I really enjoyed this book!

John Green is a very popular author among youth readers. His very popular "Paper Towns" is a drama about Quentin Jacobsen, a normal high school student. He has two best friends, but is otherwise not very popular. He happens to be pining after the popular, attractive, and enigmatic Margo Roth Spiegelman. One day she goes missing, and he embarks on an investigatory quest to find her. It is very clear that Green tries to achieve depth and symbolism with Paper Towns, but the honest truth is that it just falls flat. He does, however, craft characters who feel distinct in their personalities, and provides some very effective comic relief. He successfully examines the world of high school, its hierarchy and intricacies.
Unfortunately, Paper Towns tries too hard to be deep and symbolic, that it all comes off as shallow. Much of this can be attributed to one of the worst endings I've read. The chapters leading up the end are also nonsensical, over the top, and contrast the more grounded middle section of the story. The one thing that brings this novel down is the character of Margo Roth Spiegelman, my least favourite fictional character in recent years. I'll put it like this: nothing she says or does makes remotely any sense. She just exists to embody the rebellious, adventurous, and unintelligent nature of the stereotyped teenager. The novel seeks to be an intriguing character study of Margo, but by the end, we have more questions about her than answers, and I disliked Margo when I was supposed to like her. The best part of the novel is the middle portion, which is an investigatory detective tale, and delivers some compelling twists. But everything that Green builds up in the middle goes to waste as the quality of the novel spirals down until finally crashing to the ground when it ends. Throughout the novel, I saw that Green was obsessed with metaphors and symbols, that they became very obvious and uninteresting, and saturated the novel with unnecessary philosophy. Overall, fans of Green may enjoy Paper Towns, but those looking for a compelling drama should probably look elsewhere.

Its really a nice story, its mostly about like not everything you see is what it really is or your expectation of something is not what really you expected it to be and also on how love could really control you that you'll do anything for love. But I was a bit dissapointed of the ending part and also there are unecessary parts in the story But its a really good story still.

While the book at times is decently written and funny, it has a plot that is completely pointless.
John Green seems to only have one story to tell, and its not a very good one at that. Both this
book and Looking For Alaska have the same storyline and basic structure. Nerdy guy falls in love with troubled girl that doesn't like him back, some sort of prank, girl leaves, boy is sad, boy tries to sort out his emotions about girl, some sort of prank, boy realizes girl never liked him. There is little more to the story then that.
There is no message or higher meaning of any sort within these pages. Green's books seem to only be popular as he writes about teens for teens. I find it hard to imagine that any frequent reader above the age of 14 would enjoy Paper Towns.

Great book, it really gives you a new perspective on life. There are basically three parts to the book. The beginning, fast paced fun and exciting. The long middle mystery, kind of drawn out and gives perspective. The climax. The writing is clever and funny. Awesome book.

i think this book was very good. i liked the mystery of Q not knowing where Margo was. I didnt like the ending because i wanted Margo to go back home with Q instead of moving to new york.

After reading Paper Towns by John Green, I give it a rating of four stars. The book is a pretty quick read. I liked pretty much everything about this book except for the ending. Personally, I thought the ending could have been written much better. The ending didn’t answer all of the questions I had. It just left me there wondering. I also didn’t like how Margo’s parents didn’t want her to come back home after she ran away. I couldn’t believe that they got new locks on the doors on their house. It’s sad that her parents really didn’t want her back. I did like the fact that Quentin, or Q, was a nerd. He wasn’t one of the popular kids like Margo Roth Spigelman was. I also like the very beginning of the book where Q and Margo find a dead man in the park. It really helps the readers understand why the popular Margo picked nerdy Q to accompany her on her mission to get revenge on people who have hurt her. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Margo and Q go on their little adventure sneaking into people’s houses, leaving fish in people’s cars, shaving off someone’s eyebrow, and breaking into Sea World. My other favorite part is when Q and his friends skip graduation to go to New York to find Margo. It is pretty funny some of the things they do in the car. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a combination of mystery, humor, and a little bit of romance.

I thought this was an interesting book. I wasn't bored while reading it, which is a good thing. I liked the adventures in there, how Margo and Q at the beginning of the book, did little "missions". I also liked the adventure that Quentin and his little crew did looking for Margo. They all missed graduation and drove for many many hours, just to look for Margo. The ending of the book is the part I did not like. I thought Margo and Quentin were going to stay together, but it just didn't happen. I personally think they should make a seaquel. I gave it a 4 star, because I liked how interesting it is, but I didn't like the ending very much.
