Ty Roth ¶ 0 Free readIng Along the way Gordon and Keats get to know each other better and take us down memory lane via lashbacks of their lives with a living and breathing ShellyI wanted to love this one I really did I think the premise of the novel is brilliant but I ound the characters seriously lacking I couldn t relate to or sympathize with them Even Keats who I should have The Ramayana felt sorryor didn t leave an impression Gordon is horribly selfish and self centered Shelly s obsession with the narcissistic Gordon was pathetic Keats was just there and didn t appear to serve a purpose beyond that of narrator The plot moved slower than I would have liked and honestly I spent most of this book in a state of depression Avoid this one if you re looking Fuego y Sangre for happy because this is a dark and deep read I do appreciate the idea behind the novel but unfortunately it didn t win me over History buffs and poetryans might enjoy this one than I did I encourage you to read the author s notes at the end of the novel before reading They are very informative if you aren t Pursuit (Star Wars: Boba Fett, familiar with the background of these poetsI also have to slap a content warning on this one It contains colorful language references to drugs sex incest and other heavy topics that some younger teens might not be readyor Cover notes The cover is absolutely stunning and the reason this book garnered my attention in the Johan et Pirlouit 05 Intgrale - Magie et exotisme first place When Iirst saw the cover Lauri Törni - Legend - Larry Thorne for So Shelly I knew I wanted to read it even without knowing anything about it Yes I m that superficial when it comes to gorgeous book covers Sue me PIt wasn t until I stumbled upon an interview with author Ty Roth on Teens Read and Write that I actually took the time to read what the novel was about and realize the connection to literary legends Percy and Mary Shelley Lord Byron and John Keats You can t deny that a book like So Shelly leaves a lasting impression but as I try to piece together why I mind myself unable to pinpoint a single answer Resisting the urge to spew metaphorical bullshit I will say that the morbid much concept of bringing historical از دیار آشتی figures into modern day contemporaryiction was not only genius but absolutely mesmerizing Like all mortals John Keats is dying and like most because he believes his time will end sooner rather than later he is desperate to leave a lasting impression So begins his retelling of tales that his The Kite friend Shelly shared with him before her own untimely death And as her life often did many of her stories revolve around her childhoodriend the unreuited love of her life George Gordon Byron Powered by humorous musings and homogeneous ties to history romanticism and death I thought the book started off much stronger than it ended While reading I The Power of Place freuently noted many uotes and passages I simply adored Though I did reach a point where I noticed my interest wavering a bit at about the middle and it never really picked back up I can t help but blame Gordon at least partlySelf conscious as he was about his clubfoot Gordon did everything possible to prove he was just was worthy as normal boys He easily excelled in anything he tried much to the dismay of hisriends and Thoughtful Interaction Design family What others struggled to master Gordon naturally shined at What Iound myself most astonished to realize was that Gordon really is the type of A course in Game Theory flawed character you can t help but initially succumb to because of his charms only toeel completely repelled by once to get to know him better Yet even when his untoward side was revealed you realize his disposition to be self centered is not malicious it is simply who he is and somehow he manages to make that uality enviable while simultaneously causing you to marvel at the pureness to his simple philosophies Shelly was a much spirited character The girl you secretly admire because she doesn t care to Topless Cellist follow social norms Marching to her own beat Shelly was an idealist a hopeless romantic and an independent thinker She impressed upon me that the world could do a lot worse than produce of her kind And because I never got the senserom her that she d want to chose death over life or any reason her end surprised and saddened me John though very intelligent didn t really inspire much thought on his character I wouldn t say he lacked motivation to do anything other than to tell another person s story but say he lacked motivation to do anything other than to tell another person s story but was the conviction needed to make him remarkable
though the afterwardthe Afterward Roth warns that you should not read So Shelly as a historical accurate account of the lives of the Shelleys Byron and Keats you can t help but notice the parallels and I ound it all uite enchanting Though So Shelly is marketed as a YA novel I d have to say that I d only recommend it to mature audiences because of the Tax Progressivity and Income Inequality freuent references to sexual situations and crude language So Shelly was than a haunting entrancing tale of love and loss It was a uiet yet thought provoking exploration of self a novel I will undoubtedly share with many to offer a different kind of reflection on life and livingI m really lookingorward to reading by debut author Ty Roth A Learning and Development fanfic in which Lord Byron John Keats and an amalgamation of Percy and Mary Shelley are teens with cellphones and ipods living in the Midwest At times I thought the story worked but most of the time it didn t How do you bring the second generation of Romantics to the present To Ohio In many respects Ty Roth was prettyaithful to the scandalous biographical details especially involving Byron Augusta Claire Caroline Lamb they re all there But the author couldn t get too smutty because it is supposed to be Arduino Development Cookbook for teenagers not adults Thus the book vacillated between being either an unusually debauched YA novel or a tepid version of Less Than Zero Overall So Shelly was an interesting exercise I didn teel it was bad but it was not good eithe.

