Heartstopper 2 by Alice Oseman
Dearest Books Lovers,
It is with immense pleasure that I give you this news today, thanks to Oscar Vault who will never stop spoiling us, Heartstopper 2 is released, the most beautiful and sweet story, made in comics, I have ever seen, by the talented Alice Osman.
I already tell you that if you have not read the first book maybe you will want to avoid this review, or maybe not … it will be inevitable to not make spoilers as the story picks up where it left off, melting our hearts already at the first drawings of Nick and Charlie.
This story in some ways reminded me a little bit of Call me by your name, the film, which until now I have watched at least eighty times … the last one was only a few days ago, yet Heartstopper gives you those little joys that at the end of CMBYN we don’t have …
If you have read the first volume you must remember that it ended with Charlie kissing Nick and the latter went away. Well, if you have come this far with reading it means that either you love spoilers, or you are so sweet and anxious that you cannot wait to have the book in hand. Nick regretted his action, he too wanted to kiss Charlie and so the next day, when Charlie feels stupid for having done that gesture that perhaps ruined his friendship with Nick, very embarrassed about it, Nick shows up at his home, and one of the few details that will remain in your mind after that scene is that this time it’s Nick kissing Charlie.
And I would say that I have also said too much because already what I have given you is a gigantic spoiler, but having to talk about the book I could not have done otherwise since this happens in the first pages. However, as always, smooth, addicting and exciting reading. Perhaps it took me even less time to read this second volume, but I was waiting for it with so much anxiety that I could not be blamed.
As you can deduce at this point Nick and Charlie are “together”, secretly, however, because Nick has not yet understood exactly what his sexual orientation is, so he doesn’t want anyone to understand the situation yet. As always Charlie has to deal with his problems with the other guys, but it won’t be a problem with Nick by his side.
And now I really stop because I could talk for hours about the sweetness of these two characters, even greater in this second volume. But one more thing I must add, the drawings that are at the end of each volume with the outfits and all the curiosities are spectacular, I could read fifty pages of those alone.
