*ALASKA

Agreed, I didn't like her. I almost found the book to be relatable in the first few chapters (she seemed normal enough, not a bada** magic warrior person what I could never hope to be haha) but quickly she just started getting on my nerves.

Sorry for this late reply but did you think that some of John Green's books are overrated? That's just what I thought because of the whole tfios thing, some people just assume all his books are great and have an interesting plot.


message 20: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Alexander (shannonmariposa) | 26 comments Jeb from Splintered. He was so annoying, he didn't want to let Alyssa do anything. He kind of ruined the book for me.

I hated Adri and Pearl, too. They made me so mad! I hope something bad happens to them in the end.

I've only read Looking for Alaska (which was hugely overrated), but from my close friends I've heard he is overrated...


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Me neither. I thought Bella was way to Whitney in breaking dawn she finally got a backbone though

Sabrina (forebodinq) America Singer from The Selection series!

She just couldn't decide anything smart for herself :P
She just irritated me by how indecisive she was, as the solution to her problems just seemed so clear to me ahah

Oh yeah that bothered me how she had maxon around her finger then let him go then wanted him again

To be honest, I don't think John Green would be as popular as he is today if he wasn't a white male. I mean, there are so many female (and even male POC) authors that wrote way better stuff than him (and some are even popular on goodreads), but they barely get any attention from the media. In fact, the only time female authors get any attention from the media is when they write something that's bad (like Stephenie Meyer and E.L. James). I think that says something.


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Hmm I guess in a way your right but John Green already had a fan base before the fault in our stars from his vlog. They are actually funny videos I watch occasionally


message 31: by S (new)

S Jakes | 897 comments I think if he was really boring no one would care


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

If he was boring but yeah I see your point

True, but even when he only vlogged, he wasn't AS popular as he is now that people are praising his books. Admittedly, his original fanbase is definitely the majority of his readers, but he still didn't have as much fans on YouTube then as he does now that everyone on the street has heard about him. (Some of his vlogs are pretty funny, though. But even if he was boring, some people would probably still like him I guess. How many boring men do you know who are famous? There are a lot, I bet.)

Your comment has made me think. I think it is true that John Green is getting a lot of attention, and possibly some of it is due to him being a white male (but of course, we can't hold this against him as he can't control it lol). I also think a lot of it is due to vlogbrothers and the fact that TFIOS was made into a movie. It probably has a little to do with the content of TFIOS as well - being a contemporary romance it's taken a lot more seriously by the media than, say, paranormal books. Anyway, that's just what I think :)

Honestly could not stand her while I read the book, I was so glad that Pudge hurt her(I just now realized that I am kinda a mean person deep deep DEEP down inside)

Well when you think about it, she kinda just pops into the book

Wow that's a really interesting (and true) point Amee. Of course Suzanne Collins has been very successful. I feel like the YA genre as a whole is rejected in media outside of these few movies that are made.

@ Riya you're right about the rejection thing

Erin wrote: "Lara from looking for Alaska"

True, the book could have gone well even without her; I feel like she only existed for the romance subplot and was just wasted potential. Really, the only interesting thing about her is that she's Romanian and has an accent, and she wasn't presented as anything else besides the typical European immigrant who has an accent.

That's true! There are a lot of really successful female authors, but I still don't think they're praised as much. I don't recall mainstream publications crowning her, or Veronica Roth, or Marissa Meyer, or any other successful female author as the best YA author ever. Or maybe I haven't lived in the US for that long.
I feel like I'm throwing too much critical Tumblr stuff around here. I apologize. I'll stop analyzing the subject now.

I've heard a lot of bad things about Holden Caulfield in reviews (okay, maybe I spend too much time reading reviews on here for everything)and he sounds like the most annoying teenager ever who needs to go outside and sniff a flower or pet a puppy or something. And from what I got from reviews of Obsidian, I already feel like I can say I hate Daemon. But I can't because I haven't read it. But I'm pretty sure I would still hate him. (view spoiler)

Haha that's a good point. I also think there's an absence of diversity. Example: Marie Lu (AMAZING author) hasn't gotten nearly as much praise/recognition as other author and I have absolutely no idea why. Based on discussion threads, her books are just as loved (if not more) than The Hunger Games and Divergent. Also, they were shown in bookstores as much as the others (pre their movie releases of course). Yet she has a low number of ratings and a movie version might be released in 2016 (5 years after release), while it only took 2 years for Veronica Roth.

Yes marie lu need attention she is wonderful

Olivia (Olivia3Books) | 52 comments I love Marie Lu! The Legend Trilogy was AMAZING :D
