Zamora Linmark ☆ 4 Free download Ys been than enough for Ken Z but when he meets Ran at the mall food court everything changes Beautiful mysterious Ran opens the door to a number of firsts for Ken first kiss first love But as uickly as he enters Ken's life Ran disappears and Ken Z is left wondering Why. 355For the bio that compare this to Elizabeth Acevedo s The Poet X How could one write such a lieThis book definitely had me changing my opinion every couple of pages One minute I was so excited at the prospect of LGBT Filipino stories spoiler as a non binary Filipino American I was very let down the next I thought the Wilde concept was being pushed too hard after I wondered if I had misunderstood the entirety of the plot then got suckered as a hopeless romantic but annoyed at the entire dialogue and myself and finally ending with general content but still feeling eh I wasn t looking for some life changing analysis of what it s like to be LGBT and Filipino but if that is advertised as the crux of the plot of course I am going to have some expectations going in Sad to say most expectations were not met Things that were not bad I felt exposed lol I was absolutely OVER Ken Z s character and found him whiny impractical asking too many uestions drawing too many hypotheticals too many abstract thoughts with overthinking prioritizing someone he just met over people he d known for years not valuing his single mother then I realized this was definitely a previous version of myself especially around the time when I was in my first long term relationship I hated his character because it held some of the ugliest parts of my past that I had to learn to grow out of it I can t help but wonder if others had this same type of self reflection although I feel like humans seldom like to admit when they were toxic andor bad people Things That We re BIG NOPES There were so many moments where it felt like the author was trying too hard to craft Ken Z into this uirky bookworm nerd the amount of similes and metaphors woven into his internal thoughts was far too much for my liking After I looked into the author s background and saw his focus is primarily poetry this made sense to me but in the moment I was very thrown off by the FORCED intellectual monologues that occurred The author literally spells everything out By throwing in so much social justice language it inevitably becomes jargon y and in reality no one talks like this Yes my close circle and I believe in the liberation of all peoples and have very social justice minded values but do we address discuss issues as depicted in this text NO Everything is spelled out as if it is an ethnic studies reading or essay The usage of the r slur out of NO WHERE as an insult This was LITERALLY published in 2019 in the United States there is ZERO excuse for this CaZZ being trans was a diversity token That s it There was 0 development of her character nor did she receive any role other than being the trans person who faced extreme trauma but is still surviving and now chooses to be outspoken I also think it s ridiculous that the author is setting this in the Philippines and alludes to colonization but still abides by Westernized standards of genders and said CaZZ should have been born with two XXs gender is far than sex Reading CaZZ s character PLUS with the incorporation of astrology and millenial humor just screams that the author is a privileged cis gay man trying to be relevant to younger LGBT audiences but fails terribly The fact that Ken s friends forced him to come out not with his sexuality but with his mental health and processing is so toxic It was wrong for Ken to not give any notice but it was also just as wrong for the friends to literally CORNER him into sharing about his depressive episode No one is owned an explanation He should not have to explain his mental health if he does not want to disclose it uotes that got me through this book Me Actually it feels good to have another person in my small universeOscar Your world Ken Z is larger than you thought It has always been And now with Ran it s become even largerMe Because of himOscar Because of love dear heart Because of love I remember I wrote it down I don t let words like that get away from me They mean too much Like that lingering hug he gave me before walking away What s happening to me One minute I m writing a list to stretch happiness a little longer The next I m writing a list to keep myself from drowning like ghosts that we thought we had forgotten or already made peace with memories that we never wanted and that continue to punish us by making us crave and wish we were doing than just remembering

review These Books Belong to Ken Z These Books Belong to Ken Z Read & Download ✓ 4 R. Zamora Linmark ☆ 4 Free download Love at all if this is where it leadsLetting it end there would be tragic So with the help of his best friends the comfort of his haikus and lists and even strange surreal appearances by his hero Oscar Wilde Ken will find that love is worth than the price of heartbreak. i genuinely love linmark s writing i was deeply impressed by his incredible use of language as well as attack on language in rolling the r s and went into this book eager to see how linmark would continue to play with language especially when the title is a clear wordplay on oscar wilde like woo i was anticipating wit and sarcasm and just a whole lot of social commentary on language that would hit me right in the gut well it didn t really live up to my expectations the social commentary is there and i appreciate that the book tries to bring in issues of gender sexuality education politics of language and geopolitics however the execution is a bit clumsy in my opinion i prefer how rolling the r s does this through the subtlety in the characters very overt emotions here the characters are young emotionally intense super socially aware and just in general very precocious while i m not saying the portrayal of complex teenagers who are both na ve and sharp in the book is unrealistic it makes the book s overall vibe a bit too juvenile for my personal liking i think my main issue is that ken z s extremely melodramatic personality undermines whatever discourse that the book is trying to provoke perhaps some will say that despite their heightened social awareness teenagers are at the end of the day emotional messes and i agree however the characters also deliver astonishingly keen and sober social observations at the same time they re experiencing emotional distress the dissonance is a bit too much for me and makes the book seem a bit wishy washy like linmark wants to go all out on the YA genre but also wants to incorporate discourse into the book and i think the product is a bit clumsythat being said i love the characters the play with language the melodramatic angst and of course how beautifully it s written if this is a purely YA piece without such overt political commentary i think i would ve enjoyed it infinitely like this writing reminds me of fanfiction the Great type the could be published type and i d read the heck out of that the poems are also stunning and perhaps the highlights for me in this book i d definitely check out some of his poetry after this
