The characters he creates are so unique and real, and no matter how much you hate them by principle you can't help but fall in love with them as they go through their struggles.
His books will make you laugh, cry and leave you in awe by the end, as the magnificently captivating nature of his writing is extremely rare, and I couldn't quickly find another author that competes.
The box set itself is very sturdy and good quality, as are the books themselves. The print quality is good and consistent, although Paper Towns is published by Bloomsbury whereas the others are published by Penguin (except Looking for Alaska, which is published by Hapercollins, but it's not really noticeably different), which means it has a different type of paper and the cover doesn't match as well with the others, but it doesn't really matter and I'm sure most normal people won't even notice.
I recommend this to literally anyone, whether you're a seasoned John Green fan or new to his work, and it will also make a great gift. Delivery and packaging were satisfactory, came on time and was in good condition, as expected.
The stories were rather good, some of the endings lacked in my opinion, but I enjoyed them overall; they all had very good comedy that worked well with the romance.
If the majority of the endings has been different I would have given his collection a solid 5, but since the ending to a book or story is very important to me I felt a slight twang of disappointment with the collection, but the overall story and characters made up for the lack of good endings.
My favourites in order are:

An Abundance of Katherine's,
The Fault In Our Stars (hyped up and overrated by teenage girls),
