Turtles All the Way Down by John Green was very intriguing to many audiences, especially teens and young adults. The way the story was written was that you could interpret it in many ways. Especially the ending.This could be a hit or miss with the people that read this book. For me, I think the very beginning and when you learned more about the characters was very interesting because you learned some background with them, and I always like that part of the book because you get to see the characters grow. The ending of this book though, I loved but at the same time I hated it. Normally I like to read books that have structure but this book you could choose how it ended you can choose what happened to the characters. I feel like the end was too soon and I definitely want to see more from this book, but at the same time I feel like it would be difficult to continue the story and have it be as amazing as it was. When you reached the climax I was so excited and I could not set the book down, even the falling action was very exciting. John Green really made me want to read this book for forever.

This was beautiful. And I am fully aware that at least some of my loving it was being so excited about having a new John Green book-- I'm just going to acknowledge that up front. This book is so wonderfully John Green. Fun and witty trains of thought about interesting things. Lots of random new facts and trivia to put in my head. Engaging characters. And it helps us learn about mental illness. I am so thankful for books like these. Sometimes books about mental illness can be a struggle to read because they hurt, but the point is to help us attempt to understand and empathize with that hurt. I like how Green made it clear that even Aza's best friends had a tough time with her illness. She couldn't fully explain it even to them. It hurt the people she loved-- but SHE didn't hurt the people she loved and they understood this. And Aza came to understand it. Great book. I'm definitely ordering more copies with my grants. Wonderful example for my literature class where we focus on identity and representation.

WHAT A GREAT BOOK! I am not a big fan of reading books, but I decided to give John Green’s new book a try. I have previously read “A Fault in Our Stars,” “Looking for Alaska,” “Paper Towns,” and “Will Grayson, Will Grayson.” John Green really did a fantastic job of writing this book. The plot makes you want to keep turning to the next page and then to the next page. I couldn’t put this book down! Excellent!
