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... (Goodreads)
I had planned to read the book, but ended up listening to the audiobook for Paper Towns instead. I’m actually really glad I did, because the audiobook was awesome. Dan John Miller did a really great job of narrating the book, especially with the different scenario’s and character voices throughout the book. I don’t always click with narrators in audiobooks, but Miller did a great job, and really held my interest throughout.
There were a lot of great things that I really enjoyed about Paper Towns, including the main characters, Quentin and Margo, and even the secondary characters as well. The storyline for the book was really interesting, and while I didn’t *love* the ending of the book, it was definitely a more realistic ending than what I had expected when I first started it. There were also so many funny moments throughout the book that made me giggle as I listened to the audiobook. I know a lot of this was the book, but a lot came from how Dan John Miller narrated as well.
Overall, I really enjoyed Paper Towns more than I expected to. I went into the story with low expectations, because it seems that people either really liked the book, or they really didn’t. Despite a few issues that I had with the book, I still found it to be a very enjoyable read. I’m really looking forward to reading more by John Green in the future, and I’m super excited to see the movie for Paper Towns once it’s released in theaters!!
