Hey Bookgeetout fam, “We’re here because we’re here because we’re here because we’re here.” Turtles All The Way Down by John Green .
I finally read #tatwd
and the book is a 4 star for me. .
The “Turtles All The Way Down” phrase in this story is used to illustrate that despite what we go through we still have a say in all our experiences. Even if we cannot control what will happen or understand we are the stories we tell about ourselves and that is our power.Here is John’s explanation. To me it also felt that as you move from one layer/turtle to another, every other layer/turtle is an essential part of you even though you are moving through everything trying to find yourself. Without knowing, you found you, you are a plural in the singularity of I.
The story was a sentimental journey because mental health is a topic close to my heart and I feel like he did justice to the story as it is. This story does not elicit pity at all,the story is one of survival despite the challenge of a mental illness without being romanticized either.
The whole detective srory was unnecessary though. For full review , link is in my bio.
