From Keanu Reeves and Idris Elba to Timothee Chalamet, A Field Guide to Internet Boyfriends is the ultimate celebration of the suave, sexy, sensitive, and silly celebrities who have captured our hearts and memes! Handsome and heartfelt, with winning smiles and pinnable Tweets — this is what Internet Boyfriends are made of. But who are these meme-able men, and what makes them catch fire online? Discover the answers to these questions and more in A Field Guide to Internet Boyfriends, an interactive exploration of our collective crushes.
Entertainment journalist Esther Zuckerman breaks down the world of Internet Boyfriends — and even a few Internet Girlfriends — from documentary-style “spotting guides” to discussions on the key categories of boyfriend, like Sensitive Souls, Beautiful Boys and Daddys. A playful, teen magazine-style quiz — to help readers find their ideal crush — and in-depth profiles of some of the most beloved Internet Boyfriends and Girlfriends, from Ryan Gosling (the original) to Harry Styles (the Gen Z icon) to Janelle Monae (the space queen), round out this fully-illustrated romp through the celebs behind the memes.
This book, Internet Boyfriends by Esther Zuckerman is an entertaining read. As an inspiring to be writer, I found it as an interesting tool. It inspired ideas for characters. The book featured the most loved/popular men and women. They each had their own quirks and different attitudes. Things like that sparks ideas for fiction writing. Also, due to not watching TV like my fellow peers, I had no idea who a good majority of these celeb crushes were. Therefore, this was educating me on who is who and so forth. Some of them I recognize and others I still can’t place. But it was written in a way that gave a whole new perspective to these human beings who are idolized by so many.
