It was good but a little predictable and even tho it was profound at times i wasnt super happy w the ending. I've heard that Whitman poem referenced before so was really cool to see it in a different light. I can't remember where I've heard it before... maybe it'll come back to me. My review might be a little negative but I read it in two days so I don't have much room to talk, haha. Sorry to my employers for reading so much of it at work :P

John Green's funniest but least intelligent book by far. There are a lot of great ideas in An Abundance of Katherines (the Rejection Minimization Theory being my favorite), but the book lacked the more intelligent side that his other books possessed. This was especially ironic because the book is about a genius. Still, it was a fun read, and recommended if you liked any of his other stuff.

Paper towns dragged a little, in comparison with his other books, and gave me the sense that he was trying a little too hard to have a really meaningful finish, but was still enjoyable and interesting. I feel that this book is good for young people who thing that a road trip is the coolest thing in the world, but I suppose anyone could enjoy it. Don't expect to fall in love with Margo Roth Spiegelman... I didn't.

I find Green’s stuff to be meh. Like it’s not the worst stuff I’ve read but not the best y’know. He’s definitely has his niche. Last one of his books I read was Paper Towns when the movie was coming out and I didn’t really like that one either. Then again I had only read it at the request of my friends. Main reason I was reading this one was mostly just to give it another try and unlike Paper Towns, I thought I’d actually like this one. Was somewhat surprised to find out I enjoyed reading Paper Towns more.

But with this one, the plot just carried on towards nowhere. It had a mystery aspect to it that was interesting but it was barely touched on in comparison to lackluster romance. One pro of it was the mental health aspect. The main character has OCD and the way her inner dialogue is written really showcases her struggles with it well. I do think that does have to do with John having OCD himself, not that his experience is the exactly the same as the character’s. Overall it was somewhat disappointing as the characters are likable even with their flaws. Granted, while I don’t think teenagers about to go to college are quoting academia as directly to the source as the ones in his book are, the dialogue is still realistic despite it. Like I can see people having the conversations they have.
