A wrenching and revelatory novel. – The New York Times

Green finds the language to describe the indescribable. . . . A must-read for those struggling with mental illness, or for their friends and family.” —San Francisco Chronicle

#1 New York Times Bestseller • #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller • #1 International Bestseller • USA Today Bestseller

It’s quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.
   
Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. 
 
In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.
John Green is the award-winning, #1 bestselling author of Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with David Levithan), and The Fault in Our Stars. His many accolades include the Printz Medal, a Printz Honor, and the Edgar Award. John has twice been a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize...

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular I can't quite explain how great this book is. I wasn't sure what it would be about when I started it, how it fit into the kinds of stories John Green likes to write. But the way he tells Aza's story and how she lives with her illness is raw and real and something that I haven't encountered before. Though moments had me stressed out, the ending left me feeling all-around hopeful and content in the best, purest way. Definitely a great read in my opinion!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Turtles All the Way Down by John Green I was pretty skeptical going into this because John Green's books have been pretty hit-or-miss for me in the past. When John Green’s books first came out I absolutely loved them, but I’ve aged since and I was worried that his writing and the things he writes about wouldn’t interest me anymore and that I’d outgrown him. Thankfully that wasn’t the case,I finished it in three days or less. Thats something that hasnt happened yet this year. I’m going to start this off with why it didn’t get 5 stars and that is for one reason which is the romance – for me I just felt like it wasn’t needed very much, I understand why it was in there but I felt like it didn’t need to be, this book for me would have been better without it, but oh well!This is a brave, bold move by John Green who blew this one out of the water in terms of its portrayal of mental illness. I thought Aza's struggles with mental illness were so well written. There were times where it made me uncomfortable, there were times when it made me sad, especially when Aza feels like she is a liability to those she loves ☹and I was able to empathize with her despite not understanding her struggles on a personal level. It was funny and sweet and basically all the emotions you expect from a YA contemporary.He doesn’t sugar coat something, you aren’t going to wake up one day and everything will be okay and you will be “normal”. It’s a lifelong struggle but this book allows you to see that you aren’t alone. Plot There are two plots happening simultaneously really, one internally and one externally. You think you're following the one and then it turns out the other is the central focus. The way the two were interwoven was genius. Overall Finally, I am thankful for this representation of mental health. It is ugly, sad, disturbing, frustrating, but not hopeless. It isn’t everything (even though sometimes it is) and it’s honest. I am so happy, so unbelievably happy, that kids and teenagers and also adults will have this. That they will read it and feel understood, or empathize, or both. You know how we always want books to “make us better people”? To “show us new perspectives we couldn’t imagine”? You can tell he is writing about something he's extremely familiar with. Pick up Turtles All The Way Down. I can't wait to see what he comes out with next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Awesome Read! This was the first John Green book that I read and I loved it! his writing style and character development is to die for. However, I personally didn't like the ending.
Date published: 2018-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This was so good and so unexpected. After reading the synopsis I was a little confused as to what this book would really be about. Aza struggles with anxiety and OCD and this is largely what the book focuses on. At times I felt anxious and panicky while reading this so I understand how it can be triggering for people who struggle with anxiety and OCD. I liked how the ending wasn't perfect and I liked how Aza doesn't just "get better" at the end, it acknowledges that some days will be better than others and it's something that Aza is always going to be dealing with. “Your now is not your forever.”

