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.

    Story
    "Very Whiney"
    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    One of the characters has a thing about capitalizing letters. The narrator, instead of just reading the words as they are (ex. "That"), says "capital T. that". It got annoying when a list written by this character was read


    Was Paper Towns worth the listening time?

    Very anticlimactic. I was disappointed with the writing (relied heavily on poetic interpretation)

    Story
    "Engaging YA"

    Overall I enjoyed this audiobook. I had two complaints. One was about the story and the other about the audiobook itself.

    First, the narrator sounded more like someone reading a book aloud than someone telling a story. This wasn't bad, but different from other audiobooks I've listened to.

    Second, the story dragged in places for me. I saw connections in the story that the characters sometimes did not see for several chapters. This was incredibly frustrating, but I find this happens a lot when reading YA novels.

    In the end I would recommend this audiobook.

    Story
    "Looking for Alaska, Version 3"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It's a John Green book so yes, yes, I do recommend Paper Towns.

    But I will say that I was disappointed with


    Would you be willing to try another book from John Green? Why or why not?

    Yes. Because it's John Green.

    I first met John Green like most people meet John Green, through YouTube. He doesn't know me but I certainly feel like he's a friend of mine. In truth, he's the only "celebrity" I would even consider meeting on purpose, but I digress. When I watched John and his brother Hank on their YouTube channel, vlogbrothers, I was compelled to love them by their awesomeness. It sounds cliche but these guys are awesome and they are filled with awesomeness. When I found out John was an author I knew I was going to read him and I knew I was going to like him. And I do.

    But seriously, prior to this book I read Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherine's and both, despite their similar characters which is further mirrored in Paper Towns, I liked quite a bit. After reading Paper Towns, I've read Will Grayson, Will Grayson which was really good. Now, I'm looking forward to reading the acclaimed The Fault In Our Stars. So, yes, I think I'm very willing to get John Green another shot even if I find Paper Towns my least favorite.


    What three words best describe Dan John Miller’s voice?

    Can I get another question?


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope, I've said my peace.

    "Not for kids!"

    Even though this book is in the Audible Kids section, it contains really foul language, including the F word. It isn't something I want my kids to read. I wouldn't have bought it if I'd known, so I'm writing this to warn others.
