This book is funny and heartfelt and kind of ludicrous. All of the characters are great and the story is really fun.

Super adorably awesome. Gus is such a great character. ( )

4 Stars!!

As always, I’m late to the Klune party, but I enjoyed this no less than everyone else.

I just have to say that I totally connected with Gus. He’s my kindred spirit, my spirit animal, my brother from another mother. Seriously, I could relate to this guy so much - introverted grumpy reserved - so very very droll, and I loved pretty much everything about his neurotic self.

Make no mistake, Casey’s no slouch either! His stoner persona imbued a Keanu-esque vibe that I fell hard for, and he was all things happiness and easy going.

Not as extreme as some of Klune’s other comedies, but it still had kooky friends, the theme of family, and always the requisite laughter, feels, and tears.

I don’t know why I doubt Klune’s talent every time I start a new series or book of his (blasphemy, I know), but I’m happy to say he hasn’t let me down yet!

Come si fa a scrivere di un romanzo se dopo averlo letto si è ancora in una pozza di cuteness overload? How to be a normal person è uno dei romance più carini e follemente divertenti che abbia letto nella mia vita. Bonus, uno dei protagonisti è asessuale omoromantico… Dreamspinner Press quando ce lo pubblichi in italiano? Eh?

Gus è la persona più abitudinaria, antitecnologica, bizzarra e meno socievole dell’Oregon: ha strane abitudini (legge in ordine alfabetico le voci dell’enciclopedia), strani talenti (conosce a memoria ogni vincitore degli Oscar per ogni anno e categoria) e strani animali domestici (un furetto di nome Harry S. Truman). Sa di essere un po’ eccentrico, ma non importa, perché suo padre gli voleva bene lo stesso.

Suo padre però è morto: Gus ha perso la persona a cui voleva più bene in assoluto e da allora è solo, molto solo, anche se non vuole ammetterlo nemmeno a se stesso. Quindi incontra Casey, un hipster asessuale e consumatore di marijuana, un ragazzo pieno di vita: fa fotografie al proprio cibo per postarle di Instagram con un sacco di hashtag, ha scritto una saga YA di dubbio gusto, ma di molto successo e viene dalla soleggiata California.

Gus vuole tanto, tanto, tanto piacere a Casey e si mette in testa di diventare “normale”: inizia con procurarsi una connessione a Internet e dalla telefonata con l’operatrice della Pacific Northwest Cable (che è già di per sé un gioiello di umorismo) ne combinerà di tutti i colori.

Non so scrivervi quanto questo libro sia speciale: ha una rappresentazione dell’asessualità meravigliosa, super-positiva e accurata e voglio un sacco bene a T.J. Klune per questo. Anche la relazione che nasce tra Casey e Gus, che è omosessuale, è adorabile, sempre piena di rispetto e attenzione e l’umorismo che scorre copioso in queste pagine è la dimostrazione di come si possa far ridere senza descrivere rapporti tossici.

Inoltre, ho apprezzato tantissimo anche la rilassatezza con la quale si parla di marijuana e del suo consumo sia per scopi terapeutici sia per scopi ludici. Dobbiamo mandare un Pastor Tommy in ogni scuola a parlare con ragazze e ragazz* di droga…

Non avete idea di quanto mi piacerebbe vedere How to be a normal person al cinema: mentre lo leggevo, mi è entrata quest’idea in testa e sarebbe meraviglioso se qualche regista si accorgesse della storia di Casey e Gus… è troppo bello perché tutto il mondo non lo conosca… ( )

I lost count of how many times I burst out laughing while reading this goofy-sweet emotional-cantankerous book, what the hell. Humor's often a hard sell for me, but T.J. Klune seems to have my number somehow. I've looked around carefully, but the surveillance cameras are REALLY well hidden, so good job I guess!

For those of you averse to explicit sex scenes, this is a romance with zero of those for very good reason. Besides, you'll be too busy laughing or saying awww to miss it. This is a great story, marvelous representation, and delightful humor. Read it! ( )

Silly, adorable, ridiculous, and funny. I laughed out loud on several occasions (and I also shed a tear or two.) Klune just has this way of writing that is incredibly real to me, even with a book such as this that's borderline absurd at points.

What is normal and why would you want to be that? Should you try to change yourself to better fit what you think other people want from you? Is it worth it to put your guard down and let other people in, even though you've been shattered by loss before?

This book had a nice approach to weed, even if drugs are not something I really want or need in my own personal life. Also, the romantic interest of the main character was asexual, which is something I've never come across in a book before.

Simply put - I loved this. Not the best Klune I've read, but I think I'm incapable of disliking anything he's written. ( )

Never, ever let anyone tell you that who you are is wrong
It's okay to be gay. Or straight. Or bisexual
It's also okay to be asexual, demisexual, pansexual, or aromantic.
You do you, and if anyone gives you grief for that, remember one thing:
You are exactly the way you're supposed to be.
