Hello, I Love You: A Novel
Hello, I Love You was a book that was on my top anticipated book list. How could I pass up a book about an American girl falling for an Asian pop star? It’s the coolest thing because I listen to that type of music, and I think authors need to have a little more diversity in a book. I have the horrible “but” coming. But, I was very much disappointed in what I read. From the very beginning, we are introduced to Grace, a girl who is transferring to a school across the world. How do I put this? Our main character is as shallow as they come. She’s rude and insensitive. Some of the things she says about the Korean culture could be looked at as highly offensive. Was the author trying to be funny? Because, she proved to me that this is probably a huge reason why many people don’t like Americans all that much. I want to scream at the top of my lungs that we aren’t all like that. I was sickeningly disappointed. Not only is she rude, but she’s also judgmental and it makes her look very ignorant. I could go on and on about how much I hated this girl. It pretty much clouted the rest of the story. It’s sad because I think there could have a been a great story there, but it just falls short. I liked Jason well enough, too bad he liked such a horrible girl. If you’re looking for a book about a normal every day girl finding love in the most unexpected ways, well you found that book, but Grace is anything by graceful.
