Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Turtles All the Way Down by John Green, read by Kate Rudd.

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.

    "Loved this audiobook!"

    You can always trust that a John Green book will have a strong underlying message, and Turtles All the Way Down is no exception. Beautifully and intelligently written, Aza is an unconventional main character who is charming with her flaws, and both Pickett sons are particularly important characters in their vulnerabilities. Green puts into words many thoughts and feelings I’ve always had difficulty describing.

    I was curious at the interesting title of this book, but it fits perfectly with the story, which kept me gripped the whole way through. Slightly different from his previous books, this is a must listen for anyone looking to get into the mindset of someone with a mental illness in a really relatable way.

    "My best read of 2017!"

    I can't believe I've never read a John Green book before. I mean, have I been living under a rock? Well, technically yes, I've been bed bound with M.E for 4 years but that's besides the point, we have this thing called the internet now. Anyway, I digress. I absolutely loved this book! John Green writes so beautifully, nothing ever feels cheesey or overdone, it's all completely understated and very very emotional. I totally get why he's such a hyped YA author, I really really could have done with this book in my late teens, it would have helped a lot. There are some really relevant chronic illness quotes in there which hit me in the feels, putting it into words that I can't find myself. Other than that the whole book levelled with me on the whole mental illness thing, having one really is Turtles All the Way Down.

    "A brilliant and poignant new story from John Green"

    Turtles all the way down is a gripping, well written young adult story which goes in directions you don't expect. The way mental illness, particularly OCD and anxiety, is portrayed in this book is brilliant. An honest portrayal without glorifying or stigmatising conditions. There are moments where you feel you are sharing Aza's pain and fear, and moments where you share her friend's exasperation. As always, John Green's teenage characters are intelligent, complex and a tiny bit pretentious, just how we like them.

    "Not John Green's best book, but a worthwhile read."

    Let me start by stating I thought Kate Rudd did a fantastic job of narrating this story, she really captured the characters well and managed to add an extra advantage to listening to the audiobook. Overall, I really enjoyed Turtles All The Way Down, there are some very clever messages and morales within this book. However, when compared to other JG novels it felt a little less flushed out, Aza was very well developed but every other character - apart from maybe Davis - was a little 2D for me. The story also felt a little rushed towards the end, possibly because JG knows his audience and doesn't want his books to over-each in terms of run-time, but it just felt like the story was building and building but then ended very suddenly.

    "good book but maybe not John green's best"

    it is a nice story as enjoyable as the rest of his books. I won't say it's my favourite of his collection but if you have read all the others you should read this one too.

    "It was well worth the 5 year wait"

    I think this has to be Green’s best book to date, I could not stop listening. His ability to create a contention always amazes me and is one of the many highlights of the book. Kate Rudd is a great narrator. I can only hope this isn’t the last John Green book.

    "A deep and real look at life with mental health "

    This story was so satisfying but for unconventional ways. The characters are struggles of different kinds coliding under one narrative. It shows quite clearly the difficulty of knowing that you are mentally unwell and not being able to do a thing about it individually. I would recommend this to all.
