    One Reply to “Jack Tumor”

    1. Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone Here is a book that will make you laugh and cry Sometimes on the same page For those that do snore, don t worry, it s a page turner, so you can stay up all night reading There s a special place in my heart for Henry Tumour I first read it back when I was almost the same age as Hector, the narrator of the story I felt an immediate affinity with him, as we were both having far success in mathematics than with those myserious creatures [...]

    2. One of the coolest ideas a talking brain tumor and definitely one of the coolest opening words for any book Arsecheese The tone is set we get deliciously vulgar thought often decidedly man humour as well as unpredictable scenes featuring Hector Brundy your typical nerdgeek who s into comic books, Star Trek as well as Buffy the Vampire Slayer That last part definitely won over the cat.Henry Tumour is a sensitive tale about growing up, and making the best of things, despite your shortcomings , eve [...]

    3. This looks an awful lot like David Henrie on the cover Aww, how I miss Wizards of Waverly Place I picked this book up at the library book sale a while back because the synopsis sounded hilarious a talking brain tumor How could I pass that up What really surprised me was how touching this book actually was Now, don t get me wrong, it definitely had it s hilarious moments, but I found it to be moving as well.I really loved Hector Brunty as a character Not only was he nerdy but he was so humanized [...]

    4. Difficult to think of a book about a boy and his brain tumor as funny, but this one really is Hector, who s been having rather severe headaches, starts hearing a voice Not just any voice, it s the voice of Jack Jack Tumor who TALKS LIKE DEATH if you know what I mean.Jack s funny at times, cranky at others It s sort of like Heck s subconscious but better at one point and I m paraphrasing here Jack admits that he has access to everything in Hector s brain, including stuff he doesn t know is there [...]

    5. In an overflowing, smelly, terribly lit save a lot I came across Jack Tumor Whilst looking at another book that didn t really interest me, I knocked over Anthony McGowan s masterpiece One look at the first word, Arsecheese, I was sold I took it home, not thinking much of it Little did I know that this crude, hilarious, and beautifully insightful novel would change my life forever Pretty amazing for an accident, right Perhaps it was Hector Brunty, the humorous and very humanized character, or may [...]

    6. I really will never learn How many times have I picked up a book I knew was going to be funny beyond belief, and read it on the train After snorting with laughter very loudly on a train jam packed with people, this strictly became a read at home only book And this is one seriously funny book The premise is simple Hector discovers he has a brain tumour Its name is Henry And it talks to him, gives him advice and generally keeps him company Whether Hector likes it are not.The story is super clever [...]

    7. I d really give this a four and a half stars It s not often you read a book that makes you feel bad for the tumor that s killing the protagonist but Mr McGowan has done just that The symbiotic relationship between the boy and his tumor works because McGowan gives Jack a real personality smart, supportive, vulnerable and yes reasonable He the tumor knows what he is He also knows the effect he has on the boy He also knows he wants to live It s a great idea and it plays out in a wonderful and satis [...]

    8. I have to admit this book read kind of like a NaNoWriMo novel I m not saying that in a bad way Just that the voice of the protagonist lends it to the type of writer who has a word count to fulfill or who gets paid by the sentence There is a lot of extra stuff here Do I really care about the Battle of the Fish and Chips Shops Not really But the way the author puts himself in the head of the main character, it s obvious that Heck cares about it, or at least has that flotsam floating around in his [...]

    9. An absolutely hysterical book about a boy with a brain tumour It shouldn t be funny, but it ABSOLUTELY is I mean, what author would be MAD enough to start their book with the heading and firts line ARSECHEESE I ask you Of course, it s Anthony McGowan.I love the way this novel unravels, drawing the reader ever deeper into the insanity that Henry s tumour causes him while he grapples with what this means to his life It s like his inner monologue has read all of his Negative Thoughts and is either [...]

    10. Don t let the cover fool you This is no Paul Jennings not that I have anything against Paul Jennings My point is, it s a little heavier than the cartoon cover might suggest Yes, it is funny Yes, it is about a teenage boy Yes, it is set predominnantly in a school Good for young teenage boys then Maybe and maybe not It is also about a boy who has a brain tumour one that talks to him and controls his behaviour So the theme of death and dieing, while it is dealt with in an unsual way, is important I [...]

