The Haters 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

Jesse Andrews writes the way I think - without holding anything back. The characters are fleshed out just enough that you start feeling for them (especially when Wes tells Ash the story of Dad Junior). While it's not as quick of a read as Me and Earl, it definitely makes me smile!

I received a free copy of this book from Netgallery in exchange for an honest review. This will not affect my decision in any way. Cover: The simplicity just gets to me. I love the colors used, and the headphones. It fits The Haters perfectly. Characters: The realness of this group of characters shocks me. They have so many problems, and they are so well written. Corey irritated me. He has some serious problems. If he was my friend, I would probably end up hitting him in the face. He was so rude and awkward. I felt bad for him a lot of the time. Plot: Alright, I loved it. The struggle an up-and-coming band goes through while basically on the run. There was never a dull moment! There was always something happening to the trio, and it was exciting. The things they managed to get themselves in, holy crap, I would be terrified if I was in the situation. The humor seemed like it was trying to hard at points. It was like Andrews was a Dad trying to sound cool to his kid and his kid’s friends. But some of it was actually ridiculously funny. During the second half of the novel, I was laughing out loud. It could be really funny at points. Ending: Not exactly where I saw it going, but I loved the realness of it. There were so many damages that normally wouldn’t be mentioned in a novel or movie, but Andrews reminds us that there are consequences to our actions. I loved the ending. Overall: The Haters was a good read. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it. It was nice, and could be really deep at times. The characters and adventure were probably the highest points. The Haters was very well-written and different from your usual book. I liked the change in formats; it kept things interesting.

Let the Summer of Hate World Tour begin! In The Haters we meet Wes, Corey and Ash. Wes and Corey have been friends for a long time and when they go to jazz camp they meet Ash, soon they form a sort of friendship and Ash convinces them to leave camp, start their own band and tour the country. Coming of age road trip book, these three get into some pretty unbelievable situations, they try again and again to play shows but there's always something that goes wrong before, during or after their shows. I liked the way Wes narrates the story even if sometimes it was a bit distracting. These young characters are very compelling, in the beginning is not absolutely obvious that there's more to them that meets the eye but as the book progresses we see that their life at home is or hasn't been the easiest and so these group that they form means a lot to them. Not everything is great, I mean they are still teens and hormones sometimes take the best of them so there are some fights and misunderstandings between the and what I liked was that their voices are real, I can hear teenagers talking like this, not really using big words or big thoughts to get their ideas and feelings out there. The words that they use here are more raw and real and you can really feel them. Great book by Jesse Andrews, definitely hooked on his writing style.

**Thank you so much to Amulet Books for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!** I have always been the biggest fan of music, so as soon as I heard about The Haters, I knew it was going to be something that I loved. In addition, it was written by none other than the amazing Jesse Andrews, who wrote Me and Earl and the Dying Girl which I read and loved a few years ago. The Haters follows Wes and Corey who are two best friends. They're attending a jazz camp and they have to try out for which band they get in. Of course, they get put into a band where all the lowly music players go. They end up meeting a guitarist in their band named Ash, which is short for Ashley. The three of them end up jamming out together and find that they sound really good together. Therefore Ash comes up with the brilliant idea one night for all of them to leave camp and head down south to start a band and play at random places. I honestly have to say that The Haters had just as much humor as Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. I was always laughing which made me want to keep reading. There were also parts where the format changed a bit, like conversations looked like a screenplay which I really liked! However, be warned that some of the humor is a little mature! I really loved all the characters. Wes was super awesome, as were Corey and Ash. The three of them just meshed really well together, which was cool. They were all very headstrong and I appreciated their really strong love for music. I can't wait to read more by Jesse Andrews in the future. Until then, I'll be recommending this one to many people!
