There is no doubt that Green is a talented writer, however, he writes books that really don't appeal to me. Like many others have said, the two main characters in Paper Towns are like his other characters in Alaska and Katherines. The somewhat awkward but brilliant guy who dreams of the girl who eludes him, the girls who is also brilliant, but mysterious and a bit off. I actually wanted to know more about Margo, to read the story from her perspective. I was in no way interested in the road trip or in Quentin's attempts at finding her because I already knew that even if he did find her, she had already left him behind. I wanted to follow her, not follow him following her. There is a teen audience for this one, but I think adults who read teen fiction will find it more appealing than actual teens.
