    "I go o seek a great perhaps"

    This book is inline with the other John Green books I have read so far. Tackling difficult issues while reminding me what it was like to be a teenager.

    "Good finish"

    A bit slow and predictable for the beginning, but a great last hour!! 2nd best Green book to date (Fault in Our Stars still takes the cake).

    "Wonderful"

    The narrator made the female characters sound weird. Besides that it was very well written and I loved it. Now top 10 of my most recommended book.

    I love this book so much! John Green is an incredible author. I just wish the audio book was narrated by him. But the narrator did a good job!

    "Brilliant!"

    So funny, heartbreaking and true. Makes me wish I went to boarding school... or that regular high school was this entertaining.
