Sequel to Who We Are

Tyson Thompson graduated high school at sixteen and left the town of Seafare, Oregon, bound for what he assumed would be bigger and better things. He soon found out the real world has teeth, and he returns to the coast with four years of failure, addiction, and a diagnosis of panic disorder trailing behind him. His brother, Bear, and his brother's husband, Otter, believe coming home is exactly what Tyson needs to find himself again. Surrounded by family in the Green Monstrosity, Tyson attempts to put the pieces of his broken life back together.

But shortly after he arrives home, Tyson comes face to face with inevitability in the form of his childhood friend and first love, Dominic Miller, who he hasn't seen since the day he left Seafare. As their paths cross, old wounds reopen, new secrets are revealed, and Tyson discovers there is more to his own story than he was told all those years ago.

In a sea of familiar faces, new friends, and the memories of a mother's devastating choice, Tyson will learn that in order to have any hope for a future, he must fight the ghosts of his past.

Die "Bear, Otter and the kid", "Who we are" und jetzt "The Art of Breathing"- ist eine unglaubliche Reise in das Leben einer Familie, die nicht nur aus Blutsverwandschaft besteht. Man verliebt sich in jeden einzelnen Charakter und die Geschichte fesselt einen, bis zur letzten Zeile. Ein MUST-HAVE

Okay....I try to be coherent.

If you have read the first two books, you know what's going to happen.
This book put me inside out and back again. I hurt and I suffered (but lucky for me it was manageable) and I found my breath again.

I love how the titles of the books so much define the content, still in the following ones.

I could go on about all the people,
about Ty (who is a lot more like Bear than we all thought - but it's true, we were just to blind to see it, he covered it up so well behind his smart comments),
about Dom (we always knew they were inevitable and damn, that boy was young, too. I'm not blaming him for anything),
about Bear and Otter (it's so nice to see you all again, Bear, a teacher, really??? *snickers and think it's funny.*),
Creed and Anna (oh Creed, it's good to know that some people never grow up)
and Mrs. Paquin (who in this book got all the importance she deserved)

I could write about Ty's journey to become a person, who can stand on his own feet...but hey, this is what the book is about, too.

Not even the fact, that this book has a lot of Tyson's internal musings can dampen the fact that I couldn't put it down, that I feel so very happy. Everything in this book was inevitable. So...

And to all authors who want to end their books with cliffhangers - this is the way it's done. This is an end that makes me happy, satisfied and looking forward in the best way to the next book.

Thank you T.J. Klune. It was a real pleasure reading this book. I wish you and Eric the best.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loving TJ Kulne's Words Is Simply Inevitable 17. Juni 2014
Von Jewel Halperin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Sometimes there are authors who make you fall in love. Simply put as that.

And then there's TJ Klune.

Have you ever read his books? No? Well… the only thing I can say is, I'm jealous of you being able to experience his words for the first time. Go now and look up the first book in the series: Bear, Otter, and the Kid, and buy it. Love it. Reread it until you know each character as if they were part of your family, then move on the second book.

And now for this one.

The Art of Breathing brings you Tyson’s (the Kid’s) story. We saw it coming—probably from the first time Dominic was introduced to us… But nothing about their story is predictable. Nothing about their words is repetitive or mundane.

TJ managed to give Tyson a unique voice that was both alike and inherently different from that of his brother’s. He is neurotic. He is funny, he is a vegetarian hippy at heart. He is an ingenious ecoterorist who loves as fiercely as Bear. He will brainwash you (I swear, I can't even think about meat in the near future—Carl the Cow (almost bull), and Jermaine the Rooster are… well, they’re everywhere!), he will make you so angry. He will make you hang on to every page.

This book spans a much larger time frame than any other BOATK book. It touches psychological, emotional and familial problems that will tear your heart out. It will make you laugh until your stomach hurts. It will make you cry helplessly because, by God, the words are chosen just right. TJ seems to only get better. And better. And so, so, so much better.

