The Point Angel Hawkins

Description

THE POINT is an endearing coming-of-age new adult fiction novel that follows Willoughs (don’t ask about his real name!) throughout his first year of college. Willoughs is sarcastic, quirky, and possibly one of the most side-tracked angsty youth who has a lot to say but then perhaps nothing at all. Willoughs is part of a band and after a moment of restlessness one fateful summer day decides he wants to try something new which ultimately leads him to meet Alice. Alice is a free-spirited, yet strong-willed coed with a clouded past that makes Willoughs start to open his eyes of there being more to life than the one he grew up in within Fernwood.

I liked the characters. I'd like to see more of Alice and Willoughs together, falling for each other. We know Alice is cool, but it would be nice to see why she like him. Maybe he can be active in the student group. I like a bit of a slow burn.

There is a line that I love: Willoughs tells Alice that for some reason physics resonated with him. He's a musician. Physics is the science of music. Resonance is both a music and physics term.

I enjoyed how lighthearted the plot and characters were. Nothing overly complex, but that's why I appreciated it. I enjoyed seeing Willoughs interact with his friends and family and seeing the plot unravel through the story was a fun ride.

From what I remember, it sort of reminds me of The Catcher and the Rye. Very similar vibes from the main character.

This book was a very light read, but very enjoyable. The author does a good job conveying a light-hearted story with some adult themes. The main character was likable and easily relatable.

A well constructed story that could, however, use a bit more execution. The hero wants an African-American girlfriend, and later gets one, but his motivations are unclear. What pushes him in this direction? My guess is that he wants to break the confinement of his ultra-WASP background, but I shouldn't have to guess. He and Alice are attracted to each other, that's clear. What is less clear is the basis of that attraction. How does it play out? The author does a good job of presenting "what," less so for "why."

Thank you so much for taking the time out to read my work and provide such an insightful comment! I often wonder just how much should be revealed as opposed to allowing the reader’s assumptions form their own opinion of Willoughs and his motivations. This is definitely something to consider of making more clear in any future revisions though!
