Who has the right to change the world forever? 

How will we live online? 
How do we find comfort in an increasingly isolated world?
/>  
The Carls disappeared the same way they appeared, in an instant. While the robots were on Earth, they caused confusion and destruction with only their presence. Part of their maelstrom was the sudden viral fame and untimely death of April May: a young woman who stumbled into Carl??s path, giving them their name, becoming their advocate, and putting herself in the middle of an avalanche of conspiracy theories. 
 
Months later, April??s friends are trying to find their footing in a post-Carl world. Andy has picked up April??s mantle of fame, speaking at conferences and online; Maya, ravaged by grief, begins to follow a string of mysteries that she is convinced will lead her to April; and Miranda is contemplating defying her friends?? advice and pursuing a new scientific operation?one that might have repercussions beyond anyone??s comprehension. Just as it is starting to seem like the gang may never learn the real story behind the events that changed their lives forever, a series of clues arrive??mysterious books that seem to predict the future and control the actions of their readers??all of which seems to suggest that April could be very much alive.
 
In the midst of the search for the truth and the search for April is a growing force, something that wants to capture our consciousness and even control our reality. A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor is the bold and brilliant follow-up to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. It is a fast-paced adventure that is also a biting social commentary, asking hard, urgent questions about the way we live, our freedoms, our future, and ho… (mer)

This book was far blunter in stating political opinion than its predecessor. It was very obvious when the plot just functions as a backdrop to talk about political ideas.
While I think most of the first book's arguments were very hard to dispute as they, for the most part, just pointed out observable social dynamics in an engaging way, this book sticks its neck out way further in its political discussion and makes a few controversial assumptions.

Beyond its extended social discussion, this book felt very much like a repetition of the first book but with classically raised stakes. This is something I loved about the first book. While there were a lot of ominous global events going on, the plot itself didn't have concrete stakes beyond individual people's well-being. This book felt a lot more formulaic in comparison.
Andy's struggle very much felt like a repetition of the pitfalls of having power and influence but in a far less nuanced way than April had in the first book.
The entire book was very blunt about its messages and left little to be discovered by the reader.
It also had far less moral ambiguity. The entire plot became a rather black and white affair very quickly.

While a lot of the tools the author used in his first book were quite novel and worked very well, a lot of them were overused in this book. Too much of a good thing and all that. One that was particularly noticeable was the unreliable narrator. Despite it not being used for an actual twist this time, the constant back and forth got old fast. "Now I am going to tell you everything, just kidding, I left this out but now I am going to be entirely honest, got you, I'll amend this other thing now, entirely out of order, etc." ( )

I can still remember how I felt after reading this, and not wanting to write a review because I didn't love it nearly as much as the first one. Still, I am not the target audience and anyway, I love Hank Green and want him to be my brother instead of John's. Or well, actually I want them both to be my brothers. If Hank writes book three I am totally reading it.

I loved Am Absolutely Remarkable Thing, in part because it felt so grounded in real internet and media ecosystems. Despite it's fantastical premise, everything felt plausible.

In ABFE, it felt like Green was trying to up the ante on all fronts, and the book lost its predecessor's groundedness. It also felt preachy in a way the first novel never did. I'm pretty disappointed. ( )

In the minority once again. Long, meandering and ultimately unsatisfying. Really liked the first one, this one, considerably less. ( )

Yay libraries!

This is weird and scary and bizarre and compelling, this second and final part of the story. Highly recommended. ( )
