Family Circle


It’s not in the nature of a sci-fi comedy blockbuster to shift boulders in your soul. But with his debut novel, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, Hank Green pulls it off.… There are still a few exceptionally remarkable things that rise above the rest of their absolutely remarkable peers. In the pages of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, April’s discovery of New York Carl is one of these exceptions; in the real world, Green’s debut deserves to be another."
Paste Magazine


[A] comic debut that combines science fiction and mystery with philosophical musings about the perils of internet fame.… Though the ending is disappointing (it appears to be setting up a sequel), fans… will find his humor and perceptiveness intact in this novel.
Publishers Weekly


(Starred review) Led by an earnestly flawed, bisexual heroine with direction and commitment issues, coupled with an abundant generosity of spirit, this read is timely and sorely needed. Highly recommended.
Library Journal


(Starred review) Green makes an entertaining book debut in this fast-paced, witty first contact novel…At once funny, exciting, and a tad terrifying, this exploration of aliens and social media culture is bound to have wide appeal to readers interested in either theme.
Booklist


(Starred review) [Green] applies wit, affection, and cultural intelligence to a comic sci-fi novel.… A fun, contemporary adventure that cares about who we are as humans, especially when faced with remarkable events.
