John Green’s collection of reviews and short essays, The Anthropocene Reviewed, is fantastic despite being so different from his other novels. Green reviews everything about our human-centered planet in this book on a five-star scale, including Canadian Geese. I loved how this book made me feel closer to its author; Green’s reviews provided great insight into his thoughts and feelings. My favorite part of this book was how chaotic yet perfect it was. One minute Green discusses Dr. Pepper, and in the next, he dissects human loneliness. While all of the chapters were written without a cohesive storyline, they all manage to connect seemingly unimportant pieces of humanity to the great secrets of the universe.
