I found the “jokes” to be forced and completely uneeded , Like the whole sex dungeon thing at the beginning …. Ich habe mich mehrfach gefragt, wie realistisch es ist, dass diese Jugendlichen diesen Zombiefilm drehen und das alles auch noch so professionell und dann dachte ich „Ist doch egal, ich liebe es und alles, was ich will, ist, das Jesse glücklich ist! The pop culture references are fab as are the nods to his fellow British authors throughout the novel. A Big Gay Rom-Zom-Com with Heart: Sex Education meets Love, Simon - with fake zombies - in this savagely funny gay YA romance about body image, self-acceptance and falling in love. The whole foreshadowing of what was going to happen was all very much in your face which kind of ruined the reading experience for me as I pretty much was reading waiting for my expectations to be met and they eventually were.

For starters, I misread the back of this and totally thought I was getting a different story than I got. Cue Jesses hospital visit and diagnosis, heart surgery is imminent but first, the movie must be filmed - and that’s just mission one, mission two is to have a love connection before the surgery and recovery period. His other titles for children and Young Adults include Hideous Beauty, Witchfinder: Dawn of the Demontide, Witchfinder: Gallows at Twilight; Witchfinder: The Last Nightfall; Haunted; The Nightmare Eater; and Turn Her Face To The Wall. I was so intrigued by the whole situation with his friends, I really wanted to understand it all and could barely stop reading so I found out.

The mortality issue is very well dealt with and refreshing to find in the queer YA genre - it's been overlooked and William Hussey opens the theme up well.

Das englische Hörbuch hat die Stimmung der Geschichte perfekt aufgegriffen und Chris Nelson hat Jesse und allen anderen so viel Charakter gegeben, dass ich mich ein wenig in seine Stimme verliebt habe. Really, this book was so incredibly cute and funny and sweet and heartwarming and painful and „I have hearts in my eyes“!

Broken Hearts and Zombie Parts is more common and mainstream, but the open heart operation and the personal story of William made this book special in a different way. I thank William Hussey for sharing such a personal story with us all, I truly enjoyed this audiobook! There is some homophobia in the story, but I thought that it was handled well, as well as some hints at internalised homophobia. Es ist mir vollkommen egal, ob manche Situationen / Szenen ein wenig over the top sind, denn alles ist so passend und niedlich.I loved it being framed from the plot device of a scar from life-saving surgery, something I have never really seen as the focus / driving emotional force of a novel. The characters were great and lovely, the start of the book was very good and the writing was alright! I would recommend this for fans of Simon James Green, because it's so funny, and especially the main character is hilarious.

This did fall into the same problem that I've had with other gay romance books, in that Jesse chased a guy who was so obviously unsuitable for him, while the obvious final love interest had to wait for him to notice him until a few chapters off the end. Jesse Spark has a broken heart and in a few short weeks he'll require major surgery to repair it - which means he only has a month to accomplish two almost-impossible tasks. Wer Hörbücher mag, sollte sich dieses auf jeden Fall zu Gemüte ziehen, denn was Chris Nelson hier abgeliefert hat, ist perfekt. It was for me predictable at times and I knew certain things from the get go but I still enjoyed the ride and getting to know the characters on a deeper level.Even the brief mentions of what it felt like in recovery were enough to make me cry with feeling like I had been seen. His latest books include the highly-anticipated KILLING JERICHO (April 2023), the first in a brand new series featuring crime fiction's first Traveller detective, and the acclaimed political thriller for teens, THE OUTRAGE. Although some serious themes were dealt with in this story—such as body image, internalised homophobia, bullying, death of a parent (past tense), to name a few—the overall tone of the story was upbeat and full of heart-warming and humorous moments that both charmed and amused.

The way that this book addresses the fears of both survival and self-esteem afterwards are so amazing that I was left wondering who read my diary. I honestly wish I was more capable to capture with emotions all the feelings I had while reading it. Jesse Spark has a broken heart, and in a few short weeks, he'll require major surgery to repair it - which means he only has a month to accomplish two almost-impossible tasks.

I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers. But I promise you once you start reading and see thru Jesse's eyes, the eyes of a frightened boy not only of what needs to be done to him, but how society will judge him afterwards you will understand. Like his counterparts, Jesse was this lovely blend of wholesome and starry-eyed, also hilariously rambly at times and so relatable in his insecurities, as he navigated his complex friendships and crushes, lifelong and new, all while making his zombie movie passion project and dealing with a scary new health crisis. And while he is scared about the operation, what worries him most is the scar he'll be left with and that no one will ever find him attractive because of it.
