    I love John Green, but I feel like the only 13 year old who does! Is there anyone else out there? I read The Fault in Our Stars and I decided right then and there that I would stalk him this summer and yell at him for what happened to Augustus. Nevertheless, he is awesome and I would love to meet him one day.

    I’m just going to talk about these all at once (Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Paper Towns. The Fault in Our Stars. An Abundance of Katherines.), since I read them all in the span of about a week…. Let me set the scene. I read “Looking for Alaska” a while ago, and after I read and dug it, I bought the rest of his books for my kindle almost immediately. Of these four, I started with TFiOS. I thought to myself, “It’s about 8pm on a Saturday night, Hubby is hunkered down playing videogames, I might as I’m just going to talk about these all at once (Will Grayson, Will Grayson.

I thought to myself, “It’s about 8pm on a Saturday night, Hubby is hunkered down playing videogames, I might as well start a new book.” This was either the best thing or the worst thing I have ever done. I read TFiOS in one sitting, from 8pm to after 4am. Hubby kept looking over at me when I had a steady stream of tears and snot coming down my face, sniffling loudly (it sounded like this: *snooooorrrrrkkkkkkkkkk*) and blowing my nose with the Chipotle napkins left from dinner since I didn’t want to step out of the story to go get actual tissues. I was a hot mess. A. Hot. Mess. Getting out of bed for Sunday lunch with my parents was not fun for either of us. I haven’t cried like that in a long, long time… since March 15, 2009, actually. It was a real catharsis, one that I didn’t know I needed. I powered through the other three very quickly, and I enjoyed them a lot. I didn’t have as visceral of a reaction to them as I did to TFiOS, but I dug them. All four are highly recommended, but TFiOS most of all… though not on a work or school night… :)

    I bought this because of Katherines and Paper Towns (+the box which I thought to be a cushioned container instead of a cardboard) So now I have multiple hardcovers of TFiOS and Alaska, but the cover in each book was different. The Boxed-TFiOS has a "NYTimes Bestseller" mark which I hate because it's already a book to recommend to friends (OR NOT!) so why put that infront, could have been at the back. Then the Boxed-Alaska cover doesn't have a candle, just a smoke; and John Green's name was bigger I bought this because of Katherines and Paper Towns (+the box which I thought to be a cushioned container instead of a cardboard) So now I have multiple hardcovers of TFiOS and Alaska, but the cover in each book was different.

Then the Boxed-Alaska cover doesn't have a candle, just a smoke; and John Green's name was bigger at the spine both on the dust cover and the actual spine. Also, the first three books have an engraved colorless signature, unfortunately it's not that he really sign those three. And why the hell did he leave out TFiOS without an engraving? That is so unfair. And also, each book has a different color on their first and last page. Like the useless page, the it's colored. I liked it actually. Then lastly, I promise, Katherines and Paper Towns here have a new cover design on a hardcover. The one designed by a nerdfighter and the one with a red pin, consecutively. Buy it if you haven't read any john green book yet, or you really like the box. I'm sick while writing this so do not be a grammarian please haha

    "The Fault in Our Stars" -- Although this book was sad/melancholy (how could a book about teens with cancer not be), it was also a book about life and love (love between parents & child, between friends, new love, and "star-crossed" love). The characters were engaging.

    First review, this might be bad x) All of John Green's books are great, in my opinion. I've always found him to be one of the more constant authors out there, and one of my favorites. But I've also seen constant patterns in his books. Examples: a broken-down car and a "psychopathic" type of driver. An extremely hot, sexy girl (or boy, in the case of TFiOS). Sometimes it gets a bit tiring to read the same type of book over and over again, but with John Green, even though his books have many simila First review, this might be bad x) All of John Green's books are great, in my opinion.

Sometimes it gets a bit tiring to read the same type of book over and over again, but with John Green, even though his books have many similarities, each of them is also unique in each of their different ways. It is these factors that make me enjoy his books more than authors who have recurring themes in their books. And that concludes my slight failure of a review, as I am off to do homework!

    One of the best authors for young adults out there today, in my humble opinion. Every time I recommend one of his books to my high school readers, they come back amazed and ready for more of his stories. I have read all of the titles in this boxed set. The Fault in Our Stars is my current favorite. It is a story adults would also enjoy!

    I only just finished Fault of the Stars..cried constantly...wondering if this is the lived experience older teenagers gave when dealing /cancer... it all felt authentic..a well written book...but challenges the emotion.

    If you have a chance to get this box set, it's quite worth it. Shop around a little, read all the seller's descriptions VERY carefully, and write down how they advertised it (so if you don't get what they SAID they'd sell you you can reference their words back to them when you write back and ask why they didn't honor their ad.)

Amazon has very good support so, quite worth the effort to find a good offer. :) And these are REALLY well written books. Parents, if you have children that you want to read books that will inspire them to look beyond the surface-- learn to feel empathy for other people-- think about higher issues, like life after death, what is it like when a teenager gets cancer? Can a teen who has cancer who falls in love with their true love experience a piece of their 'infinity'--Now-- as a young person? Can they seek fulfillment, and purpose in the short time they have? Do we always know why we love someone? Is our idea of why we love them always right? If you think these are GOOD QUESTIONS for your kids to be asking themselves (I sure as heck do)-- buy this set, or get these books from the library. John Green writes about who Teenagers are. He also has a Vlog series on the web with his brother where they talk to each other, and answer fan questions: www.youtube.com/user/vlogbrothers , an educational series, www.youtube.com/user/crashcourse‎ he often hosts Mental Floss, a Youtube show that gives odd, but useful information: www.youtube.com/user/MentalFlossVideo‎ Last I looked, Mr. Green had 5 out of the New York Times, Best Sellers List, Young Adult Hard Cover Books. Would I want my child exposed to John Green? Well, only if I want them to model themselves after someone who is funny, open minded, extremely intelligent, honestly likes young people and respects them and WANTS them to learn and respect themselves. So, oh.. yes please! My girls can watch both the Green brother's videos and read John Green's books all they want.

