    Fortunate happenstance has led to me reading this book with absolutely no prior knowledge to what it was about. I?ve just grown tired with John Green romanticizing the white heterosexual nerd?s quest for the perfect woman whom they win by using the longest most pretentious words po...

    WOW! This was excellent! I honestly went into it very skeptical, but I am leaving this feeling super satisfied with every aspect of this story. I'm so happy that there's going to be a sequel, because that ending left me hanging! It was the ONLY thing I wasn't satisfied with. ...

    I just finished An Absolutely Remarkable Thing and it was great!! I had so much fun flying through this book. My booktalk will be coming later this week, I'm excited to discuss with yall! ...

    Publisher: So Hank you want to write a book? Hank: Yes, my brother wrote a bunch which means that I can too! Publisher: What do you want it to be about. Hank: I want to write a book about aliens. Publisher: So like the 5th wave. Hank: Kind of but let's remove all the violent parts...

    4.5/5 I'm honestly still in shock. I went into this book quite skeptically as this is Hank Green's debut coupled with the fact that I don't tend to gravitate towards sci-fi. HOWEVER. This was such a whirlwind of a book! I didn't research this book before starting (which I'd recomme...

    This was actually a pretty interesting sci-fi! I'm always reluctant to read any book with a "youtube star" because it's usually badly done but since the author does videos himself everything turned out fine. It's a very interesting take on the whole "first contact with aliens" bu...

    OH MAN. What a dang read. Shoot peeps. This one hit me really hard. It was one of those books where the second I finished it all I wanted to do was read it again. So I will. Soon. And you should too. ...

    *I'm going to mull this over before I review/rate it because I've bounced around A LOT* ...

    Okay where is my crash course squad? ...

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. This was SO. GOOD. SOOOOO GOOD. I love Hank so I was really worried that I wasn?t going to love it but WOW. What a phenomenal read. I need more NOW ? ...

    Meh. It had a really cool plot but I hated the writing style. And that ending made it even worse for me. I did not realize this would be part of a series when I picked it up so I was expecting a satisfying ending, and it did not deliver for me. Bummer. ...

    April May is the snarky, relationship wrecking narrator who is unwittingly catapulted into the dizzying heights of international fame upon being the first to discover a randomly named ?Carl?. Initially thought to be an art installation, the Carls prove to be considerably more than ...

    It was 2:45 in the morning, and April May was walking home in New York City after a long night of working. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw it: "A ten-foot-tall Transformer wearing a suit of samurai armor, its huge barrel chest lifted up to the sky a good four or five feet abov...

    Upon Announcement: I CAN'T WAAAAIT! After Reading: So I am giving this four stars for now, even though it is possible it is a 3/3.5-star book. I really loved everything it had to say and the way in which it said it, and I thought it was a highly original and well-written s...

    This book has rekindled my interest in the Science Fiction genre which, after so many past disappointments, was not an easy thing to do. But feeling indifferent about this story was close to impossible, especially with a narrator like April May who enjoys speaking directly to the reade...

    I obviously wanted to read this because...it's Hank Green.. But I think I will just stick to the other brother of John for now oops. This style of story isn't really in my realm of interests, I confess. Adults/scifi? Hm. So possibly the book is just *not for me* but I was so confused a...

    DNF @ 75% It?s not you it?s me, Book. RTC ?????? *puts on spectacles* TIME TO IMAGINE A ROBOT COMPLEXLY ? . . . I knew it! I still listen to Hank and John Green's podcast, and a few episodes ago Hank teased an announcement. Totally n...

    Buddy Read with Fellow Cardan the Furry Enthusiast "Carl is not a possible thing, and yet there he is, guarding the Chipotle, leading people to conclude that he was not created by humans." So ... just like I thought ... Trash. I went in to this with semi high hopes as everyo...

    I hate that people are calling this "young adult". It's not. Stop it with the inane labels that turn people off instead of bringing them in. The main character isn't even in high school OR college for that matter! This is a book for people that like to read quirky, pop-culture-...

