pdf Ù The Love Interest ½ Cale Dietrich

Trained and at the top of their games They have to be whoever the girl doesn't choose will dieWhat the boys don't expect are feelings that are outside of their training Feelings that could kill them bothFrom debut author Cale Dietrich comes a fast paced adventure that is full of both action and romance and subverts common trop 25—where the half star stands for “Metafiction Metafiction everywhere” and the second one for “I know your message is important and I'm trying to reward you for it even though you are so trashy and I'm not even saying that affectionately”“I may as well start whining about how nice guys never get the girl so I shut my mouth”ON THE LOVE INTEREST'S IDENTITY CRISIS•At the beginning of this semester one of the first things my professor of English literature told us was “You won't understand a thing about this literary period 19th century if you don't understand this first you can't read a romance as a novel just like you can't read a novel as a romance They are two different things they have different purposes and therefore they have to be studied according to different criteria Perspective is key” Now I'm obviously not going to explain what's the difference because first that's not the point and second you can just look it up on the Internet on your own but trust me when I say my professor was unsurprisingly right and I've made of that one of my life rules not only when talking books You can't read a textbook like you'd read a work of fiction because it would be ridiculous to complain that “nothing happens”; you can't read a horror book like you'd read a children book because it would be ridiculous to complain that “my kid was so scared we had to let him sleep with us for weeks”; and you can't read a parody or a satire like a regular novel because the complaint that “it's just too absurd and weird” would probably only prove that the parody did its job well and that in this scenario you are the idiot This is why I think the first thing we should do upon approaching The Love Interest is asking ourselves what am I about to read?•I believe this is a very good and fair uestion and not nearly as stupid as it may seem Because you see one of the numerous problems of The Love Interest is that it never makes that uite clear The possibilities as I see it are three1 It's a parody everything in it is meant to mock a certain type of YA novel that came into vogue around the time Twilight by Stephenie Meyer became a media sensation;2 It's an original story that in passing mocks or happens to mock certain YA tropes;3 It's bothKnowing in which of these categories the book falls is so crucial because my opinion of it changes according to the perspective I adopt In case 1 I'd rate it three stars out of five in case 2 a generous solitary star and in case 3 two and a half you see which I've chosen So yes I think The Love Interest is meant to be part original part parodic Unfortunately it isn't able to mix these two halves very well resulting in a hybrid sort of text that's itself as confused as the reader is upon reading it I'm inclined to blame this lack of coherence and cohesion on the author's inexperience The Love Interest is a debut and it couldn't show •The book presents the reader with pure pearls such as this “Once I reach the steps I skid to a stop There are three steps then a set of navy double doorsCaden's Coach Put your arms out in front of youCaden What?Caden's Coach Do itI move my arms forwardThe door swings outward and Juliet steps out She looks like her hologram beautiful in a simple unboastful way She steps forward and her ankle twists on the first step She falls I take a step toward her and she smashes into my chest”And this“static gel an ointment they have at the LIC A Love Interest puts it on his hands or torso before coming into contact with his Chosen so that when they touch the Chosen gets a faint electric shock Thankfully Kaylee decided I don’t need to use it Wearing it is incredibly painful as it shocks the Love Interest constantly before it’s washed off I nearly cried the first time I had to put it on my chest”And this“Caden's Coach Stare at her until she noticesCaden Why? That’s so creepyCaden's Coach She’ll like it trust meI look up and stare at Juliet It takes her a few seconds then her eyes meet mine and she blushes“Why are you looking at me like that?”I shrug my shoulders “I can’t help it”“I—I” she stammers “I have no idea how to respond to that so I’m going to ignore it”And countless Now this is how you parody You take something and show the other side of it the side from which it seems so ridiculous your readers realize it's actually astonishing it has been considered valid and even sensible for so long Because if it's true that the devil is in the details God is too and passages like these I've just uoted convinced me that Dietrich actually put a lot of work into this project Or at least some parts of it; because the book also makes use of an endless series of other stereotypes unconnected to the love triangle or the romance in general and these I don't know how to classify because they don't seem to have a parodic intent they only seem sloppy Not that all the romantic ones are always perfectly employed often they completely miss the target and only manage to make you cringe but at least there I can see the intention But a group of teenagers randomly saving the world? Or happening to live near the one compound where the one villain who's absolutely essential to kill is when the LIC has “Compounds in eleven countries”? Are we sure that “it's all a mockery all intended” didn't become an excuse to get away with it at one point?ON METAFICTIONALIZING FICTION“No one finds the love of their life while they’re a teenager”“You haven’t read any YA novels recently have you?”•Starting from the title The Love Interest openly dallies with metafiction and in my opinion this is something it truly does deliciously all the so because this discourse is closely intertwined with the one concerning sexual identity and self affirmation To explain these points I'm going to need to uote the book because sometimes they speak for themselves better than we readers and reviewers ever could“Anyway isn’t it pretty normal for a straight girl to fall for a gay guy? All the sitcoms treat it like a rite of passage something that all girls must go through You’re pretty and kind and way too good to be true At least I’ve ticked that box now”“I ” I don’t exist to teach her a lesson and it irks me that she thinks labeling me is okay now Like by liking guys I automatically take on that role in her life That I’m suddenly a supporting character in her story rather than the hero of my own”Had this operation been carried out with a pleasing and well finished text and story The Love Interest would have got five stars with no effort at all➽ I would be a filthy liar if I said I am not disappointed because I am Honestly I only expected a cute and fresh MM romance and not much than that but I dare anyone to undervalue a well written MM romance so yes my hopes were high The Love Interest turned out to be aiming way higher that I thought and sadly I believe it missed It needs to be recognised that its attempt is than admirable though and that the idea to play on narrative tropes to tackle topical issues is genius I wish it had been executed better
