The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan – review

It isn’t written like most other books, but if you open your heart you’ll get the hang of it in no time. Read it and smile and remember yourself at that age. Apr 23, Kaje Harper rated it it was amazing Shelves: While I do prefer the usual narrative format, I was surprised by how much I liked the style of this one. Puisi bagi saya, adalah untuk orang yang sophisticated.

It’s 20 davkd prose-poems, each from a different character’s POV, and as the book progresses we pick up different plotlines through hints back to earlier events in earlier poems though some go nowhere, and that really annoyed me. Jul 04, Reaml Raveendran rated it did not like it Shelves: I think it will stick with me for a while.

However, there was one character that stood out to me. I cannot recall her name, but she was the girl who invited the “metalhead” to church with her. We are experiencing technical difficulties. The characters really understood where they were in the world and what love is, and I did like that.

Unfortunately, I can’t say that in general most teens would take sex over love. If high school is a dim memory for you, you might need a scorecard to keep track of who knows who and how well. It is unique, a niche book.

The two boys teetering on the brink of their first anniversary. By night, he lives in New Jersey.


Another thing that I’d like to add is that not one poem follows the same type davkd free verse. Basically, the reason this gets such a low rating is that the characters would each talk for about ten pages which, in verse, isn’t very much.

I can’t pretend to know what love is. I love novels written in poetry form. The girl who writes love songs for a girl she can’t have.
