Book of the year: The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green

One of the books I promised myself I would review this year is a book of deeply personal essays by my favorite author, John Green. As I mentioned in this earlier post from June, this was one of my favorite books of the year at that time: Top books read this year. I can’t say how much I enjoyed The Anthropocene Reviewed except to say it is a five-star experience for me. It is hopeful yet raw honesty that John Green is known for.

The introduction to the book is phenomenal, and the essay I found myself really loving is STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS. As long-time readers of the blog will know, I have Deep Brain Stimulation (links down below for information) and had that same staph infection that traveled along implanted leads going to my brain resulting in a long, painful summer and removal of my first attempt at DBS. Also, a one-star experience for me.

If you are looking for a book of rating everything on the five-star scale, from the qwerty keyboard to humanity’s temporal range to pandemics, this is the book for you. I think this is exactly what the world needs right now. I give The Anthropocene Reviewed five stars.


I am currently at forty-three thousand words on what I am calling a medical horror/fantasy book and I am having a blast. Wishing you all a blast this holiday season! Hope you make time for doing the things you love!
