In theory, reading a sampler of four books is awesome.
In reality, I forgot about the harsh reality of being a obsessive reader who must finish ALL THE THINGS.

It really bugs my noodle when I start books that hook me and then can't finish them at my leisure. So now of course I must add four more good books to my growing to read list while I figure out a way to procure them. *shakes fist at John Green*

My only teensy gripe with TFIOS is that it's from a teen girl's POV but her internal monologue is
I have already read all of the full versions of the books before so I already knew they were good. Despite that I still thought that the samples were good enough to make me want to read the books again.
More than hoped for

As someone who is usually pretty leary of books that seem to explode and get praised by everyone, John Green fell right into that category for me. This sampler was a great (read "free") way for me to decide whether or not to deem him, and his novels, worthy of my bookshelves. Searching for Alaska, Paper Towns, and (of course) The Fault in Our Stars were the best--or most likely to be--in my humble opinion. Excerpts were long enough to give a real sense of character and draw a
Glad I read the first few chapters of TFiOS first. That book seems like it will be great, and I purchased it after reading the preview. The other 3 books, not so much.

It's a cute little sampler. Grabbed one for me (even though I own all of his books) and my younger sister who has a short attention span. So these short little excerpts are great for her! ;P

It was intriguing to read the first chapters of these novels. John Green seems like a good author, but I still haven't read anything by him. This almost made me want to.
An overall great sampler that inspired me and got me hooked on Green's quirky masterpieces, it's definitely a must-have!

Great for people who want to read a book by John Green but can't decide which one yet. Also, free on iBooks.
First couple chapters of a bunch of John Green books, of course it's good.
A great way to get a glimpse into the wonderful world of John Green's writing.
