Paper Towns by John Green

  

Hello again everyone!! So if you haven’t heard already another of John Green’s novels is being turned into a movie. I figured it would be a good idea to review the book so you can either read it before it comes out (my personal preference) or just to see if you would want to watch the movie. 

Paper Towns is about Quinten who has been enamored with his beautiful and adventurous neighbor Margo Roth Spiegelman. When Margo comes to his window one night during their senior year of high school to ask for help getting revenge on her boyfriend and the people she thought were her friends, Q can’t refuse. After their wild night of adventure, Margo vanishes. This isn’t particularly unusual for her to do but she always leaves clues as to where she is. Q and his friends begin a search for Margo only going off of highlighted passages in Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. 

John Green has an amazing talent to create these three dimensional characters that actually sound like teenagers. This book has some golden lines in it that just have you rolling on the floor laughing. I really hope these lines are featured in the movie or I am going to be so upset.

So for those of you who read the book, what do you think of the casting?
