What I had began to assume would be a tragic life lesson story tailored to young adults became one of the most surprising and refreshingly rich narratives, embedded with universal themes for every age!
I was enjoying the story and listening with my 13 year old. We have loved other books by this author. I was super disappointed with the nearly pornagraphic descriptions of sex between the teens and a first blowjob. I'm a pretty open parent about discussing sex with my kids, but I felt it went too far. Can't recommend this book to anyone I know.
Meh...I've done worse things with my time. Truthfully, the book wasn't very good though.
It all felt stale and unoriginal. The author was purposefully going after my emotions...which made it impossible for me to really feel much of anything (except manipulated).
He does sound appropriately teen angst-y.
Nope. Uh-uh. Can't think of a thing.
I regret, with every fiber of my being, purchasing this "book." The characters--shallow, sexist, condescending, and boring; the plot--dull, and tries too hard to be inventive and philosophical. John Greene is the worst writer I have ever encountered. DO NOT spend your money on this awful, awful, awful book.
this is one of the best book in the world in my opinion. everything is this is earthen Hart warming funny or sad. I hope u love this book as much as I do.
Finally some depth. The earlier portion presented decadence almost like a virtue. Hardly a good example to young kids, though no doubt realistically portrayed, unfortunately.
