Publisher's Summary

When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.

On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun - but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl.

Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself by Printz medalist John Green, acclaimed author of Looking for Alaska.

(P)2006 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

    "Really??!!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This must be YA that I picked up in error.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing by John Green


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jeff Woodman?

    Jeff Woodman is the only good thing about this book.


    What character would you cut from An Abundance of Katherines?

    Oh, maybe Colin, his parents, or maybe Hassan.

    Middle aged man, relatively low mileage.

    Story
    "Just could not get into it"

    First, Jeff Woodman's narration is fantastic. And I enjoyed the author's skill in quirky dialogue. But about 3/4 of the way through I turned it up to 1.5 speed just to get through it faster.

    "Very funny and well written"

    Alternately silly, funny, and slightly intellectual. Great concept and well written - - just a little short on plot. More just needed to happen to earn that fifth star. Narrator was excellent.

    "For kids only"

    More for the younger crowd, particularly kids who want to be nerds. Seems to be a trend not based in reality. Or maybe the definition of nerd has changed...

    Story
    "Enjoyable"

    This was just a light, funny and sweet story, where nothing much happened, but the characters were likable and the writing was good. I actually laughed out loud several times, and I hardly ever do that while listening to books. It's probably a YA book, and I'm a long way from being in that age group, but I still enjoyed it. I especially liked Hassan, the Muslim sidekick, who, while he was always the jokester, made it clear how uncomfortable it can be for a Muslim in our society.

    Story
    "Weakest book by John Green"
    What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He didn't have a lot to work with but his voice was good for narration. I liked his tone changes. I'm not sure I would have gotten through the book if I had been reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    That was a rather weak story. Filled with the word fugger, to get away with swearing in a teen novel. The characters reminded me of the main characters in Looking for Alaska by the same author. They fit into neat little stereotypical boxes.
    I am happy it was a short book and that I got it on an audible sale or I wouldn't have bothered finishing it. There was nothing unique about the story, it was filled with a lot of talking and not a lot of plot or character development. While the idea of a mathematical formula that could predict relationships is kind of interesting it did not need to be an entire story.

    Story
    "Weird but interesting YA coming of age story"

    This YA adult story focuses on a recently graduated young genius who angsts over losing his latest girlfriend and reaching the ripe-old-age of 18 without making his mark on the world. Sure, he's brilliant and knows lots of stuff--but what good is that? So he and his best friend (love him) take a road trip and discover things about life and themselves when they land in a small town. Warnings for crude language, cursing, and sexual references. It was weird, but I liked it.
