Author Review; John Green

Lets face it, i don't think there's a book lover in the world that hasn't heard of John Green, maybe if ancient history is your thing. I've only chosen to talk about the books Mr Green has wrote himself even thought i love Let It Snow and Will Grayson, Will Grayson as well, i just thought there was enough to talk about without adding extras in too! 

So i'd like to begin by talking about John Green as an author as that's the whole point really. I think John is known mostly for the poetic quotes in his many books from the tear jerking words of Augustus Waters to the inspiring descriptions from Margo Roth Spiegelman. Johns books show the spectrum of bright and colourful characters that are put in trying times and are forced to make life changing decisions. In the spirit of John Green's poeticness i complied a list of five favorite quotes some from myself others from friends, here we go.

1) "A Harmatia?" he asked, the cigarette still in his mouth, It tightened his jaw. He had a hell of a jawline, unfortunately. 
"A fatal flaw" i explained turning away from him..." - The Fault In Our Stars

2)" I'm not saying that everything is survivable. Just that everything but the last thing is." - 
Paper Towns

3) “It's not because I want to make out with her."
"Hold on." He grabbed a pencil and scrawled excitedly at the paper as if he'd just made a mathematical breakthrough and then looked back up at me. "I just did some calculations, and I've been able to determine that you're full of shit” - Looking for Alaska

4) "“Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here in Bumblefug, Kentucky, and noticed that someone had carved that GOD HATES FAG, which, aside from being a grammatical nightmare, is absolutely ridiculous. So I'm changing it to 'God Hates Baguettes.' It's tough to disagree with that. Everybody hates baguettes.” - Abundance of Katherines 

5)“I didn’t need you, you idiot. I picked you. And then you picked me back.” - Paper Towns

6) "Poetry is just so emo." he said. "Oh, the pain. The pain. It always rains. In my soul.” - 
Paper Towns

Okay so maybe six but the last one made me laugh so i had to put it on the list. By the way the quotes aren't ordered in how much i like them there just random, because i love them all. The quotes might help you decide which book want to buy and read but if i'm honest John Greens books speak for themselves. Every single one of them is a literary masterpiece which is why John has become an international best seller, has had some of his books made into films and is loved by many. In conclusion i highly recommend you buy each one of his books as there a amazing in their own different and unique ways.
