Turtles All the Way Down Reviews
1.5 “John Green is definitely a miss for me” Stars
“Reading someone’s poetry is like seeing them naked”
UHU. I just bumped to 2 stars because I am reading a 1-star book right now and this is not at that level. I can truly appreciate the OCD representation in Aza so yeah let's leave it at 1.5 near 2.
➽ FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED.
My problem was expectations. I thought I would relate, I didn’t. My problem was feeling. I thought I would feel, I couldn't.
JG fans please don't throw tomatoes at me. Altho ...more
I don’t have a very good relationship with John Green books, they are CLEARLY hit or miss for me (hit: TFIOS) (miss: Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, Let it Snow, Will Grayson x2) YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE MY DILEMMA IN PICKING UP THIS BOOK
But I was pleasantly surprised
So Turtles all the way down did have the john green elements i.e.
- Mental health rep
- Tragic characters with tragic backstories
- 16 year old philosophers (it wasn’t so bad in this book)
- Hilarious best friends
- The ending that l ...more
4.5 STARS I REALLY REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK.
If I leave this review blank for now, I may force myself to film a video review (which I really want to do!) hahah
anybody can look at you. its quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.
oh my gosh. oh my gosh. oh my gosh. i now forgive john green for making me wait 5 years for a new book because this was perfection. honestly, my new favourite of his. i know john green stories tend to be a hit or miss with people, but there is no denying he can write. i loved all the intricacies, and poetic sentences, and overall warm feeling of this book.
i also really appreciate the personal side of this ...more
I’ve been having a bad run with YA lately. I’ve loved it for so long that I persevere on, remembering that there are gems, that there are treasures, but increasingly I’ve found myself worried - have I grown out of it? Have I overdone it? Each novel seems to be repeating some unspoken pattern, or at least trying to make something new out of the same ingredients. It was with trepidation, then, that I wandered in to Turtles All The Way Down, thinking “yes, I’ve liked John Green books in the past, b ...more
I thought I would fall in love with this book but I just didn't. 😕
Now I give all of the stars to Aza, Davis and Noah.
I loved Aza so much and as I have mental disorders I can totally relate to her. She's a wonderful character.
Davis is her boy ish friend and he's awesome too. Noah is his brother. They are totally rich and their father is missing. So this is about finding each other and finding a missing father. A few other things thrown into the mix.
I think what kept this from being a 5 star wa ...more
Si me seguís sabréis que no soy el mayor fan de John Green. Sin duda, es un autor que me gusta leer porque sus historias tienen un algo que me gusta, pero hay historias que me han gustado muchísimo y otras que no me han gustado absolutamente nada.
Mil veces hasta siempre pasa al top, a ser una de las mejores. Le habría dado cinco estrellas pero me ha faltado un poquito para eso, el dejarme destrozado o flipando. Sin embargo, ha sido un buen viaje en conjunto y ahora os explico p ...more
This was ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT and also gave me an existential crisis so thanks for that. I'm actually floored by how good it was. I mean, I haven't read a "new" John Green novel in forever, but this is worth the wait. I wasn't actually nervous going in. It's about mental health (#OWNVOICES I REMIND YOU) and missing persons and smol sad rich boys and everything about this just shouts that it's my kind of novel. It really really hit home so hard for me. I loved it.
OK note on the title: I see a lot ...more
