(Book Review) Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

Author:- John Green

Book length :- 304

Genre:- Y/A, contemperory

VERDICT:- 3/5 (This here is a rough judgement .The verdict could be change in between the review after a thorough analysis of it’s cons and pros.)

We never really talked much or even looked at each other, but it didn’t matter because we were looking at the same sky together, which is maybe even more intimate than eye contact anyway. I mean, anybody can look at you. It’s quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see

Overview:-

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,

Book Review:-

This here is a perfectly balanced book, having some cracks which makes the book to not to be remembered for a long run.This is perfectly fine but there’s nothing unique and outstanding here which makes the book ”ordinary”.

I think mostly John Green’s protagonist are teenagers as there are many complex things going on in this age but I also say it is simply and easily explianed in John Green’s writing. Teenage characters are so confusing as there’s so much going on in a diminished time period .But for writers it is easy to find conflict(s) part for teenage characters of book.Younger the protagonist ,greater the conflict.

I think that is why the book is simple and easy to grasp the feelings of writer through ”The Protagonist” . Turtles All The Way Down expresses the way of a teenage girl having issues with her love life..and pressure of carrier …her future ….her friendship….everything in her life which is miserable.

And why not,Its her teens.

Writer makes the readers to enjoy these miserable situations of teen through the eyes of Aza.There are many situations to face and many decisions to make just like one has to make in his/ her teenage.But for every book there are some points where the writer is not consistant.

We will discuss the down points later as they are adinfinitum small with the adinfinatum large effectiveness of Turtles All The Way Down. There are many places that made me think that ‘ she ‘ is ‘ me ‘ .
There are many situations that I recall from my extreme teenhood while reading this book.I am not saying that the incidenses are same but the way she felts is like the way I could’ve felt in that situations.
This made me to connected with the characters.I am not saying that its like Catcher In The Rye…but still.

It is a good book to read and re-radable.The book like this made you to remember it throughout your life, like for me I will recall this book as – I’ve read it when….
and -I’ve remember the same situations as this book called Turtles All The Way Down…-I’ve remember it reading it in summer of 2018.

The writing is really simple as seventeen year old girl’s.
The writing is simple yet effective .
The metaphors .If you’ve read John Green, you know what I am going to say.They are simple ,undestandable and for Green’s they are ”balanced”.In Green’s writing ,the metaphors suddenly splashes million of colors in your eyes and taste on your tongue.They were perfectly timid and just in perfect amount to grasp the true meaning and and meanings within meaning. They were calculated and fitted perfectly .

The intrigue level is very high that anyone even touches the book going to read fully through single day(4-5 hours(its kimd of short too)).

There’s only two things bugs me in this and I am mentioning it after going through a brutal fight with my mind .

You’re both the fire and the water that extinguishes it. You’re the narrator, the protagonist, and the sidekick. You’re the storyteller and the story told. You are somebody’s something, but you are also your you.

  1. The con in this book that some of the things are un-nesseassary.That like there are some of conversation like between Aza and Davis that are not promtly fits. Like the ”supermassive black hole”stuff and the ”star wars” fandom.I personally feels that they are pushed into the plot…I just think Writer wants to push every key factor into this that which are geeky cult and hugely popular. These two things are like bragging about the knowledge …they are not apt to the teenage view.But I am saying it again that these do not affect your reading and not helps you to judge the book.As I mentioned above I ‘find’ these cons afterall I am a critic.

2. There’s sudden plot twist which is a neither ”sudden” nor a ”real plot twist”’ .I am huge believer in plot twist but for this book the plot twis not required and if there’s aneed then its very weak and not effective.

In the end I would like to say the golden words about John Green’s Turtle All The Way Down:-

This book require a cool and calm mind which is also the proved stress buster if you read books like ‘AMERICAN GODS’ by Neil Gaiman which gave me a headache for two days(the review link of ‘American Gods’ is down below in the description section).

This is perfect example of contemperory novel which includes modern teen life situations. I highly recommend Turtles All The Way Down for those who wanted to feel good and for the readers who are going through ”reading slumps”.

If you are seeking enjoyment/entertainment then you should give Turtles All The Down a try without thinking twice .I recommend this for especially Non-Readers as this book has very best binding energy,Intrigue level. For READERS is really balanced but they can’t enjoy it fully as the story is short and makes a Readers want more(atleast I wanted it more).I think this point is either a Con or Pro ,so I simply make it as a another point to ponder.