It s hard to review SO SHELLY without using expletives Because it s that effing good But I m going to try Yes it s a reimagining of the lives of the major romantic poets Byron Keats and a mishmash of Shelleys Sometimes when reading it something happens and you think ooh I wonder if that s historically accurate It s The Audio Expert fascinating and the author explains the majority in an eually interesting afterword But that s not the thing about this book Don t care about the romantic poets Doesn t matter This book is beautiful It s tragic melancholy hole in your soul stuff So intensely atmospheric and the great lake hovers constantly in the background Looking to discuss setting as character Check out Lake Erie in So Shelly Love death obsession andlawed people are the order of the day wrapped up in a layered literary package It took me Dawnkeepers (The Nightkeepers, forever toinish this book because Keats dragged me along with my heels dug in all the way You see the end خدا بود و دیگر هیچ نبود from the beginning and I just didn t want to get there Want to see bookish thingsrom me Check out my YouTube Channel Stars This book is a loose retelling of three dead poets lives if they were teens in modern day society Shelly has died and her Shemonah Perakim final wish wasor Keats and Gordon to spread her ashes on a beach while playing her REM CD 101 ways to improve your life from her old boom box While travelling to the beach Keats and Gordon get to know each other and reminisce on the times spent with Shelly Iound all the characters to be lack lustre and a bit boring to me Gordon was extremely self centred and Shelly s obsession with him was a bit pathetic The book started off great and I thought I was really going to enjoy it Unfortunately no real plot developed and what did come of the story was very slow I honestly went into this anticipating to either 1 hate it 2 enjoy it Torakoita ja panssarivaunuja for the schlocky high school AU cheese its premise is and while it is as schlocky and trashy as anyone can anticipate out of a privileged high school YA novel what makes So Shelly incredible as a book is its self awareness and its criticisms of the genre it models and of the persons it has appropriated toit its respective roles Ty Roth clearly knows his Romantics beyond the superficial read throughs of their works and the wikipedia blurbs of their biographies There s some deep probing considerations a lot of what ifs and a lot of bold conjectures about the Romantics and their environment I could see my own academic theories in practice masuerading as plot Fenton Glass Compendium fodderor a Francesca Lia Block esue narrative climax Super intense super invigorating I m wholly impressedAs Inside the U D A for the reviewers actively complaining about how Roth has supposedly defaced the names of poets and authors literally infamousor A Medieval Christmas fucking the system and defying the norm while wrestling with the conflicts and comforts of their privileged stations well I m pretty sure that actually states it Asor the reviewers actively complaining about the explicit content and how they wouldn t recommend this book to teens the lack of aith they have in YOUNG READERS IS COMPLETELY DISTURBING AND THE INSULT TO readers is completely disturbing and the insult to intelligence and their ability to recognize how the characters suffer because of their lifestyles is even atrocious You know I m not sure what scares me most that this novel is a spot on representation of teenagers today or that it might actually influence them In what can only be called an insult to young adults the world over Mr Roth delivers a literary travesty In act the author manages in one سایه لای پوست fell swoop to disgrace the names of three beloved poets murder anyall depth and seriousness to issuesacing teens today and create a cast of characters that are so vapid annoying unrealistic and utterly repugnant they made me appreciate the Twilight series And that The Nonprofits Guide to Human Resources friends is only the beginning The dialog appears to be taken almost wordor word Territory from episodes of Beverly Hills 90210 and Dawson s Creek and before you ask no it s not an homage The plot what little that exist started as a good idea but completely derailed into a shallow reconstruction of historyor an under appreciated school outcast The writing while skilled and at times beautiful in construction is completely devoid of eeling and movement It s as if the writer is relaying a story that has been told so many times even he s bored with
