The latest book on my “I have read” list is: Paper Towns by John Green. I have read “the fault in our stars” last year while it was a hype all around the world and I enjoyed the book. With that book it was most certain that the ending wouldn’t be “happy”, but the storyline is cute and very inspiring. Well let me continue about the book at hand which is “Paper Towns” this summers new hype. The storyline of this book starts off fun with a night with Margot that “Q” (aka Quentin the main character of the book) will never forget. After this night the book gets all mysterious as Margot disappears.
SPOILERS Do not continue reading if you do not want to know things that happen in the book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am warning you !!!!!!!
Do you really want to do this….
Yeah sure go ahead but I warned you there would be spoilers…
What really made me frustrated during basically the entire book is that no one other than Q seemed to (excuse my language) give a shit about the girl who disappeared, this kids in high school prefered planning their outfits for PROM rather than FINDING the girl that DISAPPEARED (ran away) not even her parents went to find her or even tried. Okay okay I get she ran away various time and after you cry wolf all the time people start not believing you but even if she is of legal age and therefore in the eyes of the law a adult that choose to run away, you would think any parent would still feel obligated to find their child. These were my initial frustrations which occurred throughout the entire book, the final frustrating moment came at the end when Q and his friends find Margot in someplace near New York and she ends up not leaving with Q even though she clearly likes him now. This ending got me thinking that Mr. Green does not enjoy writing happy ends.
Overall it was a good book, I still prefer “The Fault in our Stars” but that is my personal opinion of course. I have yet to watch the movie but will post my reactions on that movie once I watch it.
My overall rating for this book is: 3 Stars
