      What the fuck is this supposed to be I know I usually lightly censor myself, but if you can t handle the word fuck without the asterisk instead of the u then you definitely can t handle this book The main character of this book manipulates girls into having sex with him When discussing the fact that women have varied sexual preferences, he dismisses the concept of an entire gender not being identical sexually L adies, have a conference and decide He fantasizes about coercing women into nudity wi [...]

      Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum 2.5 Stars I appreciate the effort, but really if you are looking for a book about youngsters dysfunctional relationships, it pales in comparison to The Master Bonus half star for Lemony Snicket being ever so edgy at times.

      ARC REVIEW Spanish review at the bottom I don t even know how to review this book because it s weird Good weird, but weird nonetheless Have you ever wondered how a horny teenage boy thinks all the time Read All The Dirty Parts Now, have you ever been curious about how confused can a horny teenage boy get when it comes to discovering what he likes, who he likes and why he likes either a girl or a boy Then again, All The Dirty Parts is the book for you There s nothing in this book that isn t drive [...]

    4. Bianca on said:

      This one is hard difficult to rate and review.The writing was competent and it had a good flow with its teenagerish, choppy, first person narration I read it in one sitting.but EEWWWW It s all sex thinking about it, watching porn, doing it, masturbating ad nauseam The plot is somewhere in there but you miss it, drowning in the bodily fluids.Yes, we know, teenagers are obsessed with sex But do I need to read an entire book about the mechanics of it Do I need to read about it in so much detail Not [...]

    5. Ron Charles on said:

      Last month, Handler ran an ad I mean, an essay in the New York Times claiming that the way to encourage teenage boys to read is to give them books with lots of sex Among the titles he devoured as a teen was Milan Kundera s The Unbearable Lightness of Being, which may tell us all we need to know about the usefulness of Handler s advice for teachers and parents of reluctant readers.But, as promised, he has now supplied us with All the Dirty Parts, a novel engineered to send young men into orgiasti [...]

      HOLY CRAP WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ I read this in an hour, half of which was in the salon chair getting my hair cut My stylist kept leaning over my shoulder, My God, what are you reading And I was like, I DON T KNOW Holy crap, I don t think I know a aptly titled book This is a book about sex No ifs ands or buts This is a horny young man in all his young horny glory and yes, it s all the dirty parts Literally parts it moves along in these bite sized chunks Butwow I don t know if I can descr [...]

    7. Liz Overberg on said:

      This is a brief snapshot of a school year, told in snippets, dialogue, and vignettes, about a teenage boy named Cole who really, really likes sex.I knew going into this to expect all the dirty parts, and don t take issue with the very, very abundant explicit content To me, the book just seems pointless There is a vague sense of some lesson to be learned for Cole, but the idea could have been much better executed The largest issue I have is with the publisher description of a novel that looks hon [...]

    8. Robin on said:

      Still thinkingUpdate Lemony Snicket author, eh This could be interesting since it s billed as an adult book This is an intriguing book in that there are many questions in my mind Because I m old and don t really know, are today s teens that much aware of their own sexuality and experiences Is this a book a librarian could recommend to a mature teen And what will younger teens think if they read it because they are Lemony Snicket fans Since is billed as a book for adults, will it appeal to them [...]

    9. Morris on said:

      All the Dirty Parts is one of those books that you will either love or hate I m in the LOVE camp Warning Don t buy this for a kid thinking Lemony Snicket This is not a good present from Grandma, though I can promise you it would get read.Most of us know what it s like to wait for the dirty part in a movie, book, story your friend is telling, or even our own lives if we re honest about it It seems like that s the good part The genius of All the Dirty Parts is that is exactly what the name implies [...]

      This is a book about learning Learning about yourself, learning about people, and learning about the difference between want need and have.Our protagonist is a high school student named Cole, and Cole is consumed with sex Talking about it, watching it, experiencing it He s accumulated a whopping 11 partners in his youth, and quite the reputation around school for sleeping around But then he meets a girl the 12th girl The girl who will show him how those other 12 may have felt, and open his eyes [...]

    11. Sarah on said:

      2.5 3 STARSI received an ARC of this novel from Bloomsbury Publishing in exchange for an honest review All thoughts are my own.This book was very strange, from the format it was written in to me it was paragraphs of Cole s thoughts , to the way the words flowed across the page While I knew the novel would be quite sexual in detail, I was not prepared for the level of explicitness it had I think going into it knowing Daniel Handler is Lemony Snicket set me up a bit to be quite taken aback by the [...]

    12. Greg on said:

      Update of review Okay, no true dirty parts circa 2017 But the thing that bothers me most about this book is that the book jacket tells us this is not a love story But that s exactly what this book is In fact, Handler tells us two love stories Cole Grisaille and Cole Alex from meeting, to dating, to the ending of both relationships with a number of sexless scenes And it seems that Cole is most crushed when he loses touch with Alex then Alex tells him he Alex is now seeing another guy Thus Cole lo [...]

    13. J.P. on said:

      You d think a book dedicated to Prince wouldn t be so eager to punish its protagonist for the sex he had Some of the vaguest writing I ve read in a while Has Handler ever actually had sex And, really The exotic, oversexed Latina trope Really The only interesting thing was Cole s relationship with Alec and that s mostly because I m a romantic Give me Beautiful Thing, and I eat that shit up At least it reads quickly.

    14. Anita on said:

      I want to make my bias really clear here I love Daniel Handler I ve read everything he s ever written, and I feel like I just get what he s going for when he approaches a subject, whether it s love, golems, pirates, or sexuality So, like everything else of his, I enjoyed this, too However, I feel like Handler s works fall into a sort of complicated Venn diagram or flow chart which I won t draw literally, but will sort of outline below.If you loved A Series of Unfortunate Events, you ll probably [...]

