Turtles All the Way Down

(3)
"A wrenching and revelatory novel." - The New York Times
"Green finds the language to describe the indescribable. . . . A must-read for those struggling with mental illness, or for their friends and family." -San Francisco Chronicle
#1 New York Times Bestseller - #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller - #1 International Bestseller - USA Today Bestseller
It's quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.
Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there's a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett's son, Davis.
Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza's story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.

"This novel is by far [Green's] most difficult to read. It's also his most astonishing. . . . So surprising and moving and true that I became completely unstrung. . . . One needn't be suffering like Aza to identify with it. One need only be human."-The New York Times
"A tender story about learning to cope when the world feels out of control." - People
"A powerful tale for teens (and adults) about anxiety, love and friendship." -The Los Angeles Times
"Turtles delivers a lesson that we so desperately need right now: Yes, it is okay not to be okay.... John Green has crafted a dynamic novel that is deeply honest, sometimes painful, and always thoughtful." - Mashable
"Green does more than write about; he endeavours to write inside.... No matter where you are on the spiral-and we're all somewhere-Green's novel makes the trip, either up or down, a less solitary experience." - The Globe and Mail
"A thoughtful look at mental illness and a debilitating obsessive-compulsive disorder that doesn't ask but makes you feel the constant struggles of its main character. . . . Turtles explores the definition of happy endings, whether love is a tragedy or a failure, and a universal lesson for us all: 'You work with what you have.'" - USA Today
"Tender, wise, and hopeful." - The Wall Street Journal
"A new modern classic." - The Guardian
"Green's most authentic and most ambitious work to date." - Bustle
"An existential teenage scream." - Vox
"Funny, clever, and populated with endearing characters." - Entertainment Weekly
"An incredibly powerful tale of the pain of mental illness, the pressures of youth, and coming of age when you feel like you're coming undone." - Shelf Awareness
★ "A richly rewarding read...the most mature of Green's work to date and deserving of all the accolades that are sure to come its way." - Booklist
★ "In an age where troubling events happen almost weekly, this deeply empathetic novel about learning to live with demons and love one's imperfect self is timely and important." - Publishers Weekly
★ "A deeply resonant and powerful novel that will inform and enlighten readers even as it breaks their hearts. A must-buy." - School Library Journal
Praise for John Green

Critical acclaim for The Fault in Our Stars:
"Damn near genius . . . The Fault in Our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it's also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness." -Lev Grossman, TIME Magazine
"This is a book that breaks your heart-not by wearing it down, but by making it bigger until it bursts." -The Atlantic
"Remarkable . . . A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy." -USA Today
"[Green's] voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. You will be thankful for the little infinity you spend inside this book." -NPR.org
"John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit." -The Washington Post
"[Green] shows us true love-two teenagers helping and accepting each other through the most humiliating physical and emotional ordeals-and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach." -New York Times Book Review

„Long-Awaited Return“

The wait is finally over! Five years after "The Fault in Our Stars", John Green has published a new YA novel, that will stay with you long after you've finshed reading it.

Aza is persuaded by her best friend Daisy to look into the disappearance of a local billionaire. In order to get some inside information she is kind of forced into reconnecting with her childhood friend Davis, who just so happens to be said fugitive's son. Even though Aza is trying hard to help Daisy solve the mystery, whilst also comforting Davis, she still has her own battles to fight. More often than not she is stuck in her own head, thinking obsessive thoughts and displaying unlogical behaviour.

"Turtles All the Way Down" is a rather character-driven novel and primarily focuses on 16-year-old Aza and her mental health issues. Being familiar with getting stuck in thought spirals, the author has created a very authentic character and manages to captivate his readers like few others could. Even though there isn't that much going on plot-wise you simply cannot put down this book. It is gripping and informative, sweet and frustrating, offers some great dialogue and likeable minor characters.

If you like your reading to be smart and realistic and don't mind it addressing a serious topic, you should not miss out on "Turtles All the Way Down"! It really is a great read!

Love it
von Alexandra Petrini am 15.10.2017

It's about frendship and love and mystery and mental issues . This book actually isn't focuesd on love or something like this (like the other stories from Green) . Is focuesd more on self finding, the issues that the protagonist is focusing in all of her story.... It's about frendship and love and mystery and mental issues .

philosophische Antworten auf existentielle Fragen - ein anspruchsvolles Jugedenbuch
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 18.11.2017

Es ist mein erster John Green, der seit "Das Schicksal ist ein mieser Charakter" ja schon viele jungen Leser*innen begeistert hat. Auch mich, obwohl schon etwas älter hat dieser Roman begeistert. Zwar suggeriert der Titel eine gewisse Jugendlichkeit, aber ich denke auch junge Erwachsene oder Eltern können diesen Roman gerne lesen. Denn er enthält mitnichten kindliche fiese Gedanken, welche die Hauptprotagonisten quälen. Ihr erster Satz lautet: "I might be fictional...". Also ist das Individuum ein Produkt seiner äußeren Umstände, eine biologische Masse, die im schlimmsten Falle durch Bakterien gesteuert wird. Wo ist nach Abzug aller von außen stammenden Einflüsse, welche die Existenz und die Gedanken bestimmen, das richtige Bewusstsein? Wer steuert die Gedanken, oder sind wir die Summe unserer Gedanken? Azas panische Angst vor Bakterien geht so weit, dass sie nach dem Küssen Desinfektionsmittel trinkt und eine Stelle am Finger durch wiederholtes Säubern nicht abheilen kann. Unterstützung findet Aza von ihrer quirligen Freundin Daisy, die in ihrer Freizeit erfolgreich Fan-Fiction-Stories aus der Star Wars Welt schreibt und von ihrem Freund Davis. Dessen Vater ist aufgrund von kriminellen Machenschaften spurlos verschwunden, er wiederum sucht Trost in den Sternen und in den Zitaten von bekannten Schriftstellern. Der Roman hat mich hauptsächlich wegen der philosophischen Fragen sehr berührt, denn wie viele Jugendliche habe auch ich mir früher solche Fragen gestellt. Hierbei hat mir das thematische Zitieren bekannter Schriftstellern sehr gefallen. Die Figuren finde ich sehr gut ausgearbeitet, wobei jedoch die Gedankenschleifen von Azas Ängsten ein wenig zuviel Raum einnimmt und ein wenig zu oft "I love you" gesagt wird. Die Kriminalgeschichte rund um Davis Vater und sein verschwinden ist anfangs richtig spannend geschrieben, verliert allerdings zum Schluss ein wenig an Fahrt. Zuletzt ist die eigentliche Heldin der Geschichte die taffe Daisy, die ihr Schicksal unglaublich gut meistert. Zuletzt stellt sich nur die Frage, wenn die Erde eine flache Scheibe ist, die auf dem Rücken einer gigantischen Schildkröte liegt, ist, worauf steht dann die Schildkröte?
