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.

    "What a Waste"

    I'm sorry but this was a waste of money and a waste of time. Not a good story. Dumb is the only the word I can think of to describe it to be honest.

    "Not what I had expected but still great"

    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.

    "No need for "black voice""

    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.

    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.

    "Coming of Age Story With Too Many Metaphors"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Green goes too deep too often. Let's just write a story about a coming of age without a philosophy overtone to it.


    Would you recommend Paper Towns to your friends? Why or why not?

    Nah. It wasn't interesting enough.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Narrator did a great job with the many characters.


    Any additional comments?

    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%!

    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.
