Me Myself Him Ç E things might have gone Is it possible to be jealous of another version of yourself in an alternate reality that doesn't even exist With musings on fate religion parallel universes and the best way to eat a cinnamon roll Me Myself Him examines how what we consider to be true is really just one part of the much much bigger pictureWildly ingeniousaltogether the novel's a winner in this and any other universe Booklist Starred ReviewTebbetts creates entertaining dual narrativesand enjoyable Easter eggs Publishers Weekly. Please tell me I'm not the only one who didn't make the connection that the MC Chris Schweitzer has the same first name as the author Chris Tebbetts PleaseI didn't notice until I was a chapter in Because I'm that smartI kind of which I had noticed the same first names thing before though It probably would have given me a better idea of what I was in for than the cool cover and intriguing blurb did Me Myself Him reaches for some intriguing ideas but is dragged down by flat characters and a fruitlessly unpleasant protagonist A case of autobiographical fiction gone wrongAfter I finished I hunted around until I found an interview that addressed the ChrisChris thing It comes up uickly in this great interview by the Haunted Wordsmith at HW Book Nook and Cranny where the author says“The prologue of this book is autobiographical about a drug fueled accident I had at age nineteen where I broke my nose and got into a lot of trouble with my parents appropriately enough Naming Chris after the author was a deliberate choice of course since this story is in some small part memoir mixed with a much heavier dose of fiction Beyond that the book also draws on a lot of the emotional truths that were part of my experience at that age”Memoir fiction blends can be compelling rawly honest books In this case however I fear the impulse to novelize this episode of his life led Chris Tebbetts astray This origin story explains one of the book’s essential flaws it completely fails to make the case for why this story is interesting Of course you’d be invested in something that happened to you–it’s your life It’s important But that doesn’t mean it’ll be compelling for anyone elseThe book seems to take it for granted that this character and these events make a good story It’s hard to ignore the sense that this has everything to do with its autobiographical nature–not to mention the long tradition of the Western canon’s insistence that anything that happens to a young white everyman is interesting by definition Me Myself Him never stops to show me why I should care about deeply mediocre Chris This is made worse by the fact that Chris’ mind is a deeply unpleasant place to be He’s self absorbed and nasty and most pages are full of his uncharitable knee jerk assumptions about other characters You can’t say that’s not realistic; he’s a teenager Lots of teenagers especially those as privileged as Chris are self absorbed and meanBut realistic doesn’t mean compelling and it doesn’t mean worth reading I finished the book frustrated that I never got any payoff for the hours I spent inside Chris’ small mind It would have been worth it if this character showed me something new but Chris’ growth is minimal and I never get the sense that the book is pushing back against his flaws Slice of life average Joe characters work as a vehicle for captivating prose or deeper themes but Me Myself Him can’t get past how important it finds Chris for his own sake He doesn't need to give me a window into some aspect of humanity he's fascinating just because he's Chris The book’s saving grace might have been a cast of interesting secondary characters that contextualize Chris’ ignorance but unfortunately Chris is the only character that is fully drawn The rest are flat mix and matches of stock characterization that only matter as side characters in Chris’ life not as humans with their own interiority It’s unsurprising that this story with a male dominated cast sidelines the female characters most of allIn the end with little character development and no real story to tell all Me Myself Him is left with is the speculative framework The author seems to be relying on the split timeline structure to make the novel interesting but that only serves to give the reader two poor contemporaries instead of oneI do like the idea–it’s what drew me to the book And there were moments when I could really see what Tebbets was going for This kid had an idea of what the future would look like and in one night poof that goes away He’s having a completely different summer and when you’re that age a summer matters than he thought and he can’t let go of what might have been The novel explores that directly–okay then What if the moment that changed everything went differently It turns out that Chris’ imagined future still wouldn’t have happened; it just would have turned into something different But how could he have knownI can completely identify with that curiosity and longing It’s a feeling that for me sits perfectly in that summer before college setting I had very similar thoughts in my late teens ruminating over the small choices that led me to people and experiences that meant everything people and experiences I otherwise would have missed The book reaches towards some great ideas when it’s a story about what might have been and those moments kept it from being a one star read for meBut I can’t even think about those moments for very long before I start remembering how frustrating they became after a while Tebbets doesn’t seem to trust his reader to understand what he’s going for so he has his characters constantly bring up theories of the multiverse It was clever the first couple times but by halfway through the book I couldn’t imagine what reader wouldn’t have gotten the picture by nowIt being June when I write this I can’t close this review without bringing up the LGBT rep Chris the character though I believe the author as well is out as gay and an mm relationship plays a central role in the second half of the book I don’t have many thoughts on the rep in this book–it didn’t strike me as particularly good or bad–but I’ll link some OwnVoices reviews if I find any that address it directly I received a digital review copy from the publisher via NetGalley in expectation of an honest review No money changed hands for this review and all opinions are my own Download à eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ä Chris Tebbetts
