Paper Towns ~Review

"If you don't imagine, 
nothing ever happens at all."

Back of book:
When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night-- dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge-- he follows her. Margo's always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she's always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q... until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they're for Q.

Paper Towns by John Green was a page turner for sure. From the first encounter with Margo Roth Spiegelman, it was easy to tell how quickly readers would be sucked into the pages. From chapter one all the way to the countdown of the clock, I was right on the edge of my seat.

This book had so many moments that were absolutely priceless. From Ben needing to pee while they drive cross country, and Radar's family secret, the entire book was filled with all the qualities you see in everyday people. The Truth is, this book hit all the right buttons to make it seem.... almost realistic, at least, thats how we want it to be.

Each character had their little quirks about them. Authors often get too caught up in the story and forget to develop the characters. But that's not so for John Green, his characters were all so well developed I felt I had actually met them in high school. (Of course, they go by different names in my life, but still the thought still counts.)

Perhaps it was because I was enjoying the book so much that I had high expectations for the ending. However; I felt that as soon as Q found Margo, the book just kinda fizzled out. I didn't enjoy the ending.

I felt that it wasn't at all what readers were expecting and personally I was a bit disappointed. I read through three hundred pages of amazing book material only to lead to the flop ending, with morals and lessons to be taken out of the book.

Even so, I did enjoy the book and despite the ending, I would still recommend this book to anyone in need of an adventure that doesn't lead in romance. It was an enjoyable read and a quick read too.   :)

Good job, John Green, another good book! For those of you who haven't read any of his other books, I suggest you hop to it. John Green does an excellent job of capturing the "teenage" spirit. His books may make you cry, or have you smiling like an idiot, like I did at the end of this book. Highly recommend John Green to all readers.
