Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

(10)
A lyrical novel about family and friendship from critically acclaimed author Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.

PLOT: Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be. REVIEW: The book has won numerous awards, including the Lambda Literary Award and Stonewall Book Award for LGBT fiction, an Amelia Elizabeth Walden Award Honour, Pura Belpré Author Award for Latino fiction, and Michael L. Printz Award Honour for Young Adult fiction. About Ari: "Yeah, I had all kinds of tragic reasons for feeling sorry for myself. Being fifteen didn't help. Sometimes I thought that being fifteen was the worst tragedy of all." About Dante: "And it seemed to me that Dante's face was a map of the world. A world without any darkness.Wow, a world without darkness. How beautiful was that? " I read an extract from "Fangirl" by R. Rowell, and all I though was, how pathetic Cat was. SO boring and dull! I mean she rather eats in a toilet than go and find the Mensa, that´s so there isn´t even a word for that! Ari isn´t exactly bursting with life but other than Cat he is funny and he somehow has a point. There is a darkness in him that I suspect exists in everyone, in Ari it is just more thoroughly shaped. Anyway I got it, his anger and I think Dante was the perfect counterpart for him! It changed Ari in the best possible way! FAZIT: "Words were different when they lived inside of you."

Lovely, lovely, lovely
von Svenja T am 20.08.2017
Bewertet: Taschenbuch

I am in love with these characters. The parents, Ari, Dante, Legs, all of them are wonderful and they all love each other so much, it's really heartwarming. The writing didn't always work for me. There were passages with too many short sentences and that just disrupted the flow. Which... I am in love with these characters. The parents, Ari, Dante, Legs, all of them are wonderful and they all love each other so much, it's really heartwarming. The writing didn't always work for me. There were passages with too many short sentences and that just disrupted the flow. Which is literally my only critism.

Something that couldn't be more different, sometimes is what- in the end- fits best. About finding love and finding oneself brought together in an amazing story.
