Date i read the book: March 21, 2015-March 23, 2015
Yes, I can see her almost perfectly in this cracked darkness.
Margo Roth Spiegelman… you’ll be reading that name a bunch of times… so start getting used to it.
Margo, the it-girl of Orlando, Florida… the one who has no backbone, audacious and can astound people with her adventures, is Quentin Jacobsen’s neighbor. despite the social gap, both seemed to be acquaintances, until one night changed everything for them.
and the day after that changed everything for Quentin Jacobsen.
‘Cause what would a boy do if the one he loves suddenly disappears and leaves clues for him to find and solve?
and what would a man do, when his damsel feels like in distress?of course, save her ass up right?
and that’s what Q did.
“I don’t know who she is anymore, or who she was, but I need to find her.” ~ Quentin
okay, so i decided that this year, aside from spoiling people with quotes from the books, i’ll also add the date it was published, and how long i read the book, and whatever comments i want to say to the story and/or characters.
Quentin- he’s the knight in shining armor… only in desperate measures.
Margo- is a self-centered Beyatch… though i understand her reasons for why she did what she did in the first place, which makes her a reasonable beyatch…
Margo’s parents- deserve the worst parents ever in Orlando, Florida award… ’cause other states have their own worst parents… (based from the books i’ve read.)
Quentin’s parents- are the most laid-back parents i’ve known… i mean seriously?! (view spoiler)
Ben- is the bipolar person of this book, seriously dude, are you pro-Margo or anti-Margo??
Radar- bestes friend anyone can have…
the story was well-written, it has this mystery-detective-romance-suspense-geography-teen fiction-thing going on. and i like how i feel like i’m reading every genre in just one book.
although the ending left me with nothing but “What ifs?” and “What happens to?”, i know that a good story usually ends with those questions asked by the readers… (i still want a book two though)
no matter how much i hate this book for making me useless right now because i’m wallowing instead of reviewing for my midterms tomorrow, i still want to thank John Green, for pointing out in the author’s note that no matter how much you desert something/some place, it’ll always be there, and as long as one person knows of that place, it’ll never be gone.
and by the way, i’m starting to like Paper Towns, so i’m going to find one near me, and i’ll never leave once i get there. 🙂
