Why John Green is my least favourite Writer.

Someone once told me that an artist should know why they don’t like another artists work. Hence my journey of what kind of work I like and what I don’t like.

Writing like every other form of art is subjective, so I may absolutely hate something and another may absolutely love it or vice versa. People may think that my reason for not liking John Green may be because of him killing characters or his unhappy endings but I feel as though that is one of the very few aspects of his writings I like and am completely okay with. I find myself really enjoying authors like Jodi Picoult, deep and intense while simultaneously conquering controversial topics and beautifully spun, intricate plot lines. However, I also enjoy series like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson and the Lord of the Rings and such. These are more plot driven surface of the water works with more focus on the story line. They are captivating and explore different topics of various intensitites without completely being ‘in your face’ about it. You could find yourself finishing these books in one day and with Jodi Picoult you’d find yourself closing the book just to take in the beautifully woven sentences that despite their simplistic vocabulary talked about the world.

And as much as I love these two very different writing styles together they just give me a headache. John Green, I feel is exactly that. The very story driven aspect that runs on the curiosity of readers mixed with the intensity of heavy topics that the plot could totally do without makes me struggle between closing the book and finishing it in one day. And mostly out of frustration I close the book and don’t pick it up for a while. However if it was a good blend of the writing styles I’d definitely enjoy Green’s work but I find him switching back and forth between the two styles. You’d find a chapter heavily focusing on the plot and the next heavily exploring a character’s emotions and thus both lose their impact. The plot line is no longer captivating and the discussion is no longer impactful.

I do understand that this is just my opinion hence having written this in first person. Also that John Green is an amazing author, but I personally find his writing style very (for lack of better words) frustrating.

I was gawky and she was gorgeous and i was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating.So i walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk,thinking that if people were rain, i was drizzle and she was a hurricane.

i miss being younger and caring about things like paper towns and the fault in our stars, though i hadn’t even seen or read them when they were huge. i remember having to pick a book for english class and saying i was thinking of picking looking for alaska just because people talked about it all the time. now that looking for alaska is a hulu series, i only have .001% interest in watching it. 

i feel too old for this stuff. i haven’t seen to all the boys i loved before yet for that reason. i waited until season 2 to watch stranger things because i didn’t know there was anyone in the cast except the younger kids. even so, i feel a little pathetic for caring about the ‘teen’ storylines (aka nancy, jonathan, and steve). 

can someone please just make the next huge series like twilight or the hunger games and also give me a time machine/reverse aging potion so i can be a teenager again and live vicariously through movies? i know most movies feature 20+ year-old characters and actors so i’m not sure why it matters to me. i guess because there are more options, it’s harder to relate to/project onto a character now.

Thomas Edison’s last words were: ‘It’s very beautiful over there.’ I don’t know where there is, but I believe it’s somewhere, and I hope it’s beautiful.
