Paper Towns by John Green | Book Review

Paper Towns, by John Green

Genre: Contemporary
Publication Date: September 22, 2009
Publisher: Speak
Pages: 305
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes and Noble

Synopsis (from Goodreads): Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back 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 of the girl he thought he knew.

My Thoughts: Paper Towns is now my favorite John Green book. The characters are similar (read: pretty much exactly the same) to those in Looking for Alaska — Quentin is basically Pudge and Margo is basically Alaska — but still, they’re real and funny and just so interesting to read about.

I love John Green’s writing in all of his books. He makes it so easy to believe that these teenagers are real people, not just paper boys and paper girls. His books are so funny even when they’re sad, and Paper Towns is no exception.

My Rating: ★★★★★ (5/5 Stars) ~ I just loved the characters, the writing, and the story so much that I had to give this a 5 star rating.

  1. […] This is my favorite John Green book that I’ve read so far. It wasn’t sad, unlike TFIOS and Looking For Alaska, and it had a road trip aspect to it that I really liked. I really like John Green’s writing style, and I was able to finish this in just a few days. You can read my full (but very bad) review here. […]
