Hey Guys! This month I finished Turtles all the way down by John Green. This book has been on my TBR for ages and I was so happy to finally read it. It os a YA contemporary and I read this book from the 8th of August to the 18th of August. I had really high expectations for this book but ended up a little disappointed. I ended up giving this book 3 out of 5 stars. There is also a trigger warning since the main character as OCD and anxiety. ***Spoilers may be ahead***
I loved the main character, Aza. She has OCD and anxiety which are represented really well in this book. I did not like the Daisy who is Aza’s best friend. I found her really annoying and self-absorbed. She helps Aza with her OCD and anxiety but is writing about it behind her back and is acting as if she is such a good friend because she is putting up with it. Davis is a love interest in this story and his father is missing. I feel like his father being missing is suppose to be the main plot but the story focuses too much on the budding romance between Davis and Aza.
The writing style in this book is very similar to John Green’s other books. I found it very easy to read and was happy that it was written from one point of view. John Green did a great job of describing the mental illnesses that Aza is experiencing. However, I felt like there were a few chapters here and there that did not really need to be there. It did feel a little prolonged and dragged out.
