    1. Namedropper follows Viva as she falls in love for the first two times, realizes the cracks in her friendships that will seemingly last forever, and hurdles towards the end of days in school The most enjoyable part of this novel is the narration Forrest s Viva is fully realized Her conversational tone and unselfconscious, confessional style is believable in the way only a teenage girl writing in the voice of another teenage girl can be She is dizzying, without the hint of self deprecation that sh [...]


    2. Viva hangs around London, Viva goes to Edinburgh, Viva goes to Brighton, Viva goes to LA and Vegas She hangs out with a holy trinity of rock stars Yet it s almost like nothing happens in this book The characters and the mood are important, and that s what I like about it There were some sentences that I wanted to jot down and other parts that I thought were trying way too hard to be witty Very real for a book that was written by a young 20 something from the POV of a 17 year old.


    3. I swooned over her memoir, Your Voice in My Head This was a woman, I thought, that I could be good friends with smart, incisive, sensitive, pragmatic.So i figured I d love her novel too But it sucked Sucked hard like a Dyson It was a lightweight bit of tragically unsophisticated fluff that read like it was written by a 17 yr old trying to sound cool Which, given that her writing career started in high school, it probably was Blech.


    4. Hmm this one wasn t quite as wonderful as bits of it made it seem That doesn t make sense, really But the main character, the sub characters, the general feel and some of it was genius but all together, it just didn t work for me.



    5. This story of Viva and her misadventures reminds me a lot of Nick and Norah s Infinite Playlist While there are a few parts in the book where Viva s character starts to annoy me, I still felt like I could relate to her She s a young adult trying to find her identity and place in the world which never goes as smoothly as one would hope.


    6. I think it s best to start this review with what came to mind the most while reading it Those words at bestWere worse than teenage poetryFragment ideasAnd too many pronounsStop it, come onYou re not making sense nowYou can t make them want youThey re all just laughing Taking Back Sunday Timberwolves at New Jersey.That being said I really wanted to like this book I had such a crush on the idea of this book, and as I wrote in another blog, because I had such a crush on it I was harder on it when i [...]


    7. I read this book in college shortly after having a fling with a touring musician Namedropper is admittedly a girly and fluffy book, but for its great timing in my life, it remains one of my favorites This quote really summed up how I felt that summer I perused the magazines at the news stall as I waited for my train Skyline were on three covers All of them showed a close up of Dillon s face, with the rest of the band in soft focus Part of me wanted to see him But the other part knows that if you [...]


    8. I enjoyed this book alrightI judged the book by the cover for sure, it just really caught my eye in the store It was a very quick read, only took me a few days There were a few British references that I didn t quite get but it wasn t too hard to understand the context It would be better to read the book now when the pop cultural references aren t too dated and irrelevent Readers of a different generation in the future may not get a lot of the references or understand why they are funny I think I [...]


    9. This book was SO hard to finish, I didn t like Emma s writing style at all with this book The story was dry and didn t have a nice flow I honestly had to push myself to finish it I wanted to have something good to say about Namedropper, and at first I thought Viva was funny and witty but towards the end of the book she annoyed me I honestly couldn t recommend this book to anyone, it defiantly fell flat.


    10. I read this when it was first published, I would say around 00 01, I had given it to a ex who loved it I gave it to her thinking I could get another copy easy, but found that it was hard to come by, soon after I forgot about it Emma Forrest is great, born and raised in London, published by 18 I believe, and was at the time living in NYC, and apparently now lives in L.A.


    11. picked this up and put it down like 8 times because of the cover, just didn t grab me BUT cute characters weren t really developed at all but that was ok there was tons of unbelievable stuff too, also ok writing reminded me of pamela s so that was pleasant lighthearted in an I Capture the Castle kind of way.


    12. This was one of my favourite books by far It isn t for everyone, as it is hard to get along with Viva, the main character She reminds me of myself in the ways that her imagination is and the way she talks about her depression at the end I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would love to read the others by emma forrest.


    13. Hat leider nicht gehalten, was der Klappentext versprachDie 16j hrige Viva ist die Hauptperson dieses Buches, mit wenig Bock auf die Schule und daf r gro er Leidenschaft f r Popculture im allgemeinen und Musiker im spezielln.


    14. So I finished this yesterday in my bed, and I must say, it was a bit weird Especially in the start and the last page A bit confusing with all the napedropping, but yeah, it was allright, and I m happy I read it.


    15. I did not like this book Not much of a plot or action Mostly focused on the thoughts of a young disfunctional girl I did not like her character Only finished the book to say it was finished for library ocntest.








    16. I was utterly obsessed with this book when I was 16 I don t dare re read it now in case it makes me cringe But still, there was a time when this book was everything.



    17. I love the writing, the way the narrator thinks is wonderful It s one of those books that I read and wished I had written.




    18. I remember nothing but devouring this book for the voice alone I wonder what E Forrest thinks of it these days.



    19. very sad i borrowed this book from my friend jessica while i about to go to the hospital im afaid it was the worst possible time to read a book about depression but i sure felt like i could relate.
