I recently finished reading Paper Towns by John Green. The narrator is a high school student named Quentin who has a crush on his neighbour Margo Roth Spiegelman. One night she shows up at his window and takes him on an adventure around town. The next day she disappears, leaving some clues behind about where she has gone. Quentin becomes obsessed with tracking her down, with the help of his friends.
The book is a bit far away from my usual tastes - I normally only read YA if it crosses into my preferred genre of science fiction. So I wouldn’t really have chosen to read this book up until recently when I got caught up in nerdfighteria and decided that I should check out at least one of John Green’s books. My choice of this one was rather arbitrary, it came up first in the Kindle store when I was searching for him!
I did enjoy the book though, more so perhaps than I had expected I would. It was very well written with interesting characters, and I loved the mystery aspect of the plot. I can definitely see why John Green is so highly acclaimed. Indeed, I will probably read another of his novels (not sure which one yet) in the near future, because I liked this one a lot and I would like to see what else he has done.
