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’s been a little while since I’ve written a review, and this won’t be a typical review covering all the aspects a thorough review should cover, but here’s my thoughts nonetheless…

This is my second John Green book. It probably won’t be hard to guess the first – The Fault in Our Stars. I had some very mixed feelings about that book, but I won’t go into them right now since this isn’t a review of that book. LOL! But, I was curious how I would feel about any of his other books. Would they contain any of the elements that put me off and kept me from enjoying The Fault in Our Stars as thoroughly as I might have without those elements?

So, when I saw that Paper Town was being made into a movie (I like comparing books & movies), I went ahead and decided it was time to see. The verdict is, that I’m very glad I did. I really enjoyed this book! It was witty and comical and had lots of deep thoughts to ponder along the way. It has substance. Did I agree with every sentiment the characters believed in? No. But, the book doesn’t ever feel like it was trying to cram anything down my throat at any point either. Ultimately, I highly recommend this one!

I really enjoy novels with substance. Books that make you think. I enjoy the feels of a good romance, but I don’t want a romance just for romance’s sake. I want the substance – something bigger. So, if you have any recommendations I’d love to hear them!

Happy Reading,

Alison
