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.

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!

Its All Paper....

What did you love best about Paper Towns?

I like the whole story line. I think that some people might think that fiction stories are just for fun, for when you just want to relax and read a great book, but what a lot of people don't really notice is that a lot of fiction books have a valuable life lesson held within each story. Its just up too us as the reader to find it, paper towns was on of those stories that had a valuable life lesson.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Paper Towns?

One of the most memorable moments of Paper Towns was when Margo decided to leave and Que decided to go find her. Another part that really grabbed me was when Margo said "All the strings inside him broke", that's a very deep line that if not analyzed properly could be easily misinterpreted.

What about Dan John Miller’s performance did you like?

I think that Dan Miller's humor was the best thing about his performance, pretty funny guy every now and then.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

From The Heart Of Margo Spliegelman.

funny and thoughtful

love the story and the presentation of it, could do without all the language, but I get that it's meant for teenagers, and it does that very well, but not being so removed from my teens myself I don't remember so much language growing up.

Disappointing

What disappointed you about Paper Towns?

I expected it to be better. It droned on. . .

If you’ve listened to books by John Green before, how does this one compare?

I really enjoyed The Fault in our Stars, and had higher expectations for this book.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Sometimes it was good and entertaining. Other times it droned on and on.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Paper Towns?

A lot from the middle should be cut out.

Any additional comments?

The beginning of the story was intriguing. It was fun and interesting, when the girl took the main character on their one night's adventure. Then as the story progressed, it started to really drag. The author seemed to fall into self indulgent metaphors. It was like he was trying to be creative and it just came off as boring. I found myself thinking 'who cares?" We were on a cross country road trip, so we continued to listen expecting a pay off at the end. The end of the book did explain several things, but it was not worth the effort it took to get to the end.

It was okay

I really liked "The Fault in Our Stars" but I wasn't as impressed with this story. I thought it was a bit slow and the ending wasn't as exciting as I was hoping.
