    Refuse author Elliott DeLine review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Refuse author Elliott DeLiThis was generally an enjoyable read but suffered from a lot of structural and grammatical problems which could have been easily prevented if DeLine had bothered to hire a copy editor The cover photo was low uality and pixellated which gives the whole thing an unprofessional juvenile appearance DeLine didn't seem to have a whole lot of respect for the book itself while also seeming to think of himself as the writer of a contemporary ueer classic That's actually the problem I had with the writing too; it's simultaneously pretentious and self deprecating just like the main character himself Ov

    Refuse author Elliott DeLine review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Refuse author Elliott DeLiDean's Holden Caulfield attitude got on my nerves a whole awful lot but the further I got into the book I started to disregard it and it began to bother me less because I was getting wrapped up in the story Based the first person pieces throughout the book I could tell that none of this

    Refuse author Elliott DeLine review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Refuse author Elliott DeLiLet me begin by saying that Refuse had a lot of potential DeLine is clearly skilled in prose but the overall impression I received in reading this was that it could have benefited from substantial editing Yeah I get that it's edgy and radical or whatever to self publish but DeLine just doesn't get there with this novel One can maintain the indie image just as effectively through radicalueer publishers of which there is a plethoraOne of my chief criticisms of Refuse is the diatribe sandwich of which the introduction and conclusion are comprised which truly contributes little in stylistic or narrative value They are sophomoric grating narcissistic and most of all pretentious This may have been a stylistic choi

    Refuse author Elliott DeLine review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Refuse author Elliott DeLiI really fucking appreciate Dean's cynical pessimistic dysphoric mythology soaked feelings on being trans even though miserable people making other people miserable isn't my favorite genre Everyone's been there and the people who haven't are even insufferable but no one skewers it as well as Dean does

    Refuse author Elliott DeLine review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Refuse author Elliott DeLiSummary Dean is not your average run of the mill happy go lucky young adult Not only is he a transsexual male who uestions his sexual preferences but he seemingly hates everything around him including himself Then again having rage against the world and not knowing who he really is could be considered a common trait amongst many of today’s youth What teenager or young adult doesn’t feel awkward and out of place Sadly it is Dean’s discomfort and self hatred of himself that has him feeling his plight is worse than others around him including those in his transgender communityReview Edgy may be an understatement for the tone of this book From the first pages of the book the reader undertakes the rants of the main character Co

    Refuse author Elliott DeLine review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Refuse author Elliott DeLiI'm sorry but this writing was bad so I only pushed myself through the first half I've read many pieces of fanfiction for free that were better than this The main character is insufferably annoying There were like 10 spelling mistakes and the cover image was blurry cause it was too stretched out which I feel is a result of lack of effort because honestly I'm sure it's not that hard to fix As others have said this is in desperate need of an editor but also a serious rethinking of why Dean is so annoyingThe author is constantly referencing the fact that Dean likes The Smiths and has a cool hairstyle and Dean writing about himself is constantly acknowledging how he's arrogant and then continues talking about himself There's little reason why anyone would want
