Love and Other Unknown Variables by Shannon Lee Alexander
Available from Entangled Teen October 7, 2014

Wow. I think I need a moment to compose myself after finishing this novel.
.
.
Right there, emblazoned on the cover of LAOUV, is a glowing review from Julie Cross (Love her!) that states, “Fans of The Fault in Our Stars will fall in love with Charlie and Charlotte’s story!”

Yes Julie, you are absolutely right, fans WILL fall in love with Charlie and Charlotte. But perhaps not for the reasons you’re thinking.

It’s not that Charlie and Charlotte are like Hazel and Gus—they’re not, it’s that Alexander’s writing is SMART. So smart that you think maybe you should’ve spent more time in school so you deserve to live in a world with someone so genius. (THIS is exactly how I feel about John Green, too.) Therefore, fans will love this story not because of the similarities to TFIOS (because really, there aren’t that many) but because the writing is so, so smart.

Let’s get on with all the reasons LAOUV is so fantastic.

Charlie is a math genius. MIT level smart. At least he will be, once he gets in. He already attends some super smarty-pants high school with all the other dorks and nerds. He’s also ridiculously endearing. (I’ve always had a thing for brains. I can’t help myself. *snorts*) Numbers are Charlie’s thing. He understands them. From what I gather, (because the highest math I’ve taken is some super-duper physics classes), math is constant. Numbers are constant. There is always a solution.

Enter Charlotte, a beautiful, artistic girl, who turns Charlie’s world on his side. Suddenly Charlie’s numbers aren’t adding up and his life is tumbling down around him. And it’s not just love that has him worried. It’s everything. What if MIT isn’t what he expects? What will happen when he’s thousands of miles away from his two best friends? What if the girl he loves is…dying?

LAOUV explores what it means to be courageous, and Alexander drops in enough literary Easter Eggs to have us book nerds squealing in delight. There’s math (Ow. What the hell are all these equations?), science, literature, a heavy dose of heartbreaking love, and enough wit to make you giggle, even if it’s through your tears. Charlie and Charlotte’s love story is a beautiful disaster, where they must learn that growing up isn’t always perfect, and growing old isn’t always an option. There is only now—the beginning.

This book is a must read, even if you’re not a mathlete. I read it in one sitting (because I’m a literaturlete! That’s right. I went there.). Well done, Shannon Lee Alexander, very well done.

"Lifelines aren't lines at all. They're more like circles.- Charlie Hanson"

Everything about Love and Other Unknown Variables screams A Walk To Remember to me, I set this as my basis for the reason that I consider this my "era" rather than The Fault In Our Stars whose characters are younger than me.

I am quite happy with how the story started, two teenagers, one definitely a geek and the other is an artsy and remarkable girl who will steal his heart. The story progressed from a simple exchange of words between the characters to a more sophisticated relationship of sorts.

It is actually fascinating how easy they feel around each other. Sometimes it is a little bit complicated with all the dying issues and other stuffs like how everything appears to be a equation according to Charlie. They both share the same nicknames by the way only with different spellings. I think I kind of found the happy in the ending here despite the actual ending. Because it is really about the ride isn't it. The way these two people handled everything together and apart and the fact that there are great support characters to help LaOUV reach its full possibilities as a well versed story is not bad at all.

Honestly I am not a fan of a story of physical loss but I will be missing on something if I didn't read it so thank you to our author for bringing out these emotions on me. Just know that crying inevitable. But hey we're only humans it can happen. ;-)

HASH(0x90a133a8) von 5 Sternen Perfect for fans of John Green! 7. Oktober 2014
Von Ashley F. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
*I would like to thank Entangled Teen for the copy of Love and Other Unknown Variables and the chance to read and review it!*

This is a quirky, heartbreaking, a humorously beautiful written book that is filled with love, loss and friendship- perfect for fans of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

I have been in a little bit of a reading slump lately and this book was exactly what I needed to pull me out of it. I was instantly pulled into the story and unique writing elements used by Alexander, from the chapter numbering to the use of mathematical and scientific elements that add a nerdy feel that works perfectly with the main character Charlie Hanson! The story was an intense ride of ups and downs, finding yourself and learning that sometimes its okay to deviate from your plans for the future because life throws unexpected twists at you that will change your life forever.

Charlie Hanson is a senior at a school for Mathematics and Science. He is extremely intelligent and is dead set on getting in to MIT and won’t let anything get in his way of this, that is until he met Charlotte Finch. Charlotte is so full of life and is super spunky! She is so different from Charlie yet they both share the same drive in their passions, his is math and hers is art. She wants to live life and explore the world and most of all, be able to make her own decisions regarding her life. After befriending Charlie’s sister Becca, Charlotte is always around and has opened up Charlie’s eyes to wanting more than what he has always planned for his life even if it is only for a short time.This story is heartbreaking/heartwarming at the same time. It shows how one person can change many lives forever and the overall impact from having met that one person. It is a beautiful young love story that has you falling in love with all of the characters for their own qualities and quirks and leaves you in pieces and at an utter loss for words.

