Quentin Jacobson 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?
I’ve owned Paper Towns for years after I read The Fault in Our Stars I went on a John Green spree, but then I read Looking for Alaska and I hated it and so I never really decided to read any more of his books. Then a few months ago I read An Abundance of Katherine’s and I really liked that and so thought that I may as well give Paper Towns a try.
I liked Paper Towns but it isn’t a book that I would read over and over again, overall it seemed pretty average and without much thought put into it.
I found Q to be a very boring character and Margo to be stereotypical and clichéd, which is something I have noticed about the girls that feature in John Green books.
I do not think this book lived up to hype it received, but again you cannot fault John Green’s writing (just maybe the story).
Other people may enjoy this book but unfortunately, it just wasn’t for me. Yes, it was a good read; it just wasn’t a ‘wow’ read!!
Until next time…
Keep reading xox.
