I have to admit, most of the books that I read have female prota
I have to admit, most of the books that I read have female protagonists, so whenever I read a book with a male protagonists, I find it a little refreshing...especially when I enjoy the character, and I absolutely adored Fletch! :DWas this review helpful?

Fletch is a ladies man and he really has no problem with that, and sometimes that kind of persona can be a bit off-putting with male narrators, but for Fletch--it worked! It worked because Fletch was so forthright and honest, and while he did hook up with a lot of girls, it wasn't all he wanted and it wasn't all he thought about either. I loved that Fletch was so confident, but also vulnerable at the same time. I also loved seeing him become friends with Ellie. It allowed him to become an even better character, and it gave him a way to look introspectively into his own life and decide on what he wanted to be like in his future.
I thought that Crushed was an amazing story. It was funny, and the characters were fantastic. Fletch is easily one of my favourite male narrators of all time; I loved his friends, especially Ellie. I loved seeing Fletch grow up, and I adored seeing his perspective on his budding friendship with Ellie. Overall, I just loved everything! Crushed was a wonderful story, an incredibly enjoyable read, and I fully recommend it! I especially think you'll enjoy this one if you like male narrators, and if you like when your narrators are flawed, but also willing to learn and grow. :)

Fletch, the book¿s narrator, is the character you'll love to hat
Fletch, the book’s narrator, is the character you'll love to hate, but the hate won't last.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I read this quickly, often shaking my head at his antics, but all the while hoping for his success and change. And Miller does not disappoint on these aspects. We follow Fletch through his elite boarding school life, his incredibly-well drawn friendships and relationships, and yeah, his often shallow and sometimes meaningless debauchery. But all this changes when he starts to take a look at who he is, where he comes from and the hard truths about family and girls and love and expectations. This is a coming of age tale that will not disappoint. You will shake your head at some of the things Fletch gets up to, but he’ll end up stealing your heart in the end.
