Sam Had anyone else started this? I started it yesterday, I'm 25% through but reserving judgement until I've read a bit more.

Sam I finished this last night, I'll be interested to hear what other people thought.


Cristal Punnett I've just finished this book, and I have to say I was disappointed, on the plus side to characters were believable, and the dialogue was funny, but the obsession was over the top (view spoiler), this was my first John Green maybe I'll read some of his other books and enjoy them more.


Susan (suzybop) | 90 comments I enjoyed Will Grayson, Will Graysonand An Abundance of Katherines more. There's something missing from Paper Towns but I can't put my finger on it.

Sam For me it was Margos character. I just couldn't figure her out.

Cristal, I agree with you about it being over the top. It was not my favorite John Green novel so perhaps you will enjoy some of his other works more too.


Melissa Coyle | 1557 comments Finished this one this afternoon. The book had a nice flow, but the teenage drama was bit much for me.