You will love each and every person (because I swear, they are not just characters). You will take them as your own, wish you were a part of their family—wish that the story would never end since the mere thought of parting with all of them is so inconceivable your heart breaks…

So go. Enjoy every second.

5.0 von 5 Sternen AMAZING! 17. Juni 2014
Von lala-lately - Veröffentlicht auf

Simply amazing! Oh man, how I love these guys. If you're reading, or considering reading this one, you must already be acquainted with Bear, Otter, and the Kid. TJ Klune is a gifted writer. No question. The relationships between the characters here are so nuanced and multi-faceted, and, this book is long so there's plenty of story to delve into. Yes, it's angsty. Yes, it's melodramatic. Of course, there are tears. And earthquakes. The Kid hasn't had it easy so all of that is to be expected. But ultimately, after reading well into the night, the impression I'm left with is a great appreciation for L-O-V-E. Between brothers...between doesn't matter. Klune's writing reminds you to appreciate every moment with loved ones, every safe haven, and to hold on tight to whatever or whomever anchors you. For me, that's what makes his writing so rewarding. So yes, I recommend this one. And full disclosure: as much as I appreciate Klune's writing in this series, I don't always think it translates as well for other novels. His other books are certainly very good; I've probably bought most If not all of them, but for me, writing this family is where he's at his absolute best. I say that because there always seems to be a fan brigade that gushes and praises in their reviews of their favorite authors unequivocally without assessing each work individually on its own merit. To each his own--I'm not detracting from other readers' style or preference. For me, though, that's not the point of writing a review. I try not to gush unless I really really really think it's warranted. And guess what? For this book, it so is!

So what did I love here? I) Good characterization, I mean the descriptions are enough to invoke a clear mental reel of every scene. II) Incredibly authentic and often funny dialogue. Ty has always been precocious and strangely verbose, and now as a young adult, he's serving up a great sense of humor and fair amount of snark. III) Excellent plot development. And I do mean development in every sense of the word--this story at its core is about growth. These are the years in which the Kid, or Tyson rather, grows up. I love that this starts and ends in the same place but with such a crazy journey in between. And last, IV) familiarity. Klune is at home writing about his boys, and his fondness for them is evident throughout. They are beloved and familiar, and it was great to reconnect with this family that is seemingly unorthodox, but in reality, is just a 'normal' family like any other. The have their good points and bad, neuroses, hopes, disappointments, and everything else that both set them apart and bind them together. Reading about them was a great way to spend a few hours and certainly got me out of my reading slump. Finally, something worth staying up late to read! 5 stars.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Painful for many reasons 3. Juli 2014
Von pb_reader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I think I remember why I didn't write reviews for the last two books in this series: it's hard. If this is your first look at a review for this series or even this book, I'm sorry. And I advise you to run away to another one. I have no idea where this is going to go...

Ty. The Kid. He's a bit of a mess. This isn't a surprise. The 9-yo vegetarian eco-terrorist-in-training was always heading for some sort of meltdown. Luckily, this kid has the best support system anyone could ever hope for. Bear and Otter are amazing parents and have built an amazing family. And he has Dominic. *swoon* I don't know if it's wrong to be crushing on Dom, and I just don't care. We met him as a teen in Who We Are, and he stole my heart then. This is a special guy in so very many ways.

This book gave me feels. There were teary feels and laugh out loud and OMG and ok, stop talking feels. And the former allows me to excuse the latter. These are patterns I'm getting from this series and Tell Me It's Real. Klune has me laughing my ass off and shedding tears, and I find I forget about the bits where the narrator wanders off down a path of word babble. And it's some epic babble. It's not only self-recognized by the characters, the babble is almost it's own character in the stories. Sometimes it's endearing. Sometimes I find myself skimming.