    15. hayden on said:

      i picked this up as one of the books i was considering buying at the bookstore today and accidentally read the whole thing whoops i didn t realize just how short it was not even 140 pages of large font and lots of scene breaks the title is no lie this novel really is, entirely, all dirty stuff, with nothing else in between also makes for quite uncomfortable public reading, like reading a harlequin romance on a bus the writing is dazzling handler has than well proven that he s got a stunning abi [...]

    16. Betsy on said:

      I don t review adult books generally and that s not really going to change right now, but I would just like to point out that the publisher is marketing this as Adult fare That said, there are going to be a lot of teen readers reading this A Lot Highly recommend you read it too before your opinions coalesce.

    17. love, ellie on said:

      Yikes Could not even finish it It normalizes sex and everything but likeevery single page And he s cheating on girls sleeping with one like every single page and of course he doesn t get called out for it, just told in a side conversation that people think he s being sleazy If a girl did this, she d be slutshamed to hell and back And that s why this book isn t important It s not necessary Sex is already seen as natural and a thing guys seek and that s considered normal but never for girls If thi [...]

    18. Jaclyn Crupi on said:

      I m not sure I needed to spend 135 pages inside the mind of a sex crazed teenage boy Handler does it well but it will take a while for my blush to fade There is the most beautiful and unexpected tenderness in this book towards the end so if you re uncertain early on, keep going

      3.5 moody broody confusing coming of age.New adult Hmm I guess I could see that Maybe MATURE new adult with an artsy style.I think I have a love hate relationship with All The Dirty Parts by Daniel Handler How to explain that Well, the moral of this story wasn t awful It s actually what redeemed it for me I m giving this book a 3 SOLELY because I liked how it ended.Prepare to dislike the main character You just will If you don t I m not judging you He just isn t very likable in my honest opinion [...]

    20. Bert Zee on said:

      And just like that, a new queer classic is born.Daniel Handler is such a unique writer, as Lemony Snicket he created such a gloomy and wonderful world with A Series of Unfortunate Events, in The Basic Eight he created a story that could rival Heathers, and now with this he s created something resembling a Dennis Cooper novel by way of Roald Dahl, very strange indeed but so good.Cole is 17, he s obsessed with online porn, he masturbates furiously every day, he gets blowjobs from his best friend, [...]

    21. Rynn Yumako on said:

      How can writing so vulgar and crass be so eloquent at the same time How can I hate a character as much as Cole and feel sorry for him at the same time A very powerful story, with memorable, beautiful writing and complex characters Definitely not for everybody, and while I don t agree with most of the stuff that happened or was said in this book, it s still going to be one of the surprise hits for me this year, mostly due to its sheer weirdness 4.5 stars.

    22. Andrea: BookStoreFinds on said:

      I have no idea how to rate this book On one hand, I m shocked that it was written by Lemony Snicket but only because those are the only DH books I ve read On the other, I really enjoyed it so

    23. Sophie Elaina on said:

      As a whole this really fell short for me, I feel like I just didn t click with the style of writing If you enjoy short books with quirky writing I think you might enjoy this book, but I just really didn t like it The characters were not well developed at all in my opinion, I realise that was the idea and that the book is literally all the dirty parts but you still need to be able to connect with the characters or at least have a plot that you are enjoying But I found it boring and not much actua [...]

    24. Alena on said:

      Yikes What made me choose this book I can t explain it, but it s not anywhere near my typical reading taste and it is exactly as its title implies, very, VERY dirty It made me uncomfortable and a little worried my teenage sons would ask me what it s about.It s about a teenager obsessed with sex every kind in every way with everyone Yes, it s also about than that It s about the line that connects sex, obsession and love And there s enough of that for me to go up to 2 Stars, but really it felt li [...]

    25. Bridget on said:

      Well, this is going to be controversial Public libraries rush out and get this as soon as it is available, school libraries, I bet this one gets you some interesting comments I can see the lights flashing and the censors racing to ban this from every library in the land.Someone here on has placed a comment that it should be reviewed by males, and I can see that, after all, we are firmly placed inside the head of a teenage boy who is thinking about sex, having sex, exploring all manner of sex and [...]

      Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC of this work The voice in this was unique and consistent the author sets out to portray a gritty main character.

      Cole is a teenager who s hooked up with a lot of girls Then a foreign exchange student named Grisaille comes to town and really rocks his world They have sex constantly But Grisaille eventually gets bored and hooks up with another guy Having gotten a taste of his own medicine, Cole ends the novel alone, staring at his blank computer screenIf this doesn t sound like a book I or anybody would read, don t worry There s clearly something else going on here.After each hook up, Cole shares the details [...]

    28. Laura on said:

      Big thank you to Daniel Handler and Bloomsbury for sending me this book through a Goodread s giveaway The hardback copy is beautiful and a lot smaller than I expected As for the content, is this how teenagers think Did I think like this Man that s scary This is a novel with only the sex bits, the experimentation, the self love, the complications and nothing else I feel there was an understory that I just didn t get It was weird and I m not sure if it was just wasted on me

    29. Audrey Laurey on said:

      Handler is such a master of prose His ability to relate little slices of life and apply meaning without saying anything directly leaves me in awe I d probably enjoy anything he writes Not my favorite, and hard to place an audience, but still great All the Dirty Parts is an adult book that would be enjoyed by mature teen audiences, yet too mature for me to recommend to teens IDK, a fabulous weirdo piece of work that stands on it s own.