    11. I have read this book twice now, which shows how much I love it, as I very rarely do that It was even better the second time This book is so full of witty phrases and laugh out loud bits, but it also tackles deep philosophical subjects like the meaning of life and what happens to us after we die in a very clever way.Hector is a likeable and hilarious character, and his narration of his antics with his talking brain tumour Henry who is also strangely loveable despite his educated insults and inse [...]

    12. Jack Tumor is a very interseting, but also a little sad novel The novel is about a young teen in Britain named Henry and his troubles in his school with bullies, friends, girls, and above all his brain tumor Hector quickly learns about his brain tumor, who prefers to be called Jack , but Jack knows that he and Henry dont have much time because he s still a deadly brain tumor , and strives to make the best of his stay in the boy s head Jack claims to know and can access everything that has ever b [...]

    13. I have to admit I left this story three quarters of the way through becasue it was so depressing towarsds the end, HOWEVERI did read lots of spoilers and whatever I may have initially thought about this story, I do not hesitatae for a moment to declare its absolute FANTASTIC BRILLIANCE, which I do suppose was highly influenced by reading McGowan s other book, Hellbent Its surprisingly funny for such a depressingly sad topic, and had me cringing at times, laughing out loud, as well as being dampe [...]

    14. This is a funny, realistic book about a 14 year old boy who is being tested for brain cancer As the novel begins, he starts to hear a voice in his head that he calls Jack Tumor hence the title The novel is set in England, so along with a lot of British slang is snogging what I think it is it creates a picture of school life in England It seems surprisingly similar to American high schools, except that the bullying is much pervasive I enjoyed this book and would give it a 9 out of 10, but it wil [...]

    15. Very cute, funny boy book Unfortunately, the most inappropriate likely to offend somewhat conservative parents, moment occurs in the first five or so pages of the book Kind of limits who I can recommend to Bummer Matt said he read another book by the same author that s a retelling of Dante s Inferno, and that it was also very funny but slightly inappropriate That was a really bad sentence, sorry, in a hurry We don t seem to own it, though

    16. from the author of Hellbent Hilarious, sad and romantic all at the same time About a boy who gets a brain tumor A talking brain tumor That starts taking over his life, by insisting that his only reason for existence is to perpetuate his genes You know what that might mean The protagonist from Hellbent makes a cameo.

    17. Quirky plot, but depth than first appears Good teen read Original British title Henry Tumour , a play on the name s similarity to Henry Tudor The author says the relationship between Henry the tumor and Hector his host mimics that of Prince Hal and Falstaff in Shakespeare s Henry IV, Part I The plot involves the battle between id and ego, pleasure and principle.

    18. Tidak ada cara yang lebih baik dalam menuliskan tumor otak secara komedi selain buku ini Sedih juga tapi gimana yah dilewatkan dengan tersenyum Tapi tetep sediiiihhh eaaa teteup Tau deh ah

    19. This book was actually pretty funny I think the story was a little weird, but it was still enjoyable I wasn t sure if I d like this book or not because of the way it was written, but it was alright

    20. I wasn t expecting to like this book, but it was amazing It was funny in the strange teenage boy way, and I got very attached to the main character and his friends I recommend this book to anybody who reads John Green or any funny, heartwarming books because that was exactly what this book was.

    21. This was a really funny book, though i think that making a comdey book out of a killing illness like a brain tumour is a bit sad but it was a good comdey.

    22. Great young adult fiction, very funny but unexpectedly powerful It left me a little shell shocked.

    23. Full review at yannabe 2009 09 01 review Summary Hector s hearing voices well, one voice and that s never good And this particular voice happens to be a talking brain tumor Also not good.Review Hey, writers Are you grappling with how to tackle a heavy topic like mortality without making a total downer of a book Here s a little known technique that might do the trick Add a talking brain tumor I know, this book sounds weird I picked it up at the library without reading the premise, so when I got h [...]
