I simply DEVOURED this. I really enjoyed John Green's book as a teenager but I grew out of them. This still holds a very clear John perspective while feeling like it targets a more mature audience - and I want his perspective on everything. I actually physically laughed out loud, cried a little, and learned a lot. Overall a really enjoyable reading experience.  

I give The Anthropocene Reviewed 5 stars.

This book pulled me out of my reading slump in the way that only the writing of John Green can do. 

I knew many of the stories from Vlogbrothers videos, and so, even without the audiobook, John was reading aloud to me in my head. 

This book made me cry laugh with lines like "But you do so much yoga!", and real laugh with lines like "I've read more books on Hamlet than parenting". 

The pandemic is still going, and I'm still huddled inside my house to keep myself and my community safe, but this book reminded me how to fall in love with the world. 

The wind is whipping around my house as a big weather front moves through, which is very common this time of year. But I can hear the kids next door squealing in delight as they play in their backyard, and I'm grateful for a connection to the wider world. 

I give The Anthropocene Reviewed five stars.

I loved this book more than I can say. It's so unique and I honestly think almost anyone could love it; it's probably the only John Green book I will unreservedly recommend to anyone, regardless of their interests.

I've listened to every episode of the podcast The Anthropocene Reviewed, meaning I had kind of already read a great deal of this book before it came out. I do have to admit that I think some of the really impactful moments in these essays are more impactful when you hear them read aloud by John; however, they don't lose much in their written form, and he has gone back and added quite a bit too.

I also really love the mini reviews he has for things like back page book ads and the font used in the book. They gave me so much delight to notice.

You already know this, but I give The Anthropocene Reviewed five stars.
