Overview

All about Lulu by Jonathan Evison


Weakness has always been a concern for William Miller: growing up vegetarian in a family of bodybuilders will do that to a person. But William is further weakened by the death of his mother, the arrival of a new step-mother, and his irrepressible crush on his new step-sister, Lulu. As Lulu faces down her own challenges, William watches his life shift into tumult and despair. Once Lulu departs for college, Will goes into the world to find himself — discovering Western philosophy, a cruel dating world, enduring friendship, and, ultimately, his true calling. Emboldened by his turn as a late-night radio personality, Will rescues himself from the self-image of weakness he'd long wished to escape. This debut novel explores the fundamental difference between where we come from — and the endless possibilities of where we may go.

I did like this book as an escape. I liked the characterizations. There was a hint of suspense in the book...the underlying mystery. Ok for a quick summer read.

I loved this book and I hope Jonathan Evison writes many more. It was well written and the characters were interesting and and so likable, you really root for them. It was a touching story and also at times very funny.

This book grabbed my heart from the first pages. Evison creates characters as real, as quirky, as complicated as your own crazy family, and they pulled me in to a quick paced, wacky and totally believable world that made me laugh even as it moved me to tears. Evison is a talent to keep an eye on, and I can't wait for the next book.

There is humor in the pain, shock in the pleasure and awe in the philosophy of Will Miller¿s tale. We discover powerful obsessions that shape the world around him and reveal to us how people evolve through the one thing we all endure in the course of our lives: change. The characters are real, twisted, and lovable. Entertaining from start to finish this book is a great summer read that will carry you away, tripping lightly through the heavy details of one man¿s life, and leave you refreshed at the other end. It¿s good. Read it.
