Yes, I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend. The books performance was quite well. The narrators expressions just made the text come to life. The storyline was also really well written. I love how the ending wasn't just another cliché ending, it was more realistic, which I liked.
This book just made me laugh throughout. On the other hand it kept me on my toes, it always made me want to keep hearing more of the book. I wanted to finish, but on the other hand I didn't

This book was outrageously funny. Smart and witty with true banter between friends. It was interesting enough to make me want to see where the book would go. I found the ending disappointing. It wasn't that it didn't tie up loose ends. Au contrair. It did just not the way I wanted it too. Would I recommend? you bet.
Ok story, but really more appealing to the teenage mind. It has a semi-interesting mystery storyline, yet a little too simplistic to be believable, even as fiction.

Self-absorbed, privileged, well-educated, upper middle class characters angsting about their existence? Sounds like my home town!
I actually enjoyed this book a great deal but the ending left me feeling blah.
I decided to round up because this audiobook narrator was amazing, simply stunning. My favorite was Radar's voice but he managed to make all perfectly unique. Awesome reader, I'll be looking for him in the future.
Nice, quick listen.
Yes. It was a nice, quick listen. It was entertaining. The narrator was good, but I found his Margo voice really annoying. I enjoyed the characters and the story, but found the end to be somewhat disappointing.
Probably Q. Lacey and him seemed like the most real character. I felt like the other characters seemed like caricatures and didn't really seem very well rounded.
Not completely. I started listening to it at work. I had to stop due to working (lol), and ended up finishing it after I got off work and woke up. I did finish it in less than a day though.
The story kept me engaged. It is definitely a young adult novel, but I could still enjoy it. I thought it had some relevancy for young adults in almost any age.
I might compare it to a Separate Peace. The characters in both novels have to find their own places in the world. Both books deal in some ways to the other. Although Paper Towns kind of justifies the abandonment of those who are different or adventurous for the sake of security.
I don't think I could have listened to the book without a good reader. He is definitely a good reader.
Reality is what you make it to be.
an interesting story about people you care about.
I don't believe real people would react the way they did in this story.
the narrator was fine.
Anger and disappointment. I listen at work, my 14 yr old son works with me. He loved fault in our stars. so we listened to leaving alaska. it was just okay. this was frustrating. Real people would not act like this. I hated everyone in the book. margot is probably a sociopath. she is a selfish, brat.

Different voice talent.
He had an odd cadence. He sounded like he was reading the book to a 4 year-old. There was no natural style to the dialogue and each character sounded roughly like the same person. On top of that, he just had a boring, milk-bubble voice.
Not my favorite book by the author, that would be The Fault in our Stars, but a great listen nonetheless. If you like the author, you'll like this book.

Teenage adventure and revelation.
John Green captures teenaged ness in spirit though stories of things that are generally fantastic, unrealistic, and yet somehow totally believable.
