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.

A nice novel

I liked the story, kinda complicated though. John Green is the best. I am one book away to read all of them.

Loved the reader!

The reader of this audio book, Jeff Woodman, did an amazing job adding in so many special aspects that it increased how i felt about the story. It was nice not to feel like you were just listening someone read the book, he was truly invested in the story and I felt like I was part of the story. It actually made the book more engaging. I can't say this is one of my favorite John Green books, but it's worth a listen to hear what a great job Jeff does with It!

Not bad. Not great.

I didn't mind listening to this story. It wasn't boring. The main character is a bit unbelievable and the setting was a bit confusing. People were coming in and out of the story like people come from the backstage onto the stage without a real since of how they got there or why they just happened to wind up in that particular place except that the writer needed them to appear. But it's got some good points and if you love John Green, go for it.

Surprisingly Boring

I kept trying to stick with this book. I thought that since it was written by John Green, I would have my own Eureka moment and find myself invested in the characters and plot of this story. Instead, with a couple of hours left I gave up. I am sad that I didn't enjoy this more.

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.

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.<br/> 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.

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.
