On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun - but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl.
Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself by Printz medalist John Green, acclaimed author of Looking for Alaska.

I really enjoyed the story, plain out. Just the meaning to it. The way John explains what it is to want to be remembered, but not to have to be remembered.
I also loved the way the narrator got all the voices down, I feel like it really added to the experience.
More for the younger crowd, particularly kids who want to be nerds. Seems to be a trend not based in reality. Or maybe the definition of nerd has changed...
loved it. Classic Green humor. deep evolving characters. just amazing. a nice pick me up book.
This book has some charming passages and adorably awkward teenage angst. By the time we finally hear the list of Katherine's, I almost wish the whole 1-19 thing had been left out. By that time they (as a group) were irrelevant. But, it was a nice listen for a long drive.
