Lit Lit is a segment here on The Thrill in which I get someone lit (yup) and then that someone chooses a work of literature and gives me a summary and quick discussion of the themes of that work. This time I had the pleasure of talking about, yes, you read that right, Turtles All the Way Down by our very own John Green, with who I will refer to throughout as Mackerel Rough. Dialogue is written in plain old font, our actions in italics.
What is John Green’s highly reviewed book Turtles All the Way Down all about?
MR: So I must first put out a disclaimer that I am somewhat embarrassed to have bought the book, but I had to buy it, or else sixteen year old me would have been mad at me. Do you know what I mean though? I bought it at the bookstore, it was signed and everything. It was also 20% off which is pretty good for a hardcover. And like I have all his other books. I had to.