    4.5/5 I'm honestly still in shock. I went into this book quite skeptically as this is Hank Green's debut coupled with the fact that I don't tend to gravitate towards sci-fi. HOWEVER. This was such a whirlwind of a book! I didn't research this book before starting (which I'd recomme...

    This was actually a pretty interesting sci-fi! I'm always reluctant to read any book with a "youtube star" because it's usually badly done but since the author does videos himself everything turned out fine. It's a very interesting take on the whole "first contact with aliens" bu...

    OH MAN. What a dang read. Shoot peeps. This one hit me really hard. It was one of those books where the second I finished it all I wanted to do was read it again. So I will. Soon. And you should too. ...

    *I'm going to mull this over before I review/rate it because I've bounced around A LOT* ...

    Okay where is my crash course squad? ...

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. This was SO. GOOD. SOOOOO GOOD. I love Hank so I was really worried that I wasn?t going to love it but WOW. What a phenomenal read. I need more NOW ? ...

    Meh. It had a really cool plot but I hated the writing style. And that ending made it even worse for me. I did not realize this would be part of a series when I picked it up so I was expecting a satisfying ending, and it did not deliver for me. Bummer. ...

    April May is the snarky, relationship wrecking narrator who is unwittingly catapulted into the dizzying heights of international fame upon being the first to discover a randomly named ?Carl?. Initially thought to be an art installation, the Carls prove to be considerably more than ...

    It was 2:45 in the morning, and April May was walking home in New York City after a long night of working. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw it: "A ten-foot-tall Transformer wearing a suit of samurai armor, its huge barrel chest lifted up to the sky a good four or five feet abov...

    Upon Announcement: I CAN'T WAAAAIT! After Reading: So I am giving this four stars for now, even though it is possible it is a 3/3.5-star book. I really loved everything it had to say and the way in which it said it, and I thought it was a highly original and well-written s...

    This book has rekindled my interest in the Science Fiction genre which, after so many past disappointments, was not an easy thing to do. But feeling indifferent about this story was close to impossible, especially with a narrator like April May who enjoys speaking directly to the reade...

    Upon Announcement: I CAN'T WAAAAIT! After Reading: So I am giving this four stars for now, even though it is possible it is a 3/3.5-star book. I really loved everything it had to say and the way in which it said it, and I thought it was a highly original and well-written s...

    This book has rekindled my interest in the Science Fiction genre which, after so many past disappointments, was not an easy thing to do. But feeling indifferent about this story was close to impossible, especially with a narrator like April May who enjoys speaking directly to the reade...

    I obviously wanted to read this because...it's Hank Green.. But I think I will just stick to the other brother of John for now oops. This style of story isn't really in my realm of interests, I confess. Adults/scifi? Hm. So possibly the book is just *not for me* but I was so confused a...

    Fortunate happenstance has led to me reading this book with absolutely no prior knowledge to what it was about. I?ve just grown tired with John Green romanticizing the white heterosexual nerd?s quest for the perfect woman whom they win by using the longest most pretentious words po...

    WOW! This was excellent! I honestly went into it very skeptical, but I am leaving this feeling super satisfied with every aspect of this story. I'm so happy that there's going to be a sequel, because that ending left me hanging! It was the ONLY thing I wasn't satisfied with. ...

    I just finished An Absolutely Remarkable Thing and it was great!! I had so much fun flying through this book. My booktalk will be coming later this week, I'm excited to discuss with yall! ...

    4.5/5 I'm honestly still in shock. I went into this book quite skeptically as this is Hank Green's debut coupled with the fact that I don't tend to gravitate towards sci-fi. HOWEVER. This was such a whirlwind of a book! I didn't research this book before starting (which I'd recomme...

    This was actually a pretty interesting sci-fi! I'm always reluctant to read any book with a "youtube star" because it's usually badly done but since the author does videos himself everything turned out fine. It's a very interesting take on the whole "first contact with aliens" bu...
