Masterfully written by John Green, this is a thoughtful, insightful and hilarious coming-of-age story. Recensie s Imagine a hybrid of Scooby Doo and The Catcher in the Rye and you get a little of this novel's flavour The Financial Times Green's prose is astounding - from hilarious, hyperintellectual trash talk and shtick, to complex philosophising, to devastating observation and truths.

He nails it - exactly how a thing feels, looks, affects - page after page School Library Journal Genuine - and genuinely funny - dialogue, a satisfyingly tangled but not unbelievable mystery and delightful secondary characters Kirkus Reviews.

John Green Looking For Alaska 9, John Green An Abundance of Katherines 6, Graeme Simsion The Rosie Project 3, Green knows these people and has lit them from inside with realism and dimension. A little bit too perfectly quirky. I cannot totally relate or believe in a guy who has invented a mathematical formula calculating the probability that the next Katherine he dates will dump him.

I think it's a creative premise that makes me want to read the book and is extremely well-executed, but if I don't believe in someone, I'm not going to fully feel for them or understand them. This prevents me from enjoying the book as much as I do Margaret Atwood, etc.

Maybe this doesn't bother anyone else, but it bothers me, and I just can't put the guy up on a pedestal. However, however, I fucking loved this book.

And I'm not going to summarize it. It was practically perfect and ridiculously engrossing and extremely fascinating so much so that my adverb use has increased exponentially. If I even tried to give a synopsis, it would trivialize it too much. Green uses Leaves of Grass in a way that made me want to re-read it after having suffered through it in high school and potentially graffiti it all over the United States because: I love Green's use of periods.

Part of why I loved it is for selfish reasons. Margo's struggles are my own, and her hates are my hates. In Quentin deciphering Margo, it helped me realize a lot of things about myself; this is something that would be valuable to anyone who needs to become the wounded man. I enjoyed Paper Towns but did not love it as much as Johns other work.

The ending was not as fulfilling as I hoped. I first read it years ago; back before I'd heard of vlogbrothers, back when John Green was only known by a handful of readers, way way back before The Fault in Our Stars. And I loved it. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.

I know millions loved his tragicomedy about teens with cancer, yet I found it cheesy and contrived, with unrealistic characters who wallowed in their own pretentious philosophy sorry fans, but that's how I felt. And I began to wonder if perhaps his books had always been like that and I'd somehow missed it. If perhaps Paper Towns wouldn't be the way I remembered it. You see, here's some truths about John Green: He's an intelligent writer.

He loves philosophy and he embraces nerddom. And, under it all, he's a romantic. It felt like a book that set out with a mission to be deep, clever, to deliver a multitude of messages, to prove that teenagers are quirky and intelligent. Augustus, especially, seemed built around "intelligence" and "quirkiness" to the point that he didn't feel real; he felt like a caricature of a "philosophical teen". But coming back to Paper Towns made me realise that I hadn't changed.

Unlike TFiOS, these characters feel real. I felt like I was observing real teens living real lives, even though the plot does contain some fantastical elements. But it's because Quentin and his friends feel like teenagers. Many of them are still smart it wouldn't be a JG book if they weren't but they're realistic, silly, horny, and as ridiculous as we all ultimately are. I laughed out loud so many times.

I highlighted so many quotes and then couldn't decide which ones to include in my review. I enjoyed the "depth" of the novel that emerges gradually behind the silliness. The lessons about teen love and growing up and wanting to escape.

In this book, he takes caricatures and stereotypes and peels back the layers of them to reveal the people underneath. Which is, ultimately, the underlying theme of this book:

It is difficult to explain how awesome I found this T-shirt at the time. Margo, as always, biked standing up, her arms locked as she leaned above the handlebars, her purple sneakers a circuitous blur. It was a steam-hot day in March.
