QBD Reviews: Jonathan Unleashed by Meg Rosoff

unleashedThis was an odd but good little story, I love quirky characters and I love quirky story lines but I don’t think I can really deal with two of them together.

Jonathan Unleashed is a coming of age story for those just starting out as grown ups. If you feel like you’ve lost your way, this might be a nice story for you to read.

Essentially, Jonathan misses the point a lot. I actually hated his motives for marrying Julie, and he disliked her as much as everyone around him who was telling him he was making a mistake. Julie is horrid, Jonathan’s parents made me angry. Max and Greeley were the stand out characters, loved them both.

An aspect I particularly liked was the kiss between Jonathan and Greeley. It was out of the blue, but perfectly placed and I think plays a pivotal part in Jonathan being able to find himself.

The dogs were a fun way to deliver the story, they were the catalysts (dogalysts?) of the plot and I love them both. Puppiiiiiieeeeesssss!

Not what I expected from Rosoff, but not unwelcome in my reading adventures!
