I really like John Green. He is funny. He is nerdy. And he is someone that know there is something great about a geeky, literary, weird kids that can help make the world great.
With his brother Hank Green, they gave been doing a YouTube series twice a week (once each) where they comment on things for four minutes or less.
And although I like his books, I may actually be a bigger fan of the Vlogbrothers series and the nerdfighter community that has grown around them.
And I have read most of his books, usually on the first try. Although, I tried reading “The Fault in Our Stars” his most famous book several times I only got to around page 113 at most.
This week I flew through it. And I see why it is beloved by many.
As someone like most who has been touched by cancer it resonated with me. Of course, my dad, aunt and father in law were much, much older.
And young love is beautiful and often fleeting. Although usually not by death.
It’s a good book although maybe 4th for me for John Green, ahead of Looking for Alaska, but behind An Abundance of Katherines, Turtles All the Way Down and paper towns.
I also have to say I enjoyed reading it with an actual book not on Kindle.
And keep tissues handy.
