love in progress Reviews
Not Jay Asher's best work. It felt sloppy and full of typo's. I don't know if this was released before 13 reasons why, but it felt a lot looser in terms of writing and story arc. I know he was trying to broach the subject of lesbianism, but I feel like he fell flat of the mark somewhat, as I kept imagining Jane as a male, not a female. A lesbian still thinks like a female, and I think that is the mistake Jay makes - her thoughts are frank and non-descriptive (although, kudos for researching some labels, though I doubt lesbians who describe themselves as Butch would care). Sorry Jay, I still love your other books.**EDIT** I don't normally change my reviews, but I'm making an amendment to this one, based not only on comments I've recieved, but also a message I got in my inbox this morning.For some reason, goodreads lists this book with Jay Asher's other work (13 reasons why, the future of us) but it's not the same Jay Asher. I did wonder as I read because the style was so different, and I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt based on the connection that appears on here. As a result, my feelings for the piece have changed. The above reasons stand, I still felt that there were too many typos and the descriptions were off, there didn't seem to be a connection between the characters and the people I know who live that lifestyle which means that the characters feel flat when reading (also, the story starts in a therapists office, that put me off, like you have to be crazy to be gay, which is insulting) and the Jay Asher who writes typically for a teenage/young adult/new adult audience feels a lot more sensitive to the isues he tackles. I don't want his other fans to mistake this book for one of his. Hopefully goodreads will separate the two soon to avoid confusion.
