the anthropocene reviewed by john green

“the anthropocene reviewed” wasn’t written for me.

what i liked:

  1. attempt to make it informative
  2. footnotes

what i didn’t like:

  1. amount of solipsism.
  2. the tone of the book was aiming for gravitas and falling short too often.
  3. having listened to the same content as podcast first. i couldn’t shrug off the feeling of reused content without much improvement. i’d even say that these essays go better as podcast.

i might have appreciated this book more if i were younger and north american. it didn’t help that the book was overhyped in my informational field. everyone and their pibling was praising it, so inevitably, my expectations were raised high.
