Note: This is my review copied and pasted from my GoodReads account.
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs 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 the girl he thought he knew…
i dont wike it.
Okay, so Im going to keep that little review up there because I like that little snippet and…
I really did not like this book. Like, Quentin was a great character. I just hate what happened in this book. It seems like this great adventure, and Im sure that for many people it was. For me though, it wasn’t. The story fell flat, and I wasn’t really invested in the story. The only part I like in this book is when they left. Like, thats all.
I do like some of the quotes in the story though. Paper Towns is very quotable.
When it all comes down to what I thought of this book, I think: the book is about a guy who likes a girl who happens to be emotionally unavailable. And she then uses him. And then when he does something that she doesnt like, she turns back to him and says “You used me too. We used each other.”
You know that feeling you get when you see something and you just dont like it? And it seems like you dont like it for a reason? That is what happened when I finished reading this book..
ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT PAPER TOWNS AND I DO NOT GET ALONG. AT. ALL.
I gave Paper Towns, 2 of 5 stars on GoodReads.
