Staff Reviews


"The Anthropocene Reviewed is John Green in his element. Based on the hit podcast of the same name, Green’s personal essays are fascinating and quirky vignettes on humanity’s impact on the world in our current geological age. He manages to transform what might otherwise be mundane factoids like the formulation of Diet Dr. Pepper and the World’s Largest Ball of Paint into profound reflections on our past, present, and future. I highly recommend listening to the podcast, as some of the essays derive from previous podcast episodes."--Reviewed by Cristina

Description


A deeply moving and insightful collection of personal essays from #1 bestselling author John Green.

The Anthropocene is the current geologic age, in which humans have profoundly reshaped the planet and its biodiversity. In this remarkable symphony of essays adapted and expanded from his groundbreaking podcast, bestselling author John Green reviews different facets of the human-centered planet on a five-star scale--from the QWERTY keyboard and sunsets to Canada geese and Penguins of Madagascar.

Funny, complex, and rich with detail, the reviews chart the contradictions of contemporary humanity. As a species, we are both far too powerful and not nearly powerful enough, a paradox that came into sharp focus as we faced a global pandemic that both separated us and bound us together.

John Green's gift for storytelling shines throughout this masterful collection. The Anthropocene Reviewed is a open-hearted exploration of the paths we forge and an unironic celebration of falling in love with the world.
