Okay, to start out- spoiler. The main character DIES. Who on EARTH would want to waste their time reading a book where the main character dies. Actually, wait- people have to have been reading it, because Mr. Green and his Vlog account have been making a whole lot of money off of his kill-the-main-character franchise. Second, the stuff in it. Okay, sure there is some stupid positive message hidden somewhere in it,but not where kids can grasp it. But what kids DO get from it is the sex, the drugs, the drinking, the smoking- all the stuff that make Ms. Alaska here "cool". It's like shouting out "Drink Alcohol at age 16!" And plus, none of the characters are real, even in the fictional sense. They seem to be a way for John Green to get his opinion across where people will read it, and think, "Hey, this dude is so deep- let's subscribe to his vlog account and tell everyone how deep he is!" Which, by the way is EXACTLY what it is intended to do: you cry, and spend money on his books, he gets the money, and you get to be "deep". Where is the great adventure, the smiles, the humor, the magic, the romance? All the elements for a good book are missing. But for a book to be a bestseller, it has to follow the same recipe that it has had since the Secret Life of Bees was first published- first, kill all parents, then send the main characteroff to remote place, then, include lots of sex, language, drugs, and alcohol, and finally, kill a main character and leave the others in a life of depression. What could possibly inspire people to read trash like this repetitively? Simple- being deep. Mr. Green and his deep books are a living example of the emperor's new clothes- how people read trash just to be deep.Go, sensible people, stand up while you still can, stand up for those nice books that don't violently kill the main characters off, the ones like Lord of the Rings, Percy Jackson, or Little Women, Castaways of the Flying Dutchmen, Star Wars, the ones that are plain old GOOD BOOKS.
