Praise for Turtles all the Way Down


There are few subjects more upsetting than young people with cancer. But Green’s latest book, “Turtles All the Way Down,” is somehow far darker, not so much because of the subject matter — though that’s dark too — but because of how he chooses to write about it. This novel is by far his most difficult to read. It’s also his most astonishing. The New York Times review

In short, this novel confirms John Green as a great chronicler of teenage life. He captures the insecurities of youth in the way Judy Blume used to, and he ranks alongside such American masters of teen conversation as SE Hinton and John Hughes. That’s to say, as with the dialogue in The Breakfast Club or The Outsiders, it may not be how young people actually speak, but it is how they might wish to speak – which is possibly more important. The Guardian review

John Green hasn't created a book as much as he's created a place – a place to have your most indefinable and grotesque thoughts articulated, to ponder the disconnected reality you experience when you can't actually remember how you got to school or work, to acknowledge the times when your body feels like a disgusting cage, even as it does the vital work to keep you alive. No matter where you are on the spiral – and we're all somewhere – Green's novel makes the trip, either up or down, a less solitary experience. The Globe and Mail review
