Book Review: John Belushi is Dead
Summary from GoodReads: IN THE END WE ALL FADE TO BLACK.
Pink-haired Hilda and oddball loner Benji are not your typical teenagers. Instead of going to parties or hanging out at the mall, they comb the city streets and suburban culs-de-sac of Los Angeles for sites of celebrity murder and suicide. Bound by their interest in the macabre, Hilda and Benji neglect their schoolwork and their social lives in favor of prowling the most notorious crime scenes in Hollywood history and collecting odd mementos of celebrity death.
Hilda and Benji’s morbid pastime takes an unexpected turn when they meet Hank, the elderly, reclusive tenant of a dilapidated Echo Park apartment where a silent movie star once stabbed himself to death with a pair of scissors. Hilda feels a strange connection with Hank and comes to care deeply for her paranoid new friend as they watch old movies together and chat the sweltering afternoons away. But when Hank’s downstairs neighbor Jake, a handsome screenwriter, inserts himself into the equation and begins to hint at Hank’s terrible secrets, Hilda must decide what it is she’s come to Echo Park searching for . . . and whether her fascination with death is worth missing out on life.
My Review: Are the characters too flawed in this book? Perhaps. But they are memorable and that's what makes them great.
Hilda is obsessed with dead celebrities. Her and Benji find an odd relationship in tis similarity. However, as this book progresses, each learns that they have their own battles that may not always be apparent on the surface.
Although geared toward young adult, this book will pull in most any reader. A great escape when you're looking to escape your own real life for a short time and see what another is doing.
