The protagonist of this book, Colin Singleton, is a child prodigy - a very annoying anagramming, Math-theorising child prodigy. He has also been in a relationship with nineteen (technically eighteen) Katherines and from the very beginning of the book, is trying to get over having been dumped by the most recent one by embarking on a roadtrip to Gutshot (!), Tennessee with his wisecracking sidekick and Muslim friend Hassan.

Colin really gets on my nerves at times with his moaning and groaning, and the multitude of graphs is for the truly nerdy (though I did find the appendix written by Green's math professor friend quite interesting), but I guess Green is just weirdly endearing enough that I'd still give this book a three.
