He is the ultimate pleb filter. Someone who writes very competently but comes at things from a perspective that is diametrically opposed to the average /lit/ goers world view. The plebs focus only on content and fail to grasp form. Most people who read him are exposed as the larping charlatans they are and promptly filtered.

I don't hate his books. I read one out of sheer boredom and it was a perfectly serviceable example off a genre I don't like. But his whole style as a writer is so repetitively idiosyncratic that I'm 100 percent sure I could write the next John Greene book under his name and it would be considered a strong addition to his bibliography.

Set it during the new school year at a prestigious boarding school for musically gifted teens. Previous semester a girl was staying a few days extra after every one went home for the summer and died in a fire. The story is from the point of view of her girl best friend and a guy who didn't really know her but was infatuated with her. They find out that she'd hidden cyphered pieces of her first full composition across campus, and the guy and girl start teaming up to hunt them down. Over the course of the search they find evidence that she had a shit home life and had more complexity than the idealized image either of them had of her would allow. There's friction throughout the whole process as the still alive girl finds the boy's commitment disrespectful and a mockery of her own real loss when he didn't even really know the girl, but as new details of the dead girls life come to the fore this friction is increasingly a way of the living girl taking her insecurity and sense of betrayal out at not really knowing her friend out on the guy. These two inevitably end up getting together.

Call it Starlight and belabour the fact that you can see light from stars that have gone out as a cringy metaphor for hearing a musical composition from someone dead. You can add to this a metaphor for the girls personal life being worse than they knew by talking about how the insides of stars are actually hellish, churning cauldrons of unimaginable force and heat, not the neat, dazzling jewels they appear to be at a distance.

I could fucking steal this guys life right now and nobody would be any the wiser

Content is far more essential than form.

God I hate semantictards. The act of the literature itself is only relevant insofar as the literature is correlative. You can write a beautiful piece of shit and if that’s all it is then it is fundamentally shit.
