    One thought on “The Beginning of Everything”

    1. Rating 1.5 StarsI almost feel like laughing, but not quite The Beginning of Everything is majorly over hyped, but I suspect that s because of the nature of YA We ve come to expect a very standard, happily ever after esque, unrealistic portrayal of life from YA We assume the end of the book is the end of these characters lives and don t bother to think about them breaking up with their true love in three months or rushing off to college and possibly creating another screwed up parental relationsh [...]

    2. No rating because I didn t make it very far with this No real review either but I m going to share a few thoughts on my initial impressions, mostly because I want you to tell me if I m wrong I just got the feeling almost straight away that this wouldn t be my type of book The first chapter starts very well, great male narrator s voice and a rather shocking opening with Toby Then the next few chapters reminded me of a Taylor Swift music video And I don t mean that in a general way, I mean it actu [...]

    3. I have exactly 2 emotions right now TWO RAGE AND DISAPPOINTMENT And I know I m not the world s biggest fan of contemporary, but I loved Extraordinary Means so I thought this book would be a clear winner BUT NO It was tedious and slow and left me unsatisfied and angry I think I should like to growl.But here is a list Because you were totally hanging out for a list I JUST KNOW IT.Why This Book Monstrously Disappointed Me First of all, it felt like it was trying so hard to be John Green John Green [...]

    4. I was waiting in line and happened to have this book with me, and after only 10 minutes I was already hooked The first few pages recount a horrifying situation that is bound to shock anyone, and already I could put myself in their shoes and feel it changing these boys for life Then shortly after, we re brought into the second shock of the book the accident that changed Ezra s life.The Beginning of Everything is narrated by Ezra, a one time golden boy who s now feeling out of place with his cane [...]

    5. Sometimes I think that everyone has a tragedy waiting for them, that the people buying milk in their pajamas or picking their noses at stoplights could be only moments away from disaster That everyone s life, no matter how unremarkable, has a moment when it will become extraordinary.So, I picked up this book intending to escape into the cute little world of contemporary where the sun shines and daisies bloom and people live with bright smiling faces and then I got this.The Beginning of Everythin [...]

    6. I think it s possible for someone who didn t really look at this book too critically to be tricked into wholeheartedly liking it Otherwise, I can t imagine someone actually thinking this is a good novel.I read a review where the writer said this is the perfect book for the average tumblr user, and that is just so completely accurate this also makes sense when you consider the fact that in the author s biography it describes her as an internet personality .This story caters to nerds by writing a [...]

    7. Hmmn t decide between 3.5 or 4 starsbut in that range somewhere I think that everyone has a tragedy waiting for them, that the people buying milk in their pajamas or picking their noses at stoplights could be only moments away from disaster That everyone s life, no matter how unremarkable, has a moment when it will become extraordinary a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen For former golden boy Ezra Faulkner, his tragedy is in the form of a reckless driver one [...]

    8. I pretty seriously hated this book Loathed it actually I really only finished it so that I could write a scathing review because I really hated it that much.The characters are barely than cardboard cutouts made from restroom gender icons with pithy words scrawled on them in red sharpie Not a lot of substance but indicators as to what we re supposed to think of them I didn t think much of them, I can tell you that They are shallow, immature, emotionally crippled and selfish with little to no car [...]

    9. The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider is a book about a boy named Ezra Faulkner He s the definition of a parents wet dream that is until his world comes crashing down on him Well its not the world it s like a car Ezra use to be a star tennis player, the most popular guy in school, had the most popular girl in school as his girlfriend, and makes pretty good grades He s living the high school dream until he walks in on his girl friend cheating on him at a party where he gets in his car t [...]

    10. Sometimes I think that everyone has a tragedy waiting for them, that the people buying milk in their pajamas or picking their noses at stoplights could be only moments away from disaster That everyone s life, no matter how unremarkable, has a moment when it will become extraordinary a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen.Ezra Faulkner thought he had everything He was the Golden Boy of Eastwood High Star tennis player hanging with the popular crowd and dating th [...]

    11. 3.5 Stars I thought about the metal in my knee, replacing this piece of me that was missing, that no longer worked And it wasn t my heart, I kept telling myself It wasn t my heart.Ah, okay So I m going to venture out and say I have no clue what I want to say There Simple I said it ExceptI had so much to say I had little notes written here and there and I found some great enjoyment and humor from page one to the end And then there was so much sadness entwined in each layer of humor, of each dig a [...]

    12. 2.5 stars overall, I feel this book tries too hard it tries to be meaningful and moving but, ultimately, it feels like a subpar imitation of a john green novel the main character Ezra is an all right boy he s relatable but nothing special the love interest, Cassidy Thorpe, is so cliche she strives too hard to be different and she consistently irritated me she loves going on adventures and weaves flower crowns and dresses in vintage dresses the same as any other girl who is meant to be depicted a [...]

    13. I guess I m a sucker for happy endings I like it when life works out in a neat little package wrapped in red ribbon and blue paper, and I find the warm, gooey center filled with sugar and jam But sometimes life kicks you in the ass, staples your forehead to the living room carpet, and then swipes your lunch money.While it would have been easy to call this novel cheesy, and then add a bit of sap and honey for good measure, I don t feel as though that truly sums up THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING Of c [...]

    14. 4 starsI really, genuinely enjoyed this I had so much fun reading it, and there were times when I was desperate to keep going even though I knew I needed to get back to my school work I absolutely loved Ezra he has a great name too His character arc and development is everything He s just a really good guy, funny too I laughed at his jokes a lot I also liked that the book was about him, and his journey, instead of his and Cassidy s even though I did like them together I also really appreciate ho [...]

