Paper Towns

Paper Towns - John Green

Title : Paper Towns

Author : John Green


One of the reasons that I liked this book were the characters and the mystery in the story !
Quentin and through his search for Margo he finds out that Margo wasn’t the girl he thought she was or the girl she pretended to be and this makes Quentin think about how people are different versions of themselves when they are with different people !! At one point, he thinks Margo might have committed suicide and he really worked hard to find her ... at some moments I felt I was getting angry at Margo for hurting Quentin and i thought she was just a drama queen who wants all the attention on her ! but in the end I understood why she had to do what she did and i kinda fell related to Margo ! her need to escape everything ! and all of her actions were justified.

If you have read any of John Green’s other books and liked those, you should definitely pick up this book as well! it is just really well-written, the characters are really interesting and it makes you think about some questions in life.

Favorite quotes

“That’s always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they’re pretty. It’s like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead of taste.”

“It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.”

“I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met.”

“When did we see each other face-to-face? Not until you saw into my cracks and I saw into yours. Before that, we were just looking at ideas of each other, like looking at your window shade but never seeing inside. But once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. The light can get out.”

“As much as life can suck, it always beats the alternative.”

"she loved mysteries so much that she became one.”
