Dear Evan Hansen Reviews

  • Phils Osophie

    Es ist perfekt. Das Broadway Musical ist ja schon großartig, der soundtrack der absolute Wahnsinn... Aber diese Story als Roman zu erleben, ist ein Geniestreich. Emotional und herzergreifend wie kaum ein Zweites Buch, hat sich diese Geschichte direkt in mein Herz geschlichen. Ich finde keine Worte.

    Today is going to be a good day and here's why: IT'S COMING OUT A FEW DAYS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY. IT'S EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED.

    I don’t know how to rate this book yet, and my review is coming. I’m so thankful Penguin decided to send me an ARC of it as it was one of my most anticipated releases of the year. Let’s just say I sobbed a lot. Still am.

    I'll fully admit that my rating for this book will be slightly skewed due to my love of the show and soundtrack, which I admit are better than this book. However, I still enjoyed getting a deeper insight and perspective into the characters that could only be provided via this medium.

    And while there are parts of this book this book that I'm certain readers are going to have issues with I still think the overall message is inspiring, hopeful, and so necessary in today's chaotic world.

    I need to really study my notes and try to separate book from show to produce a full review, but I do believe this novel serves as a solid standalone. If you haven't seen the show, or listened to the OBC album, you'll still understand Evan's plight.

    Stay tuned for my full review closer to pub date.

    I'm such a huge fan of the musical Dear Evan Hansen and I was so excited when I learned that they were coming out with a YA novelization of the story. The story sticks pretty close to the story line in the musical but is able to expand where the musical is limited. I think that readers will connect with Evan even more than they already do.

    Overall, I really liked this novel. I think that most readers will be able to relate to Evan and/or Connor. We've all had some of those feelings, issues, and d

    I'm such a huge fan of the musical Dear Evan Hansen and I was so excited when I learned that they were coming out with a YA novelization of the story. The story sticks pretty close to the story line in the musical but is able to expand where the musical is limited. I think that readers will connect with Evan even more than they already do.

    Overall, I really liked this novel. I think that most readers will be able to relate to Evan and/or Connor. We've all had some of those feelings, issues, and doubts that Evan and Connor go through. It makes for an emotional read at times.

    The one reason that I gave this book four stars instead of five is that sometimes I felt like it was hard to get into at times. Sometimes it was hard to stay in the story and sometimes it seemed to go on a little long. But other than that, I really liked this book.

    If Dear Evan Hansen the musical has touched your life, than reading this novel is a must.

    "Today is going to be an amazing day and here's why"

    It begins with a letter never meant for him to see. It is finally a boy's chance for acceptance. A chance to be accepted!

    On the other hand, a family grieves over the loss of a son.

    Evan tells a lie. A big lie. He says he was the boys best friend.

    Suddenly, he is acceptable, accepted.

    But with this acceptance, he is drawn into a range of emotions. His lies cause him confusion, and lead him into more lies. As so often is the case when we begin with a lie. He realizes his one problem is himself. For in finding acceptance, he is not himself. His one problem, himself.

    The simplest of lies leads to a complicated truth. This is a well written story about coming of age. What we are willing to do to belong. We live in an age where we have access to instant connections and profound loneliness. What would we do to belong!

    Great story! I laughed and cried. It at times tore my heart out.

    I highly recommend this book! Read it to see, as Shakespeare said"oh, what a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive ". A young boy just wanted to belong, and with this desire his world and that of others are charged forever!

    i think books like these all depend on what kinds of characters and people you relate to. i have suffered with anxiety before, so i thought that i would "get" evan... but i so did not.

    i'm not sure what i expected from this book but i really didn't expect a severely lonely, awkward, anxious kid with no hobbies essentially lying to a grieving family. i mean i should have known from the synopsis but i figured there would be some levity at the very least. but no. it was just depressing all the way through.

    and not even in a way that made me sympathize. if we're talking lonely characters give me a france janvier or aled from radio silence. kids with interests that their school friends don't have. where their mental illness is not their entire personality.

    give me a plot that doesn't hinge on a suicide for self discovery. or a manic pixie dream girl for finally "putting themselves out there" (both of which this book had). all in all it was just so disappointing because i think the overall message was pretty nice.

    I wasn’t familiar with the show or the soundtrack when this was sent by the publisher as a “read it now”. It seems safe to say that if I wouldn’t have gotten that email, I probably wouldn’t have read it, even if I was intrigued by the synopsis.

    I liked Evan well enough. He’s struggling and wants someone to know him and it almost made sense why he did what he did. I wish I could say something about the other characters, but everyone seemed so clichéd and flat. I did like Connor’s chapters and the

    I liked Evan well enough. He’s struggling and wants someone to know him and it almost made sense why he did what he did. I wish I could say something about the other characters, but everyone seemed so clichéd and flat. I did like Connor’s chapters and they were sort of what kept me reading.

    Plot wise it was soooooooo slow. I read to 60% before I started skipping around and for me it didn’t really improve. I couldn’t settle into the story and spent a good portion of the book irritated that Evan kept lying. Oh, and he was such a dick to his mom.

    Overall, it wasn’t at all what I was expecting and I don’t know if that’s good or bad. I’m wondering if the show would have worked better for me.
