Paper Towns


Author: John Green

Summary: Who is the real Margo?

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew..

Comments: I love you John Green, I really do, even though the only other book of yours that I’ve read is The Fault in Our Stars (though admittedly it wasn’t all that great, and as blasphemous as this may sound, I love the movie better than the book *GASP* but I really liked it).

So, Paper Towns. 

What should’ve taken me a maximum of four hours to finish took away 2 days of my life. That’s 2 days I’ll never get back. I’m a very fast reader; I can finish a whole book in 2-4 hours, provided I have little interruption. But while reading this, I was looking forward to some interruption myself.
I cannot stress how boring this book is.

Q’s crush on Margo is no mere crush; it’s an obsession. An unhealthy obsession. And don’t get me started on Margo Roth Spiegelman, who’s apparently so perfect and awesome that 4 people miss their graduation to race across to country to look for this attention-seeking, self-centered bitch.

Halfway through the book I was ready to kill Margo myself.

Was seriously considering adding it to my DNF pile. What kept me going was this need to know if that bitch Margo is dead. Not gonna spoil anything here, but I must say I’m disappointed with how it ends. I leave it to you to guess why.

Rating: 2/5