So maybe let's talk about the writing. I know it gives me all the feels. And I've figured out that contributes to by squee. But how do I REALLY feel? Occasionally frustrated. There's incredible talent behind these words. Of that, I have no doubt. Love them or hate them, I don't see how you can't have emotional responses to these characters. And that takes skill. I'm invested. So there's the talent. There's also repetition. OMG is there repetition. Subtle, this is not. You will be beat over the head with the concept of breathing and inevitable and a host of other things. Prepare yourself.

So I'll excuse the rambling and somewhat shoddy editing, because I enjoy the feels. I'll excuse the fact this book is likely 100 pages longer than it has any right to be (and geez where is the publisher on this??), because any author who can make me laugh and cry is worth my time. What I don't find excusable? Mocking your readers. Because that's who WE are. Some of us happen to be women. And some of those women don't want to read a guy going on and on about how every feeling emasculates him DOWN to a vagina. A gaping bloody whole bunch of not funny right there.

I'm not going to tell anyone not to read this. In fact, I'll probably reread all of these again, and I'll read what's next. Because I do like the writing overall, and I like the feels a bunch. I'll read the next, because Seafare is a good place to be, and I'm not going to hold one misogynistic moment against the entirety of the book. I'm just taking a moment here to say THAT moment sucked. And was painful in a wholly unnecessary and hurtful way towards readers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A present from Tj Klune 23. Juni 2014
Von Diana Copland - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Let me say up front that I'm a huge fan of the entire 'Bear, Otter and the Kid' universe. I was in love with the kid when he was five, and he was all babbling, pulling on Bear's fingers. That affection hasn't dimmed now that he's teetering on the brink of full fledged adulthood. I love Bear and Otter, I love Dominic, Anna, Creed, JJ. I love them all. I was also delighted to see the wonderfully idiosyncratic characters from 'Who We Are' make an appearance. Sandy is one of my favorite of Tj's characters, and I do agree that if Paul and Bear were ever in the same room, life as we know it might spin off into a tight, high pitched chipmunk-toned spiral of collapse. But like the three books populated by these characters before, it would be funny. Really, really funny.

Tyson, (the Kid) is now twenty, and the years have not been kind. How could they be? When these boys, Bear and the Kid, have been abandoned by their mother and have lost the wonderful Mrs. Paquin. God, I want a Mrs. Paquin, the lovable old nut. But she is gone now, and dearly missed by the young men she helped to raise. Even though Tyson graduated as his high school class valedictorian and was highly recruited by Dartmouth, his genius has caused him almost as many problems as it opened opportunities. And in a heartbreaking twist of fate, his stabilizing friendship with Dominic, the boy now become a police officer, suffers a rift from which Tyson doubts it could ever recover. Even I doubted for a while. I should have known better.

The thing I love about Tj Klune's books is that his characters seem so real. Of course, I doubt anyone could be as consistently funny and eloquent as this group of people, but I want to believe they could be. Tj's conversation is lightning fast and hilarious, but he also manages to maintain each of his character's personalities. And no one, NO ONE writes a better dinner party. That is not easy, to write ten characters in conversation. For their voices to never be mixed up in a readers head is skill, pure and simple. There are a few similarities between Tyson and Bear, but you can still 'hear' the differences. Dom never wavers. His poor broken voice and his enormous size are only aspects of him. His personality is vividly written, even though he doesn't talk much. Just enough to make your heart ache.

It may not be a perfect book; I doubt such a thing exists. But what it is is a perfect love letter to Tyson and Dominic and Bear and Otter and the rest of the wonderful cast of characters, written from Tj's heart. More than anything, that is what is on display in this funny, poignant, and redemptive book; Tj Klune's big, warm, hilarious and sentimental heart.

5.0 von 5 Sternen First person told like you have never read before 26. September 2014
Von Stephen J. Voss - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Third book in the series about Bear, Otter and The Kid. This one is from The Kid's point of view. Hysterically funny. Laughed so hard I couldn't breathe. You know how you want the story to end, but throughout, TJ Klune keeps you wondering if it really will happen. And I would so enjoy being a member of this very whacked out extended family!
