Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

A deeply moving and insightful collection of personal essays from number-one best-selling author John Green, adapted from his critically acclaimed podcast.

The Anthropocene is the current geological age, in which human activity has profoundly shaped the planet and its biodiversity. In this remarkable symphony of essays adapted and expanded from his groundbreaking podcast, John Green reviews different facets of the human-centred planet - from the QWERTY keyboard and Staphylococcus aureus to the Taco Bell breakfast menu - on a five-star scale.

Complex and rich with detail, the Anthropocene's reviews have been praised as 'observations that double as exercises in memoiristic empathy'. John Green's gift for storytelling shines throughout this artfully curated collection that includes both beloved essays and all-new pieces exclusive to the book.

A Review

Just hear John speak to you and your soul and all your sensibilities, to reflect upon your own life and all the words you have read and forgotten and wish you could hold on to.

Intense


I had read all books of John Green prior to this.
I was avoiding this book as it's non-fiction.
I only picked up this book because it's the 2021 Goodreads winner (non-fiction).
In a lot of ways this book is quite like vlogbrothers.
However, it's not as fast as vlogbrothers.
May be that's because I read it and not John or Hank.
John Green has put into writing what we sometimes think and then let it go, if everything what we do had a meaning and the effects of our actions.
Some of the chapters are amazing, some are okay.
Some chapters were pretty intense, some were moving.
I give John Green's Anthropocene Reviewed 4 stars.

A noble and great introduction to Anthropocene

If there is one book you should give to aliens to explain what happens on this little planet, this should be it. It is so good!

amazing writing and thinking by John Green

Enjoyed this audiobook narrated by John Green himself where he discusses a variety of topics and his thoughts and feelings on the same along with the historical background he does so beautifully .Topics range from simple drinks to birds to places and all are completely relatable .a great read indeed ..

Splendid

it was a joyful ride till the end of the book. So much knowledge, so well assembled and written. I was in tears when Googling was reviewed or when sunset was. I am definitely recommending it to my folks.

We're here

We're here because we're here because we're here because we're here,
we're here because we're here because we're here because we're here.
Thanks John for allowing me to hear hope in these times of Extremity.

Enjoyable read

Picked it up immediately after Sapiens and hence was disappointed in the beginning but later, I just enjoyed the non-streamlined flow of the author just talking about “things”. It’s enjoyable!

This is a typical John Green work

I love the work of the Vlogbrothers. I have started following their work only recently.
I find it weird to have to rate this Book that starts on the premise of how novel the 5 star system is. Well, it's not weird, but it's something. It did make me cry a few times. And laugh a few times. And so, I give the audiobook version of The Anthropocene Reviewed, 5 stars.

Very similar to the podcast

Loved it. Especially because John himself read it. I would've preferred if it had some background score. Also, chapters should've been named for easy navigation.
