Paper Towns by John Green

Paper Towns

Have you read the Fault in Our Stars? You should! This is a great book and also a movie. John Green is the author. After I read the Fault in Our Stars I knew I wanted to read more about his books. When I heard that another one of his books is going to be a movie I put it on my list. I figured that if I loved Fault in Our Stars I would like anything else he wrote as well.

Paper Towns is the story of Quentin, a senior in high school who is about to graduate. His neighbor, Margo Roth Spiegelman, crawls through his window one night and asks for help. Although the two were very close as children they had not talked much in their teen years. After having an interesting adventure with Margo all over town, Q wakes up the next morning to find her missing. Once he discovers that she has left him some clues, he starts investigating and the story goes from there.

Paper Towns was another quick read and I also enjoyed the move. They did change a few details in the movie which happens but nothing that bothered me too much. The actors were well cast in my opinion which is a good thing.

Paper Towns wasn’t quite as dramatic as the Fault in Our Stars.  The book was funny in parts, suspenseful in others. Most of the story takes place in Orlando, Florida and there are other supporting characters that I did find rather interesting like Quentin’s friends and even his parents.

This is a GREAT book for vacation, a plane ride or if you are in the mood for some young adult fiction about teenagers trying to figure out their world.

Have you read anything by John Green? Have you read Paper Towns?

    I’ve read Paper Towns. It was a good read, but I enjoyed The Fault in Our Stars more. I’ve also read Looking for Alaska. Similar character types in each of his books.
