Paper Towns, a book that can take you on an journey to another world of mystery and romance. Quinton, or Q’s world finally changes one night when a girl named Margo, who he’s been crushing on, appeared on his window one midnight. He had to make decisions he’s never made or done before. Q goes on an adventure with the girl he never imagined to be with. After that night, Margo ends up missing and Q thinks that she left clues for him to find her.
In this book from my point of view, i think John Green used point of view very well. The way he used point of view was very descriptive. For example on part two, he wrote, “One the wall with the rolled up carpet, I discovered nine thumbtack holes in the cracked and paint-peeled walls.” This example is so vivid that you can picture it so clearly in your head.
A second example that the way he used imagery to help readers imagine the smell. He wrote,“The lilac shampoo and the almond in her skin lotion and beneath all of that the faint sweetness of skin itself.” When reading this sentence, you can smell the lilac shampoo and almond scent with a faint of sweetness.
Another example of description is “- I rolled out the carpet farther and found a blue knit blanket, almost newspaper thin.” this very descriptive sentence gives us a clear image of how the blanket looks.
The author used point of view to help picture what he’s trying to express through his writing. I enjoyed reading this book because it made me feel different emotions. Suspension, thrilled, lively, and heartbroken.

In Paper Towns, John Green describes setting with incredible detail letting readers create images in their head. When three main characters, Quentin, Radar and Ben walked into an abandoned library on page 145, the author described the place as a “big room filled with a labyrinth of metal shelves.” He told readers there were papers from calendars on the floor that were “yellowing and mouse-bit.” This example that the author used helped to build mystery and create an image in my head. Green described another place the characters ventured to as “two long panes of chest high dirty, gray, plexiglas” leaning on one another. A triangular cubicle, if such a thing is possible” is how the author described another setting in the novel. When reading the triangular cubicle part, I was trying to think more in depth about the settings because it was very important at this point, so this specific detail provided by the author really helped me to understand better. When two main characters, Margo and Quentin, are at the top of a skyscraper, he describes what he sees as, “ flashing DON’T WALK signs at intersections, and the street lights running up and down the city in a perfect grid until downtown ended and the winding streets and cul-de-sacs of Orlando’s infinite suburb started.” This setting that the author described was quite interesting, especially to me because I have personally seen Orlando at night, so I could create an even more vivid image in my head. So, I definitely would recommend this book to you because it makes you feel as though you are right there creating all of these memories with the characters.

Paper towns is a book that takes you on an adventure. It teaches you about loyalty , and friendship. Paper towns guides you to find the real you and not the person people expect you to be. Through the eyes of Quentin Jacobsen we go on this mysterious journey to find the girl he loves.
In the beginning we feel that we are part of the planned revenge which Margo and Quentin execute. Throughout the middle we are enthralled by the clues , and the long drives and dead ends which the protagonist goes through. The ending is short and sweet , but predictable.
In my opinion the book was not as great as the other books written by the author. In my point of view john green should have also added Margo's point of view as it was getting boring seeing the world through Quentin's eyes.
On the whole the book is funny , quirky ,cute and realistic.

This book exactly shows us how cruel this life is and in which falsified world we live.

I liked Paper Towns very much. I found it realistic and engaging, bringing me into the world of Quentin Jacobsen. I enjoyed his search for Margo Roth Spiegelman (my goodness, they say her full name so many times in the book), and found his close-to-obsession amusing. I do think, though, that John Green went a little TOO deep. Sure, I appreciate the deep level of thought, but there is a consistent pattern with all of his books: he indulges a LOT into metaphors, quotes, and other stuff like that; sometimes, it's kind of overwhelming, but the book itself was great.