    15. 3 to 4 stars I liked it as much as I liked Looking for Alaska I think both books seem to be talking about similar themes and even some of the patterns and characters are a bit similar though I would have to say that reading this book is a bit lighter than reading LFA maybe because of the familiar high school cliches in this book But despite mentioning the existence of high school cliches in this book, I still liked this This is another young adult novel that implicitly helps or teaches readers [...]

    16. 3,5 SterneErwartet hatte vor allem ein Buch, das anders ist Das lag an den vielen Bewertungen, die genau dies versprachen Vermutlich war das der Grund, warum ich zu Beginn etwas entt uscht war Der Protagonist Ezra war zu Beginn des Buches beliebt und hat diese Beliebtheit auch genossen Seine Freunde waren alles andere als das, besonders seine feste Freundin war einfach furchtbar Ezra hat das nicht bemerkt Ich bin jemand, der sich sehr schwer damit tut, meine einmal gebildete Meinung ber Charakte [...]

    17. I picked up this book solely off of my love for Robyn Schneider s latest novel, Extraordinary Means, aching to see if her other works were just as good Unfortunately, The Beginning of Everything failed to impress me, and I had to force myself to finish it What started off, at the very least, as an intriguing premise, quickly turns into a tedious and unimaginitive story that is laughably predictable Ezra is in the center of the school s spotlight when a car crash leaves him suffering from a cripp [...]

    18. Ugh This ended up being such a disappointment For the first 2 3rds of this book I was cruising steady at 4 stars, but it just totally fell apart at the end I have no idea what even happened or why So unsatisfying.

    19. There s a big difference between deciding to leave and knowing where to go Honestly, I don t know what to feel about this book It doesn t really make an impact for me as I expected The story revolves when Ezra Faulkner had an accident that made his other leg disabled From a famous tennis player and a heartthrob to a simple student now Everything changes the day he became incapacitated, the popularity, parties, the tennis team, and even friends Until Cassidy The Mysterious Thorpe came, and it mad [...]

    20. 3.5 stars This one took awhile to pick up for me I considered throwing in the towel a couple times but kept going,hoping it would get better.The beginning is shocking horrifying with Toby nice opening section to pull your readers in hmm The characters and story grew on me but I never got fully invested in the story There a plenty of wit, humor, and sadness sprinkled throughout with some drama in as well A couple scenes did have me tearing up and everything coming together at the end with Ezra s [...]

    21. 3.5 5 starsThis was a really enjoyable read I enjoyed it.At the beginning it felt a lot like it was trying too hard, and there were parts of the book that felt like that it was trying to be a really deep and meaningful book Overall, though, it was a really enjoyable contemporary and I liked the characters a lot I would probably read it again.

    22. I felt like this book was misleading The first 3 chapters were really good but after that, I felt like the plot shifted and focused too much on Ezra and Cassidy s relationship Also, I did not like Cassidy She didn t seem like a believable character to me I couldn t figure out why Ezra was so intrigued by her I wanted to hear about Ezra s strained friendship with his childhood buddy, Toby This book just never got off the ground for me Very draggy and disappointing Robyn Schneider s writing style [...]

    23. Robyn Schneider s novel underwent a title change from Severed Heads, Broken Hearts to The Beginning of Everything Both titles I think are fitting for the story within, though I must say I feel a certain affection for the original, which conveys both the humor and the darkness of Schneider s witty, brilliant debut Ezra Faulkner theorizes that no one s life really begins until they go through a personal tragedy This may seem an odd sort of belief, but it makes sense Tragedy has a way of putting th [...]

    24. See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsThank you Simon and Schuster Australia for sending me this copy No compensation was given or taken to alter this review You have this maddening little smile sometimes, like you ve just thought of something incredibly witty but are afraid to say it in case no one gets the joke Severed Heads, Broken Hearts or The Beginning of Everything was one of my most highly anticipated novels of 2013 So when going into this, I had high expectations And for what seems finally, [...]

    26. I honestly liked this than I liked any John Green book Not that I don t love his books, but I just thought this book was so special, I guess It really spoke to me and made me feel all kinds of things And the characters were amazing and brilliant and it was a great representation of wasted potential in high school found in stuck up populars It s about a classic jock that doesn t have any real ambitions outside of sports and popularity and the struggle of overcoming that by becoming a social outc [...]

    27. Oscar Wilde once said that to live is the rarest thing in the world, because most people just exist, and that s all I don t know if he s right, but I do know that I spent a long time existing, and now I intend to live Ezra FaulknerWow So this book surprised me I REALLY, really enjoyed Robyn Schneider s writing She really knows how to create really realistic, witty, amazing characters I definitely related to most of them and loved all of the Harry Potter and Doctor Who references If I was to comp [...]

    28. I was really hoping to give this book five stars but I just couldn t The beginning of the book was amazing Full of humor and high school problems everyone faces Then in the middle of the book went the other direction and wasn t that exciting any but I it had hope in this book until the end The end of the book broke my heart I was hoping it would leave me breathless or happy at least Instead it sort of left me hanging with a hole in my heart I was really hoping that Ezra awesome main character wo [...]

    29. 4.5 stars This book included some of my most favorite things such as Favorite movie movies Favorite personFavorite classic novel.So of course I had to give this a high rating That and I adored it 33
