The Rest of Us Just Live Here

A new YA novel from novelist Patrick Ness, author of the Carnegie Medal- and Kate Greenaway Medal-winning A Monster Calls and the critically acclaimed Chaos Walking trilogy, The Rest of Us Just Live Here is a bold and irreverent novel that powerfully reminds us that there are many different types of remarkable.

What if you aren´t the Chosen One? The one who´s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?

What if you´re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.

Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week´s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.

Even if your best friend is worshipped by mountain lions.

„It's okay to not be okay“

Lena Lang, Thalia-Buchhandlung Ludwigshafen

Patrick Ness is an incredible writer, full stop. The way he brings characters to life never cease to amaze me.

This particular book focuses on ordinary people, living in an extraordinary world. (Just imagine Harry Potter was real but you're just a side character, that's this book)

Mikey has not only to deal with graduation but also
Patrick Ness is an incredible writer, full stop. The way he brings characters to life never cease to amaze me.

Mikey has not only to deal with graduation but also with his anxiety and OCD which seems to get worse by the day. While his friends seem to get on with their lifes and are up to greater things, Mikey feels left behind.

I found Mikey a very relateable character, his story hit very close home, but it shows us that it is okay to not feel okay all the time, the importance of friendship and talking and opening up to the people you love.
Great book.

ein kleines Meisterwerk

In dieser Welt ist schon einiges passiert: Götter, Untote, seelenfressende Geister und Vampire haben die Erde schon heimgesucht. Zum Glück gibt es die Indie Kids: die mit den coolen Nerd-Haaren, den Namen aus den Fünfzigern, zu cool um jemals zu einem Schulball zu gehen, die nur Jazz hören und dabei Poesie lesen. Ganz nett alle, doch nur sie sind immer die Auserwählten, die alle Gefahren besiegen. Diesmal erscheinen die Immortals auf der Erde und das Buch könnte nun von Indie Kid Finn handeln, aber seine Geschichte und die der anderen Indie Kids wird nur am Rande erwähnt. Denn das hier ist die Geschichte von den Freunden Mickey, Mel, Henna und Jared. Jeder mit seiner eigenen Palette an Problemen, die eigentlich nur eines wollen: ihren Abschluss. Doch so ganz können sie nicht ausblenden, was mit den Indie Kids passiert.. Ein phänomenales Buch! Die Hauptcharaktere sind wunderbar beschrieben mit ihren Schwächen und Fehlern, ihren Träumen und Wünschen, ich habe jeden von ihnen auf einzigartige Weise kennen und lieben gelernt. Hier geht es nur am Rande um die coolen Jugendlichen, die die Welt retten und dabei ihre große Liebe finden. Das Buch erzählt still und mit Wucht über das Leben und die Liebe, darüber sich selbst zu akzeptieren, seine eigene Stimme zu finden und mutig zu sein. Vor der Kulisse des nahenden Weltuntergangs greift es auf seine leise Art Themen wie Magersucht, Coming Out und Zwangsstörungen auf ohne sie dabei zum Hauptthema zu machen. Ich liebe das Buch! Es hat mich zum Lachen und mein Herz zum Bluten gebracht, zum Nachdenken angeregt und wird wohl noch lange in meinen Gedanken sein! Dabei war es so spannend, dass ich es nicht mehr aus der Hand legen konnte und jeder freien Pause entgegen gefiebert habe um weiterzulesen. Ich freue mich jetzt schon, es noch einmal zu lesen und kann es wirklich jedem aufs herzlichste empfehlen! Genial!

Refreshingly Different
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 15.06.2017

"The Rest of Us Just Live Here" is a fun and quick read that for once focuses on the non-special teenagers rather than the chosen ones who go around saving the world. Mikey and his friends have four weeks left before graduation. Just four weeks before the wind will scatter... "The Rest of Us Just Live Here" is a fun and quick read that for once focuses on the non-special teenagers rather than the chosen ones who go around saving the world. Mikey and his friends have four weeks left before graduation. Just four weeks before the wind will scatter them in different directions and everything will begin to change. While the indie kids use this time to fight some evil supernatural enemy, Mikey and his friends have to deal with more personal issues. Teen angst, psychological issues, love and above all friendship are the most prominent topics featured in this refreshing YA novel. I like how the author focuses on the underdogs rather than the heroes and shows that everyone has their load to bear. Mikey, Henna, Mel and Jared are very likeable and relatable characters and make up a tight-knit group of friends some might envy for their group dynamic. Alongside the issues addressed in this book - which, to me, is done very authentically, considering its length - I also appreciate the little summaries of the supernatural goings-on at the beginning of each chapter. They are just hilarious - even though they kind of make fantasy novels look ridiculous. Patrick Ness hasn't written a story that has never been there before, but his writing style and structure offer a different kind of reading experience than most of us are used to. Recommended!

I'm sorry to say this, since so many people seem to love Patrick Ness, but I don't like his writing and this book was kind of pointless. Nothing really happened aside from the fact that some people (not the main character) saved the world, that grown-ups don't listen to their kids (already knew that) and that a bunch of kids graduated from Highschool (which happens all the time). It was nice reading about a character with OCD and how he and the people around him dealt with that. The parts with the psychologist were also pretty nice because it's important to tell people that there is no shame in needing help and being sick and that psychological issues are not less important or shameful in any way. I don't care much for romance and while I think this book isn't supposed to be one, it focuses so much on the main characters woes of trying to get the girl. It was exhausting and boring and he was so whiny and jealous and petty that I really couldn't bring myself to care much about him. There's also that whole bisexuality (or maybe pansexuality) thing that is heavily implied but never actually voiced. I don't understand why authors won't simply make their characters notice that they are bisexual and accept that label. It is obviously absolutely okay to not know your label and not wanting to label yourself, but considering how often the main character mentioned that he had sex with his male best friend and enjoyed it and also encouraged it, it wouldn't have been such a big step to make him label himself. I couldn't connect to the characters in the way I need to to enjoy a book and like I said, there also wasn't really a plot and the writing wasn't great either, so this book simply didn't work for me.
