You know, this book is kind of one of the ones that you reexcited about reading than you are after actually having read it James is one of the most frustrating protagonists ever He hates everything His peers, his parents, his life, college he hates Stanfordthan Brown, by the way , his lifedid I already mention that Well, he hates it double.In fact, one of the only things he doesn t hate is his

read it James is one of the most frustrating protagonists ever He hates everything His peers, his parents, his life, college he hates Stanfordthan Brown, by the way , his lifedid I already mention that Well, he hates it double.In fact, one of the only things he doesn t hate is his boss, John, who he has a crush on Well, no, of course he doesn t say or even acknowledge that he has a crush on John during the entire novel, but we as the reader just know In fact, he likes John so much that he says John is one of the only people he can stand likes being around in general.What does he do about this Well, instead of proclaiming love I told you, James doesn t love anything , he creepily searches Johns internet history okay, okay, he only presses the back button a few times, but still and sees that he s been on a website called gents4gents Now, any normal person Wowzers If he s so desperate for relations that he s going on an online website filled with weirdos to find love then that means I have a chance Now to go woo him James LOLZ I think I ll make an account on here that s the perfect match of what John is looking for, pose to be him and get invited to a restaurant to meet him LOLOLOLOL Of course, I ll show up to said restaurant as myself and not as this hulking hunk I pretended to be online to HUMILIAAAAATE John LOLOLOLOLZZZZ super serious But of course, we all know it s only a joke, amirite EHEHEHEHEH Of course he doesn t decide to show up to the party as himself instead of the hulking hunk until later But, still My point stands.It s not like James is stupid He knows what he s doing He s just tactless He doesn t know how to treat people He honestly seemed to think that he and John would just laugh it off He isn t an asshole He s just terribly misplaced and misguided.But that doesn t stop the urge to falcon punch him from coming on chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter image error Ahhhh Much better.This book requires a lot of patience Too much patience for the average person 2.7 stars Everyone compares this one to Catcher in the Rye, which is interesting to me because I haven t read Catcher, and I think I would hate it, and yet I completely see why the two books are compared, and I loved Someday This Pain James has too many advantages to have the problems that he has His family has money, an apartment in Manhattan, a part time

which is interesting to me because I haven t read Catcher, and I think I would hate it, and yet I completely see why the two books are compared, and I loved Someday This Pain James has too many advantages to have the problems that he has His family has money, an apartment in Manhattan, a part time job at his mother s gallery, and he s been accepted to Brown for next year though not Harvard, Yale, or Columbia His parents are divorced though whose aren t, these days unfortunately, his mother has just seen the end of her third marriage after a disastrous Las Vegas honeymoon And James himself is not doing too well The narrative voice has a kind of iciness to it, so it takes a while to understand just how sad and frightened and lonely James is but you see him searching for old houses in the midwest He does not want to go to college He wants to sit in his old midwest house and read novels And,than anything, he wants to correct people on what they say It s what he spends the entire novel doing They misuse words they re not precise enough His father asks him whether he s gay His mother asks him whether he s gay He debates the nature of the question with them until, defeated, they accept a change of subject.James is gay He deigns to tell us this on page 192, of 228 His fear of intimacy is so great that it extends even to us, the readers.However, this isn t a novel about being gay That may have something to do with how sad and frightened James is, but as James himself admits, he is so far from approaching another human being that his sexuality is two hundred percent theoretical If anything, it seems symptomatic James cannot face anything about himself.This seems to me like the kind of novel I should be ready to criticize for being whiny and emo Yet somehow it isn t I want to use those words they say book critics should never use, like delicate and luminous James s voice is stiff and awkward enough that it never reaches that emo whiny level you can see the clever swagger on the surface, and you can also see the sadness lurking underneath And at the same time, there are these moments of description that go way beyond a mere insightful detail they bore right through to James s state of mind This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Periodically, I read reviews from the New York Times book list and pick out likely candidates The reviews are often the best thing about the book, though, so I d recommend the review in this case This is a well written book I finished it and I do not suffer

messed up, this one had it all and was too bored to be bothered Who cares that he is gay and uncertain, that he doesn t want to go to college because he doesn t like kids his own age The book ends with him going to college because he couldn t muster enough energy not to which was basically his entire existence He couldn t muster enough energy to care or not care about anything So I didn t either This won t be going in the favorite pile It seemed to lead nowhere The ending was unsatisfying and I was left feeling as if the narrator just stopped narrating I don t regret reading it, I just

