That’s just enough time for Scott to fight Todd, keep Ramona happy, fend off demented ex-girlfriends.

 

The Summary of book 1 and 2.

Continuing my review of the series I up to book three I know its been a minute between reviews I apologize for that . Just there were other books I had to have. Now a wrap up  in the first two books Scott has lost his girl  friend and his motivation to do anything. He’s living with a his gay best friend who basically takes care of him. Until one night in a dream Ramona skates by literally and for the first time in a year he’s enraptured by a woman. He finds her charms and the two begin to date only one problem her 7 exs he has to fight for the right to date her. So far he’s defeated two exs but the latest may prove to be his end since Ramona’s ex is now dating Scott’s ex the woman who crushed him. Can he face his past and fight for his new beginning?

 

Scott at the beginning of the book has come face to  face  with his worst nightmare  Envy Adams his ex with an invitation  for Sex Bob-omb  to  open for her band, suspicious . Sensing malicious intent  which is verified when Ramona’s ex Todd greets them. Okay this is where it gets interesting the fight in the book is more drawn out than the movie. If you have seen the movie  and haven’t read the books this will surprise you. You would be surprised  how good  Scott Pilgrim book three is. Bryan Lee O’Malley writing is smart, sarcastic and full of angst. The choppy style in which the story transitions enhances the story  easily  weaving   flashbacks into the  story to explain character relations etc. There is more heart and substance than I expected . I liked the way Scott deals with Knives apologizing for the way he treated her they were a lot of moments in this book that scene was one of the few the movie glosses over. The fight between Todd and Scott the scene at Honest Eds is hilarious is not in the movie.I throughly enjoyed book 3 I gave it 4.5, Next up is Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together .
