As I said before, I don't know why I read this when I knew what was waiting for me. A bunch of pretentious selfish teenagers thinking about their existence. Just look at these sentences: "The way he talked about thoughts was the way I experienced them—not as a choice but as a destiny. Not a catalog of my consciousness, but a refutation of it." No one talks like this, except maybe some inspirational spiritual leaders in movies where the MC has to go through some enlightenment to continue his journey. Besides being smart and profound, Aza is also a great friend (sarcasm). If you haven't noticed, Aza thinks about her existence and thoughts a lot. And when I say a lot, I mean ALL. THE. FREAKING. TIME. She's so selfish, she literally doesn't know anything about her supposed best friend. Or anyone else for that matter. "I feel like a noose is tightening around me and I want out, but struggling only cinches the knot." That's how I felt while reading this. There's supposed to be a love story? I don't know. There's this guy Davis. His father disappears. They've know each other since they were kids. They start talking. He gives her some money. They talk a little. They kiss. And I guess that's it. I haven't felt anything. No attraction, no emotions, nothing. It's like I was in a head of an anxious robot, and all around him were robots. The only character that felt real, and that I cared about was Noah. Daisy was fine at the beginning but then she forgave the one whose name I won't mention again. I'm sorry John Green, but it's over between us. I gave you plenty of chances to restore my faith in you but you wasted all of them. From now on, I will avoid your books at all costs. I can't go through this kind of torture again. ⭐⭐ . . -cijela recenzija na hrvatskom je na mom blogu yaknjige.blogspot.hr #bookworm #bookphotography #bibliophile #booklover #bookaddict #instareads #knjiga #book #bookblogger #instabook #recenzije #reader #bookish  #reading #booktag #coverlove #knjige #recenzija #johngreen #turtlesallthewaydown #rantreview 9 ♡ 0 ✍ March 22

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green is a heartwarming story about Aza who is battling with her own inner thoughts, trying to be a good daughter, a good friend and trying to live the life she wishes for. It’s also a story about Davis, who is the son of a missing billionaire, who’s trying his best to be the good, influential big brother to Noah. I’m not a huge fan of Green and although I had some expectations from this book, I tried not to expect too much. It wasn’t that bad, it was awesome either. TATWD was one of those books that talked about mental health in a way I haven’t read before. The portrayal of anxiety and compulsions was so apt and true and it was amazing how John Green described the whole thing. He kept in mind that mental illness does not only affect the patient but also everyone around them; family, friends, everyone. I loved the little but if romance that Green added too. I think it was a refreshing add to the whole story. Although the romance was not the main focus, Aza and Davis seemed very much real to me. I could actually relate to their thoughts and their desperation. I loved the book more because of how relatable it was. However, I think the plot wasn’t really developed. I think it would have been better if John Green focused on either of the things the mental illness or the mystery part. Because the two got mixed together, the real essence of the book was lost. Sure, there was a great portrayal of anxiety but the mystery element? It wasn’t just there. I felt that the book was kind of rushed too. I also think that if it was quite longer and focused on both the aspects more broadly, the book could’ve been much better. I didn’t really understand why the whole missing-father plot was necessary. I really didn’t get that part. But but, the moment where I read and realized the connection to the title, I was mindblwon. It was amazing how Green played with words and how impact full some of them were. I really loved those philosophical talks between Aza and Davis. Overall, this book was a quick and lovely read. I would definitely recommend it to others. Kajree Gautom(@kajree.g )writes a Book Review on Turtles All the Way Down. #johngreen 94 ♡ 0 ✍ March 22
