I could hear John's voice in my head while reading this book. Simultaneously sad and anxious and hopeful, it felt very comforting to me; exactly what I needed right now. Medium-paced most of the time, but also slow-paced, on occasion.

Probably like others before me, I give the Anthropocene Reviewed five stars.

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.

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.
