Paper towns – John Green

I wanted to give John Green another go and decided upon Paper Towns. I love a good happy ending and I have noticed that John Green doesn’t necessarily agree with that. Don’t get me wrong he is a great writer but his stories don’t always hit right with me.

What is the book about?
The thing about Margo Roth Spiegelman is that all I could ever do was let her talk, and when she stopped talking encouraged her to go on, due to the facts that 1. I was incontestably in love with her, and 2. She was unprecedented in every way, and 3. she never really asked me any questions. Quentin Jacobsen has always loved Margo from afar. So when she climbs through his window to summon him on an all-night road trip of revenge he cannot help but follow. But the next morning, Q turns up at school and Margo doesn’t. She’s left clues to her disappearance, like a trail of breadcrumbs for Q to follow.
And everything leads to one unavoidable question: Who is the real Margo?

What did I think? 

I liked this book more than I thought I would. I adored Quentin and Margo. I liked the journey that Q went on and how he not only found Margo but also himself and how he started to notice how much his friends cared for him.

I wanted them to end up together. Turned out they didn’t. I know this is realistic but I do not necessarily want realistic in books. The ending made the whole thing sad as you invest time into these people and their relationship. Nevertheless, I did like the book and would recommend it to anyone who finds it interesting.


Have you read Paper Towns, or seen the movie?


Lots of love,
