Publisher's Summary

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life - dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge - he follows.

After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues - and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew.

Printz medalist John Green returns with the brilliant wit and searing emotional honesty that have inspired a new generation of listeners.

    "Hallow endings"

    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.

    "It was okay"

    I really liked "The Fault in Our Stars" but I wasn't as impressed with this story. I thought it was a bit slow and the ending wasn't as exciting as I was hoping.

    "Good light listen"

    I was laughing out loud at times. I very much enjoyed the reading of it and the story.
    I would recommend as a good light listen, that occasionally makes you think.

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed it. The main character is figuring out clues trying to find a girl. Everything is from his point of view. There aren't any major emotional moments, but it's great at just showing you life for the average upper middle class teen these days in an extraordinary storyline. It does refer to sex and stuff, but it isn't graphic.

    "Not what I expected, in a bad way"

    Not a fan. I LOVED the fault in the stars. But this book is nothing like it. I kept waiting for it to get good and the plot is rather boring. There is all this build to the last chapter where everything unfolds and it's just not worth it. I do not recommend this one, disappointing

    "Love this book and it's them. Great road trip book"

    Really quick audio book that gets even more rich after a the second listen. This is literally the only audio book I have listened to twice and the last part of the book is a perfect for a road trip

    "Heartbreaking"

    This story accounts for the many stories, including one of my own that bears striking similarities. I wished for another ending, one in which it works out but alas, great literature is true to the subject matter. Thank you for the good story. I'm going to go weep now, and reflect upon the fundamental truths hidden in this text.

    Story
    "More than I expected after the description"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. John Green has this way of including many small, soul touching things throughout his books; this was no exception.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is quite romantic, though it isn't likely to be called a romance. There is mystery, but it is not a "mystery". More, a story, mysterious and romantic enough to be interesting, believable enough to draw one along, and full of that sense of longing which is likely to resonate with most readers, whether we have ever experienced it in a situation like Q's or not. This is a fun read. This is a good story. It does not fall into half the cookie cutters we might expect it to. No, instead it maintains much of that unexpected quality real things have.

    Story
    "Difficult to finish."

    I don't enjoy being negative but this story took alot to get through.
    Firstly, I didn't mind the character of Q as I could sympathise with the almost pathetic adoration of somebody when a teenager. However, it was the character he adored that I found so unbearable.
    I don't really see Margot as the free spirited, self-seeking girl that I think the author intended, to be honest I just see her as an incredibly selfish, manipulative megalomaniac. Unfortunately this made the story such a struggle, as his whole quest to find her left me frustrated with him, and their friends, for not seeing that they were essentially doing exactly what such a narcissistic person wanted.
    Perhaps no longer being a teenager means the quirky teen angst is somewhat lost on me, but I actually hope not as I'd hate to think teenagers who are reading this think that it's acceptable to act the way she did.
    On a more positive note, I thought the narrative was fine and rather well acted. I would listen to other stories read Dan John Miller.
    I would also like to add that I have read other John Green books, The Fault in Our Stars and An Abundance of Katherines (which is an excellent, charming read), and I will read more by him, in the hope that Paper Towns is just a dud.

    "Another classic John Greene"

    I read / listened to this off the strength of "The Fault In Our Stars" and have to say that although not 'quite' up there with that book, this has been a pretty good story. The character development is brilliant and I really got behind the main characters. The people you start out not liking (such as Lacey) turn out to be some great characters in the book.
    Off the strength of this book I'm now going to get his other book 'Baked Alaska' or whatever it's called. :)

    I really appreciate the performance of John Miller.
    This is the first novel of John Green I read. I watched movie before the novel.
    There is difference in the story between book and movie. I like the story in the movie more than book.
