Paper TownsPaper Towns by John Green

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

John Green does it again! That is not to say that I have loved everything he has written. I don’t have fond memories of Looking for Alaska. I may have to try it again someday to see if I just wasn’t in the mental space for it. But this one, Paper Towns, hit me just right. I can see why it became a movie. I can’t imagine how they are going to do it, but I knew I wanted to read it first. Now I can’t wait to see it.

Using the male text-to-speech narration on my Fire, this story unfolded itself in a non-unstoppable way. I cared for all the characters and the mysteries that the main character, Q, was out to solve. Most of those are just the questions we all ask, but especially as we get ready for college and the next part of our lives.

Knowing this was written with young adults in mind, I was very impressed with the classics that were alluded to. AND the research was clearly done on the paper towns was quite evident. But even with those thoughts in mind, the story drives the reader. In fact, I miss the characters and wish to know what happens after they get into their careers or college. Even so, it ends nicely.

I might read this again someday with the narration of Audible Whispersync to see how it reads out that way. Try this book. I think you’ll like it.

#egypt – CWin Post. Is out! Need I say that my husband is amazing? He has been able to grab a whole lot more sources than I have in Dar49 Daily. That may be that his interests are more ‘newsy’ or political than mine. I just love how Paper.li can make papers that can suit everyone’s needs. Scriptorioum’s Paper.li is more books and writing related. Dar49 Daily is more about science, writing, and health–fibromyalgia, specifically.

By sharing these here I get the best of all three, and so do my readers! Please check out the Paper.li site and see how easy it is to make your own paper. I want to see what others come up with. It is very interesting to me. I hope it is for you, too.
