Paper Towns

Posted on Updated on

‘The town was paper but the memories were not’

Once Paulo Coelho said, ‘if I write more than one book over the same idea then people will, of course, read and love my book but they will get tired of me and they won’t learn anything new which is the most important reason of be writing.’ I think writes like him are born only once in every century.

John Green, no doubt is an exceptional writer but alas! All his books have the same repetitive idea. I enjoyed Paper towns but I didn’t love it like other John Green work but i loved the title, though. It was fun and adventurous at one point and pretty boring and Margo Roth Spiegelmanic, cuz John Green used her name again and again that it was pretty irritating, at other point. The story as well as the writing of John Green didn’t need any introduction as it is and always have been the same as say, Looking for Alaska or An Abundance of Katherines.

The characters are what makes Paper Towns so intriguing. I never found this book absolutely boring, just slow at parts. What makes this book interesting and exhilarating is that in the start and in the end it is deep and has many different level of humans and ways of reasoning. A truly compelling and thoughtful book. But I was desperately and utterly disappointed in the end cuz in the whole story, Q thought of Margo as an un-human alienist or out of this word kind of amazing girl but in the end Margo wasn’t what I expected or what John Green wanted me to expect. The whole book just so overly put the level of Margo Roth Spiegelman so high that I was frustrated in the end. But it was true that:

Nothing ever happens like you imagine it will,” she says.
“But then again, if you don’t imagine, nothing ever happens at all.”

All in all, even with the deep and literal part of the book, it was a quick read but still I wasn’t impressed. The plot was weak and I didn’t like Margo Roth Spiegelman, Quentin. I only loved the only character in the book worth praising and who really kept the book fun going and he was, ITWASAKIDNEYINFECTION. Whenever the book was about to get boring, Bloody Ben took it from the bottom and took it to the next level. I really loved his character.
