Turtles All the Way Down Reviews
“Spirals grow infinitely small the farther you follow them inward, but they also grow infinitely large the farther you follow them out.”
Well, this is awkward.
I went into this thinking I wouldn’t like it. Heck, I went into it pretty much expecting to dislike. And yes, I know that’s a horrible thing to say, and a terrible reason to read a book, but come on, you can hardly blame me.
I hated The Fault in Our Stars, with all of its extremely pretentious characters (although I did cry a ...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
2 Stars...and that's me being generous.
This book was, well...not good.
I went into this with somewhat high hopes.
I knew it was about a girl with anxiety issues and - as someone who struggled with a lot of anxiety as a hormone-ridden, depressed teen who lost a parent at a young age myself, (much like Aza) I expected to really connect with this story.
At least on some level.
One reviewer I follow even ranked this as her top read of 2017. Said it was "life changing."
To each their own ...more
Let us play a little game called "What could this book possibly about?"
First off, we can argue a bit about the setting. His early work would suggest that he prefers warm places, but over the years he has slowly migrated to the Midwest.We can assume that this time it will be set on the sun, for the conditions are best for cultivating our feels, and destroying our hope.
Next, we can examine the characters. They must be the perfect combination of witty, socially awkward, beautiful, and of course, bu ...more
“It's turtles all the way fucking down, Holmesy. You're trying to find the turtle at the bottom of the pile, but that's not how it works."
"Because it's turtles all the way down," I said again, feeling something akin to a spiritual revelation.”
my relationship with john green is hit and miss and whether our relationship would end or continue all hinged on this book. folks, I'm pleased to say he's not cancelled yet.
Honestly, this book almost didn't feel like John Green. It does have staple John ...more
John Green is one of those authors that always brings the feels. Turtles All the Way Down is a book about mental illness, it’s a book about the power of lifelong friendship, and there is a bit of romance thrown in the mix (though not much).
“I would always be like this, always have this within me. There was no beating it. I would never slay the dragon, because the dragon was also me. My self and the disease were knotted together for life.”Aza’s story isn’t the easiest to read, and ...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
actual review to come
NOTE: i know what "turtles all the way down" means, i know that the spiral holds significance, and i know that this cover is still full-on ugly. please do not feel obligated to explain to me the wonderful intricacies i am missing. the only thing i am missing is my vision, because this cover is so ugly it blinded me
yes i am already biased against john green, but can we agree that this cover is straight up UGLY???
(i borrowed my sister' ...more
