Turtles delivers a lesson that we so desperately need right now: Yes, it is okay not to be okay . . . John Green has crafted a dynamic novel that is deeply honest, sometimes painful, and always thoughtful, delivered with the characteristic charm the author is known for. John Green, welcome back. We missed you. (Mashable)
A thoughtful look at mental illness and a debilitating obsessive-compulsive disorder that doesn't ask but makes you feel the constant struggles of its main character . . . Turtles explores the definition of happy endings, whether love is a tragedy or a failure, and a universal lesson for us all: 'You work with what you have'. (USA Today)
A full-on emotional bleed-out . . . John Green hasn't created a book as much as he's created a place - a place to have your most indefinable and grotesque thoughts articulated, to ponder the disconnected reality you experience . . . No matter where you are on the spiral - and we're all somewhere - Green's novel makes the trip, either up or down, a less solitary experience. (The Globe and Mail)

If you read John Green on the cover! READ THE BOOK!
This book was a beautiful and quick read. I liked the way mental illness has been dealt with in the literature and how all the characters of the story are having their own take on Aza’s debilitating thoughts. I feel it is necessary for contemporary writers to talk about such issues in their books, to spread awareness among the young adults who often remain oblivious to their ill being. Being one who suffers anxiety, I could understand the hullabaloo spread across the pages of this book encapsulating Aza’s thoughts.
I couldn't catch the feeling. I couldn't relate to it.
it's a John Green book, so i was expecting some sort of romance only. i was left surprised when i finished the book because it focused on the main character and her struggles with mental heatlh majorly. not a lot of books do that. for the first time ever, the love interest was a subplot and it didn't overshadow the main plot - a 16-year-old's struggle with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
the writing was authentic and not pretentious at all. it was heartfelt and obviously there was that John Green charm to it.
so, go ahead and read it. it's not the best book ever, but it is a good book indeed.
