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.

    "Makes me smile."

    I didn't have many expectations for this book but I knew it had to be a great one. I read a couple of John Green's other fantastically written books so the hope for it was just that. The book would be fantastic.
    I would recommend this book to anyone that has a thing for a mystery but also likes books with a bit of hope for the characters. I grew up not having much hope for my future so I love reading about that hope I never had.
    It's an overall 5 star book and can't wait to read more of John Green's books in the near future. They never disappoint me, EVER!

    Story
    "Possibly a good book for high school students"

    I downloaded this book several months ago, got halfway through and bored to death , abandoned and forgot it.

    The reviews are good and the book sounds interesting so I absent mindedly tried to order only to find it in my library. Thus encouraged I started over determined to stick with it to the bitter end, sure there must be something there. I never found it.

    The characters are likable but the story is boring. The first quarter is teenage angst, the middle half a prolonged and tedious treasure hunt, and the last quarter philosophy lite.

    I can see it as an interesting book for high schoolers. Otherwise not so much.

    The narration is competent and doesn’t call attention to itself.

    Story
    "Catchy and intriguing"

    There are so many possible endings to this story, yet only one that could make sense for the characters. The 3 parts are well laid out, the intriguing Margo casts a spell on you every time you know more about her and the fact that you think you know about her is best. Everything is there, yet nothing can be seen. It is because Margo keeps it all inside or because no one really understands Margo up until she talks, but will she talk? The answer makes this book great.

    "Where's Margo"
    What disappointed you about Paper Towns?

    You think this strory is going to go somewhere ,sadly it don't . I did not find it laugh out loud like some of the reviews said.


    Has Paper Towns turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not sure


    What does Dan John Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He had perfect narration , made they story better


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Paper Towns?

    The ending ,I didn't like this story ,it was a credit waste

    "Definitely for a younger audience"

    I thought the story took too long to unfold. If I had been reading instead of listening, I probably wouldn't have finished it. I can't believe high school students were so enthralled by "song of Myself " and "Leaves of Grass!" In my opinion, this story was nowhere near the same level as The Fault
    in our Stars!

    Story
    "Young Adult"

    It was good. I liked it. I thought the story line and characters were interesting, but I kept thinking what is the purpose and why this story? and I realized that I had these questions because this is a young abult book. The ideas are immature and the characters were naive. My least favorite character was Ben. Every time I heard him say honey bunnies I wanted to kick him in the shin.

    As for the narrator I felt the role was miss casted. The story is about a senior in high school not a grown man. it made the story awkward and clunky. I do feel that he is a good story teller, though. I just wish it was a different book he was reading.

    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.
