice.

I most certainly was placing my hopes on this book to be an indication of the new gay culture where LGBT goes in fact include trans* persons. But every few chapters a unwarranted trans*phobic comment is tossed in for good measure. What would be more provocative than including these hatful statements would have been to have a young gay male character written in any form other than a miniature version of a stereotype.

But it's the first book in a long time that I finished in a reasonable amount of time and the first Canada Reads selection I have ever read, so that's saying something. ( )
