The Spectacular Now - Tim Tharp Review

10:00 AM

Summary:

So, my girlfriend, Cassidy, is threatening to kick me to the curb again, my best friend suddenly wants to put the brakes on our lives of fabulous fun, my mom and big sister are plotting a future in which I turn into an atomic vampire, and my dad, well, my dad is a big fat question mark that I’m not sure I want the answer to. 

Some people would let a senior year like this get them down. Not me. I’m Sutter Keely, master of the party. But don’t mistake a midnight philosopher like me for nothing more than a shallow party boy. Just ask Aimee, the new girl in my life. She saw the depth in the Sutterman from that first moment when she found me passed out on the front lawn. Okay, so she’s a social disaster, but that’s where I come in. 

Yes, life is weird, but I embrace the weird. Let everyone else go marching off into their great shining futures if they want. Me, I’ve always been more than content to tip my whisky bottle and take a ride straight into the heart of the spectacular now.




Review:

Oh man. Stutter is a high school senior who just can't get any luck. If he could just make some changes in his life, he could probably be genuinely happy. But it seems like he just wants to take the easy way out where he does not have to change and can keep going down the path he is already heading. Which consists of partying, drinking excessively and not considering the consequences to his actions.

The whole time I wanted Aimee to make stutter better and she did but it wasn't to the extent I would have liked it too.
