Turtles All the Way Down - JOHN GREEN - Review

Published: November 22, 2017

John Green entered my world with Paper Towns. I read this book in 2011 and I loved it. From there I picked up The Faults in Our Stars in 2012. That, my friend, was an amazing book.

Turtles All the Way Down is one of the best coming of age stories ever.

I can say how wonderful it is. I may have started reading the book a month after I got it. (I got it a week before its release).

I liked how John Green is able to give us a first-hand point of view of OCD. People don't understand how OCD affects us. But then again, it affects everyone differently, who has it.

The story follows a teenager who finds out that she can make a quick 100,000 dollars. And ba ba bah.

That's what the back cover says. What this book is really about is illnesses. How it works, from a first-hand point of view. John Green has OCD.

This book is, more or less, just a way for him to explain to others how it works, for him. At least that's how I see it.

The Fault in Our Stars was quoted extremely by fans. Not just one line here and there, but almost every page had a quote-worthy line.

John didn't really try for that, which often is the case. But in this story, it's almost like he was trying way too hard. It's was a bit of a distraction.

The story isn't a sequel to the Fault in Our Stars. Yes, someone did ask that.

The writing was good. Not epic, but pretty good.

The plot was great. I feel like it should have been a longer novel. Like it was going way too fast. But the flow was constant. I hate when I come to a story that has to good flow and then the author realizes that it due out in a month and needs to quickly wrap up.

Development of the Characters was fantastic. I wanted so much more.

This book was worth waiting years for. And it's sure as hell worth your time.

I would rate this a 8.90/10.00

I'm gonna stop this review and have you start reading this book, NOW!
