TFioS is perhaps the funniest sad book I have ever read. I alternated between hysterical laughing and uncontrollable sobbing over the course of this novel. There is very little I can say about it coherently other than the fact that I loved it — I was hugging the book upon completion — and that it is my favorite of Green’s. The characters in TFioS are still smart and sarcastic, a stable of Green’s protagonists, but I felt an ability to relate to them in a way I hadn’t since Pudge left in search of a great perhaps. If you haven’t read this one yet, you should.

Also, this one line: I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once. Perfection! I instantly added it to the list of quotes associated with the book on goodreads, something I’ve never done before. It is such a wonderful line and I had to share it.

Oh, oh, oh! And venn diagrams. This books has the best venn diagrams known to man. That is all.
