↠´ Gossip Girl é Download by ↠´ Cecily von Ziegesar So, I basically just read the pilot episode Snobby girls and boys doing inappropriate things for sixteen year olds and there s nothing much else to it.
This is very possibly the worst book I have ever read The author clearly knows nothing about 16 year olds aside from what she s seen in horrible television shows all the ones just like the show this series spawned The characters are all 2 dimensional and predictable all super hot, super trendy, super rich, super popular and few if any have any redeeming qualities Even the kids who are supposed to be different are cookie cutter artsy kids who spend all their time sitting in corners brooding and trying to look mysterious while writing terrible poetry and reading Russian literature.
The narrative itself is absolutely horrible I feel like I could have written this book when I was 12 years old, only I actually was able to create character development at that age and I m not a writer Lines like Dan wasn t into being healthy He liked to live on the edge made me feel like I was Welcome To New York City S Upper East Side, Where My Friends And I Live, Go To School, Play, And Sleep Sometimes With Each OtherS Is Back From Boarding School, And If We Aren T Careful, She S Going To Win Over Our Teachers, Wear That Dress We Couldn T Fit Into, Steal Our Boyfriends Hearts, And Basically Ruin Our Lives In A Major Way I Ll Be Watching CloselyYou Know You Love Me,Gossip Girl During the particularly bleak summer of my 11th year, I spent a month hiding from my wicked step mother in the basement bedroom I shared with my sister No TV, no movies, and very little radio reception meant I readthan usual, and when I went through my own summer reading, I started borrowing from my sister, whose taste ran mostly to Goosebumps and Choose Your Own Adventure books which were, admittedly, totally awesome But she did have some racier titles tucked away The book I remember in particular was about a girl who got run over by her best friend after sleeping with the friend s boyfriend while high as a kite on strawberry flavored hash The dead girl then somehow inhabits the body of her murderous friend and spends the book trying to figure out how she died, while intermittently having second hand, mult Look I don t want to sound too much like Tipper Gore in the 80 s, or too much like Maude Flanders of The Simpsons, tearing out my hair and screeching WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN but this book Are you fucking kidding me Have teenagers really grown up so much in the 9 years since I was one, when I was content with R.
L Stine and Christopher Pike, and scandalized by Sweet Valley High I mean, COME ON.
Not only is this book written with the intelligence of a monkey on acid, there s just something stomach churning about a plot less book about teenagers with too much money gulping down booze, sticking their fingers down their throats, sleeping with each other s boyfriends, and saturating it with deep prose suck as shit, fuck, slut, bitch, whore, etc as if it were all normality, you know, just a day in the life Christ.
The actual Goss This was an enjoyable story, but the pace was a little slow there seemed to be lots of scene setting and not so much action.
Gossip Girl is a richly detailed look into the lives of Upper East Side teenagers I enjoyed getting into thehipster characters, the ones who read poetry, drink black coffee, and aren t extravagantly wealthy Dan, Vanessa, Jenny Jenny is adorable and likable as she constantly strives for a place in the It crowd Dan is a scruffy hipster with an infatuation for a pretty, popular girl he doesn t really know As you read through Dan s feelings and narration, you root for this awkward guy with poetic feelings for his polar opposite As you read through Vanessa s section, you see Dan as an awkward, stereotypical guy who simply likes this girl for her beauty Each character has a distinct viewpoint that always changes your perspective on the situation Let s move on to the rich characters I always get a Gatsby like fee
There s one thing that you must accept before you read these books lives like those written about in Gossip Girl exist And I know this because I live it Granted, I m muchlike the Jenny Humphrey type who witnesses the drama from the outside, but I still hear about it And yes, that s what the popular kids do They rent limos and get drunk or high in them on their way to Manhattan clubs where they then hook up with all their friends and their friends friends What you wear defines you, you get cool points for professionally modeling or acting, and your address is a label The drama is just part of the territory And the stress and expectations are preposterous, with college and social etiquette and whatnot, and any one toe out of line can have you packing for boarding school in an instant And really, there s next to no parental
