It’s been 5 and a half years since John Green has released a new book. 5 and a half years of waiting, questioning, and most importantly, re-reading all of his previously published novels. However, last week Penguin announced that a new work from the acclaimed author is slated to hit shelves on October 10th.
Turtles All the Way Down will be Green’s 6th stand alone novel (not counting the brilliant Let it Snow), and readers across the globe are anxious to crack open its spine.
But what can we expect from this long awaited book?
While I won’t pretend to be able to read the mind of the genius that is Green, as a fan, I can tell you that Turtles All the Way Down is sure to include:
Creatively Complex Characters
If there’s one thing John Green is known for, it’s creating engaging characters that you feel are your best friend by the time the final chapter ends. While some call them pretentious, these characters are a staple to Green’s plots, and never disappoint when it comes to their quirky habits.
Adventures You Wish Were Real
Green’s novels have a tendency to take you to another world while giving you the inspiration to get out and explore your own. I’m betting, just based on the short summary we’ve been given, that his new book will be no different. Because who hasn’t gone on a spontaneous road trip with friends in search of a missing girl the day of your high school graduation?
Puns That Will Make You Roll Your Eyes
A nerd at heart, Green never fails when it comes to jokes that will leave you groaning out of clever frustration. Whether it’s a carefully crafted insult or witty word play between friends, Turtles All the Way Down is sure to give readers the laughs (and eye rolls) we’ve been craving since The Fault in Our Stars ended.
Approximately 300 Pages of Enjoyment
No matter what the pages of Green’s new book hold, it can be guaranteed that readers will be given hours worth of enjoyment as we make our way from the front to back cover. Sure, there are skeptics that say Green’s new works will never live up to the past, but no matter what the reviews end up shouting, Turtles All the Way Down will be a book none of us will forget.