The way the story was told and created so beautifully. The writing seemed effortless and flowed so nicely that it made the story gripping and fast paced that I had a hard time putting it down.The writing really brought the characters and story to life. Although this book was focused on a more serious matter the humor sprinkled throughout the book makes you forget about what is really happening. Also being a huge fan of the book To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee! I loved the way it was used throughout the story and the relevance it had to the whole story! I felt like there were many parallels between the two stories in ways other than just the references, last name of Finch, Charlie and the comparisons with Atticus and a few others!

Shannon Lee Alexander has poured her heart and soul into this story and it is very evident while reading this book. The elements of the book and the way the story unfolds are so realistic and so absolutely beautifully done. The characters are fantastic! They each have a special quality and personality that are so well developed and she stay true to their little quirks throughout the whole story, which I really appreciated. I loved that this was from a male perspective and Charlie was the perfect “hero!” I love that he is so nerdy and has to solve all life problems as you would solve a math problem! The relationships he has with his friends, sister, and Mrs. Dunwitty were so phenomenal. He really grew and developed throughout the whole story and had allowed for each person to help him realize new things about life. I felt the dynamic between Charlie and Charlotte were great.They were able to learn things about life from each other and develop not only love, but a friendship as well. The love felt real and strong and developed over time and was not some silly insta-love story. It was real! I have to say my favorite character was Becca, Charlie’s sister. I love that even as a secondary character you saw growth and development in her and want to know more about what is happening with her (which p.s. it is said that the author is writing a book from her perspective!) Greta and James are amazing friends and truly show what it means to be a supportive friend!

I don’t want to say anymore for fear of spoiling the book (although I have so much to say and fangirl over in this book). I will end with I believe this is a must read this year and it will quickly become a top book in the YA Contemporary world! It has everything you want in a story and definitely left me in tears! If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. (As soon as it comes out I will have to go purchase a physical copy so I can just hug it! )

One look, one tentative touch is how it began. Charlie Hanson, super smart (academically) high school senior is focused on getting into MIT. His real life smarts lag behind his brilliance in math and science. He's awkward and nerdy around girls, but on the way to school one morning, he notices an infinity tattoo on the neck of a girl in front of him. There's a word below it that he can't read, so he impulsively brushes hair aside so he can.
This is how he and Charlotte Finch meet. She surprises him by not getting annoyed and when he gets to English class he's further surprised at the resemblance between the new teacher and tattoo girl. Things get more interesting (read complicated) when he sees the Charlotte in his kitchen. Becca, his younger and socially awkward sister has found a friend for the first time.
As the school year progresses, Charlie can't stop obsessing about Charlotte, particularly since she's at his house more than hers. His distraction involves running over a neighbor's rose garden as well as becoming de facto ringleader in a tradition at school that eventually leaves him incredibly conflicted.
When he discovers what's really going on with Charlotte and how it has created the tension between her and her older sister the English teacher, his life is completely shaken from its foundations. Math, which has always been how Charlie defines the universe, can't help him this time. Instead, he has to enter the minefield of feelings that uncertainty and Charlotte have dropped before him.
These are strong, memorable characters and their story is beautiful, sad and likely to stay with readers for some time. Comparisons with The Fault In Our Stars are very appropriate. I really liked how the author wove aspects of To Kill A Mockingbird into the story.

To be honest, I had no idea what this book was about going into it. I saw the cover and thought this may be the equivalent to a YA version of The Rosie Effect. After briefly skimming the synopsis, I believed this would be another cute quick read. While there were some cute, quirky moments, the second half of the novel does delve more deeply into the emotional impact of Charlotte's illness. I am grateful for this as I found the first half disappointing and slightly annoying.

For me, Charlie was an inadequate narrator. Part of the problem was he supposed genius- I felt much of his mathematics and science jargon was forced and not flushed out enough. Just name dropping famous mathematicians and equations or saying advanced [insert class here] did not feel authentic in proving Charlie's intelligence. Most of his narration came across as unnatural and awkward to me.

I did find his sister, Becca, and Ms. Finch to be great secondary characters that made this be much more than just a teenage love story of the terminally ill. My favorite character, however, was most likely Mrs. Dunwitty, Charlie's cantankerous old neighbor who is much more than what everyone assumes.

Overall, I did enjoy this book, with much of the good cancelling out the bad.
