Book Review: Amy and Roger's Epic Detour

Amy & Roger's Epic DetourAmy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For those who care: A few 'F' words (3 or 4 times, maybe), not much other swearing. Some eluding to naughtiness. Other than that I would say it's clean.

As far as story, characters, etc. This book seemed very well researched. Like, she probably took this road trip to write the book. It made me want to hop in the car and drive across country, which is, you know, good that she wrote well enough to do that. The characters are likeable -- flawed just enough to be 'real'. You identify with them, you feel for them... good characterization, I think. The story was nice. Not much actually happening except emotionally and in the relationship department. So if you're expecting a gripping plot, this book probably isn't for you.

Overall, it was an enjoyable read, a good love story, dealt with some deep emotional thingsz (death, drug addiction in the family, and a break up or two).

  1. I will have to check into that one. Cool!

    Speaking of deep, emotional things, I wrote a review of Jay Asher's "Thirteen Reasons Why," here, at my own blog:


    VERY powerful story! :)

    1. That's one I have heard of, but haven't looked into. I'll check out your review. Thanks!
