Turtles All the Way Down

(8)
The wait is over! John Green, the #1 bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars, is back, with a book hailed by the Guardian as 'a new modern classic'.

'It's quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.'

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there's a hundred thousand dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett's son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza's story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.

First edition includes an exclusive jacket poster featuring some of John's most brilliant and memorable quotes.

As she and her best friend Daisy find out, that a very important businessman have dissapeared, and that his company pays 100 000 Dollars to the finder of him they wanna get the reward. And the lost man is no other than the father of Aza's campmate Davis. But Davis don't want Aza and Daisy to look for his father and pays them the reward and in change they don't look for his father anymore. Like the most of the John Green books that i read, I love Turtles all the way down. John Green has such a special and adorable style of writing and you fall in love with every character immediately. If you are a fan of "The Fault in our Stars" ,"Looking for Alaska" or "Paper Towns", you will love Turtles all the way down.

I kind of associated his books with soppy love stories and the need for an abundance of handkerchiefs, but Aza’s story was a far cry from that! It‘s not so much a love story than a story about love - self-love, parent’s love, friend’s love, old love and new love. A big part of the novel is about solving a crime and it’s so well structured and thought through that I was hooked and even though I had some issues with really comprehending Aza’s feelings, I could not put this book down until I finished it. Green writes authentic and honest about mental illness, you can tell that he is familiar with what he’s writing and he makes it so easy to empathize and broaden your mind. The ending was beautiful! I was worried it would be too unrealistic, cheesy or sad, but it settled in the middle, with a positive outlook that warmed my heart.

Finally John Green released his new books and now that I've read it I'm so happy. In case you don't know: I love John Green's books (except für 'The fault in our stars' - this one I actually dislike very much) and when he announced 'Turtles all the way down' I really couldn't wait to read it. The moment I held the book in my hands was so emotional especially when reading through the quotes which are inside the jacket of the book (this goes only for those books in the Special first edition). It actually almost made me cry which is hard to achieve because I really don't cry because of books or movies. So, coming to the cover of the book: I love it. It's pretty and the 'picture' perfectly fits the title. Coming to the title I have to admit that I really didn't understand why somebody would name their book 'Turtles all the way down'. It really made no sense to me - until I came to the part in the book where it was kind of explained. I really loved that part. Talking about parts I loved: there are some of them and I really have to admit that this wasn't what I expected. I expected this typical John Green book but with this one I hadn't the feeling that it was typical. Of course you could tell by reading that Green wrote the book but it was better than the others. After reading the book it's my favourite one of him because it was actually the one I needed the shortest time to read. I know my goodreads says something else but this is because I stated I was reading it when I only had read a few pages and after thatI put the book aside cause I had some other books to read. So actually I finished the book in three days which is quite good - it normally takes me over one week to read an English book! But I read so smooth and I couldn't stop because it was amazing. It was hard to put it away because I was thinking of the book literally all the time. I was thinking about what would happen next and this only happens to me with books that I in the end rate with 5+ stars (even though you can only rate five). Aza the protagonist seemed weird to me because of the thumb thing she was doing all the time. In fact: when she did that and described it I was thinking of how it would feel if I did it to myself and this thought was actually kind of horryfying! But when it came to herself as a character without this thumb thing I really could feel her. It wasn't easy to get an overview of her and understand everything but when it came to this I was really able to understand her. And at some parts it felt like I was her in this book. It felt like I was the one having all these problems. This, I see as a very positive aspect! Actually all in all I can say that I adored the book and that the ending killed me. Like every ending of every John Green book did (except for 'The fault in our stars'). I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars and if you haven't read it yet I'll tell you something: go to the next book store and get this book. It is amazing!!!
