Top Customer Reviews
In case you didn't know he was a school teacher, maybe still is, and he started branching out into media and has very successfully ventured into the big time of several areas. It's quite a story and I'm sure there will be biographies written about John Green if there aren't already.
The boxed set has two signed copies, but I was disappointed at the quality of the boxed set, since it has a tear on it.
Luckily, Amazon is willing to replace it.
1. Looking for Alaska
2. The Fault in our Stars
3. An Abundance of Katherines
4. Paper Towns
Looking for Alaska was my favorite because of the emotional roller coaster that was involved. It seems raw and real.
The Fault in Our Stars has that same quality. I just liked the story of Looking for Alaska better. This book was also difficult for me to read since my mother passed away May 16, 2013 from cancer.
An Abundance of Katherines does not have that same quality of rawness that the previous 2 did. I did however love the footnotes that added to the comical and nerdy side of the book.
Lastly, Paper Towns, I did not feel that what happened in the book was plausible. That is the main reason for my ranking. The other reasons are that, compared to the other books and definitely compared to the first two on my list, this book seemed the most juvenile. It is indeed for Young Adult readers, but some of the other books had very grown up situations.
Firstly, the actual box of this box set is amazing and I could've read all of the different little quotes on it for ages, except, there were books inside. The books were hardcover and beautiful and there were signatures from John Green in Looking For Alaska and The Fault In Our Stars just as I'd expected.
The actual content of the books are amazing. It is an understatement to say the John Green has written 4 of possibly the best YA books of our time in LFA, TFIOS, An Abundance of Katerines and Paper Towns. The stories are so full of content and meaningful life lessons and hilarious dialogue that it is impossible not to compare these books to the best of the best of YA writing--like JK Rowling or Rick Riordan or Cath Crowley or Melina Marchetta. And just like these amazing authors, his books resonate to the reader and I can guarantee that these books will be loved.
The actual content of the stories in the books are so different, though, that it's sometimes to believe that it is the same author's writing. But you can bet that in every book you will cry, you will laugh, and you will absorb.
