4.5

Green's wittiness and lyricism are even more evident in essay form than in narrative. And there are as many funny, wacky facts in this book as you would expect from a celebrity nerd. Green's books always leave me feeling a little more hopeful.
My only criticisms are that for a book that claims to review the Anthropocene it is obscenely American in perspective (despite a couple of essays being on non-American topics/stories); and that, if you've followed John Green for a few years, even if you don't listen to the Anthropocene podcast, a lot of these stories will be at least familiar to your ears.

5.0

i laughed. i cried. i felt like when you spend five hours having deep conversation with a good friend, come home happy and exhausted, and collapse on the couch to take a nap. this was so special and personal and my heart feels like it cracked open a bit.
