Who is the real Margo?
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew...
I enjoyed both of the John Green books I have read, and once I saw the trailer for Paper Towns, I knew that I needed to get my hands on this one. I think the Fault in Our Stars has to be my favorite so far, but Paper Towns came in a close second.
- Margo Roth Spiegelman was amazing. I loved her personality. She was odd, a bit dark, eccentric and yet popular and the "queen bee." The night that she crawled through the Quentin's window with a whole plan of revenge was epic.
- Q was so stinkin' cute. I loved his crazy friendships and the way the boys had such a realistic relationship. I love that they can fight and be loyal to each other. I love when books have portrayal of actual relationships.
- I love a little mystery - something to keep the book moving and give you the desire to move through the pages.
- I loved the road trip part of the book. The details of the trip planned down to the minute, peeing into pop bottles and running through gas station to grab food and pay for gas in lightening speed.
- The book was a lot slower than I expected it to be. I felt like it too me a long while to get through it. I liked the story and the bit of mystery, but it was pretty baseline.
- I would love to have a split POV in the book - or maybe a whole book from Margo's POV. I liked Q but I was far more interested in what was going on in Margo's head.
