So the Queue for The Fault in Our Reviews is currently absolutely empty!
I’m going to let it stay empty for a couple days to let the reviews come flooding in (likely not to me directly but I’d love if anyone would like to send reviews in of any John Green book or John Green project or John Green himself so feel free!) and in a couple days I’ll go ahead and fill it back up and we’ll be back to normal.
If anyone has anything they’d like to submit I’ll go ahead and post them as they come in the meantime. so please do that. C:
To clarify, it’s by John Green so obviously it’s amazing, but I’ve read a lot by him and after Looking For Alaska I didn’t think it was as good. but now I’ve finished. I nearly threw it across the room.
John Green never fails his readers. It never fails me, us, and it won’t ever fail you.
Paper Towns makes you realize that there are people out there, people whom you thought you already knew, but in reality, you don’t. It made me think of the people around me, how they keep their true selves…
I just finished Paper Towns. Holy crap, I think John Green stalks my life. In all seriousness though this book was amazing. It makes me want to do what Margo did, sigh. I would if I was brave. Okay bye.
The Fault in Our Stars broke my heart in the best of ways possible. I cried, I laughed, I did this strange in between thing. I just have to say the John Green is an crazy brilliant author, and I wish I can make my thoughts in to half as amazing constellations as he can make his.
I put off reading it for two reasons. Firstly, I wanted the hype to die down so I wouldn’t be disappointed. On hindsight, I can’t imagine how I would have been. Secondly, because a friend was just coming out of the other side of treatment, and it was just too scary a prospect to read about someone…
So, before my mom left for Utah on a business trip, I loaned her The Fault in Our Stars. Almost immediately after she started, I got a text from her saying that John Green is “brilliant.” Which, naturally, made me excited. Then she stopped reading while she was actually there to readCatching…
I finished TFiOS a few hours ago. I’m feeling a lot, not a ton of sadness, though there is some of that, but just like I, I dunno, so many feelings and thoughts provoked by this book. It’s fantastic, and you all should read it.
Then I started An Abundance of Katherines, I’m about halfway through…
I am about half way through TFiOS. Belatedly so, but alas; we read when we can and when we must.
This novel has officially attached itself to my soul, not unlike a welcome and healthful parasite. I am giving it purpose by reading it, and it is giving me an emotional experience that I’m attempting…
So I finally had a chance to start reading The Fault In Our Stars today.
Yeah, needless to say I started reading it this morning and finished twenty minutes ago. I would have finished faster if I didn’t have things to do all day.
I am still processing it.
But just. Wow.
John, if you are reading this, thank you for writing such a beautiful story. It is truly amazing and everything I wanted it to be and more. I need to reread a little slower sometime soon to appreciate it more.
I made my Mom read TFioS. She loved it. The first thing she said after she finished it was, “That was so sad! But really really good. But so sad! I was crying!” And then I asked if it was a book that ‘fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book’. She said it was.
If anyone is interested in submitting anything of their own to The Fault in Our Reviews or if you would like a reblog removed just message me about it and I’ll gladly listen. We’re running out of things in the queue and I’d be very happy to have people submit things !
Also if you’d be willing…
we’re running out of things in the queue again and I’d REALLY love some posts submissions or anything. I’d love to keep this going…
I’ve never read a John Green book before. He was at LeakyCon and I think I missed every event featuring him, so I’m excited to read these. I heard I’m going to cry while reading “Fault”, but I’ll get through it. These books sound amazing. :)
