It has been a while since I've published a book review... once again this post has been tucked away in my drafts file for a while so I thought I would dig it back out and finally publish it! I hope you guys don't mind the recent blast from the past photography wise!
Firstly, if you are a fan of Looking for Alaska or An Abundance of Katherines you will more than likely love this book. I know there has been a lot of criticism of these books as they follower similar themes however I applaud John Green on this. He has found a formula that works ad has stuck to it which has brought forward a very loyal fan base of readers for him.
The book centres around the two main characters Quentin and Margo. Without revealing too many spoilers a major event connects both Quentin's and Margo's past. One which leads them to meeting up in the future sharing memories during an all nighter. Shortly after this however Margo vanishes. The rest of the book centres around Quentin's attempts to track down Margo.
One thing I will say about this book, which I didn't find with a lot of John Green's other books is that it did seem to drag on a bit. I found myself skim reading some bits in the middle which I felt could have been expanded on and developed in a much quicker way. The plot and storyline, all be it similar to his previous books, It is, in sorts, a book about following clues and detecting where the story line will take you. Personally as a 20something year old reader I found it an enjoyable light read. I would definitely recommend it for the young YA audience it is intended for.
Have you read any books by John Green? Have you read Paper Towns? If so... what were your thoughts? Let me know in the comments!