something away from it though I learned that I am not the only one that thinks something but can t articulate it James, the protagonist in this book very often answers every question with I don t know despite having dwelled said question from every angle possible He has the right reply but only ever in thought He has trouble communicating his thoughts accurately It s not for a lack of vocabulary, for he is highly educated It s not for a lack of feeling he feels exactly what he s supposed to I find that words flow so effortlessly in my mind and weave such perfect, intelligent and reasonable thoughts It is only when I attempt to articulate these thoughts that I witness the death of them The words die before they even leave my mouth I watch as a person s brow furrows and they tilt their head ever so slightly to the side, confused Once it s left the womb of my mind, the thought becomes tainted, muddled and broken It s no longer the pure thought of reflection that dwelled in my head By the time I ve finished speaking it s morphed into something all together different This is why James always says I don t know He does know He just doesn t want to watch his thoughts die This is a lovely book The only thing that bothers me is that James is not concerned about money beyond how he would afford a house in the Midwest it s hard for me to relate to someone so well set up But that allows us to focus on what makes him an interesting character in my opinion, at least He s so self aware that he s naive at times his internal life rich, his external life vacant I adore him, want to talk him through some of his problems, realizing that I wouldn t get along with him This is a lovely book The only thing that bothers me is that James is not concerned about money beyond how he would

that he s naive at times his internal life rich, his external life vacant I adore him, want to talk him through some of his problems, realizing that I wouldn t get along with him if he were real because we re too much alike Making use of pain is a do it yourself thing There s a chilling moment around page 140, I think during a therapy session when he remembers his father reaching out to him, and then as he leaves his therpist reaches out to him, too But the adults seem to realize he is unreachable Being on the inside of this feeling, James maybe feels less helpless than they do It s one of those moments so true I lost my breath for a few seconds such a lovely book, and such a quirky and interesting look at the pain of adolescence, which is the same as the pain of being human except less covered by layers of fake adaptation as the book itself points out at some point james, the protagonist narrator, is barelyadjusted to living in the world as is than christopher of the curious incident of the dog in the night time , but the novel deftly and lovingly avoids pathologizing his difference in fact, the only thing we know for sure such a lovely book, and such a quirky and

protagonist narrator, is barelyadjusted to living in the world as is than christopher of the curious incident of the dog in the night time , but the novel deftly and lovingly avoids pathologizing his difference in fact, the only thing we know for sure about james is that he s really, really unhappy his unhappiness is so deep, he can t be bothered to articulate it he can think about it, but talking, well that s another matter altogether for one, words betray the purity of thoughts a delightful recognition on cameron s part of a very adolescent way of finding that one s new emotions dwarf one s linguistic endowment for two, thinking and speaking are two very different processes that happen at very different times and require very different skills for three, talking is just so damn exhausting.cameron captures beautifully the hopeless sense of uniqueness there s no one in the world like me of the teenager who has had limited exposure to the comforting similarity of other strange and unique people.there are no explanations of and no investigations into the roots of james pain, yet the character seems so alive, and with such a rich past, it s as if the writer had it all figured out but felt like keeping it from us, out of consideration for his character.the novel pivots around two main set pieces that are aching and beautiful one is pure despair, the other is pure desire in the latter, james is so little in touch with the good things in him that his desire is invisible even to himself he sublimates it in net searches for a perfect house in the midwest, away from the wonderful dreariness of the city, a place to which you can belong so profoundly, it makes you feel like you don t belong anywhere else not even inside yourself.some painful scenes in a therapist s office like many fictional and not fictional therapists, the woman believes in the sly bullying of her patients james, though, seems to be able to thaw even this most determinedly entrenched mental health professional into being human good on him Actual rating 2.5I stated before that I d have a tough time rating this novel That still stands It began as a 4 star, then 3, and finally.In an effort for me to get my feelings across, I ve decided to list the following Pros and Cons in an irregular and non consecutive order because, like my process of thoughts, it s a jumbled fucking mess.1 I

