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…
It seems that everyone loves this book except for me. I thought it was just okay. Maybe I’m too old and far removed from the lives of high school Seniors, but I don’t think that’s it at all. I remember my teenage years very fondly but these kids just seemed too immature, particularly Ben. If I had to hear (I had the audio version) him say “honey bunnies” one more time I think I might have thrown up. Margo got on my nerves because she was so full of herself, even Quentin got on my nerves for acting so gaga over Margo. Radar was the only one that was reasonable.
I’m glad I listened/read it because I do like the author, John Green, and have another of his books on the top of my TBR pile.
The movie of PAPER TOWNS is out now but I won’t be wasting money on a ticket any time soon.
