    "Loved it, great book"

    I loved the way this book portrayed Alaska in such a way that she did not strike you as a consequentially main character until after the incident and also how Pudge's history class often played a key role in the in between the lines meanings of each chapter

    "I thought this headline was ( optional )???"

    This was my first John Green book. I was pleasantly surprised by this book and could not quit listening to it... I was cleaning my house with a Bluetooth in just so I could keep going with it!!!!

    The narrative speaker was also amazing... I will look for book narrated by him for future listening!!!

    "NO zombies."

    A great story about people... with NO zombies or vampires or murder investigation as a crutch.

    "Favorite green book"

    A memorable story that will make you read again. I've done so 8 times. great for the fan of John green his best book ever. The charchter are complex it isn't just another green love story. it's style is nice, and the forshadowing is amazing. Green wrote a fantastic book. If you are unaware of what happens in the book, it will really catch you by surprise, just as it's suppose to. Written well narrator can be a touch bit monotone but it's still good. Overall 5/5

    "Basically"

    The moral has meaning.
    I do not recommend it I found all the descriptions about sex unappealing and unnecessary.

    "Eloquent"

    It made me laugh, cry, slam my fists in anger and calm me down.
    It made me bipolar with my emotions. I recommend this book to anyone who wants an emotional roller coaster or a good read for a car/plane ride
