The Mega Metal Diary of Cleo Howard 1998 Reviews
The Mega Metal Diary of Cleo Howard 1998 by Sarah Tipper is a rock n' roll teenage blast. Gave me a good chuckle and at the same time a fuzzy feeling inside as I can relate to this kind of love for music. The author shares her passions and does so in an entertaining, quirky and unexpected way.It's an unconventional read that captured my attention right off the bat.1998 in the UK. All the dreams I had as a teen wanting to be from that part of the word. Faking the accent and falling in love with British music and certainly the musicians. When they did make it our way us girls were in a total frenzy. Acting as if they were from another universe. It was golden!This is the second book in the Cleo Howard series and I enjoyed this one just as much as the first. She is an easy gal to get attached to. After all she shares her Resolutions and such from her private diary. This is a fun, laughable escape that I liked very much. I was more of a punk than a rocker but I can relate to the love of music and of course, will never forget what it was like (treacherous and glorious) to be a sixteen year-old girl.
Another good read from Ms Tipper, and an easy book to plough through in stages due to the diary format. You definitely need to read the first volume before this, but these can be read before or after the following Eviscerated Panda books.Mega Metal doesn't have the same emotional impact as Very Metal for reasons which I won't reveal for spoiler-related reasons, and for that reason I'd say that the first book is better. However, I still thoroughly enjoyed keeping up with the early life of Cleo Howard.The author has a good knack of writing in a style that's believable for a girl of that age. Sometimes it comes across as a little immature, other times quite deep... pretty much the way a teenager's brain functions.Fingers crossed this is another series that keeps on growing until it catches up with the events in its parent series.
