So today is another Review Wednesday and I will be reviewing John Green’s 3rd book, Paper Towns. Let’s get to it!
Book title: Paper Towns
Authors name: John Green
Date Published: September 22nd 2009
Number of pages: 305 pages
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.
This story is about a boy called Quentin Jacobsen. He lives in an area in Florida. This story follows Q as he journeys across all parts of America to find his runaway friend, Margo both physically and metaphorically.
Before I go any further in this review, I must say it has been about 8 weeks since I read this book so it may not be very detailed. I am trying to tie up reviews that I need to do. I loved the way this story flowed through each scene and how the pieces of the puzzle fitted together perfectly. It almost appeared like John wrote it backwards to figure out how it would all slot together.
The one thing that I didn’t like was some of the references in the book. I also think that it could’ve delved a bit deeper into the other characters lives so you felt a deeper connection. I have kind of mixed feelings about the ending because… well I would tell you but that would involve spoilers and I am not a spoiler type of person.
I would recommend this book to anyone age 13 and up who loves mystery novels and most of all, loves John Green’s books!
Thanks for reading and see you next week!
PS The release date has been announced! Look for this movie on July 31st 2015. For more information about this movie… read the book 🙂 😛 😉
