“My god, John Green can write a book. Seriously, if he wrote about the phone book I'd buy it. He is an amazing young adult author. His characters are fantastic and honest. They're reality at it's finest. Well, maybe not the situations, but how they are dealt with and the emotions behind them. You...”see full review » see other reviews »
“Great for deeper thinking and contemplating how we appear and view ourselves and others. I loved the ending”Chloe wrote this review 1 hour ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Well written book about finding a girl who doesn't want to be found, Green adds in plenty of one-liners and snarky remarks to keep the dialogue interesting and to make readers laugh; I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one.”Allison Rychtanek wrote this review 2 hours ago.

“This is definitely one of John Green's best books. This was the last book of his that I had to read, and it did not disappoint. Where L4A and Katherines left much to be desired as far as plot action, this one was very compelling to read as Q tried to solve the Margo mystery. It had a great balance of adventure and wonder as well as real-world issues and "Thoughts From Places"-type speeches. That being said, it was no TFiOS, but very few books are. Paper Towns is honestly a great read and it will satisfy anyone with even the slightest thirst for adventure.”Rita Castagna wrote this review 8 days ago.

“Oh, God, I love John Green.
It started as a normal story. It seemed kind of trivial. But I'm glad that I kept reading.
It is wonderful how he incorporates so many quotes and uses the perfect metaphors that make the book joyous and delightful.
I love how he unwraps the character of Margo and contrasts the actual Margo with Quentin's Margo.
Similarly to Moby Dick, Quentin at the end did not even mattered anymore. His mind was only programmed to find, love and decipher Margo, or at the least the person who he thought she was.
It is only something about the other characters, that makes me think the book is not ' complete '.
I loved it, it is only that I did not care that much about the others, I will give 4/5 stars.

“I really liked this. I wish that YA authors could realize that they don't have to swear to make it "realistic" for teens. ”Amie wrote this review 13 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Another excellent John Green novel with a young adult angle that only teens would get. Excellent realistic and eye-opening ending.
Quentin Jacobson makes an odd connection with a former classmate, Margo Roth Spiegelman, whose strange disappearance lead Quentin on a journey to find out who Margo really is, not who people think she is. Quentin learns that people are not always what they seem to be from the outside and that it takes a leap of faith to break that mold.”
