I know I have been absent a lot recently and if you follow my sister blog Saxoobeat you will know why, but with all the spare time I’ve had in hospital, I’ve had plenty of time to read. Therefore, it’s time that I review one of the many books I have read recently.
An Abundance of Katherines is a YA book about Colin Singleton; a child prodigy who is now afraid of now ‘meaning’ anything in life. He also has a particular type in girls, that type being Katherines. This book tells the story of how Colin learns how to get over a difficult relationship and how to deal with the prospect of not being famous and not being known in the world.
This is the third book I’ve read by John Green, the first two being The Fault in our Stars and Looking for Alaska respectively, and I didn’t really have high hopes as I felt that Looking for Alaska was a serious drop from The Fault in our Stars and I had suspicions that An Abundance of Katherines was going to suffer the same fate.
However, I was pleasantly surprised; okay it wasn’t anywhere near as good as The Fault in our Stars was but it wasn’t overly bad either. An Abundance of Katherines was a nice medium between the two (just Paper Towns to read now).
I would recommend this book, but only to readers who find it easy to get absorbed into a book, as An Abundance of Katherines took me a while to get absorbed into!
Keep reading xox.
