A review of Paper Towns (by John Green)

This book is one of John Green’s best books, it was very enthralling and funny, and I laughed out loud about a dozen times. The mystery in Paper Towns is clever, and will leave readers scratching their heads as Quentin and his friends struggle to piece together the clues with some frustration and tons of humor. I could relate to the main character very well, and it was amazing to see him evolve as a character as he tries to piece together the big mystery, and discover more about himself along the way. This book will not disappoint, and it is suspenseful, hilarious, and quirky.


To everyone who surrounds Margo Roth Spiegelman, she is an adventurous, unconventional, and intelligent person and a highly admired someone who everyone raves about. So when Margo sneaks into Quentin Jacobsen’s room one night and involves him in her crazy exploits, he can’t help but feel as if a new page has been turned, and just maybe he can be a part of the marvelous Margo’s life.

But the next morning all of Quentin’s hopes have vanished with Margo’s sudden disappearance. Her parents and the police think this is just another one of her stunts, but Q is not so sure. Margo has left him a string of clues, one right after another, which just might lead him to her. But the thing is, he’s not sure what he’ll find.

This is an honest, funny, and spectacular book from award-winning author John Green. This book is a gem, it’s one-of-a-kind, and there are many twists that are not expected. All of the characters make this book worthwhile, and the ending is not what I expected. This is a great read, and an honest look at how young adults take on life.
