First drink. First prank. First friend. First love.

Last words.

  • Disappointingly Corny

    While John Green is an honest treasure, this books feels corny. It’s over romanticization of smoking cigarettes is cringeworthy. It only takes a few pages in to realize this is every wanna-be-deep softbois favorite book.
  • YES!

    It’s a classic. It’s hilarious and emotional. It’s a story of growing up and having new happy experiences as well as grief.
  • Great read!

    I read this on the recommendation of a young reader. I might be too old or cynical for it to have moved me. It just wasn’t as deep, or poignant as I thought it might be, and very anti-climatic.
  • Extremely Moving

    Greene does a good job of moving the readers emotions in this heart-wrencher.

    Granted I haven’t read a book in years, but this book peaked my interest so I said whatever I’ll read it. Maybe I can start reading some more, it’s good for the mind and the soul, plus it sounded good. And let me tell you, good was an understatement. This book is relatable, funny, sad, and a happy read all in one. If you have ever lost a loved one, you will feel for characters. If you ever were a little anti social in your teens, it’s like Miles is you, walking through the hell we call our high school days. As well as if you wreaked havoc as a rowdy teen, there’s a place for you in it as well. And the philosophical questions in this book... don’t even get me started. All in all, I feel different about many aspects in my life after this book. Mr. John Green, you are a genius. Enough said.
  • Good book
