Here’s what I know about the realm of possibility—
it is always expanding, it is never what you think
it is. Everything around us was once deemed
impossible. From the airplane overhead to
the phones in our pockets to the choir girl
putting her arm around the metalhead.
As hard as it is for us to see sometimes, we all exist
within the realm of possibility. Most of the limits
are of our own world’s devising. And yet,
every day we each do so many things
that were once impossible to us.

Enter The Realm of Possibility and meet a boy whose girlfriend is in love with Holden Caulfield; a girl who loves the boy who wears all black; a boy with the perfect body; and a girl who writes love songs for a girl she can’t have.

These are just a few of the captivating characters readers will get to know in this intensely heartfelt new novel about those ever-changing moments of love and heartbreak that go hand-in-hand with high school. David Levithan plumbs the depths of teenage emotion to create an amazing array of voices that readers won’t forget. So, enter their lives and prepare to welcome the realm of possibility open to us all. Love, joy, and these stories will linger.

    I'm not sure what it is about these books in verse that really does it for me but I'm yet to be disappointed by one. I've read some of those by Ellen Hopkins and Lisa Schroeder and I found that writing in verse only added to the emotions I felt as a reader. Maybe it's because it hones in on the point and it's all laid out within a few stanzas instead of meandering about.Whatever the reason, The Realm of Possibility was no exception and I was constantly pulled through a rollercoaster of emotions - even though I admittedly didn't always get what was going on :)This is definitely the kind of book that you either love or hate, both for the fact that it's in verse and because David Levithan has a very unique writing style (that I happen to love the more I encounter it).

    David Levithan is an author who certainly doesn't shy away from getting into the mindset of teens and being representative of a wide variety of social groups and relationship perspectives. This isn't my favourite of his books (The Lover's Dictionary and Every Day are probably my favourites), but it is definitely worth a look at if you enjoy seeing things from multiple dimensions and viewpoints.The book has a variety of writing styles, often using verse instead of standard prose, which is a nice touch, and consists of many chapters each featuring four different perspectives. At first glace it is quite disjointed, but as you continue to read, you see different character's stories tying together and see a web of relationships forming as you realise that you are now reading from the point of someone that you heard about in another character's own story.A flaw with so many characters is, obviously, that it can become confusing and you don't always pick up on the fact that you have 'met' this person before in another perspective. However, each new section lists the four character names at the start, and it is easy to flick back through and remind yourself which story links with which name. Without this I am not sure I would have enjoyed the book as much, so this was well thought through by Levithan.If you want to read a book that shows friendship; heterosexual and homosexual love and just the politics of relationships as you grow, then this is a nice snapshot of life through different eyes.

    I think that maybe this just wasn't my type of book. It was a SUPER quick read, I read the whole thing in just under an hour and that's not because I skim read or rushed, but because the style of the book allows for a very quick read.This is a series of 20 prose-poems. They are from 20 different characters and the poems are linked to each other in some way. I liked the idea behind this but I've never been a huge lover of poetry. I thought that some of the poems worked really well and I was able to make strong connections with the characters in a very short space of time. On the other hand, some of the poems gave very little for me to attach to and also didn't seem to lead me anywhere.A great idea and a diverse read, but the writing style wasn't quite my cup of tea.

  • By Lily on 3 September 2016

    This book, like all of Levithan's, is severely underrated. His most popular book is 'Will Grayson, Will Grayson' purely because he wrote it with John Green. After reading 'Will Grayson, Will Grayson' people are sometimes put off his writing, and do not try any of his other books.This book is incredible. It is unique in a way which makes it funny and honest and relatable and heartbreaking. Told from many people's different views, Leviathan manages to communicate every different form of love and friendship there is.Read this, and read it again, and love it.

  • By Amy on 13 August 2013

    Excellent book - a brilliant example of poetry interwoven with storytelling. Would recommend everyone reads this at some point - it says in the blurb it's a Young Adult book, but really this is suitable and interesting for all.The product had a highly ambiguous delivery time, with a 20 period, but that is shown clearly well in advance of payment and was happy to wait that time (although it didn't take anywhere near that long to arrive!) - so just be aware before ordering.Overall - a great book, and a very happy purchaser!

  • By Nerys James on 30 January 2013

    I'll be honest, it took me a while to get into the book, but once I was in I was stuck. Enthralled by the stories and narrative that he uses. I know David Levithan from his book Will Grayson Will Grayson he wrote with John Green which is another superb book. Although the stories and characters are all linked, I found it was it to treat most of them separately, but this doesn't detract fro. The overall enjoyment. So glad books are available on the Kindle.

    Stunning, delicate, well written. It takes a little time to adjust to the style of writing, but once you're into it, it's utterly brilliant!
