“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”
This is the third book I read by John Green and I am still convinced he is very over-rated. After finishing the second book by him, I decided that his style is just not for me and that I won’t be reading his other books. But a friend of mine loves this book so dearly and I keep seeing it in all the libraries so I had to read it to shut up that voice in my brain that wants more!!
That being said, I think it is the best book I read by the author! The writing is easy to follow and it has the usual nerdy style of Green! What I didn’t like is that it told rather than showed more than once and that the characters acted way more than their age and were precocious!
The characters are not bad, I felt quite manipulated while reading the whole thing and I couldn’t have the connection that I was supposed to have with them which meant that it did not break my heart and make me cry rivers as I wanted to. When certain things happen in novels, you know you are supposed to feel something but I just didn’t!
The plot is okay, I guess that I would have enjoyed it way more if I read it in 2012 when it was released but I could see things from the beginning with the foreshadowing so I also was not impressed by the plot line.
“The world is not a wish-granting factory.”
Summary: The book is okay, I kind of understand the hype but still think it is over-rated. The message is good but the book was not the best technique wise! I think this is where we finally say good bye to the author’s books!
