The thing about a spiral is, if you follow it inward, it never actually ends. It just keeps tightening, infinitely.”
Turtles All The Way Down is the newest release by John Green, who happens to be one of my favorite authors (but isn’t he everyone’s?). The second this book was release in stores, I hopped right over to my local bookstore and grabbed one. I’ve loved John Green’s books since high school and So far, I’ve read every single book published by John Green, with the exception of Will Grayson, Will Grayson.
In Turtles All The Way Down, Aza Holmes and her best friend Daisy begin to pursue the mystery of disappearing fugitive billionaire Russell Picket when they stumble upon and befriend his son, Davis Pickett. All the while, Aza battles with anxiety while also trying to be everything she is expected to be by her mother and friends.
I absolutely fell in love with this book, though I went in skeptically. How could an author that I enjoyed so much manage to push out another book that I would enjoy? But I loved it. I love the way Aza’s mental illness was portrayed, in a way that didn’t romanticize it as other novels always seem to do. I love the way the relationships between characters function, and the way they have their ups and downs as no relationship is ever perfect. And I absolutely love the way in which everything comes together at the end from the title to the disappearance.
John Green has done it yet again, I definitely give it 5/5 stars.
