Grow up AUTHOR Ben Brooks Download ¶ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Who says youth is wasted on the youngOne thing I have learned from being alive for seventeen years is that people like to touch things very muchThings that people like to touch Vaginas Expensive things in shops Jelly that is not ready to eat yet Cigarette lighters Necks Dead Things Dogs. Much better than expected really stylish and confident nowadays it s getting harder and harder to trust blurbs but that is an accurate one Brook s literary skills and insightfulness at such a young age made me feel stupid thinking of my own adolescence He knew far about life the world and people with 17 than me with 23 He was into drugs sex and parties while I was into French poetry languages and working out and I cannot stress enough how intelligent he sounded as a teenager living his youth a person making it with a novel and a talented writer through all the book to me Ben deserved the hype but sadly his career has gone downhill from here and the older he gets the ludicrous his juvenility turns out to be paradoxically I think this is his mature work to date along with Fences being Lolito and Hurra worse than Grow Up and Fences in almost every way I can think of Favourite parts in the supermarket metaliterature in the last pages and in the dream happy while partying on drugs the rape scene Houellebec calls rapists and pedophiles the scapegoats of our sickening society so I think Ben portrayed well a dark side of many people s hearts modern metaphors and comparisons pacman Worst thing English dry humour Oh the moon because a girl rightfully so says that she loves the moon One of the cheapest and sickest ways of posing as clever and hurt other people s feelings ever createdPS I have the feeling that Ben is lucid enough to be cursed too insightful for his own sake andor maybe just somebody who matured way too fast and stopped way too early his last book points out on this direction All things considered I m glad he made it with his art in order to live better or just survive but but I hardly doubt that he is going to artistically age well meaning that I don t think he ll ever write a book as good as this one again because this is what he had to say and it was needed cause Submarine sucks only watched the film and really hated it what time has shown he s good at teenage stuff Bittersweet but true

Grow up AUTHOR Ben Brooks Download ¶ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB There's his stepdad the murdererHilarious and heartbreaking by turns Grow Up is the ultimate twenty first century coming of age novel It paints a vivid portrait of the pills and thrills and bellyaches of growing up today Funny smart and twisted it is the story of one young man transforme. This book was basically about a gross teenage boy doing gross teenage boy things and thinking about sex 247 I found it funny and entertaining and think it was an honest and modern coming of age novel The characters were annoying at first but I liked them by the end One thing I absolutely loved was the part when they were discussing Generation X as it became obvious that Brooks was really inspired by these textsSome of the writing felt very off though There was a massive overuse of metaphors and some of the description was just awkward Plus some of the remarks were horrendously offensive and don t think they were as funny as they were supposed to be Would definitely try Brooks again so think I will read Lolito in the future if I am ever able to get my hands on it

This book is weird Not good weird or bad weird just weird It s a snapshot of today s hedonistic youth taking drugs attending parties getting laid acting as if they ll be young forever with barely a thought given to the future If you ve watched the TV series Skins you ll have a fairly good idea what this book is likeIt s also a meta literary exploration of self While I m not a fan of metafiction Ben Brooks somehow manages to pull it off his writing is simple his imagery effortlessly fresh his choice of wording unusual For his age born in 1992 Ben Brooks is a great writer who kept me engaged despite the lack of any clear plotI wouldn t recommend this for the faint hearted Being in the mind of a male teenager who indulges in all sorts of substances is certainly strange But it was also amusing touched with a whimsical humour It reminded me of A Clockwork Orange if Alex was a good kid instead of a violent thugIronically Grow Up isn t the type of novel that will age well There are multiple references to popular culture whether music Los Campesinos or websites Twitter Formspring which might make this novel rather dated in a few years But for now it feels very fresh and very current Recommended for fans of drug fuelled literary explorations or those nostalgic for the careless days of youth
