Jealousy Book Report

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Published in green-font with a green three-eyed monster on the front cover, "Not Like I'm Jealous or Anything" is a humorous novel on real jealous stories of various people and authors. It has been edited by Marissa Walsh and these stories are actual autobiographies of people writing on instances in which they have been jealous. Called the Jealousy Book for short, this novel was written in order to help readers find a way of dealing with their own jealousy (not that it's a problem for me). Everyone's jealous at some point in their lives, right? Well some people in this book are jealous beyond imagination and readers only need to read it to find out! The novel includes stories of about fourteen different people writing their own personal stories on jealousy. ...read more.

Middle

Ben does sports after school and is the only one out of his friends who isn't old enough to drive a car, so Greta meets up with him after school and they walk home together for a couple weeks. But things change when Ben's finally able to get his driver's license and get a nice car. The conflict of jealousy arises in Greta and she stops hanging out with him after school. Soon she ignores him for a couple days and then starts to walk home alone. Their relationship ends due to a car and Greta's jealousy of how much Ben likes his car over her. This story was really weird because what type of girl would be jealous of a car(?), but it was still interesting since the story was told in a two-point perspective, that is, that the story was told by both Greta and Ben and each had contrasting views of the situation. ...read more.

Conclusion

Though the Jealousy Book wasn't very enjoyable for me, it was still humorous at times and I recommend that anyone reading the book should take the survey to find out their rating of jealousy found near the end of the novel. The Jealousy Book, though humorous at times, still I think deserves to have better more plot-twisting stories to shock readers. I think that the editor should continue this novel with even more stories and real-life accounts from people all over the country and even the world to compare and contrast the jealousy of our country to others. I think this would make the novel more interesting and I think the author should only use stories that are super funny and a good read. ...read more.
