Paper Towns – by John Green

16 04 2015

I DEFINITELY read fiction far faster than non. My previous book was about 100 pages and took me about a month. This one was about 300 pages and I read it in less than a week!

This is my third John Green book now. I’ll be honest, I picked it up because I saw it cheap and my housemate had said they were making a film of it this year, quite similar to The Fault in Our Stars I guess.

The story is about a Quentin and Margo who grew up next to each other as kids, but drifted apart as she became one of the cool kids and he did not. We meet them towards the end of Senior year of high school (yes, American author!). Margo appears at Quentin’s window one night needing to borrow his car (and him as a driver) for a night of revenge pranks. The next morning, she’s gone, and there are just clues left as to where she might be. Cue Quentin (with a little help from his friends) trying to solve the puzzle and find her! Almost like a teen mystery story I suppose!

As with John Green’s other books, the more I read, the more I wanted to read, until at the end, again, I couldn’t put it down. I’ve put a link to the film trailer below if that’s more your sort of thing! (Although Margo isn’t at all how I pictured her to be!)
