book review

When I was really disappointed

Paper TownsPaper Towns by John Green

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS.

2.5 stars rounded up to 3!

I don’t always hate YA. No kidding.

 

Blurb :
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.

Ummm… really??

I am disappointed. I expected this book to be way better than this. There are a few things which I didn’t like…

1. Incomplete love story.
2. Similarity between Paper Towns and Looking For Alaska.
3. Disappointing and incomplete end.

Margo goes away with some clues so that people could remember her, not find her. Really?? This book going good. Really good till like 95% of it and then they (Q and friends) finally find Margo, she tells them that they were NOT suppose to find her! OMG she was so foolish. All the beautiful writing didn’t work for with with such characters. The only (few) reason(s) I gave it 3 stars were 1. Ben and his sarcastic comments plus, 2. use of metaphors and 3. I didn’t to disappoint my friend who recommended it.

So that is it. Enough ranting.
