Review:Stranger than Fanfiction by Chris Colfer

4 out of 5 stars 

Chris Colfer did it again- surprised me in the most pleasant ways possible with this unexpectedly hilarious but at the same time very touching story about four friends-each battles a social challenge and how their common hero in the person of their favorite actor virtually changed their lives forever when seemingly on a whim, he joins them on their, epic nerdy road trip which of course detoured to several “un-nerdy” adventures.

I think I now have a new favorite author in Mr. Colfer because his writing is consistently funny and thoughtful at the same time up until the Author’s Note actually. His metaphors keep me cracking up and his pop references are super on point. I love how there is complete diversity among the characters and how well-rounded each of them are as the story is told in each of their perspective but using the Third-Person Omniscient. You definitely get to know each of them including their inner thoughts and emotions.

The unraveling of events is surprising. I had my hunches and I had a really strong instinct one of these characters was going to die but I was very wrong about the whys. The conclusion on the one hand is the best, like the last bite of your favorite dessert- kind of familiar but still awesome.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
