Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

(12)
A lyrical novel about family and friendship from critically acclaimed author Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.

„By far my favourite contemporary novel!!“

Lena B., Thalia-Buchhandlung Linz Lentia

The encounter between Ari and Dante isn't intentional, yet they become close friends immediately.
Aristotle doesn't know how to swim. Dante can't speak spanish properly. Ari is the youngest of four siblings. Dante is an only child. Although they have nothing in common they develop a bond that's going to be far more than just friendship. Together they learn new things and grow with the fact of having a friend who understands what it means to be different. They don't need other friends. The just need each other.
What began with a question at an outdoor swimming pool expands into a sturdy bond rapidly.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe is a novel about friendship, love, finding oneself, self acceptance, discovering life and moreover the problems and difficulties in life.

Reading this book made me think and rethink a lot of things. It is a fantastic written novel and after reading it for the first time I just couldn't not read it again a few months later. Beyond that, I absolutely adore the cover of this book because it just reflects the plot so well.

„Discovering the Secretes of the Universe“

Sabrina Reiter, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien, Donauzentrum

This award-winning YA novel is all about growing up, finding out who you are and embracing that person.

Ari has always been a loner. Until he meets Dante, that is. Even though they are quite different they're quick to form a bond that's not easily broken. Hospital stays, time apart and the general awkwardness of being a teenager don't stop them from discovering all the secrets of the universe.

This book has no overly exciting plotline, but rather deals with the everyday life of the average teenager. It's about finding out who you are - be that ethnically, personally or sexually - and coming to terms with it.

"Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe" is a heart-warming, funny and true-to-life read with likable and relatable characters and I recommend this book to teenagers aged 14 and up.

A book to laugh to and to cry to
von Charlie am 28.05.2018
Bewertet: Taschenbuch

This book had me crying when reading a lot, both out of happiness and out of sadness. Every word seems to be thought through so well and even though it's very easily understandable (for anyone whose vocabulary wouldn't be so big) it is a masterpiece.

Ein Sommer, zwei Freunde, ein Leben
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 03.05.2018

Dies ist die ruhig erzählte, bewegende Geschichte einer besonderen Freundschaft. Die beiden Hauptcharaktere wachsen dem Leser in kürzester Zeit ans Herz und die Stimmung im Buch ist einfach unbeschreiblich. Fazit: Romantisch, einfühlsam und philosophisch; Wahrlich ein großartiges Buch

Lovely, lovely, lovely
von Svenja T am 20.08.2017
Bewertet: Taschenbuch

I am in love with these characters. The parents, Ari, Dante, Legs, all of them are wonderful and they all love each other so much, it's really heartwarming. The writing didn't always work for me. There were passages with too many short sentences and that just disrupted the flow. Which... I am in love with these characters.
