    "Overall great !!!!!!"

    Very good and entertaining novel I especially think it's for Young adults the only thing I disliked was how Alaska sounded like a truck driver but otherwise I couldn't stop listening.

    "Really good characters"

    I enjoyed this book and probably like others, was looking for another book by John Green as excellent as The fault in our stars. So I was disappointed for awhile but the characters are very lovable and the book really does have a lot to say. I think it is a very good second best. And look forward to reading more by John Green. The narration was perfect.

    "Captures teen angst beautifully"

    Didn't expect this honest portrayal of teenage struggle to have such a powerful conclusion! So glad I read this hopeful story!

    "It's just great..."

    I have to say that this will be one of those books I will remember for life. The characters are so great and the way the make you relate so much to your own experiences in life, gives you that feeling of "looking back" when you where a kid...
    I have to hand it to the reader... He makes the book AMAZING. Maybe even better than if actually read by yourself.
    The story might get a little slow at the end but it is still hands down a good listen. Buy and enjoy.

    "It all changes in a moment."

    Felt slow, then changed and I realized the buildup to the point of the story.

    "Back to the teenage years"

    John Green has an amazing way of getting into the mind of teenagers and being completely honest about their feelings, hopes, dreams, and quirky way of thinking. I loved listening to this book!

    "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!!!
