Review for Paper Towns by John Green

"Paper Towns"
Author: John Green
Publisher: Penguin Group
Source: Public Library
305 pages

 When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows her. Margo’s always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she’s always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they’re for Q. - Summary from Goodreads

   Ok, I think I want to get this out right away. I had only one problem with this book. The language used and some situations (I felt awkward with). I know this is how people talk in general (foul language and stuff) but I'm one who doesn't so it kinda bothered me. I normally wouldn't continue reading the book (because it does occur through the entire book) but man, the stoyline was so good I had to keep reading to find out what happened! So yah, that was that and I tried to skip over some words in there. Besides that I enjoyed this book entirely. It has lots of buildup and by the end I was ready to scream 'GET TO THE EXPLANATION!!' It had just the right amount of humor also. The roadtrip they took I found was laugh out loud...seriously lol. Like I said before the storyline is amazing and John Green did an amazing job conveying how Q felt throughout this (mostly) emotional journey. It is truly "Profoundly moving" as SLJ said. The ending was touching and suprised me. It did the job! Great book.....I recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind the language! I gave it four stars!

      It was May fifth, but it didn’t have to be. My days had a pleas­ant identicalness about them. I had always liked that: I liked routine. I liked being bored. I didn’t want to, but I did. And so May fifth could have been any day—until just before midnight, when Margo Roth Spiegelman slid open my screenless bedroom window for the first time since telling me to close it nine years before.........(adventure starts :D :D)
