It all begins with a fugitive billionaire and the promise of a cash reward.
Turtles All the Way Down is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
In his long-awaited return, John Green shares Aza's story with shattering, unflinching clarity.

Not only does John Green deliver his usual beautifully crafted cry fest, but as a person with a mental illness, this stuck a chord deep within me. It provides a voice to the very abstract in a wonderfully accurate and complex manner that is very hard to find.
I'm not usually a fan of audiobooks, as I prefer pacing the story according to my emotional responses, but Kate Rudd delivers an entrancing performance that I was unable to stop listening to for longer than 10 minutes, even though I got this book way too late in the day for it to be appropriate to consume it in one sitting. It's 1:47 am on the 11/10/17 as I type this. That's how good this is.

I hate to call it a trigger warning, but-
John Green is, as always, an excellent writer, and this performance is really good at 1.25 speed (at just normal speed it was a little flat in places, but that might just be me). However, if you actually HAVE anxiety, be prepared to take this book slowly. Maybe some people it won't affect, but I had to take regular breaks or risk having a panic attack of my own. Aza's spirals felt very real and very tangible and too, too familiar.