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Book With Good Perspective I really wanted to love this book as much as I had loved all of John Green's other books. I found this one a lot easier to put down and forget about unlike many of his other novels. The book was filled with good perspective, and I found some of Aza's anxiety ticks much similar to my own. The book however, lacked much to look forward to. The story was a bit slow, and I found the relationships between characters hard to appreciate as there wasn't much back story to go off of. All and all, a good read, but nothing to write home about.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Less Than What I Had Expected I think my expectations were too high going in... it just wasn't as good as people were promising, in my opinion.
Date published: 2018-01-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't resonate Pretty underwhelming to say the least. I wasn’t a big fan of any of the characters, especially Aza. Some of her anxieties rang true and she was somewhat relatable, albeit annoying. I didn’t buy the relationship between Aza and Davis and found even the friendship with Daisy to be a bit dry. It bugged me a little to read just how much freedom these high school kids had - their own cars, running off to Applebee’s at the drop of a hat, etc. There were things I did enjoy but I’m just being a crab.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am so glad that I have read this novel. John Green definitely does not disappoint. In this novel, he brings to life the real struggles of mental illness and how it affects people. Not just the person with the illness, but literally everyone around them. He does not romanticize it or sugar coat it so the readers can try to understand. He simply tells it how it is which is so great because it gives the readers a real look at what some of those struggles are, whether or not they fully understand it. He does not explain it for them to understand, and I think this just how it works in real life. If you want to truly understand the ins and outs then you would have to do your own separate research (which in my personal opinion I believe everyone should do whether they read the book or not). Mental illnesses are so intricate and so complicating just as many other illnesses are whether mental or physical or psychological. And just as with any illness, you can never truly know why you catch it or develop it or in what ways it will affect you until you are the person that gets it yourself. This book is a perfect example of how it is like when people or for people who struggle with mental illnesses. What I truly like about this book as well is that it does not only focus on mental illness. It has so many topics in it as well such as the following: Family - It shows how family members can try understanding and helping the people the love who are struggling. Friendship - It shows that you can find friends who will love you for you whether or not you are still in the process of figuring out how to love yourself. Love - There is a love connection in this story which is hot predictable at all which is why I love this story that much more (I will not say more about this because I do not want to spoil). Loss - There are people in this story who are going through the struggle of loosing people close to them. In the main characters case, she is going through a process of trying to find herself since she feels kind of lost herself. Drama - There is drama is this novel as well, such as arguments and trying to find missing people..whether that be someone else and/or yourself. Mystery - The mystery in this story is that there is an actual person who is physically missing (not metaphorically like I stated in the point above) and you find yourself trying to solve where he could be and why before the book reveals it. You literally get a piece of everything when reading this story and it touches almost every aspect of your emotions whether that be happiness for when something good happens, or sadness for when the story doesn't quite go exactly in the same direction as how you wanted. Either way, it will have you feeling so many feels and it will make you want the book to not have an ending to it, so you can keep on reading. The way the author writes is exquisite. This novel is definitely a must read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Underwhelmed I recently read this book for 2 reasons, one being that I LOVE John Green and the other being that it was our book club pick for the month. I was very disappointed with this book, it took several chapters to catch my attention and found it sort of lack luster. I did love the realistic insight on mental health, and think that a lot of people suffering with anxiety and other mental health issues can relate. However, I had very high expectations for this book and in John Green's writing ability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Realistic After the Fault In Our Stars, I never found John Green's stories or writing appealing, because it seemed so basic and predictable. I decided to take a chance and read Turtles All The Way Down, and I was shocked. His depiction of mental illness strays away from the cliche and romanticized version that is so hard to escape these days. The story itself wasn't too thrilling, but entertaining nonetheless. Well done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new American Classic Story review: Turtles All the Way Down is the story of Aza Holmes a teenager living with obsessive compulsive disorder and her interactions with her mother, best friend, and others. Further complicating her life is her investigation into a missing billionaire. John Green brings his superb wit, humor and vulnerability to this work. In his own blog and press leading to publication he has talked about his own journey with mental illness and the writing does an excellent job painting the picture to those who don't share the same struggles. Adding to this, is an imperfectly revealed mystery and very realistic character interactions. The climax of the novel begins a spiral of events showing the very real side of Aza's fears. I can't go into detail without spoiling the uninitiated here, suffice to say, especially in audio, I was rocked. Mr. Green's love of quotes is in usual form and was perhaps a stretch, even for straight A teenagers. The inclusion of a billionaire to the story, while not a full Deus Ex Machina, also seems a little off, and perhaps Mr. Green's nod to The Great Gatsby. Perhaps the missing, or at least incomplete piece, was the ending. The book performs a wonderful routine on this balance beam, but seems to step-out of the landing in it's rush. That said, I've heard reviewers talk about this book as a potential new modern classic. With it's unashamed look inside mental illness I could see a lot of worthwhile mileage for young minds reading about characters they identify with, to begin to foster an understanding of mental health. *** 4/5 *** Audio review: Kate Rudd is amazing, turning this reading without music or sound effects into a powerful one-woman show worthy of Broadway! Characters are crisp, distinctive and easily recognized. Aza's struggles with mental illness and her internal monologues are powerful and portrayed beautifully, BRAVO! *** 5/5 ***

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Touching story of mental illness struggle This was a great book. I would definitely reccomend it, as it is a great book to understand and deal with mental illness, and is generally a very good book with compelling, real, vulnerable characters. Though the general premise of this book is about a teenager trying to find a fugitive millionaire, it is so much more. It is a book about human relations, and identity and mental illness. The internal monologue felt very familiar, and the book touched me on a very personal level, making it just a little more bearable to look my own mental illness in the face. This book, for me personally, was not the easiest read, because of how real it felt, but i enjoyed and appreciated it enormously, and it did have a positive influence on me. The subject matter is not always easy, especially if you've been dealing with some of the issues Aza has, and i feel like this is one of the more mature john green books (not in a sexual way, but a deeper psychological one). Great book, would definitely recommend it as a must read!
