Product Description

Review

A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more (Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief)

Damn near genius . . . Simply devastating . . . Fearless in the face of powerful, uncomplicated, unironized emotion (TIME)

[on An Abundance of Katherines] Fully fun, challengingly complex and entirely entertaining (Kirkus Reviews)

I requested this collection for Christmas and thankfully got it, I read all of the books within a very short space of time however I wont forget their stories in a hurry. John Green is a literary hero, his books are filled with amazingly relatable characters each with different lives and situations. They will make you laugh and also cry and sometimes both at the same time! This is a must have for any YA or adult reader.

John Green's books are, in my opinion, a must read for not only Young Adult fans but all book fans, and all non-book fans for that matter.

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.

Each of these books is amazing. Seriously, I can't recommend them to anyone nearly enough. The writing style is engaging, creating characters that make you love them instantly. Then the book tears through you, making you feel the emotions fo the characters as they are dragged by circumstance or design through their life.

I bought this set for my daughter and she was so impressed. She said that the characters created by John Green were so magical and beautiful that she couldn't put down a single book. Each book is captivating and written beautifully and has given my daughter hours of reading. At first, I was debating on whether or not to buy the collection or a few individual John Green books, however now I am thrilled that I decided to buy this! I know that my daughter would have withdrawal symptoms if she hadn't read the other books by him. Captivating and beautiful. I'd recommend this set to anyone who loves to read!

The description clearly states "John Green - The Collection includes five novels from the critically acclaimed, best-selling master of modern storytelling, brought together for the first time." The box set only has four novels - it does not include the Will Grayson novel - poorly advertised!!

This is a really fantastic book - I could not put it down. It is a wonderful story for all ages, filled with meaning and humour.The writing is stylish and simple prompting unexpected laughter and sobs to well up from the heart at the most unusual points on our characters' travels. It was strongly recommended by my teenage daughter to me, her hovering mother, with the warning that I will need boxes of tissues before the night is out - she was right.

This is a very fun and easy collection of books to read, especially if you're just getting into reading. Johns writing style enticed me to continue to keep reading. It's not as if he's trying to show us how smart he is by using long winded words or words that most people would need to look up in the dictionary, he uses simple phrasing and writes the way I speak in real life.
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:
Will Grayson, Will Grayson,
Finding Alaska,
An Abundance of Katherine's,
The Fault In Our Stars (hyped up and overrated by teenage girls),
Paper Towns.

I'd never heard of John Green but my son mentioned him as being on his wish list. He is a very good writer and his stories are yearningly funny and poignant. Very American (the good parts, plus the ability to drive their own cars) teens facing some very tough experiences.
