    Inhaltsangabe

    Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe meets I'll Give You the Sun in an exhilarating and emotional novel about the growing relationship between two teen boys, told through the letters they write to one another. 

    Jonathan Hopkirk and Adam "Kurl" Kurlansky are partnered in English class, writing letters to one another in a weekly pen-pal assignment. With each letter, the two begin to develop a friendship that eventually grows into love. But with homophobia, bullying, and devastating family secrets, Jonathan and Kurl struggle to overcome their conflicts and hold onto their relationship...and each other. 

    This rare and special novel celebrates love and life with engaging characters and stunning language, making it perfect for fans of Jandy Nelson, Nina LaCour, and David Levithan.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "A love story, a therapy session, a reason to read Whitman - the sweetness of unexpected amour is here, as is the saline of sadness.... Your reason to root for love - and the power of the pen." (Kirkus, starred review) 

    "This is an absolutely extraordinary work of fiction that proves the epistolary novel is an art form. Kurl and Jo are characters to die for, emotionally compelling and empathetic. Their quotidian lives are riveting and their story unforgettable...not to be missed." (Booklist, starred review)  

    "...as a medium for reporting day-to-day occurrences and conveying intimate feelings and classic themes - love, lust, and betrayal, among others - the letters shine." (Publishers Weekly

    Loved it

    I really loved the book, especially the first half. Ending is good but not up to paar with the rest, but overall a very good story. Both Narrators are very good.

    I cried so hard & laughed in between...

    This is such a great book about two persons who are brave enough to open up to one another, in a way that helps them grow and heal. The other characters in this book are also important, not just there to move the plot along, they are real, with their own obstacles.
    I felt with them & I felt my own story.
    I started thinking about visiting some of the multitudes I hid somewhere deep within myself.
    The language is beautiful too - which makes this book even more beautiful.
    I am truly grateful for this book and what it did to/with me.

    A Marvel

    This book wrecked me - in a way that only a book can that is written so beautifully and makes you care so much for the characters that everything that happens to them feels like it is happening directly to you.
    One of the saddest, most touching and moving books I have ever read, dealing with heavy topics in an incredibly sensitive, beautiful way while not shying away from exploring them deeply.
