“Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe” by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

“I got to thinking that poems were like people. Some people you got right off the bat. Some people you just didn’t get – and never would get.”

If one one would take this book as a person or as a poem in the way the hero understood in the quote, then it is a book easy to “get”, but sometimes the teenage frustration with the change from child to an adult can be hard to bear.

I do not want to give away what happens, so this makes the book impossible to review, rather I would like to talk with people, who , have already read it: what worked for them? What was hard to take, irritating? What did they think the writer did best?
