Bestseller Kindle Thou Shalt Not Road Trip I'm surprised that I ended up giving this book 2 stars. This is the author that wrote Five Flavors of Dumb which I absolutely loved. So what went wrong you say? *sigh* Too much unfortunately for this reader. Luke has written a little book. A little book that suddenly becomes a nationwide sensation. So what do you do? Go on a book tour of course! Luke is going to do the book tour along with his older brother Matt. Some unexpected traveling buddies come up as well. Matt's long distance girlfriend Alex and her sister Fran are hitching a ride on this road trip too. Fran use to be Luke's best friend but something happened during the summer that created a drift between them. Fran’s not her old self and has run into trouble. At the moment Luke and Fran basically hate each other, but maybe the road trip will help them? If only Luke could get this book touring thing right. I do want to say a few good things about the book. I think it was brave of John to write something like this. It's not really typical young adult fare and I do applaud him for that. I don't see many books where Christian teens are the main characters and the book is not labeled Christian lit. I also think he made the right choice for the ending. I think if it went another way it would have been grossly unfair to one of the characters. What else he did right I think was the book tour itself. It must be incredibly hard to do them. Especially if you're sixteen and with no professional at your side, so that was a realistic aspect of the book. (Not having a publishing person with you doesn’t seem like something that would happen though, especially if the book is doing real well anyways…) That being said there was a lot I didn't love about the book.Firstly all the characters are flawed. Good right? Well yeah that makes it believable but you have to find redeemable qualities so you can root for them. And though of course they weren't all bad it just didn't make up for their behavior. Luke, who has written this inspirational book, is a hypocrite and unbelievably naive. Fran seems to over dramatize everything, and that’s too bad because I think her character could have been the most interesting. I get that she comes from a vulnerable place when she does things, but I still couldn’t connect with her. Matt is selfish even if he acts as though that is not the case at all. At least Luke can see through his crap eventually. Alex was basically annoying. I'm not sure why the author thought it was important to even include Matt and Alex because they took away too much story time from Luke and Fran. I want it to be noted that at one point I was pulling for all of them. I thought maybe I was going to see something towards the end that would wrap this up and be happy for them. There is this somewhat riveting speech but that’s about it. I didn’t buy that the characters made huge changes in their lives. What makes this so frustrating for me was that none of the characters are overtly horrible, so I didn’t hate them but I just couldn’t find it in myself to even like them. Then there is the disappointment of the road trip. It's not really a road trip book. There is one part where they do something road trip worthy but it's mostly filled with death glares and bickering, and the once in a while good thing that would emerge. So if you are reading it for the road trip fun I would skip this one. But if you are willing to read about some different kind of characters I would give it a go. I won't discourage others from reading it because other readers may have more compassion and be able to understand these characters better than I do. I hope there are readers like that. So will I read something by Antony John again? Absolutely. Even though I didn't enjoy this one I'm glad he has the guts to write something different and can't wait to see what else is under his top hat.
