Book Review: Paper Towns by John Green

I admit, I am indeed very late in terms of reading the book or watching the movie. The hype on this has died down more or less, though this book is labelled under mystery, it does not fall into the same category as the likes of more renowned mystery authors like James Patterson. Instead, Green takes you on a written scavenger hunt rather than describing the process of how bodies are being chopped up. The book mainly centres around Quentin or Q who supposedly thinks that he is madly head over heels for Margo Roth Spiegelman. Margo is a rather intriguing character with a penchant for disappearing to various places within the United States and leaving clues in order to instigate hullaballoo among those around her. Margo’s latest disappearance causes an even greater uproar even though readers might think that those around her should be accustomed to it. Overall, I found this book an enjoyable read, Green takes readers on a written scavenger hunt as you go along which adds to the mystery of the book. Furthermore, the themes were relatable and I enjoyed Green’s use of humour toliven up the written scavenger hunt. I shall not reveal too much about the book, as I do not wish to spoil this book for any impending readers. The book isn’t too pricey either, so for anyone looking for a good read these holidays, paper towns is a good one to pick up.
