your opinion of Jen?
« on: February 03, 2010, 01:26:45 PM »

So this is something that has been on my mind for awhile...what you thought of Jen in So yesterday.

did you think she was crazy
did you think she was fake
did you think she was just like you
did you hate her
did you like her
??????????

the first time I read the book:I loved the unique way that Jen saw the world, I wanted to be like her for the longest time.

Then when I re-read it I saw that underneath her awesome front, she wasnt' perfect and that trying to act like a book character wasn't the best.

Then fourth time: I started to get annoyed with Jen, i found her imature and a pain

now when I read the books I see her as a person with really cool ideas, slightly overbaring but would be an awesome person to meet and a hard person to stay friends with.

But the fact remains the same that she is a character that has a large personal impact on me, weather it be possitive or negative. And she overall is about 50% of the reason So Yesterday is my favourite book by Scott Westerfeld.

I thought she was pretty interesting. I wasn't too attached to her but I loved her buzz cut.

Loves Jen! So unique, so crazy! Ahaha, I could totally understand someone like Hunter falling in love with her.

I liked Jen, but she wasn't like, my favorite person in the world. I liked that she wasn't afraid to do things her own way.

Jen was possibly the coolest, most unique, hilarious, and likeable character i've ever read in a book... and then she went cuckoo over a few pairs of burn shoes :-\ if I was Hunter at that point, I would've slowly backed away without making a sound and would NEVER have taken my eyes of that crazy lady :P

I couldn't get into all of Scott's books but this one grabbed me by my big toe, span me round and round and let go shouting YIPPEE KI YAY!!! :)

I really loved that book. I've got a few of my friends to read it! Always quoting the cool pyramid.
