Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificent Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life—summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. When their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Margo has disappeared. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they’re for him. Embarking on an exhilarating adventure to find her, the closer Q gets, the less he sees the girl he thought he knew.

      John Green strikes again! This is a wonderful (but kind of sad) book. Margo and Quentin are two great characters. I rate this five stars: romance, sad, but still funny.

              This was an amazing piece of work from an already well known author. Paper Towns in very unique in the way that rather focusing on what is happening in the book's universe, it focuses on what exactly is happening inside Quentin "Q" Jacobsen's mind. From his unhealthy love for his childhood friend, Margo Roth Spiegleman to his opinion on poetry and music, Greene allows you into the mind of Q. The plot seems simple; Margo disappears and Q wants to know where she is. However, this doesn't stop our author from giving the novel more complexity and underlying meanings. Q's utter fascination with Margo is, in my opinion, the most peculiar thing about the story. Although she pays him no attention, he is interested in her life. He thinks of her as an exotic creature rather another girl his age. To my disappointment, I soon learned that Margo was NOT in fact an exotic creature. She was only interesting because no one understood her reasons, which was mainly because she kept them secret. Margo always wants something dramatic and boisterous without previous thought of ho it may affect others. If you are in search of a book that will open your mind to new concepts about life and people, this is the book for you. If, however, you crave a book that answers every one of your "why's", I must inform you the novel seems to lack that aspect. Nevertheless this is a timeless book that you will not be able to relate to, but instead grow from.
