I loved Brent Hartinger s trick in this third Russel Middlebrook story Russel Min and Gunnar and Gunnar s girlfriend from the previous book become extras for a zombie movie And in the style of old fashioned horror flicks the book is a double billIn the first part Russel is the narrator telling us how he meets Kevin his ex boyfriend from the first book again and how it confuses him tremendously as he is still deeply in love with his current boyfriend Otto from the second book although he lives 800 miles away To complicate the story Russel s parents find out he is gay and they are not amused Or supportive or understanding or anything Which leads to an interesting conversation with a priest and Russel behaving in ways that are alien to him His dad seems to be the light in the tunnel but Russel must work out his choice on his own Fortunately Gunnar who tried fruitlessly to find a girlfriend in the first book now turns out to be a useful adviserIn the second part Min is the narrator and she tells of her experiences She meets a potential girlfriend on the movie set but the relationship provides challenges for Min s clear views on life She not only benefits from Gunnar s insights but also from talks with her mother her parents have a completely different take on Min s sexuality than Russel s One also understands elements of Russel s story better given what Min has to addOnce again Brent Hartinger weaves an enticing tale filled with interesting characters convincing situations and important things for all readers to considerBrent Hartinger speel n boeiende tekstuele spel deur twee van sy hoofkarakters Russel en Min kans te gee om hul stories afsonderlik te vertel Die vriende word ekstras op die stel van n zombiefliek en sowel Russel as Min word gekonfronteer met liefdesverhoudings en keuses vol uitdagings Hoewel Min met haar ma kan gesels is Russel se ouers sterk negatief wanneer hulle hoor hy is gay Hartinger skep boeiende karakters en oortuigende situasies en laat sy lesers met belangrike sake om te bepeins Min s side of the story OMG so surprisingly goodAt first I thought it was boring even Russel s part But this is the first book so far that has named the other situations in the other books Kevin is Kevin again not that guy and Otto is still in and Em and ever. Book 3 in the Russel Middlebrook Series Winner of the Lambda Book AwardIt's a horror movie extravaganza in this the second seuel to Brent Hartinger's Geography Club Two complete books in one recount the stories of best friends Russel and Min who sign up to be extras on the set of a zombie film and.
Yone The only thing that annoys me i 35 5 We return to the highschool in this third Geography Club book but Belinda and Ike are still missing although Kevin comes back as a major character We have alternating viewpoints this time around from both Min and Russel it is best to start with Russel s as Min s fills in the gaps and packs a bit of a punch as some loose ends are resolved Some of the scenes with Russel s parents come across stilted but they are a minor setback to an enjoyable story SO BEAUTIFUL I really do understand Minabout bisexual That people do not understand why girl or boy are bisexual not gay or lesbian I know that everyone said that bisexual is like confuse but you do like girl or guyjust both than one Yeah I hear you MinWhewKevin is biggest idiotI am so glad that Russ decided to pick right choice to stay in relationship D I really like Russ and Otto Parents ugh good not as good as the first two books but I still love Russel w all my heart the dual perspective was interesting and I liked learning about min gunner is still uirky as ever plot line was p cool would recommend if u liked first two books Years ago I read the first two books in this series so I was happy to finally get my hands on the third installment with Russel and friends This book did not disappoint It is told from both Russel and Min s perspective and readers get to choose which one to read first I started with Russel but switched to Min because I wanted to end the book with my favorite character I was surprised though because I ended up really liking Min s side of the story She had a fresh uniue voice and I loved her interactions with Leah Russel s story still was better and I felt for him and his confusion It was great to see Otto again and Kevin even if he was a erk in the first book Though after what Kevin does in this one I will say that I think he turned around and does love Russel I hope the author decides to create a spin off series with Kevin He deserves some happiness now Audible I m kinda disappointed with the third book I had noticed that an audiobook had in addition to Josh Hurley a new female narrator But I didn t know that Vanessa Johansson would tell me THE SAME STORY but from Min s POVI am not a big fan of female narrating and even less a fan of reading. Learn that there's nothing scarier than high school romanceIn the first book Attack of the Soul Sucking Brain Zombies Russel must choose between his long distance boyfriend and a close to home ex named Kevin who wants to get back together In the second book Bride of the Soul Sucking Brain Zombies.

Or listening the same story from different points of view Especially when the story itself comparing to the previous books is less entertaining and too melodramatic for my tasteBut I like Russel and still it was fun to listen to his thoughtsI can t say the same about Min s POV I found it pretty boring and flat and after struggling through the half of it I decided to give up I hope I ll have Russel PURE in the last book of the series 25 stars really becuase I didn t completely dislike it I ust thought that it was too gimmicky I very much disliked the flip this book gimmick and disliked re reading the same story twice A seuel to Geography Club that Carrying the Greeks Heir just didn t live up to expectations but stood on it s own I did appreciate however that this book is one of the few that had GLBT characters without it being an issue book Can t wait for lots of this type I read this book several years ago shortly after finishing the first two Russel Middlebrook books The thing I remember most about this book the thing that made it work for me was the dual points of view It s rare or at least it was rare at the time to see a story for young adults told from multiple viewpoints and while that isn t exactly the case here it s close Russel and Min s tales are like two overlapping circles on a Venn diagram than a direct one to one parallel but still I had fun reading the one with the other in mind Attack of the Soul Sucking Brain ZombiesBride of the Soul Sucking Brain Zombies truly is two books in oneI enjoyed reading Russel s continuing coming of age story as always but it was Min s tale that stuck with me Min is such a fascinating confident badass female character it was great to see what goes on inside her head I loved reading her observations on Russel s life Brent Hartinger is my favorite writer of ueer themed YA fiction for a reason Kudos This book was a little less entertaining It was extremely short and I know it was because of the split screen with Min s story but the only problem I had with that is I wasn t interested reading Min s story Russel is the character I fell in love with and I want to know about his story notust a little uick blurp and then suddenly Min s story It didn t seem to push the plot much further either Sadly it made me less than enthusiastic about it. Min struggles to accept her cheerleader girlfriend's decision to stay in the closetBut beware Russel and Min's separate stories affect each other in surprising ways and you'll have to read both books together to find out the whole storyThis book was previously published under the title Split Scre.
