A deeply moving and insightful collection of personal essays from #1 bestselling author John Green. The Anthropocene is the current geologic age, in which humans have profoundly reshaped the planet and its biodiversity. In this remarkable symphony of essays adapted and expanded from his groundbreaking podcast, bestselling author John Green reviews different facets of the human-centered planet on a five-star scale--from the QWERTY keyboard and sunsets to Canada geese and Penguins of Madagascar. Funny, complex, and rich with detail, the reviews chart the contradictions of contemporary humanity. As a species, we are both far too powerful and not nearly powerful enough, a paradox that came into sharp focus as we faced a global pandemic that both separated us and bound us together. John Green's gift for storytelling shines throughout this masterful collection. The Anthropocene Reviewed is a open-hearted exploration of the paths we forge and an unironic celebration of falling in love with the world. Audio exclusive! Three bonus essays!… (més)

If you watch John Green on YouTube (specifically vlog brothers) then this book will probably interest you from the side that it's a deep dive into his person thoughts, and experiences. Otherwise, it might be a tad boring.

There are definitely tidbits in every story that I did not know before reading it, but it wasn't information one seeks out, so the real pleasure of reading this book was getting to see John cope from the mental thought side with life, covid and everything in between.

It was shorter than I expected, and being that it has a podcast that has already had seasons, I'm a little curious how these reviews made the cut out of all the random Anthropocene reviews John has done.

All that being said, this is a very personal read, and if you love John Green you'll love getting a birds eye view of how he sees the world. As an anxious person, I can see how writing this book would have been therapeutic for him.

P.S. Long live the true creator of Monopoly and mini gardens for ground hogs.

Some good essays, all a bit "podcasty" (best listened to a week apart, as Green's anecdotes repeat a bit). ( )

The Chipotle of Pholosophy resulting in a net of PMC apologia. To have so much in common with an author only to be disappointed by their basic analysis was a bummer. I give The Anthropocene Reviewed 2 stars. ( )

The mind of John Green, when not immersed in fiction, is a weird, interesting, and definitely quirky place. Essays. 2022 read. ( )

A collection of essays curated from John Green's podcast with his brother Hank. I learned so many cool new facts about the largest paint ball in the world, how the first Nathan's hot dog contest held in 1916, the winner ate 127 hot dogs in one hour and all about Penguins, to name a few. I laughed out loud as I listened his rant about Canadian Geese and how boring The Hall of Presidents truly is. ( )

Introduction
My novel Turtles All The Way Down was published in October of 2017, and after spending a month on tour for the book, I came home to Indianapolis and blazed a trail between my children's tree house and the little room where my wife and I often work, a room that depending on your worldview is either an office or a shed.

"You'll Never Walk Alone"
It is May of 2020, and I do not have a brain well suited to this.

Despair isn't very productive. That's the problem with it. Like a replicating virus, all despair can make is more of itself.
