After the Fault in Our Stars, I become an immediate fan of John Green’s work. I even enjoyed Looking for Alaska. So, when I learned about his new book Turtles All the Way Down was coming out I was stoked. And now that I have to be marked on my calendar. And now I just finished reading it and in this review, I will be talking about my thoughts on Turtles All the Way Down.
In Turtles ALl the Way Down, the book focuses on a teenage girl named Aza who goes on a mystery hunt along with her friend Dasy and try to find out what happened to the disappearance of a Billionaire. The Billionaire let say was supposed to go to trial and disappeared out of now one. But, he did leave two clues he left his sons behind to pick up the pieces. Aza and Daisy use that opportunity to dig up clues in hopes find out what happened and hope to get the reward in return.At the same time, the story also focuses on the friendship between Aza and Davis the billionaire’s son. As well, the story focuses on the struggles Aza has to go through when dealing with her mental illness.
The book was actually better than what I thought. I really enjoyed the book. Maybe not as much as The Fault in Our Stars, which by the is one of my all-favorite books but its up there. I really enjoyed that fact that the book focuses on many subplots throughout the book and how they somehow connect in a way. For one the main focuses were on the mysterious disappearance of the billionaire and trying to see how it would unfold can’t me feeling suspenseful. I like the fact that the book mostly just made us the readers ask “what happened to him?”, “Why did he leave?” and “What’s happens next?”.
Another part of the story was two main characters Aza and Davis. I like how throughout the book seeing how the relationship between them develop. I like how they are some much alike and can relate. I also like the way they communicate and how they accept each other. I think one of my favorite things about Green’s characters is how they are so real and just really smart characters in their own way. But at the same time, they have their own flaws.
Lastly, the book lets you step inside the world of Aza who throughout the book deals her own mental illness. I also like how much it makes you think and how the book shows us on how the rest of the worlds reacts to that person.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading Turtles All the Way Down and how easy, relatable it is. If you interesting in checking out this book I will have the links below and also near the picture above. And until my next post keep on reading.
