Review: Paper Towns
Author: John Green
Release Date: 9/22/2009
Summary From B&n.com:
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 the girl he thought he knew.
This book was very disappointing. The summery makes it sound very good, and the mystery covers up the badly written story line and gets you all excited for a big nothing.
This from a guys point of view. It's about this guy named Quentin who has had a crush on his neighbor Margo Roth Spiegelman for his whole life. One crazy night with Margo makes him think that things can change things between them, but then she is just gone.
Quentin is very determined. Margo Roth Spiegelman sound and acts spunky, but she is a coward. Ben, Quentin's friend is a condescending pig. The word honey bunny makes me so mad.
It was not very well written. It was always traveling off the story line. The ending sucked. This looked like it was going to be a very good book but it was not. The characters and storyline was not very well developed.
This book was an overall disappointment. With badly written storyline and characters, condescending pigs, the word honey bunny, cowards, and a bad ending.