rating this novel That still stands It began as a 4 star, then 3, and finally.In an effort for me to get my feelings across, I ve decided to list the following Pros and Cons in an irregular and non consecutive order because, like my process of thoughts, it s a jumbled fucking mess.1 I really connected with the writing Peter Cameron has a way with words that makes each sentence feel so very real It just works I don t know how else to articulate it.2 The plot is fairly nonexistent Really, nothing much happens here the entirety of the novel It sof a character study than anything except, James Sveck, our protagonist if you even can classify him as that , isn t that interesting.3 I struggled with connecting to any of the characters, really James had moments of potential I felt a kinship with him at times, in fact, especially his thoughts on societal workings, solitude, lack of a bond with his generation, and his disinterest inexperience in romanticisms But, the bottom line is he s a judgmental and pretentious individual for 90% of the book I tried to look past these negative traits I tried to defend how he categorized and criticized everyone and everything because he s pretty troubled but in the end, I couldn t forgive his outright unapologetic and rude cynicism towards people and life in general.4 There were moments, though, where I found my own thoughts expressed so perfectly through James He and I share commonalities in how we view certain things There was one passage in particular in which he talks about the randomness of everything , and how each person every stranger you pass could potentially have been your lover, your soulmate, a best friend, or simply somebody you deeply connected with but you ll never know, because you keep going on by Just the sort of things I ve ruminated on over and over and over If James wasn t such a albeit, clueless jerk sometimes, I d have liked him as a friend.5 Something that irked me Partway through the book, he mentions how, whenever alone with his dog, he says demeaning things to it just because he can Now, that may be an irrationally nit picky thing to point out, but I hold dogs and basically all animals in a higher regard than most people He mentions further along in the story that he loves dogs, so, I don t really know what to believe.6 I have a somewhat cynical attitude, myself, but I m not one to be a dick to anyone, or judge anyone, for that matter James condescends towards practically everyone around him And it s not just James that I took issue with on this front, but nearly every other character encountered in this book was an upper class and privileged bore I don t know if that was intended or not maybe as satire , but I don t like reading about wealthy snobs living the good life in NYC, because I have to WORK and DEAL with wealthy New York City snobs on a daily basis I have a bitter resentment towards people with lots of money especially young, rich, white men like James who don t know how good they have it Yes, I understand everyone has their own personal battles they wage every day, and I m somewhat passing judgment here when I said beforehand that I don t It s not hypocrisy, but an observation I ve made after having dealt with it for many years I mean, they order fancy and expensive salads from trendy fucking restaurants, drink Starbucks at art galleries 3x a day, live in brownstones and have access to nice things And every time they open their mouths it s either something pompous or gaudy I want real New Yorkers Not these affected pseudo hipsters.7 The use of the R word pissed me off you all know which I mean, and I despise it It s used quite a few times throughout the story, and each time I disliked the book a littlethan before because of it Find an appropriate euphemism next time, Mr Cameron There arePC ones out there.8 There was a shift in attitudes towards the end that I felt came out of left field There wasn t a noticeable enough transition, characterization wise, for me to discern why a few of the characters started acting in a new light.9 I wish James mental illness because it s quite clear that he displays many signs of having one was elaborated onthoroughly What was the point of the therapy sessions I don t think there was any great epiphany reached because of it The issues James faced in the story were pretty commonplace and banal, otherwise Nothing was really accomplished come the conclusion Like, at all None of the problems, aside from view spoiler James breaking out of his shell a wee bit hide spoiler , felt resolved in any way it is completely unsatisfying.10 I m too tired to think of anything else, but I like numbers divisible by 5, so I needed to make one last point just for the sake of it {Free

makes a blunder when he creates a profile on a website to pursue his older co worker, he didn t mean to be malicious but his whole plan backfires on him It was sweet in a way but misguided.I remember having the same opinion of college as James, I didn t go I hated high school and I didn t see how college would ve been any better The houses James wanted to live in sounded beautiful but I could tell he was still uncertain about that as well despite his insistence on it The choices he made in the end seemed liked the right ones for him, whether he sticks to it, shrugs Who knows The ending wrapped things up nicely, the final line made me smile because I m sure all of us thought this at that age at some point or another.Couple of my favorite passages from James I found this spectacle somewhat depressing, because I had always thought, or hoped, that adults weren t necessarily as hobbled by mindless conformity as so many of my peers seem to be I always looked forward to being an adult, because I thought the adult was was, well adult That adults weren t cliquey or nasty, that the whole notion of being cool, or in, or popular would cease to be the arbiter of all things social, but I was beginning to realize that the adult world was as nonsensically brutal and socially perilous as the kingdom of childhood Most people think things are not real unless they are spoken, that it s the uttering of something, not the thinking of it, that legitimizes it I suppose this is why people always want other people to say I love you I think just the opposite that thoughts are realest when thought, that expressing them distorts or dilutes them, that it is best for them to stay in the dark climate controlled airport chapel of your mind, that if they re released into the air and light they will be affected in a way that alters them, like film accidentally exposed This line is perfect I m only eighteen How do I know what I will want in my life How do I know what things I will need An interesting novel, would recommend Happy reading
