Happy World Book Day; Book Review: Paper Towns


Happy World Book Day! I love reading and want to celebrate by sharing another book review with you! Paper Towns by John Green. Read on to find out what I thought about it. 



Are you looking for an easy beach read? Look no further than John Green’s Paper Towns. 

The synopsis via the publisher:
"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..."
My thoughts?

This was a good read; the dialogue between all the characters is great. I laughed at many parts in this book. John Green was able to paint a perfect picture of the personalities of the characters and the complexities around each character.

This story is very young-adult (YA) but can easily be translated into life situations. The main characters are getting ready to graduate high school but I graduated college not too long ago – I was able to relate to all their feelings they had about leaving, wanting adventure and the future.

My Rating:

On a scale of 1 to 5 (one being the worst and 5 being the best), I would rate it a 4. It was a quick read and the characters were relatable. I, however, didn’t really care for the character, Margo Roth Spiegelman too much.