  • For lastly ,Turtles All The Way Down is a perfect example of a balance between the Characters,Writing,Plot,Conflict(s) and obviously Enjoyment.

Finally I’d like to give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Upto scale of 10,I’d like to give this 6.5/10 stars.

(Book Review)Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Hey again everyone!Today I am here for the book review of Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo.

Title:- Crooked Kingdom

Author:- Leigh Bardugo

Genres:-Fantasy,Y/A

Book length:-536

Synopsis:-

Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of the Grisha world.

Source :Goodreads

VERDICT:- 3/5 (recommended to read full post as I don’t blog in conventional way .The final verdict can be anywhere…)


PLEASE DON’T LEAVE THE PAGE BY JUST SEEING THE VERDICT.SOMETIMES I WILL BE CONTRIDICTORY.Afterall I am just a human.(untill now !who knows ,what I’ll be when I evolve)

So sit back ,relax ,and enjoy the veiws .I hope you’ll find my reviews entertaining and sometimes I collide with your visions on the book.And trut me its good to know that you are not alone having same views.

SO PUT YOUR SENSE-OF-HUMOUR -GLASSES -ON .


REVIEW:-

Again today I try to cover this book in every aspect . Tried.

I would have come for you. And if I couldn’t walk, I’d crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we’d fight our way out together-knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting.

Characters:-

The characters are same as its in previous part Six Of Crows. But the depth of the characters are more astounding and vivid .As expected by Leigh Bardugo.The story revolved around the six characters and you can differentiate the voices of each one of them.This makes the book fast pase. I must say the writing of characters and developing them are the most difficult thing to do in writing.But Leigh just done it so easily that no one can forget any of the six characters.They are like in It .The characters stays with you through out the story as well as through out your life(worthless, if you hate reading).And here it goes. I just compared the characters to Stephen King’s characters developement who is the best character producer and makes them imortal.By this you can get the idea of characters creation by Leigh.You can have favorite but for every one it will be different.As you are choosing from the six best written characters.

Atmosphere:-

The book sets in Fantasy world of Geisha,who are suppose to be healer through magic.But there’s a compound which makes them to be something like Faulty and makes them insane.This is the book’s one of the purpose.There are basically Six purposses in this book and no one clashes with each other but binded by each other and makes the reader to emerse groundly with it to know about each and every purpose to fullfill.

As you guessed by this.The book gives very magical and curious feeling .The writing and clear characters makes the book easy to grasp and the again every thing is happening in front of your eyes ,in your room.You don’t really remember like you are reading and this makes the book to hold you.




Writing:-

The writing pattern is same as the SIX OF CROWS.

  • THERE IS INDIVIDUAL CHAPTERS FOR EACH AND EVERY CHARACTER.
  • THERE IS NO CONFUSION IN POINTING OUT THE CHARACTERS AND THE SCENARIO.
  • THERE’S VOICES ASSOCIATED WITH EVERY CHARACTER…LIKE IN IT by STEPHEN KING .
  • THE WORLD OF GRISHA IS WELL KNOWN BUT ITS BEST DESCRIBED IN THIS DUALOGY.
  • THERE IS STABILITY IN MAGIC POWERS.THEY ARE NOT VERY IMPORTANT YET CRUTIAL .

PLOT:-

The plot is very much covered in the six of crows reviews.As it’s a conclussion part for SoC.I am not saying that it just have the conclussion but its mostly is.As there’s something happens in the end part of six of crows and for that this book takes place.This six of them again plots a masterplan and fails and by failing you could get the idea if you are familiar with Leigh’s writing.This is here a master stroke of plot twist.But there’s a flaw in this part by plot twist I did’nt satisfied as the six of crows plot twist(s).In the end the plot is so badass and unique in its own as metaphorically like Harry Potter.Genuine writing and You did’nt read something like this .Atleast I did’nt.

If you know the plot and story like this please share and suggest me in the comments below.I really needed books and story like this .It’ll be nice if they are really limited logies.

(I also don’t think its a word )

By logies I mean dualogy or trilogy.

I hope I get many suggestions…
