Paper Towns Book Review

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back 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 of the girl he thought he knew.

Finished reading Paper Towns, a novel by John Green. Decided to only start reading this novel after watching the faults of the stars, where it got many awesome reviews. To be honest, it was my first time reading his novel and I thought that certain writing style of his reminded me of Giddens Ko. 

Personally, I felt that this novel was moving yet interesting. Also, it injected mysterious element which turns out rather classic on its own. The story flow quite well though some parts may appear slightly draggy. The few characters that were introduced has its own traits and attitude towards school and relational life. The story was then being build up with different priorities and opinions that each individual character possesses. 

I liked how the different hints left behind by Margo's led Q and her friends locate her. It also got me into participating as well. Also, Margo's content of the diary which was mutually linked to Q's. Everything just came in place together as a piece. 

A rather good and interesting read. Am looking forward watching this film soon! Hope it will be screened in Singapore!
