Product description

Review

Fun and full of truth. To be honest, I'm a little irritated at how good the book is. I don't need this kind of competition (Patrick Rothfuss, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Kingkiller Chronicles)

An undeniably strange and delightful thing (V.E. Schwab)

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is such a beautiful exploration of what humans can accomplish when we collaborate effectively. (John Green, bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars)

[Green's] writing is light-hearted, clever, resonating and funny, tackling socially relevant themes, including the darker side of social media, sexuality, the naivety of youth and media representation . . . Get ready to be absorbed in the story, glued to the book and a little more afraid of Twitter (Stylist)

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is perhaps most like a cheerier John Wyndham: a first contact story that, rather than dwelling too much on why aliens have arrived, focuses on how humans react. (GUARDIAN)

Funny, thrilling, and an absolute blast to read. I knew Hank would be good at this, but I didn't know he would be this good on the first try (John Scalzi)

A fun, contemporary adventure that cares about who we are as humans, especially when faced with remarkable events. (Kirkus (starred review))

By turns joyful, devastating, personal, zeitgeisty, modern, classic, fast-paced, and thoughtful, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing blew me away with its fresh take on first contact in this fragile, ever-connected world we live in. Quick but never shallow, it will stand as a snapshot of an era as well as just a darn good read (Catherynne M. Valente)

You're about to meet somebody named April May who you're immediately going to want to be best friends with. And bonus, she spends all her time having incredible adventures with giant robots and dream puzzles and accidental Internet fame. An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is pure book-joy (Lev Grossman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Magicians Trilogy)

This is the book my teen self would have loved, and my adult self immediately obsessed over. I turned the pages of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing so quickly the pads of my thumbs were worn smooth by the time I finished it. It provokes the mind, tickles the spirit, and April May is the terribly relevant young protagonist we've been waiting for (Ashley C. Ford)

Book Description

In his much-anticipated debut novel, Hank Green - co-creator of Crash Course, Vlogbrothers and SciShow - spins a sweeping, cinematic tale about a young woman who becomes an overnight celebrity before realizing she's part of something bigger, and stranger, than anyone could have possibly imagined.
