I’ve read quite a few John Green books by now (though not all reviewed here), and I’ve got quite a good grip on his style, I think. For example, I’ve not read “The Fault in Our Stars” but when it was coming out in the movie theatres, I predicted the ending… I haven’t watched any of his movies because I’m not a fan of drama films. I’m not a big fan of drama books either, but since he is such a big name in YA novels, I can’t not read his books, you know? Anyway, today I found a quiz that will finally answer that age-old question: “Which John Green character are you?”
I like the idea of the quiz, but not really happy with the implementation. The first question is quite rude. And why is it always necessary to differentiate between guys and girls? I don’t identify with only female characters, and I’m sure it’s the same the other way round. Also, this would mean that I can only get into books with a big female character, and not when the main character is male? This quiz was oh so clearly made by a teenage girl, I could sense it in every question and every possible answer. Also, the questions are firstly based on who you look like and then move to who you think and act like. Two very different ways to answer the quiz’s question: which character you look like and which character you are like are not the same! (also, so many spelling mistakes – cringe)

And so apparently, I’m like Hassan: He is not the sharpest tool in the shed but he always listens to his friend’s problems! He’s goofy, hillarious, and will boost anyone’s mood! I had two answers that fit him, but also two answers that fit Colin Singleton (and then one each for Alaska Young and Jane). Strangely, both of my top answers are from “An Abundance of Katherines” which is one of the first John Green books I’ve read.
What were your results? Do you agree with them or not? Let me know in the comments!
