Has anyone read it? I like John Green but I'm on the fence based on the reviews

This is dd's absolute favourite author. She loves all things John Green. FWIW she adored the book, put it on my nightstand and has nagged me daily to read it.

metamorphisis posted 3/5/2012 09:07 AM

Oh.. and I got her a signed copy

I asked her again this morning and her advice is "READ IT!!!!".
She's very well read and a very smart cookie, but she is 15, which sometimes inspires a loyalty that isn't always rational. So it could be a fabulous book or she could be biased.

Does she follow him in youtube? The Green brothers have their own channel

metamorphisis posted 3/6/2012 12:12 PM

You bet your boots she does. She's a nerdfighter

Aww! John read chapters 1 & 2 live... The 15 year old in me has a huge crush on his 34 year old self! Someone should call my parents...Then again, the real 15 year old me had a literary crush on Gabriel Garcia Marquez & Frank Kafka

So cute. You know I am slightly pleased that my daughter looks up to slightly nerdy, extremely intelligent , kind authors. No rappers or media bad boys thank god .

She told me to tell you "DFTBA".

Always! BTW, staying away from bad boys is an art that requires tons of practice so starting at an early age helps

Like the Greens will say the Venn Diagram of guys you don't want to date and guys who don't like smart girls, is a circle

First I've heard of it, but the title is catchy and cool!

I'm reading for IRL Book Club and needless to say most of the females of the group are on board but a few of the guys are struggling their way through If you ask me, they're jealous of Gus because he's awesome

I keep reading dd the posts from "My friend in my book club forum" .

Whenever I get half way through your sentences she says "Yes!!". And to this one she made a sad face and said.. "I adore Gus. Gus is good."

OK dammit. I'll read the book.

Yay! You have been assimilated

I just finished it today. I liked it, but was overall kind of "meh" about it. It seemed a bit too melodramatic for me. Too much teenager, overthinking, angst....

Halfway through, I thought I was going to love it but then it got less and less appealing to me. I was glad when it ended.

metamorphisis posted 3/14/2012 17:55 PM

Spirit, isn't he a young adult writer. That's kind of his target market from what I understand so I'm not surprised about teenager vibes in a teenager book.

I've been sick and haven't read it yet.

traicionada posted 3/15/2012 05:26 AM

John writes for YA which in the book world means 14 to 23 and since mentally I am still 16, it's all good. Then again, I manage doctors and nurses for a living so this book doesn't sound half as melodramatic as my Mondays
