I’ve been wanting to read John Green for a long time, I just haven’t been able to get my hands on any of his work until now. So I’m really excited about this. You can check it out here.
Summary: Quentin was once friends with Margo Roth Speigelman, but all of that changed after they discovered the body of man who killed himself. Margo drifted away, making new friends and gradually becoming something of a legend among her peers. Quentin, meanwhile, admired her from afar…until she showed up at his window one night. She takes him on a wild adventure to enact revenge on all her backstabbing friends, though Quentin has no idea why she picked him after all this time. Quentin is excited by the prospect of their reconnection. She’s the girl of his dreams, after all. And then she disappears the next morning. Quentin starts finding clues she left behind, and, believing that Margo wants him to find her, begins a determined search to find the girl he’s always loved. As the search goes on, Quentin begins to realize that the Margo he knew, the Margo he’s loved for so long, may be nothing more than a dream.
Likes: I loved Paper Towns. It’s hilarious, for one thing. John Green has amazing wit and a great sense of humor. All of the characters are fascinating and well-developed. The plot was a little slow in the beginning, but definitely picked up. John Green also has this amazing way of describing things that I think is really unique and fresh. I loved this book.
Dislikes: I would recommend Paper Towns to any young adult, or adult. It’s an entertaining, well-written, funny book that will make you think about the way you see the world and relate to other people. That being said, it can be fairly crass and does have quite a bit of language in it, if that’s something you’re concerned about.
