Publisher's Summary

When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.

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.

(P)2006 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

    "Teenagers only"

    As a grown up this book was pretty boring and annoying. Would not recommend for adults.

    Story
    "Ohh the Katherines!"

    This story is so funny, the main character being a child prodigy who has a creepy liking to people named Katherine. The side character who is super lazy and insists on telling all the kentuckianites that he is not a terrorist apon first seeing them.The story isn't about a job, or about a road trip, or about a theorem, or about 19 girls named Katherine. It's about the moments shared and the lessons learned.

    John Green you have done it again!

    "Funny and deep. All at once."

    Great characters. Extremely funny. Deals with who are we and why and can we change. Performance was excellent.

    Any additional comments?

    Told like only Green can...a story about young love, friendship and coming of age in a world that seems unbearable at times. A new favorite of mine!

    "Really??!!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This must be YA that I picked up in error.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing by John Green


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jeff Woodman?

    Jeff Woodman is the only good thing about this book.


    What character would you cut from An Abundance of Katherines?

    Oh, maybe Colin, his parents, or maybe Hassan.

    "Wonderful Story"

    Loved the story (and the moral). The reader is one of the best I've heard. You'll be thinking of Collin and Hassan long after their adventure ends.
