Honestly, rating this book was hard. Three stars was the low end, four stars would have been the higher end. I went with three only because this book did seem a bit repetitive. It's short, and a quick read, so it should not be repetitive. Another issue with the novel is his search for his mother. It's like the author already had a huge plan for what would happen when Taylor found his mother but did not want to give the plot too soon. The third, and I swear the last, issue was that it was predictable. Oh, not the plot itself, because Green can just throw the most random of things at the audience, which I enjoy. But how it all came about, that was predictable. And if I guess it, it's too darn predictable. I will be the first to admit I am not very good at predicting what is going to happen!

Still, an excellent read with smooth prose. The first novel was excellent and I suspect the next will be as well. This one just went through the sophomore slump. With his ability to create characters I could not say I would be willing to give up on this. Just had a few issues.