    John Green is a powerhouse writer and one of the best in YA. He manages to create realistic stories with both humour and heart. The characters are authentic and the humour comes naturally. My favourite book of his is The Fault in Our Stars. It is a near perfect book and will remain iconic in YA for generations to come. My second favourite is An Abundance of Katherines. It has a weird blurb but it is a hilarious story. I found myself laughing aloud dozens of times while reading this novel. Paper John Green is a powerhouse writer and one of the best in YA.

Looking for Alaska, while my least favourite of his works is still very good. The reason Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns are my least favourites is because I find the main female characters (Alaska and Margo) annoying. Although this is arguably the point of both novels (to break down the illusion of the manic pixie dream girl) it decreased my enjoyment of the novel. Having said that they are both 4 star books and definitely worth reading. A John Green novel is a must read and guaranteed to be excellent.

    ( review for Looking for Alaska ) Miles best known as “ Pudge” attends Culver Creek a boarding school his father attended. He was very closed and shy until he meets Colonel, his roommate and the mysterious Alaska. “Pudge” hasn’t been big on taking a risk , that is until he opened up to these amazing people in his life, his life changes for the better and he learns a deal about how truly precious life can be.

I gave it three stars because the beginning was well done and the idea was interesting.

    John Green has got to be one of the world's best artist. He creates a character that has a kind of intelligence that readers love to indulge. And of course, the girl of the book, has to be quite mysterious and have a quirky intelligence that intrigues both the reader and the male character. Green himself, is a interesting person. The books all include a different kind of trigger that makes you want to know MORE. It makes you read 'between the lines', and makes you think of the deeper meaning.

    John green is by far my favorite author. he inspires me tremendously and with everything he writes, it's like I feel like he understands me and just life. the way he writes is so true and real and his books are so good that I'm selfish when it comes to sharing them with other people. it's like I want to be the only one to read them because I want to be the only connected to them, even though so many young adults love them.

The novel is particularly enlightening on the topics of childhood trauma and mental health, touching on many important issues that continue to affect the minds and lives of teenagers. As Green’s first published novel, Looking for Alaska won the Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in young adult literature and claimed the title of New York Times Bestseller. Since Looking for Alaska, Green has put out other bestsellers, including but not limited to Turtles All the Way Down and his most popular novel, The Fault in our Stars. Looking for Alaska brings awareness to the struggles facing today’s youth through an entertaining yet heart wrenching story that I recommend for everyone. As the new kid at Culver Creek boarding school, Miles Halter (referred to as Pudge by his new friends) does not know the adventure he is about to find himself on when his new roommate, Chip (the Colonel), introduces him to Alaska. Miles is immediately enthralled by her, wondering if she could be part of the “Great Perhaps” he came to Culver Creek seeking. Miles and his friends have fun pulling pranks and going against the rules, and it is evident that they all, more prominently Alaska, have mental health issues. On one occasion, Miles notices that Alaska finishes her cigarette quickly. When asked about it, Alaska responds, “Y’all smoke to enjoy it. I smoke to die” (Green 44). While this is taken as a joke in the moment, the kids later come to question the sincerity of the statement. After Alaska is killed in a car crash due to her drunk driving halfway, Miles and Chip wonder whether the accident was really an accident or a suicide. The rest of the book recounts how the kids react to Alaska’s death, through blaming themselves, arguing with each other, and replaying the night in their heads to try to figure out what was going through Alaska’s. Looking for Alaska is a book I would recommend to anyone who is interested in a sad, coming of age story or looking to learn about mental health in teenagers through fictional characters. While the book is enjoyable and enlightening, there were a few things that personally I did not like. Taking into account that the novel was published in 2005, I do not think Green writes some social aspects of teenagers’ lives realistically. For instance, there is one occasion in the book where the kids are freestyle rapping, which is not something that normally happens, and the lyrics were obviously not written by a teen. In addition, in my opinion, the title is misleading and not totally clarified in the novel. While it’s an interesting twist that “Alaska” is the name of a character and not referring to the state, the kids are never really looking for her, so the story is not what I was expecting based on the title. However, these are just two negatives that I noticed in the entirety of the novel, and they are outweighed by the many positives. Green does an exceptional job of making the characters relatable and entertaining and the story profound. This novel is great for anyone, specifically those interested in young adult novels and enjoy other works of Green’s. Looking for Alaska provokes deep thoughts and leaves the reader pensive.

    All of John Green's books will forever have a special place in my heart and I do not think I could ever really pick a favorite. I love his writing style as it makes the characters and the situations they are living in feel so very real. His characters are perfectly imperfect and I feel like I can relate to them all. If John Green writes a book I am guaranteed to read it. All of John Green's books will forever have a special place in my heart and I do not think I could ever really pick a favorite.
