Paper Towns – John Green


John Green is a very famous author and so far my favourite book is Abundance of Katherine’s. Let me know your favourite John Green book in the comments.



The thing about Margo Roth Spiegelman is that really all I could ever do was let her talk, and then when she stopped talking encourage her to go on, due to the facts that:

  1. I was incontestably in love with her, and
  2. She was absolutely unprecedented in every way, and
  3. She never really asked me any questions…

Quentin Jacobsen has always loved Margo from afar. So when she climbs through his window to summon him on an all night road trip of revenge he cannot help but follow. But the next morning, Q turns up at school and Margo doesn’t. She’s left clues to her disappearance, like a trail of breadcrumbs for Q to follow.

And everyone leads to one unavoidable question: WHO IS THE REAL MARGO ROTH SPIEGELMAN?


4/10. As much as I love the books John Green writes this one as more irritating than enjoyable. The fact is I have books where the main plot twist happens at the beginning then there is just a lot of avoidable blah blah then the plot is discovered/ resolved in the last chapter because most of the pages in the middle are unnecessary. I don’t want to spoil the book for anyone so I won’t describe what actually happens. But I feel like if Part Three: The Vessel happened at about page 175 instead of 240 the book would be a lot more interesting and the final conclusion to the book could be more detailed and developed. So basically I enjoyed the plot but Part Two was mostly uninteresting. Even so I can understand why some people do enjoy this book a lot as I adjust a very blunt person and like to skip the gibberish.

Reading Time:

A week. 305 pages. I think that because of the middle section that I didn’t enjoy this book could have been read in a shorter time as I didn’t have the drive to pick it up to finish it.


I would recommend this book if someone was looking for a mystery novel that involves many secrets and questionable actions but it wouldn’t be at the top of my recommended books to read list.

The film?

I will watch the film because I am intrigued to know which aspects of the book it includes and which it doesn’t but again it won’t be at the top of my films to watch list.

(That is right I have a lot of lists)


Please leave your opinions below as I would love to know what you thought about the film.

Thank you for reading!
