As you may have noticed I post every other day but because I’m probably pretty busy tomorrow I post today also. 🙂
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…
This is the second time I read Paper Towns and I enjoyed reading it even more than when I read it the first time.
Quentin is a normal boy but he isn’t in for adventures. Everything is mapped out for him. A casual life: graduating, college, find work, buy a house, start a family, … But he’s madly in love with Margo Roth Spiegelman. Q and Margo know eacht other from when they were little but at the end of senioryear they were almost strangers. Everybody knows Margo. Well, so they say because Margo is one big mystery herself. Further on there are Radar and Ben, Q’s best friends. Radar is the computer genius and Ben only thinks about the “honeybunnies”.
John Green’s writingstyle is so good! Because John Green is John Green there are so many hilarious parts but he’s able to keep the story itself serious which I absolutely love. Every time I read a book of John Green I feel a little “wiser” because his books let you think about things in life. I had to keep my little book with quotes always next to me to add some more.
This is such a good book and it’s definetly my favourite John Green book!
Did you read Paper Towns? Did you like it? Do you think all the John Green are simular? At some points they indeed are simular but they’re still different stories! Are you excited for the Paper Towns movie? Because I am!
