it was amazing

I just finished listening to this for the second time and it's a book that if I were sixteen I would read again and again and again. How can John Green be so human? How can he communicate vulnerability and humor and youth and character and struggle and smartness and philosophy so entertainingly? My one complaint is how unlikely it is that the relationships in John Green books are always so unrealistically strong, but as Stephanie Lindqvist said, sometimes it's nice to read books about nice people.

I love that Gus loves Hazel because she is a person who "notices" the universe -- not just because she notices and reflects Gus, but because she helps him reflect. She's the one thing that pulls him up and challenges his own omnipotence, and she does it with a powerful presence.

Of course, I am completely in love with Gus myself.

Thanks for this book, John Green! Thanks!
