BOOK REVIEW: Paper Towns by John Green


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.
I am still right about John Green being the New York Times Best Selling Author? Yes? Then why on heaven above was this book boring as hell? This wasn't my first attempt at this novel, nor my second. But my third try at getting into this book. Why? Why, why was this book even published? From the first chapter, I was bored and during the course of the novel, I became even more bored out of my mind! Someone professional please edit this novel.

The plot has completely collasped in this novel and I believe that the main character is a stalker who just wants to chat up some girl who has gone missing! This book sets a bad example to boys and possibly girls who wants to go out with another person. I'm sorry, but being stalked is not a way you can get a boyfriend or girlfriend. It is just damn creepy! D: As you can tell, I did not enjoy this novel at all and I am so dissapointed with the out put! The blurb isn't that appealing either and I think that this is just another verson of An Abundance of Katherines (read review here) This book, in my opinion, also shows that running away could be a good idea and that you don't care about the people you hurt. Also, I think that this book hasn't been written to the correct pace because it seems too rushed.

I wanted to DNF this novel and forget about it, but I couldn't because I wanted to read all of John's books.I still have Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Looking For Alaska to read but I have been really put off reading them because of this one novel. I will find it very hard to get onto John's other books now!  D:

I didn't enjoy this novel and I do not recommend this book at all!
