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.

I was determined to read the book before I saw the movie (unlike most people today.) I didn't have time to sit down and read because of how busy I am, so I figured what better way than to listen on audiobook that way I can still multitask and eventually watch the movie. As for the book: I won't lie the ending made me tear up it really surprised me how it all wrapped up, but it still left me quite content about the two main characters. I think the overall story was very interesting and well written and I will definitely recommend this book to my friends and family, I have yet to read more John green books, but I'm familiar with his other work and think he's a great writer and simply a genius when it comes to creative thought processing and coming up with things that are out of the ordinary. Which is what I would label this book it's unique, unlike your typical teen novel and I really admire that.
It was weird and made me uncomfortable every time the narrator spoke for Radar. He didn't change his voice for the female characters. Very odd directing and voiceover choice.
I like the book why it's different and in a good way different ! The romance was funny much too much and not to Little. Interesting story cool characters and just amazing ! Couldn't leave this book until I was finished!
Lover of life!
Green, what else can I say...he is a master storyteller. He gives you the feels because he writes directly into the heart of the reader.
Green goes too deep too often. Let's just write a story about a coming of age without a philosophy overtone to it.
Nah. It wasn't interesting enough.
Narrator did a great job with the many characters.
Margo was a jerk. Green wanted to set you up to believe one thing about her, and then hit you with the truth, which was exactly what happened to Quentin as well. [Spoiler ahead] In the end, he takes the ultimate journey and wastes some of the best weeks of his life for a kiss. It's sad, really.
While there were just a few time where I wanted to skip head I did not. Because as soon as I wanted to I was hooked again. Favorite book by John Green so far, it just passed up Looking For Alaska. I recommend it 100%!
As far as YA books go, there are many that I would pick over this one. This would also not be my first book recommendation by John Green. It is still good, but there is nothing special about it.
Lacey and Marcus were my two favorite characters, and they are only side characters. I just preferred them over Q and Margo (who I didn't like very much)
His voice was WAY to deep and old sounding for a book with a teenage boy as its narrator.
