Who is the real Margo?
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…
What did I think?
I loved this book. It is such an easy read but also keeps you entertained and hooked at the same time. Green has really proven his worth with this book and at the moment it is going down as one of the books I have enjoyed reading the most.
Green has built the characters up in this book to be so unique and individual that you have no choice but to fall in love with them and root for their causes. Not only this, but there is a great depth to Paper Towns that you don’t really has been worked in throughout until you finish reading it.
For the Young Adult genre, I really think that Green has it down to a ‘T’. It is definitely a book I would recommend to everyone to read and I am looking forward to reading his other books. If they’re as good as Paper Towns I know I can’t go wrong!
Compared to the film?
As always…I read the book before I watched the film. It’s important to me because you read the story how it should be from the start before the scripts have been tweaked for the big screen. Unfortunately I was really disappointed with the film. I really think they went off in completely the wrong direction. They didn’t quite build the characters up as they did in the film and the most frustrating of all…IT’S BEEN TOLD WRONG. Events that occurred in the book had meaning and a whole back-story whereas the film kind of just chucked them all together. If you’ve watched the film and enjoyed it then you should most definitely read the book!
