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.

    "Hallow endings"

    This book was outrageously funny. Smart and witty with true banter between friends. It was interesting enough to make me want to see where the book would go. I found the ending disappointing. It wasn't that it didn't tie up loose ends. Au contrair. It did just not the way I wanted it too. Would I recommend? you bet.

    "Fantastic Read"

    I love everything about this book. The story line was intriguing, it was comical and the narration was off the charts. It definitely kept my attention and I was very sad when it was over. Highly recommend!!

    Story
    "Thick with metaphors"

    Essentially, the story can be summed up as teens trying quantify love and hurt with metaphors. I loved the way everything was overanalyzed to fit new meanings in to used up phrases, but it's not for everyone. A lot of reiteration. Story moves at a snails pace. And I found Margot to be a generally unlikable b*%$^. Despite this, I would recommend it.

    Pleasant and comfortable like an afternoon nap, with poetic characters to elegant to be real.

    "meh"

    a simplistic road trip story. nothing much happens, and the philosophical insights are hardly worth being called philosophical. oh, but the nerds get to bang the hot chicks. and body positive something. so I guess target audience is pleased.

    "I definitely look at the world different now"

    This is a great example of how John Green can write a simple story about complicated people, and challenge the ways that we like to think. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get another perspective on averageness and awesomeness.

    Also the reading was great. I found it easy to listen to.

    Story
    "Another good book ruined by the narrator..."
    Would you try another book from John Green and/or Dan John Miller?

    Yes I would - I love John Green. But I pray he gets a better narrator that better fits the story/characters.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I just couldn't match him as the character. When books are written in 1st Person POV, you want the voice to match, and this one just dragged out, it was too mature, too many pauses while speaking, not enough confidence/assurance.


    Any additional comments?

    John Green is a brilliant writer. Make the narrator match his talent!
