The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg

Goodreads Summary: Dying of a broken heart is just the beginning…. Welcome to forever.

BRIE’S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn’t love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally.

But now that she’s D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there’s Patrick, Brie’s mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after.

With Patrick’s help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she’s ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?

My Views: I read this book for a Geeks Who Read Club.

When I started reading this book, I thought it would be nice and something different. But as I read on, I found my interest to be wavering.

Too many things,characters and plots vied for my attention. I could not find myself identifying with the characters or their situations.

The first part of the book is alright but later on, it just goes down the drain for me.

The story changes its perspective completely and though I know what’s happening, it makes no sense. I think there are a few glitches with the plot but I can’t pinpoint them out. I was too busy trying to finish reading the book towards the end. It just went on and on.

Others have loved this book and found it cute. So you can pick it up and decide for yourself. For me, this book didn’t work out.

1.5/5 Stars – Somewhere between ‘I didn’t like it’ and ‘It was Ok’.



Often seen with a nose buried in a book, you might spy me at a library while 500 unread books adorn my shelf. At other times, I'm busy travelling solo, eating out or looking for my new escapades. You will always find me doing too much all at once.
