Description

I'm also an enormous horror fan, so the continuous references to classic films made me a happy camper.

The body image issues are very relevant and tie in well with the internet-driven prejudices about appearance that dominate teens and YAs thinking. Some of the plot "twists" were quite evident from context, but that didn't completely remove their impact. Jesse Spark has a broken heart and in a few short weeks he’ll require major surgery to repair it – which means he only has a month to accomplish two almost-impossible tasks.I think Jesse is quite a relateable teenage character, and his passion and talent for movie making was inspiring and believable and not overdone. This is (once again) a phenomenal book, it’s cute, it’s fun, it’s clever, it’s adorable, it’s hilarious, it’s emotional (I sobbed like a baby), it’s just EVERYTHING OKAY?

Broken Hearts and Zombie Parts was such a cute and fun listen, which I enjoyed listening to in the car as i was travelling to and from a weekend away. I'm not the target demographic for YA at all, but sometimes it just really hits the mark and gives me everything I'm looking for from a book. Ich habe mich mehrfach gefragt, wie realistisch es ist, dass diese Jugendlichen diesen Zombiefilm drehen und das alles auch noch so professionell und dann dachte ich „Ist doch egal, ich liebe es und alles, was ich will, ist, das Jesse glücklich ist!I did see the ending coming from a mile off (although not all of it's details) but I loved seeing how we managed to get there. Broken Hearts and Zombie Parts is more common and mainstream, but the open heart operation and the personal story of William made this book special in a different way. Cue Jesses hospital visit and diagnosis, heart surgery is imminent but first, the movie must be filmed - and that’s just mission one, mission two is to have a love connection before the surgery and recovery period. Aber nicht nur Jesse, auch all die anderen Charakter sind mir ins Herz gewachsen und ich bin sicher, das ich da nicht die Einzige bin. I loved Jesse as a character, he was so relatable in his insecurities in an often fickle, body obsessed world and to see him grow was fantastic.

If you like audiobooks, you should definitely listen to this one, because what Chris Nelson has delivered here is perfect.Es ist mir vollkommen egal, ob manche Situationen / Szenen ein wenig over the top sind, denn alles ist so passend und niedlich. There were a couple of moments throughout the book where he either mispronounced or placed the stress on an odd part of a word or sentence, but other than that it was an excellent quality audiobook.

The English audiobook picked up the mood of the story perfectly and Chris Nelson gave Jesse and everyone else so much character that I fell a little in love with his voice. Fall in love before this surgery lands him with a huge scar - because how will anyone ever fancy him after that? A wonderful turn on a coming-of-age bucket list story with the twist of open heart surgery juxtaposed against making a zombie movie. From the navigation of friendships through immense changes, including the end of high school but also the coming out of close friends, to what it simply means to grow up, this book puts its heart on the line for the story.It deals with some more serious topics like body image, homophobia, bullying but without dragging the whole mood down. Secrets are threatening to break the trio of friends up and the further into filming they get the tenser the situation gets.
