Paper Towns

"Forever is composed of nows." ~ pg. 233

Quentin "Q" Jacobsen is in love with the adventurous Margo Spiegelman. Perhaps in love is an understatement. Q is obsessed with Margo to the point that he idolizes her. So when she disappears on one of her adventures and leaves behind clues, Q does not hesitate to follow them in hopes of finding his dream girl.

As an avid reader, it takes an average of 3-4 days to start and finish a novel. It is a problem when it takes over a week to finish a book. Such is the case with Paper Towns. This book would've ended up a DNF if it wasn't a buddy read with my bookheart, The Nappy Bookish Babe. I heart The Fault in Our Stars but John Green has a way of creating unrealistic exaggerated teen characters. I did however learn about copyright traps, paper streets and paper towns so thanks for the geography lesson, John Green.

Paper Towns is in theaters now. (See the movie trailer below.) I hope their adventure translates better on the big screen but I am in no rush to see it. Share your thoughts if you've already seen Paper Towns and let me know if it is better than the book.
