Turtles All The Way Down by John Green – 12 Days of Blogmas

John Green I hate you. I hate the fact that I can’t write like you or create such beautiful quotes and stories that have such an important impact on people. I hate that you had me sobbing on the train back to University and how I’ve once again fallen in love with another one of your incredible stories that I just can’t stop recommending to everyone.

As you’ve probably already guessed this is going to be a very positive review and I won’t be able to stop singing my praises for this book. I haven’t really enjoyed a John Green book since The Fault in Our Stars so after reading lots of other reviews I went into this book with all my fingers and toes crossed that I too would enjoy it! Luckily I did!Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis. Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

John Green never fails to create such unique yet relatable characters who warm your heart, especially Aza who’s strength and thought process gave me a keen insight on the works of the mind and expanding my view on things. From the outside, she looks like she’s got everything under control but that isn’t the case, inside she struggles with her spiralling thoughts and I thought Green presented this in such a real and reflective way. Daisy was easily one of my favourite characters in the entire book not only for her undying love for Star Wars and her fanfiction but I really appreciated how she dealt with her friendship with Aza. It’s clear from all of this just how much we need love, friendship, acceptance and understanding and how difficult it can be to try and understand the challenges life likes to throw at us.

It’s pretty clear that I fell absolutely in love with this book as everything about it was perfect, the storyline, the characters and the way you made me feel when I finished it. If there was an option on Goodreads to give it 10 stars then I would!
